Are all X-link soft discs as flexible as the disc in this video? Where you can easily fold it twice into a quarter circle in freezing weather. I just received a Ridge in trade from the marketplace that the other person claimed was X-link soft. But it seems to be identical to my medium Vibram discs. And it is not nearly as flexible as the disc in the video. Are regular run softs not that different from mediums, or was the disc I got disc just mis-decribed somewhere along the line? The M or S on the bottom is no longer there to see what it was originally labeled as.

Sounds like it is X-Link Regular/M.

Although, I believe that the newer run of X-Link soft won't be as soft/bendable. At least that is my understanding.

Still digging my Summits for putting. If you have little fingers and like low profile putters, check these out.

^^Started with a Ridge for putting then switched to my Summit. I don't have little hands, but it being understable works better with my putting style as I get further away from the basket.

I think the Summit is a highly under-rated thrower. I love changing speeds and angles with mine. Its a short range hyzer flip miracle worker.

The new stuff will roll up pretty easily. Sounds like there was some confusion and you got an X-Link Medium.

I love using it for these 100' tight shots too. Just pop it up with little to no effort and watch it sail straight. I've never hit so many 80-120' shots as I do with my Summit runs.

I want to throw some love out for the Ibex. Awesomely straight, best at shooting gaps at full power, and no fear of the wind. I still use other mids for approaching and shaping lines, but when I need to gun something down, the Ibex has been wonderful. It also has taken away some shots I might have considered powering down a fairway driver on.
