So how's that X-Link Fusion blend going? We're just about past Fall '11 at this point...

I still have 4 red testers.

As for the Fusion...I think I am the person who really wanted that to happen? I kept asking for something in between the soft and normal. I don't know what happened with it? I would have loved to have tried it out.

Ordered some softs in all varieties from gggt. I am really looking forward to the ibex in a soft. They also have medium and firm trak's for 10.50 right now.

Steve;
I gotta chance to play a round with the Super Firm Ridge today.

I use my Ridge for most shots 100'-40', and have for a year now. It easy to put on many different lines.
I found I was trying too hard outside of 40' with the VP, pushing it, so the Ridge makes a nice transition for more distance with less effort, without really changing the mold, or my grip.

So the Super Firm is REALLY straight, like XD straight. It does fade a little at the end, but its still too dead to glide, so it never strayed far from the basket.
No skips, no rollaways, nice and flat all the way in.

My regular X link has a little dome to it, the super firm is dead flat, that might have something to do with my ability to make it turn.
I cant anny the new one as clean as the old one yet, but since it doesnt flex at all, it easier to take full power standstill runs straight at the basket.

Although this is like KC Pro stiff, its not glossy or oily, and the grip was perfect in 40 weather today. I really like the way it comes out of my hand clean, no griplock issues at all.

So I'm keeping it in the bag, and I need you to put me down for at least one when they come out again in a year.

Thanks dude.

A soft Ibex would be the best thing ever.
All models were made. Store availability will vary.

I don't foresee it getting grippier with rounds quickly since I've played a few and don't notice it getting better.
Vegan Ray tried something to get the tackiness back, I don't remember what it was. He used it on the soft, but it may work on the mediums too. Some sort of rubber treatment I think.
