I just got my ibex in and have thrown it about half dozen times in the yard and this thing is awesome! flies dead straight and holds any line, plus when it gets below freezing temps here i wont have to worry about the disc geting too slick like regular x-link.

This echoes what I have been hearing. At our team challenge one fellow told me he loves throwing the soft Trak and Ascent and can't believe how well they fly. Note: the drivers tend to exaggerate bad form so if you have bad form you should either stay away or pick one up as a training disc.

Yeah, I havent thrown the ascent in a while and the trak just recently went back into the bag. retooling my throw and breaking my leg shortly after has screwed things up

Just received my shipment of Xlink soft from GGGT. I am even happy with the colors. The Sole has a very sunken dome. Is that normal? I have a Ridge already and the new one does not appear to be any firmer, but we will see when I throw it. Now to get out and throw them all.

Yours look pretty similar in coloration to the batch that I got. I requested more unique colors when I ordered so mine ended up with a bit more variation in the color on each disc but not much.

With the softness of the material, sunken tops seem quite likely. Let us know how the fly for you!

My Firms became fliptastic after a week but both my Mediums have held their same stable goodness since the day I purchased them over a year ago.

Finally went ahead and ordered a Soft Summit from GGGT. Flying blind and I hope its not ugly brown and orange. /: Don't like putting with those but like them when I want to go for it on the approach. Hoping it lays down better than the regular by just flopping.
