Good suggestions all. And I read this stuff, let it trickle into the brain cells that still work, and see what filters out when we go into the product development meetings. I will promise you that we are working on some stuff, I'm just being mighty quiet about what it is. I haven't even told my mom.

I was unsubscribed to this thread for many months and only recently jumped back on. I'd LOVE an overstable mid. The Ibex is a solid disc but it's not for me. I'd love something akin to the VP I can put a lot on. I'm thinking of something as fast as a Q Sentinel upto a Wasp.

You haven't told your mom?!?!?! She is going to be bummed out when she finds you have been keeping secrets.

I understand the need to keep it all on the down low. Plus it makes it more fun for the rest of us to keep guessing.

Summit is a completely under-rated disc.

The Firm Ibex/FIBEX feels nice. Heading out to toss a few now.

This cannot be overstated. I like me some Vibram but with their current line up covering the vast majority of golf shots the only thing left that would really get me nutty is X-Link Fusion.

I really couldn't care less if Vibram released a max speed driver, I'd give it a whirl but I doubt I'd go nutty over it. As far as disc gaps I guess a pred type slot is really where they're lacking most, but overstable driver isn't a favorite for me so I really wouldn't be that interested and I bet i'm not alone on that. Don't get me wrong it needs to be done, it's just not all that "exciting". Now that I think about it a modified version of the Ascent that could actually stay in the air would be awesome. I really want to like that disc, I just can't ever get it to travel anywhere near as far as a Teebird would. The Trak seems to have some glide staying power but it's a little too understable for primary duty.

But seriously, X-Link Fusion. Now.

First thing;


This is really outstanding Steve. You have a budding artist in your midst.
I would like you to personally thank the Vibram elf who built this, for me, because I think they did a great job.

But I have questions.

This disc was obviously built up with the colors arranged in a particular pattern, not just thrown randomly in the mold.
There was some thought put into it.
So how much freedom do you allow to the elves ?

Obviously , they could not intentionally build up a mold that might be a trade mark violation, like a Chevy Bow Tie logo, and I'm sure they cant spell out words, especially swear words, in a disc, but, do you encourage them to exersize thier artistic creativity, as in the disc above ?
Or are they just mindless droids you keep alive with feeding tubes soley to do your bidding ?

Oh, and thanks Deezy.
