Does the disc flight differ between the different disc stiffness?

I'm very happy to hear that Marshall Street will soon carry Vibram. A good place to look now is www.discgolfstation.com (Disc Golf Station). Grant is a great guy and I've gotten very good customer service from him.

I believe so, I've had an Ibex in soft, medium, and firm, the soft and the medium seemed to be the same stability if not the soft being more stable and more glide. The soft and the medium flew dead straight from a flat release and usually died out before they faded (I dont like to throw too high). The firm however if i throw it flat at full power it likes to drift to the right and continue the path before dying, again maybe a 20 ft max height off the ground, but it turn and burn. On a hyzer it flips up nicely, the medium and soft would hold the hyzer angle and ride it till the finish. Aside from the glide I love the Ibex, though it does help me knowing I usually wont go too far past the basket.

Here is what I have observed in my usage with Vibram discs... this may not be accurate..

I have found that FIRM Vibrams can actually be beat in to be less stable than they were when I got them.

I have found that MEDIUM Vibrams maintain their initial stability to a ridiculous degree.

I have found that SOFT Vibrams (Actually.. the only soft I have thrown has been a soft Summit) are less stable out of the box than their firm and medium counterparts.

Anyone agree, or am I smoking crack?

My Trak is the only one I have so far in X-Link and Soft. I notice no difference in stability. The only difference I see is distance. I can regularly get the Soft out 20 feet or more than the X-Link. The only time they are together is when I get a bad throw with the Soft...the only time. No idea why, that is just how they work for me.

I swear soft x-link glides more than medium and firm.

I would like to try the Ibex and Ridge in soft based on what I have seen with my Traks ( have 3 now and they are all exactly the same) and Ascent softys.
