Spent the whole day with my Sole as my only putter. Loved it. Really need to get a regular x-link one and still have to get a Summit; however, I loved what I could get the Sole to do.

Blasted trees and almost no nicks in the plastic. Wasn't super stoked with how it was while wet, even compared to my champ plastics I was using.

So whenever I hear someone talk about Vibram releasing a new disc I keep secretly wishing they'd dump the Ascent and make a better version. A more stable Trak perhaps. Nothing gets me excited like stable Fairway drivers, mids and putters, and with the Ibex/Sole/Ridge there's nothing I would ask for in those slots.
I have the exact opposite response. There is usually nothing I'd rather throw off the tee than my Ascent. I can throw it about 300 feet with more accuracy than any other disc. When I really want to win (I'm not experimenting), it will always be in the bag. It's my "bread and butter" driver. The only thing close is the Striker, but I prefer the grip of the Ascent (med).

Are the Traks you have tried all the same firmness? That is one thing that varies. I prefer the Medium X-Link as it tends to be the most stable. The Medium Trak I picked up is very TeeBird like.

Firm X-link is a bit more understable than the Medium.

Soft X-Link has more glide then any of the other stiffnesses leading it to be more understable, theoretically. That is really theororetical.

I actually get more high speed turn from my Ascent than I do from my Trak but the Trak stays straight at the end and the Ascent comes back consistently for me.

Yeah, I saw the thing on the Vibram web page and got all giddy. I might need to save some more money for Vibram stuff.

I realize the mountain/hiking related names are gonna run out sometime. I love you Vibram, but I do hope you rename this one before release.
