That MObex sounds like something I might be interested in. Here is to hoping the Obex is likeable too.

This disc that you do a run up for though also sounds very interesting. Are we going to get our First Vibram max distance driver?

Threw a team members Obex yesterday at Disc Nation. fun disc. definitely right along the Roc comparisons. You won't need to spend $50 on a premium Roc when you can get the Obex

Ibex + Obex + Trak can shred a lot of courses. It does have plenty of glide as well. You can pretty much kill the idea of Vibram discs not having glide. Easy 350ft on a hyzer for the team guy(and myself).

it isn't that vibram discs don't glide. They don't glide well. Also that was mostly focused on the first round of putters (VP, Ridge, Summit) because they all shared the same top. You can beat some more glide into them, but they will not compare to other discs. And the Sole was just a pendulum swing "You want a disc that glides? Fine, here is a magnet copy"

Obex is a decent disc. Not as overstable as I thought it might be?? We'll it is for backhand, but if I throw it forehand with power it flips over in its flight every time. If I throw it soft it is very overstable. It is overstable no matter how hard I throw it backhand.

Definitely a good disc for someone who likes Rocs, or any other overstable midrange.
I'd like to see an UBEX, as for my style even the Ibex is overstable for me.

I am aware of this. most people still complain. they do glide WELL, especially the new models.

lets stop talking about glide...back to the obex...

I had the same experience with the Ascent. Turns and burns when thrown forehand, but is crazy overstable backhand.

I have Trak's in 154+155 and they have tons of glide.

Wish I could get more in those weights or less.

I have hundreds of posts in this thread. Only a few of them negative. You have no idea what you're talking about.
