How do Vibram discs dye in case you want to have a custom job done? (Now I want a Captain America Ridge no matter what!)

I would think filling in the gaps in the others weak points would be smarter way to sell discs.
Start with making the fastest disc on the planet. I dont think Innova or Discraft has used the maximum allowable wing configuration yet, maybe see what your engineering team can come up with in that area.
I disagree. In fact, if Vibram made a Teebird and Roc clone as durable as Xlink putters, I would dump Innova altogether.

I would probably join in dumping most of the discs in the middle of my bag if they could make a slightly longer Ridge, and then a disc slightly longer than that. If you take what works for you, stretch it a little, making a solid progression towards the eventuality of having a long bomber driver, you will not have to make a ton of different discs and molds like the two big names in hopes of hitting the one or two that fly right for the majority of players.

Steve, weird question, but what do you sell in the gift shop? Any discs? If so I assume Vibram stuff, but any besides that?

[QUOTE=waynewf;386413]Steve, just wanted to say that I've tried just about every putter out there and the Ridge is the best thing I've ever thrown and has probably taken at least 2 strokes off my average since I picked it up.
So when am I going to see a Vibram mid range disc?QUOTE]

I think we are getting close to a little something something. With all of the testing that goes in here, I am learning that patience is a true virtue.

Thanks for the kudos on the Ridge. I am loving how straight it flies off the tee. Crazy predictable. Aaron and I were playing catch with one yesterday alternating straight runs, annys and hyzer shots and it occured to me that we were not moving very much to catch the disc. Yay!
