My firm hasn't changed much if at all in the months I've had it.

The only thing that has dinged any of my Vibrams is missing a line and launching them into a construction site. The ends of metal pipes tend to try and cut the discs awfully hard Overall, apart from that, I have not been able to beat them up one bit.

I have an Ascent that I've thrown a couple of thousand times. It's beat to pretty straight. It took a lot of use before it changed.

Trak straight?

Closer to a well seasoned DX Teebird. It doesn't have the glide of a Trak.

It's laser, no movement at all, great on low tunnel shots straight.

It was my first Ascent and I've thrown it more than any other driver that I currently own. You can see the wear and tear.

You can absolutely see wear and tear on Vibram discs. The change in characteristics is minimal when compared to plastic counterparts. I have little nicks in severl of my discs, but usually only when I throw them directly into a rock from close distance.

I also threw my Trak over a fence the other day and watched a car drive right over the top of it. Left nice tire marks but the stability of the disc has not changed. Then again, the Trak is a little flippy for me, but very controlable and will hold most any line you put it on.

so correct me if im wrong here, but it seems to me weight dosent really affect vibram discs as it does others. i putt with a 165 med sole, and drive with it often as well. i threw a 175 med sole and the flight was the same. on drives and putts. my 165 can handle about 370ft of power without flipping and the 175 was about the same. anyone else have this experience?

Well.... my 165 medium Summit is definitely easier to flip than my 174 medium Summit. Not sure if this is true for anyone else.

I mean... the Summit is definitely less stable than a Sole... so generally, I would expect more of a change in flight based on weight for a less stable disc.
