I'd recommend everyone manufacturing a disc do this to avoid confusion in the market. We will do it with all of our discs going forward.
Nice I love the secretiveness on a much more serious note... DAMN YOU VABRAM AND YOUR AWESOME DISCS!!!

Keep up the good work cause I am loving every mold. I was resistant at first and thought it was just another gimick company, boy was I wrong. Ill be filling some more slots in my bag with Vibram soon Im sure.

It is time for me to stop and listen. Thanks for all of the feedback.

1. Regarding the application process: I have condensed it from two pages to one and have made the entire application online. It should take less than five minutes and there is no longer a need for a fax machine.

2. Regarding the multiple shipments, we implemented a ship and cancel backorders policy at the start of this year. As of 2012, any backorders that are shipped (because I over rule the policy or we make a mistake), we pay the shipping.

Please keep the feedback coming. I make errors, and I do my best to fix them.

Ugh. Speaking of making errors ... I have been having the Obexes shipping out to arrive at stores on Friday, thinking that was the 28th. This error was caused completely by me and many stores will be getting their Obexes on Friday. Also, the plant accidentally made a double order of Obex Firms and we did hot have any Obex Mediums to ship out, so the Obex Mediums won't be at stores until next week. My apologies to all those who were hoping to go buy one tomorrow and my thanks for having that thought. Please bear with us one more day.

Obexes are scheduled to arrive Friday at the following stores:

Aces and Chains
Disc Golf Center
Disc Golf World
Disc Nation
Phenix Disc Sports
Sun King Ent. Inc.
Gotta Go Gotta Throw
Disc Golf Station
Macamco LLC
Maple Hill
Glide Disc Golf
Augusta Golf Park
Everyday Disc Golf
Snowman Disc Golf
Pure Flight
Moondoggie Sports
Rock 30 Games
Stillwater Summit Company

I've got a lot of phone calls to make. My apologies. When I told the folks to ship, I told them to make sure everything arrived by Friday instead of Thursday. This was an error of my making. I over-promised and under-delivered. I will learn from this.

I figured this thread would be the quickest and least disruptive way to get the answers I am looking for from some vibram enthusiasts:

I am currently happy with my bag, but I am also a very plastic-curious thrower and Vibram has peaked my interest of late. The area of my bag that traditionally has changed the most would probably be my stable - under stable slots. This means I have been strongly considering a drive to GGGT to grab me a trak / ibex combination to see if they could win out over my Rivers / Fuses.

Just curious how they might stack up in relation to what I have listed above for a average of 380-400 ft of power thrower in terms of stability / glide / line shaping, etc. I've heard good things about the ibex and trak, but money is tight with tuition bills coming up and what not, so I just want some insight on what I would be buying and how people like these molds.

Not sure how he would be classified. He sells out of his gas station.
