It performed like a champ today. I threw a couple drives with my Diamond to loosen up and then played with the Ibex for almost the rest of the round. I think my issue is I was throwing while standing up too straight so it was putting a slight anny on it. When I focused on putting some bend into it the Ibex would just take off. Highlight shot of the day was a 150 foot arrow into the chains that took a bounce off the pole and hung there in the chains in flight position until I got there to take a picture and yank it out.

Messed around with my Firm Obex today. It is exactly what I wanted it to be. Between the Obex and Ibex I have every mid range shot covered. Thanks Vibram for producing another solid mold. I am looking forward to some distance drivers.

Oh Steve, I know your tester Obex's were made in Medium, but all of the production run Obex's out there are Firm. When am I going to be able to purchase a Medium Obex from my favorite local retailer and Vibram Pinnacle retailer who worked so hard to get you out here to Colroado recently?

Our order form said they would be available the 3rd to order. So I suspect you will see them soon.

Steve already said a mistake was made and a double batch of firms was made instead of one of each. I'm sure they're creeping out into stores at this very moment.

That's true. I know they sent shipments out late last week and more on Tuesday.

The world is right, I picked up my Medium Obex today. A little heavier than I wanted but it will more than do. It is so much fun to throw. Wish I had it for my round earlier in the day. I know it would have saved me at least one throw, maybe.

Where did you get the medium Obex?

Will you be selling discs at the Worlds Flymart or will they only be available from retailers at the Flymart?

Anyone sitting on or know of any real good looking Traks at their local shops? I've been having trouble finding some good color combo's in them.

Please don't point me to eBay and/or DiscGolfCenter, I already cleaned them out.
