I'd like to see this as well.

And I like the apex for the DD name...good call.

I don't like the Apex personally because it sounds too much like their mid range discs. Give me soemthing completely different that will say distance. I also think they should rename all their other disks so that it is as simple to think about as their mid ranges.

Ibex - striaght like the I
Obex - overstable Ibex
and in the future...
Ubex - understable Ibex
Mobex - massively overstable Ibex

I think the disctance driver should be called The Incline. It works becasue it is an I and the distance driver is likely going to be on the same stability as the Ibex.

Renaming their entire lineup at this point might be a bit problematic. I do agree the naming scheme with the mid ranges fits well. I don't like the Apex name because Innova's already got the Ape. I would have suggested Pinnacle instead but evidently Legacy uses that for a line of their plastic. Maybe the Peak?

Personally I think the Vibram names are very unique and original, and that's part of the reason Vibram is such a cool company. They are thinking outside the box but also tying the theme to their company as a whole. No other company can really say that! I do agree Apex sounds close to Ape but I also think it is a pretty BA name for a big distance driver. Peak is solid as well though.

I dunno, I wouldn't want to call my first foray into distance drivers as my "Apex." Kinda like peaking in high school....I love reading all the Innova descriptions on their older fairway drivers and seeing, "The farthest driver in the market...." or something like that. Name them after mountain ranges or something...who know, though, we may have seen the "peak" of vibram rubber tech with the Ascent and Trak, I mean, really, no speed 9 discs yet? I'm fine with this, I love my SOLSs so much.

@nomex,

You do have a point there. Course on the flip side Vibram does have the Summit already which is similar in definition to an Apex. But maybe it could be used in the future....what about Crest?

^^^ I did forget about the Summit, mainly because the Obex has been approach and putter the past month. But maybe that's their "summit" in putting? My Summit was a firm 176, but after seeing my Obex Medium 178g perform round after round in ring of fire, as it was consistently the first to the basket and was not easily knocked out at 178g, I kind of put the other putters aside and started working with the Obex and got two more for backup.
