That article is REALLY cool. I really want to day props to Steve Dodge. That dude is doing a helluva job! He also says in the article that Vibram Disc is working on some exciting projects for the future. CAN'T WAIT.

Great read...and not because I'm in it. Love Vibram, and this article goes a long way in showing why this "shoe company" is making such headway into the world of Disc Golf.

Two questions mister.



Are the production runs now " blue " like, or " orange " ?

Will you run some around a buck sixty, which is my fav LRD weight ?

In a Lace update from Justin over at CommunityDiscs.com, he said that he was told Laces in the lower 160 range should be hitting the stores sometime in the next couple weeks.

All y'all and your rave reviews of this article forced me to read it tonight and stay up way past my bedtime.

Totally Worth It!

I can't wait until I am not sick anymore and can get out and throw my Vibram discs more.

The production run is the stable version. I'm hoping for a production release of the flippy one, because I can bomb my flippy red Proto.

Haha! The Lace just came out! But....I confess I am constantly thinking of discs Vibram could add to their line as well. The article above said that Vibram is currently working on some "exciting projects" for the future so my guess is another disc or two are already in the works. As I've posted before, I'd like to see the one of the next discs Vibram releases be something similar to a Firebird/Predator. That "control driver" range is a big gap in their lineup and would add to it just like the Firebird for Innova and the Predator for Discraft. I think it's possible they might release the understable version of the Lace as a new model as well. It would be good for big turnover bombs! What do people think?

The Lace is already a turnover bomb...

I am pretty sure it will be easy for Vibram to release the understable version of the Lace and I suspect we will see it within a year. I would like to see the Predator Vibram disc as well since the Preadator is the one Non Vibram disc I reach for most often. The article made mention that Vibram is looking to fill out their chart of discs, Max Distance, Fairway, Mid Range, and Putter on one side, Massively Overstable, Overstable, Stable, Understable on the other.
