What do you throw for fairway drivers right now? I would recommend trying out an Ascent or a Trak if you want a driver. Of course you can never go wrong with a Sole. I have a soft and medium that I switch out based on how warm it is outside.

I'm thinking maybe a Medium Sole + Medium Obex?

or Medium sole + soft sole.

or Medium sole + another ibex?
I definitely recommend a Medium Obex to go with your Ibex, those two discs cover basically any midrange shot you'll ever see on the course. And as much as I like all the other Vibram discs, IMO the heart of their lineup is their putters. Definitely try a putter and it seems like you're interested in the Sole, which is a great choice.

Those are my recommendations, but any disc from Vibram is a great choice. You'll probably be addicted like me soon... I got curious, bought an Ascent and Ridge and about 4 months later, I've got every mold, 20+ Vibram discs, and I want more!

Probably time to start laying off the hallucinogens then.

Yeah, I am at 22 Vibram discs and need to get more backups. It really is an addiction but when the discs come off your hand so well it is really tough to want anything else.

Just got into the vibram game but in about a month have picked up a medium vp, a firm sole, a medium and firm ibex, a medium obex, a medium trak and ascent and a new medium lace. I'm hooked...they feel great in the hand. And it may be a head thing (but dg is a mental game) but I love the vibram logo to put my thumb on...feels like I get extra grip in it. Just traded for two more soles and need some backups now. I see my bag going mostly vibram.

Loving it

Started with an ibex... Love it, its the disc I throw most in my bag. Picked up a ridge next and loved it almost as much. Now Im hooked. Just traded for an obex which might just replace my wasp which is going to be hard to part with in my bag. Now that im hooked I just ordered an ascent, trak, and vp and really want to get a Lace. If Vibram keeps coming out with more options (over, under, and stable of each range disc) my bag will be all vibram. Still feel the need to keep discs to fill the voids that Vibram hasnt filled yet but I am ready for more!
Bring it on Steve, we want more!

Magnet. But even though the sole and magnet have the same wing, the sole is MUCH more stable.
