Sitting here at Ross's looking through stacks of tasties he got from Vibram. Regarding ibexes, more stable in firm vs med? Dome vs flat?

My thoughts on the Lace could be summarized as follows:

"Lets see how this shoe flies..."

*Line up on teebox - throw*



"Holy ****! That was a Vibram disc!?"

I really wish the testers had a chance to throw the good laces

I got a 168 Lace in the mail from Community Discs last week and I must say, I see a big difference in performance compared to my 175/174s. The lighter Lace is a great distance driver and will flip over but not too much for those 350+ drives. The heavier ones won't hold the anhyzer quite long enough for me to get the distance I would like but act more like a really fast hyzer to straight line holding machine. I love them all and will have to keep a 168/169 in my bag as well as the 175s for a good coverage of a variety of long shots.

I'm glad I'm not the only that thinks that about the 168 Lace. It will flip but not completely over and then trek back (RHBH). Glad I choose to throw the lighter one instead of the heavier 174 I have as well.

Don't think we're ignoring you... I only have medium, somewhat domey Ibexes, so... I can't really answer. I'm a big fan of the Vibram mediums in all of their molds. I don't know of anyone that has a firm one.

I am curious to hear your opinion. I picked up a 167 on Black Friday and throw it on just about every tee box I need to throw long off of. I would really like to see them release the flippy version of the Lace and then creat an Overstable version. Trying to get the Nuke Trinity out of the bag.
