Those are the two questions I want to know.
What's next is being worked on. Really.

Our sponsored players, listed in no particular order:

Bob Graham
Dana Vicich
Vinnie Miller
Aaron Ala
Steve Dodge
Ross Brandt
Greg Wintrob
Chris Deitzel
Mike Dussault
Mitch Sonderfan
Jerel Davis
Marielle Mallar

I will try to get player bio pages on the website within the week.

Aaron has put $5 on being able to make them today, which would put them in stores in a couple weeks. I'm not quite as confident as he. They are pretty darn soft, but not quite as soft as Vegan Ray's, if you know what I mean.

I use the Summit as my touch approach disc because I think the Ridge catches chains better. I'm trying to determine a repeatable way to test disc roll-aways as we should determine if this issue is real.

I am very excited to be able to put out a grippy and durable driver in our X-Link compound. Agreed.

I am not in charge of purchasing for the Maple Hill gift shop, but there is a nice selection of discs and a complete selection of Vibram discs.

So I really need to invest in putters. Like many newer players I invested a lot in drivers but I am discing down an realizing my biggest flaw. Putting and putters. I used an aviar in just a default mindset ("its Innova's main putter might as well us it") and I'm going to be trying other putters now.

However I don't want to blow $200 dollars to search through all the putters I want to try and the Vibram ones are the most expensive. What would you suggest trying (I'm driving with putters now also) because I want to try all three but I'll be danged if I can spend $60 to get them and then another $20-$40 to have a couple back ups. Is there an X-out program or anything like that?

A couple other questions.
1. Will Vibram be selling discs at the AM Worlds? (I am going to be at some of the events and totally want to pick up some stuff. I'm hoping buying them at an event would be cheaper than ordering them)
2. How could someone get involved in helping test if you do a mid-range or driver? (I'd be willing to send stuff back, I would just like to be involved in the process)
3. Any possibility for a hand out? (I'm not trying to hide looking for a freebie in the other parts of my post)

PM me if you would prefer.

(P.S. the putters I want to try out are the JK Aviar, MVP Ion, and the 3 Vibram putters)
