It appears as though Mr. Dodge hasn't been on in a while, but I am reposting this becasue I am still very interested to hear what he has to say. Anyone else as interested as I am?

I have been very impressed with how Vibram continues to make an impact on Disc Golf and hope to see more in the future from Vibram as far as making an impact on the professional game as well as growth of the sport overall.

So the questions are:

1. What are your first thoughts as far as Prodigy is concerned?

2. How will their new business model and desire to help the sport affect what Vibram is already doing?

3. What plans does Vibram have moving forward as far as Pro Tour Sponsorship and growth of the sport overall?

I threw my 173M Lace into a decent headwind(15-20mph) yesterday and it fought it so nice. I threw my ESP Nuke just to see how it compared and the Lace did a much better job at fighting the wind. The Lace flipped a little but then still had a little bit of reliable fade at the end, where my Nuke flipped and didn't come back at the end.

I have a 167g and a 169g Lace and they fight headwind very nicely. Not as well as some of my OS stuff, but it didn't turn and burn on me.

Thanks Broady and Capt Jack. I don't need a massively overstable mid. I'm looking for a Wasp that isn't in Z plastic and likes to bounce off trees and keep going.

Carry on...

That would be perfect for me as well. Although I have a stack of Wasps at home that I have recently acquired.

Just ordered a 160g Lace from Justin. Can't wait to finally give it a try.

I have a 159g Trak thats been my go to disc for a while now, and im hoping the Lace will be similar to it just with more distance.

When I see Prodigy or some of these other companies get this kind of sense into their heads I think we will be moving forward.

I tried Vibram becasue a local pro started throwing Vibram and throwing it well.

I became stuck on Vibram when I noticed how well my putts were sticking to the chains.

I decided Vibram was the best disc golf company when they began to step up in sponsorship with a passion for growing the sport.

I will stay a Vibram guy because Mr. Dodge and those whom work with him are some really smart people who continue to make quality products and and support the sport in general and not just their own interests.
