Is your 159 Lace more flippy or do the lighter weights fly similar to the heavier weights?

Picked up a166g lace from Discnation. Throwing that next to a new 172g pro destroyer and I can't tell which one I like more. Both have extended my drives by around 30ft. Gonna keep both in the bag for a while before deciding which to keep.

Not a clue! I have only thrown one Lace, one time, and it wasn't that one. Just got them in yesterday; hoping to try them out this weekend.

Don't worry, you'll prefer the Lace more and more as that Destroyer gets beat up

True. And the thing is a monster on the FH drive as well.

Loving the one you hooked me up with when they were released.

So I was having a pretty off day at the course today (kept hitting every f***ing tree!) and managed to mess up the wings on a couple of my fairway drivers a bit. I tried like Steven Dodge had said about microwaving the discs on high for a minute, and voilah! The wing warp was gone! I just used my hand to bend the wing up a bit right after taking it out of the microwave before setting it on the counter top to cool.

At first I was a little skeptical that it would work, but after it worked successfully on some that were freshly warped, I tried it on an Ascent that has had a severe wing warp for about six months, and it returned to its original form as well! Yet another reason that Vibram is the premier disc manufacturer on the market!

The good ole microwave trick works again. Well said my friend, well said.

^The microwave trick is awesome. The discs can also "heal" themselves sometimes too. I've had a medium Ibex get deformed two different ways from tree hits on separate occassions(flight plate caved in, bent wing). The first time, when it caved in, I left it sitting on the counter to do the microwave trick. However, when I remembered to do it a few hours later, the disc was fixed. The second time, I figured I would leave it out over night instead of microwaving it. Sure enough, it was good as new the next morning.

Hey everyone, I recorded a video of me throwing some drives with my Vibrams and posted it in the Technique Critique forum. I figured I'd post it here as well.
