I have seen flight flight charts that compare the Lace to a Boss and they fly nothing alike. The Lace is way too flippy for me.

What is the method uses for making Vibram discs more tacky? For some reason I remember someone saying lemon or lime juice, but I may be crazy.

As for the next disc. I'm not quite sure honestly. They (Steve/Vibram) ask for ideas and input, I believe the Sole was born at the request of the team?

As a player with some power, I look forward to the over stable version of the Lace and hope to see that type of disc next.
I really couldn't agree more! Overstable discs are the best discs because they are predictable. I love my Firebirds and my Ape so I am hoping for an overstable Lace and a Firebird/Pred type of disc. An overstable Obex like a Drone/Gator would be legendary too.

Seriously, a dirty Vibram is the grippiest disc you will ever hold.

A rubber Gator type disc (Mobex!) and a rubber Firebird type disc would just be absolutely wonderful.

Give 'em a nice Palmolive bath. They go from grippy to griptastic.

how long will they be good for after that? didn't know how much oil from your hands and whatnot would alter the grip over time.

I would just hit it with the rinse and repeat once you feel the need to do so.

The more you wash them, the longer each wash works.
