Idk if it was something in shipping or just a couple random bad discs. They in no way affect how I feel about vibram. Love the lace and sole.
Oh no worries man! Yeah that must be like Mamba flippy or something which in that case I am not surprised it's legendary for thumbers!

I'm back looking for a little more advice on my Obex. I went out yesterday and played another round with it. This time, there was snow on the ground and it was about 19F outside. All of my discs were noticeably stiffer than usual, including the x-link. When throwing it yesterday, I actually had some success and found it to be more stable than the previous outing.

Are x-link firm discs more consistent (or stable) than regular medium discs?

I thought that my F Obex were more overstable than my M's...

So I'm glad there's a more traditional style Vibram putter for those who want it, but what attracts me to the other Vibram putters is the fact that they aren't traditional.
You are making me feel good about buying a Sole

I bought one that caught my eye for its beauty, when what I was shopping for was a Summit.

Threw it one round and liked it quite a lot tho. Still gonna grab me a Summit, probably at the Birdie Bash.

I completely agree with you on this. I've met Dana briefly at worlds this past year and I see Mitch all the time here as we are both members of the same local club. Really solid people on team Vibram. I really do hope that Dana or Mitch can pull a big surprise this year and win worlds.

Common thought used to be that Mediums were the most stable but as Dana pointed out, that might be changing. I am still a fan of Medium in any weather.

For me it really depends on the disc. I have 4 Summits in my bag. 3 are Firms (175, 175, & 173 g) and 1 is Medium (175 g). The Medium and one of the Firm 175s are pretty stable for Summits. I drive with these. The other 175 Firm is really understable. The 173 Firm is right in between the 175ers. So it's kind of interesting. I like the variance though because I use each disc for different shots. It's just like using a worn in disc compared to a new disc. So I guess my point is I wouldn't necessarily say Medium or Firm are more stable. It just depends.

Also I didn't notice it until after throwing it a few times, but it seems to have an imperfection. At first I thought it must have come from me hitting something...tree, rock, etc. But after examining it I don't see any puncture wound...just looks like a bubble in rubber. Has anyone else received a disc like this?



Please email me these pictures. This is a defect. steven.dodge@vibramusa.com

Will we get our understable Lace? Or perhaps it will be a Mobex or Ubex? I'm curious if anyone has any new information that they may have heard over the last week or two.
Insert cricket noises here.

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.
As a player with some power ... Are you talking arm speed, or decision making! :-)

We've just completed the redo on some of our player pages. Here is Dana's new layout: http://www.vibramdiscgolf.com/dana-vicich.html
