if you're looking to pick up some vibrams to test justin's deal at community discs is a good deal. placed 2 orders for some firm plastic from him and it showed up quick.

I guessed massively overstable fairway driver. It looks sort of like a blunt Ascent, it's the most glaring hole in the Vibram lineup, and as someone pointed out on Facebook, R420 probably stands for turn=4 and fade=20.

Doesnt look very tall and seems a lot like the lace from the top view but the shadow suggests higher PLH and less concave of a wing which otherwise would hide a shadow pretty well... OS Lace perhaps?! True head-wind and power player disc? Dont see a need to add more molds to the other lines as putters/mids and even fairways have stability ranges where the vibram drivers do not and with the 1st tester laces being "flippy" I doubt much research would need to be done to get an understable lace being it was when it came out anyways... soooo OS Lace it is!

This HAS to be a MO Fairway. When I hold the profiles of the Lace, Obex, and Ascent up to the picture it has a profile looks closest to the Ascent. Plus, the Lace just came out so what is the point of throwing out another high speed driver when there are other more glaring needs in the line-up? I think the most requested disc on the DGCourse Review is for a very overstable control driver like a Firebird/Predator.

i didn't see a profile pic either, if there was a side shot listed that would makes things way too easy.
