Eh what can I say? Had to give it a shot too! It would be so legendary getting that Vibram tester spot! Plus I can't wait to get some more rubber in my bag. It's just about completely rubberized!

If you're in the Twin Cities you don't really need to be a tester to throw any of the new molds that come out. There's like 4/5 testers.

^ Then they need one in California. Something about being at sea level....going to need feedback from all altitudes, climates, and topography.

I think Vibram could use a tester in western SoDak. There isn't one here yet that I know of (*raises hand* - Pick me!).

Yes, I would like to enter, but I am not getting Facebook. I would waste too much time on FB rather than Disc Golfing. Ha!

4-5 testers is not a lot...? I would guess at least 2-3 of them all know each other fairly closely and I have never run into anyone "testing" vibrams out on our courses so have started buying them myself to test. We have a ton of courses here you know this, as well as players and to think 4-5 people testing a disc is a good sample size for our area seems a bit ridiculous. I would think being one of the most versitile areas to play from open, wooded, hot, cold, hilly, flat we have it covered in MN so it would make sense to have lots of testers where conditions arise fully testing the mold.

Not all of them know each other. It's not too hard to find them with the magical wasteland called Facebooks. We have a Twin Cities Disc Golf group that they're all a part of. And maybe you should play more east(better) side courses.

lol...You made my point. We DO play all the "better" courses from oakwood, Lakewood, the Valley, Kaposia as well as all the seasonal greats and St. Cloud to Maiden Shade but still don't see many vibram discs. I am not out seeking these testers so I can try their discs, its a matter of how many fish are in the sea and exposure of a brand which also is a key job of a tester I would think.. Your average player is not going to go out of their way to find a tester, contact them, get in the group and hope to get to try the disc if they tag along?! come on mannnnnnn.

I do know one guy but just because you know a tester doesn't mean you actually have the tester discs as your own. Big difference! It would just be cool to actually be apart of the testing process.
