This is what I have come to expect from Vibram. I am moving to lower weights thanks to Vibram doing this and I am loving the results so far.

Are you speaking specifically towards the lace? I have a 158 M ascent that is very flippy especially compared to my 171-174 ascents, but have yet to try the lace.

I was speaking towards the Lace, yes. I have not thrown any of Vibram's other molds in the uber light weights yet. I typically like to have a very light version of my main distance driver for those days when it is completely calm or there is a subtle tailwind to completely rip the mess out of the disc.

I have a 153M Ibex for upshots and a 155M Summit for the same purpose. Both have very similar flight paths to heavier discs of the same mold. Some of the courses I play have extremely steep slopes.


Of course I'm not strong arming them like would be expected from a tee shot. I'm looking forward to trying out a lightweight Lace though.

I cannot remember exactly when Vibram started to make lightweight discs but I have a sneaking suspicion that consistency in this regard was not a major concern until they started making the 150 class stuff. I would guess that by chance the putter stayed consistent while the Ascent did not for some reason. This is purely a guess.

What could a rubber-arm who maxes out at 300 expect from a lightweight 15x Lace?

I've heard they are not super over-stable meathooks.

Just curious ....

I would think you might see a little distance gain, but I don't think you could get it up to speed at 300ft of power. Even at 15xg, its still a big D driver.

Is the lace faster than a destroyer?

IMO same speed/power range but less pronounced fade and earlier turn
