You should post them in the Vibram Porn thread I made a little while back!

I've been trying out the Ibex in cold, wet, nasty weather this last week, and X-Link has great grip in these conditions. I think they will become my default winter discs in the future.

I was shown yet again exactly why I love my Ibexes today. We had sustained 20-25mph winds here in the Black Hills today, and on numerous throws, I would throw the Ibexes with a substantial crosswind and watch it drop the wing just enough to hold dead straight (yeah, dead freaking straight in a 25mph crosswind) before holding the line into a stall for a drop directly down with no fade and minimal skip. Had this amazing shot occur on both a 270' throw and a 340' throw. Gotta say, the Ibex is the only disc I know of that will hold that true of a line in a crosswind.

I recently bought the ibex thinking it would be like a buzz. The thing flips on me way too easy, Definitely not like a buzz. Good for hyzer flipping tunnel shots but not what I wanted. How does the obex fly?

I have not had any issues with any of the ibexes I have thrown flipping over on me and I am throwing throwing them 350+' comsistently. They don't like OAT much so maybe you're torquing them a bit. In my experience, the ibex has an overall straighter flight than the buzzz does.

The obex flies kind of similar to a wasp. it has a touch of high speed turn with a nice, steady, reliable fade.

What weights would y'all recommend on an obex? Is it a good hyzer disc?

Never thrown a wasp but I'm interested in this class of discs.

I personally like my mids near max weight. I like using it for shots that go out straight and need a steady fade at the end of the flight. I have found that it fights winds very well, and it is good for hyzers. like claimed, it has good glide for an overstable mid range.
