My 155 Ridge and 170 fly nearly identical, ones firm and ones med with only a big difference in extreme temps.

It's not that VPs don't skip, it's that they push the earth down with them and the earth obeys.

I have a question though, where the Ibex and Vibram stamps are, there are lumps right underneath the disc on the other side. I attached a pic, but I was just curious..are they all like this or did I get a weird one?

Any help would be appreciated!
This bump underneath the label is called the "label well". It is necessary so the rubber of the label has enough material to chemically bond with. With the Sole, Ibex and Obex, the label well is wider than the wing and we needed to put a faux label well on the other side of the disc for balance.

I LOVE that Steve!

I don't throw my VP every round but I'd never leave the house without it!

Want to try a medium soon (I have a firm) but the wife said I have bought too many discs lately. One day though.
Vinnie Miller of Texas (http://www.vibramdiscgolf.com/vinnie-miller.html) came into Vibram the same way. We had sponsored the Texas Women's Challenge a few year's back. Vinnie was (and probably still is) the TD and I gave him a Ridge to try out. A few months later his KC Aviar cracked and he was left with the Ridge. The rest, as Chuck Norris would say, is history.

Steve, I hope I am not bugging you too much by asking this but, can you give us an estimate on a release date for the next new mold? (I'm hoping for a Mofwy)

Not bugging me one bit, but not only will I not give a release date, I also won't say what it is.

I think the beefy one should be called a Moobex.

Bovine humor, folks.

I'll be here all week.
