What happens when you read this thread

YES! After several days of dedication, I have finished reading this thread from Post #1 to now.

What happens when you do that? You realize you really like the 2 Vibram discs you're using - Medium Ridge and Medium Lace.
So, you pull out your old stash of Summits and VPs and throw them in a couple of rounds and realize how awesome these 2 molds actually are.
Then, you start buying multiple copies of every other Vibram mold you don't have - Ascent, Trak, Ibex, Obex - so you can try them out, too.
They should be arriving in the next day or 2.
I've been checking the tracking updates every few hours like a kid watching for Santa!

I'm waiting breathlessly for the LaceOS to become available ... and the name should be ... Cleat.

Also, really looking forward to the MObex and the improved Firebird/Predator mold.

The other thing I want is a FiveFingers model designed specifically for disc golf with more protection for the foot and ankle and excellent traction for wet/dry/sandy tee pads.

Vibram rocks!!!!!!!!!

Any reviews for the sole as a main putter.

I'll give mine a week and let you know, bought two thinking I wanted a traditional putter after a bad putting spell and just went with the VP instead because of impatience.

I bought a pink and purple Ascent last time, figuring it would stand out up here, where everything is green alla time.

Thing looks like a vagina, but it gets lost just as fast as any other color.

Bottom line is, quit pulling chokers before you drive, and pay attention to where the disc goes.

I have a vibram story. My firm ascent went out onto a busy road during rush hour and got run over at least a dozen times. I wiped the tires tracks off and it looks unscathed, but it went from nice eagle-ish flight to beat leopard with a bit more hss. Not really a bad thing. I still throw it all the time. It is a pretty good roller now. It is a good enough roller, that I really want to beat the snot out of a firm trak and see if that could replace my go-to polaris ls as my roller.

I cant throw my lace that great back hand, but I can bomb it on low hard rhfh throws. I throw it with a bit of hyzer, it flips up and just keeps going.

That is some pretty serious dedication. I am always glad to hear of another person who loves Vibram. There is much to be proud about in regards to what Vibram is doing and it doesn't stop with their discs. We may not have a full line out by the end of the year but rest assured Vibram is going to make sure every disc they release is exactly what they want it to be.

I've recently been recording some footage of myself discing with my Vibrams and have finally decided what I was gonna do with it. I'm gonna be posting a series of videos, titled Discs In Flight, featuring all of the different Vibram molds. While rather inexperienced, and not all that good, I figured this would be a good way for the average casual/recreational discer (a.k.a the noodle arms and those with iffy form) to see how Vibram discs would fly for them. I'm also going to be posting other disc golf/Vibram related videos on my channel.

Here's the channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/Bmikel216?feature=mhee

And here's some specific videos:
Discs in Flight: Vibram VP-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHQzbY0FPEo
Discs in Flight: Vibram Ascent-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2EuU...ature=youtu.be

There is also a video of my playing a full round at my local course uploading right now. Next up in the Discs in Flight series, Ibex/Obex and the Lace. I also have an In The Bag recorded and hopefully should be getting that up later tonight.

Anyways, I figured I would share this here and get some feedback and comments from all of you. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Good stuff Bro. Keep it up and that form will improve in no time.
