Thoughts on the O-Lace?

Now that they've been out for a few months, what are you guys' feelings on the Olace? Considering getting one to try out, but I'm curious about a couple of things: 1) Just how stable is it to start out? 2) How well does it beat in? My Lace started out fairly stable and beat in very quickly into super flippy goodness and has stayed there.

I'm loving mine but I'm not crushing it yet, was able to get my laces to 400 after breaking in and can only get the olaces a little over 350 on an anny more if the wind holds it over. Great for wind so far, let a big arm at the course chuck it for distance and he loved it, said it was the first vibram disc he liked, threw it close to 500 ft on our longest hole and over shot the last hole on our course over 100ft(370 ft hole I think its less but that's what's posted).

As for the durability I've been trying to destroy a firm in the woods and its just getting easier for me to throw backhand, nowhere near flipping yet.

my buddy throws them and he swears by them. he has almost all vibram except for putters. He can throw the o-laces about 330 feet into headwinds.

Did not like it at first. Was too overstable for my power level at first. Was not sure if it would make the bag.

However, now that it is broken in, I am liking it a lot more and it has made the bag. Time to start getting back-ups.

I'd love to try one, but no one here stocks Vibram for me to feel it. What does the hand feel like? Are we talking like Ape OS or just slightly like an Avenger?

How far do you throw, and what would you compare the OL to?

I've field tossed a firm one a bit, it might be a mid 160s at that. It struck me as a beefy Destroyer type of general flight, I was expecting more dump fade. I max out around 350 probably. Really small sample size of experience though.

I too, feel it is like a beefy fresh Destroyer. After two months of hard play, and lots of overhands (it's my main Thumber/Tommy disc) I just yesterday saw my first bit of turn with it on a wide-open rip. Its durable, it's controllably overstable, and it has Lace glide. I recommend it.
