The only trouble I have ever had is with a red one. It was close to dusk and the red basically turned to black in the low light and was impossible to see hidden in the shadows. Beyond that the Vibram colors really standout despite not having a reflective sheen like Pro or Star plastic.

Have you been to PIAS in Oshkosh lately, they have straight up camouflage Vibrams. Dark green, Black and Brown all swirled nicely together.

So it sounds like each one flies differently, huh?

Hey, what's the selection like at the PIAS in Oshkosh? I have a brother who lives up there and I'm going this weekend, and wanna check it out. PM me about the variety and prices there so we don't have to carry it on in the thread.

I was also going to say something about this, sounds like a very inconsistent model.

OK so I went out and threw a whole round with a production Trak.. the one I got is very close to the proto-trek of the tee they seemed to land very close when I threw them the same way, a couple of times within about 5'. The production is everything that the Yellow ones weren't for me.. the yellow were pretty overstable, the production run will definitely be in my bag, pretty stable, not really one way or the other, has some ok glide with a slight fade at the end. I also played in the brief rainstorm last night, even when wet still stayed grippy. Over all I think it's a keeper.

Yeah I saw those. They all looked crazy hard to find to me. I picked up a couple ridges to try out and I think I am going to grab a trak next time I get paid.

My 165 star leopard continually outperformed this Trak i have. Both distance and line holding.

Edit: (in the practice field)

Took out the yellow First Run Traks for another round and they are holding steady with their overstableness. I may have to purchase a regular medium Trak or two and see if they are as stable/understable as my testers. If so, then between these yellow FR Traks, my medium Ascents, and the understable Traks, I have all my fairway shots covered.

I still wish they had a little more glide because one thing I am noticing is that when they are a little slick sometimes I have griplock issues when I try to compensate to snap the FR Traks hard. I know we are looking at a new mid and putter coming out soon, but if they can find some way to get some glide into their discs straight out of the box, we could use one neutral stability high speed and or distance driver.
