Anyone know who this guy is talking to? I'm assuming he's either high and has no idea what is going on or he is calling out the troll who tried to tell the OP he was wrong for calling Vibram discs plastic.

Tmart... they are RUBBER.. no plastic. If you have a beef, call your state PDGA representative and pitch a fit with him/her.

X-Link discs are compression molded rubber with some cross-linkable thermoplastics. That is actually where the name X-Link comes from - cross link. This is a chemistry word that gives a material strength. The X-Link Firm discs have a higher percentage of cross-linkable thermoplastics (which is perhaps why the X-Link Firm drivers are not quite as durable).

Now, if you would like to get your hands on one of these prototype puppies, and you are in the market for a practice basket, DGA and Vibram and partnering to offer a Mach Lite / Proto Driver pack.

These packs are only available at PlayersCup.org.

Not really because it is still incorrect to call Vibram's discs plastic. I've never heard anyone say the ocean is made of salt or heard anyone say "I'm thirsty for some Yellow #5" when they want a Mountain Dew. Most tap water has trace levels of arsenic, yet you don't drink or take a shower in arsenic...

Jrawk.... they are thermoplastic elastomers like I said. If you have a beef feel free to cry in your pillow.
