Valley June 27th release

First news on the new fairways from Vibram. Valley: http://store.discbite.com/collection...3335357-valley

DiscBite Disc Golf: "DESCRIPTION

This is a PRE-ORDER with a release date of June 27th and is currently only available in Medium.

Vibram's second generation stable fairway driver, the Valley has a thinner flight plate, more contoured grip, and improved wing shape. It is based on a modification of the Lace and will hold a strong anny line through the end of its flight. Finesse players will love the way they can work this disc and make it perform."

Referencing the Lace in the description? Color me intrigued...

140-159g weights in medium so far... if it holds an anny, it should be good!

Sounds beginner-friendly, which is something needed in Vibram's fairway lineup. A light Trak is a solid choice but this sounds easier to handle out of the box.

TDed last year and just played one this year... the Valley will be well-received at the VBB next year, because I'm hearing comments like, "the Summit is a straight disc."

I was pushing the older players/less skilled players to get the unLace, and I think a lot of them like it so far for the easy-distance. The unLaces they are using are a lot more stable than the beat-in ones I use, but that translates to consistency for newer players.

I started throwing my soft Trak today, and it is very stable, almost overstable. Be interested to see how it seasons, seeing how it's a soft. The Valley should be a good antidote to the stability of the Trak, which I would describe as 'not too hot, not too cold.' For RHBH, a right-turning fairway will complement the unLace and Ibex, which both hold anny lines for long distances.

I got to throw my new valley today. I have a 175M valley.

First thoughts- it is not understable at all. It is stable. I threw on a a hyzer my first shot expecting to get it to flip up flat and go dead straight. It held the hyzer but went about 350 feet on a hyzer. I threw hole 12 at banklick with it several times.

The Valley will hold an anhyzer for about 300 feet and then start to fade. It is not a hyzer flip disc at all so far. Maybe when it get seasoned it will.

my flight rating are based on innovas flight guide. I throw max 420 feet with drivers. i would say a speed 9, glide of 5 maybe 6, 0 turn and 2 fade.

These are just based off of about 20 throws but i absolutely love this disc. I threw hole 6 at banklick twice with an anhyzer flex shot and it faded out perfectly to give me a 40 foot putt, which i drained it twice with my granite ridge.


All in all here are flight #'s. 9 5 0 2

The production run Valley's seem to be more overstable than the Trak. I'd give them flight ratings 8 4 0 1. I don't have the same power as you 250'-300'.

Well, it seems to have evolved the the US fairway it started out as.

This is interesting. What are the basic numbers for the Notch and Arch? Wasn't one super beefy and the other with a little turn but not terribly understable? Sounds like the works might get gummed up a little with these three...
