Vibram Is Done
 
1 Attachment(s)
Just got a dealer letter stating that Vibram is done in disc golf. Sad to see a unique niche market go away. I haven't carried them in a couple years because they didn't sell here, but I hate to see disc golf companies go. Well, except for Salient LOL

I don't mind the Lace, but I can't say I'll deeply miss Vibram.

Wow, that sucks. Not surprising for the brand, but they had a unique take on discs that will likely not be replicated. Sad to see it all come to an end.

Very underappreciated brand, IMO. I'm sorry to see them go. When they gave up the Vibram Open, I figured they were going to cut back to bare bones, but I didn't think they would shut down completely.

Well, I guess I'll have to buy a complete backup set for my tournament rain bag.

An unfortunate turn of events, but almost inevitable once Steve Dodge left the company. Disc golf is still at a point where all our businesses need to be run by disc golfers to maintain the enthusiasm and momentum needed to survive. If there's no passion for the game, then as soon as the bottom line is threatened, the plug gets pulled.

They had come okay discs. The Lace was my second longest BH disc.

Bummer, but I guess without Steve Dodge they lost direction?

way too early for april fools.

maybe gggt will pick 'em up like they did lightning, but the rubber process is probably more complex.

Just throw your regular discs in the rain man. It works. Just fine.

Of course, if your regular bag is all Champ or contains ANY MVP/Axiom, forget the above.
