If there is a tie at the end of the round then the metal hits will determine the winner so there's less chance of a need for a play-off.

He will have XL-Medium and maybe some firms. Don't get all crazy thinking he's been hanging onto Softs since last fall.

Go and have a good time. Yes, $25 for $32 worth of discs is a great deal.
Then I have a couple of additional questions. Thanks for answering the first one.

1) Metal hits. Is this off of ace runs, birdie runs (or missed putts that would have been for birdies), and or a combination of the both?

2) I have an Obex tester already, but is that included in the box? What type of sampling and or colors did you see? I know that Vibram does not have a huge line-up yet, and above you mentioned that nothing uber-exciting is probably left, but I have to imagine it still has to be a good sampling.

3) What type of draw did you see? Here he is doing it at a park that has a considerable Rec presence, and he is doing it late afternoon on a Friday, so I am guessing it is going to be packed to begin with.
