I did my own test and the conclusion was That if I grip the disc tightly they all have the same grip.

Hahaha, very true.

I also would think this test could be interesting if you did an array of analysis on different weights (maybe that would be less conclusive, but still a good gauge to try different amounts), temperature changes (hot vs cold), humidity (dry, damp, and coated, and submerged).

If we can find a place to do a CTP contest, we'll also do one with each of the three discs with the prizes being a couple of VPs, Ridges and Summits.

And lastly, we'll be doing a drawing and two people at the demo will get to become Vibram testers.

(Note: We're doing the same thing at Phenix Disc Sports at 10 AM on Saturday.)
you doing any of these in MA?

That's a good idea. I'll put one together in the next month or so.

Hey, dont stop there Steve, call the padrones in Albizzate and tell them you need a west coast tour.
Maybe two weeks, fly to Seattle, throw some Ridges into a wall, then head south, bashing and abusing discs as you go, fly back out of San Diego after showing how Summits melt wayyyyy slower on a hot sidewalk than Star Avairs do.

Lightbulb Dog Tested?

I know it's not disc golf related, but another visual durability test could be letting a dog play catch with each premium plastic putter. It'd be interested to see how vibrams hold up against bite marks.

Only seen dogs get on the dx version and their slobber eats away at plastic and they bit off small chunks.
