The notch/arch at what the trek/ascent wanted to be. They are 2 ****ing awesome molds.

The Arch is a great disc. A lot like a Teebird.

Statements like that get me excited.

It's the end of April. Where are our new Vibrams?!

Trak is a great disc, they just needed a right away flippy complement. I like the Ascent but they tinkered with the mold too much.

I don't see that either one will be missed if their new mids are improvements. I tried both, wanted to like both during my Vibram phase, and couldn't click with either. Hopefully the Notch and Arch do better.

Hopefully a longer one.

Too bad the stars didn't align for these to have been out for the 2015 Birdie Bash. I definitely would have played, but it wasn't all that appealing with putters, speed 5 and speed 13 discs.

Trak was my go-to disc. I ordered a soft today from gottagogottathrow. Holds any line I use it for... forehand, backhand, and overhand.

I got a Trak in the pile that goes straight forever. I was testing it one day and was very impressed. I can't use it around leaves due to the color, but that thing will flat out fly.
