It's not my first rodeo. Nothing works like Vibram discs in the rain. I don't even bother to dry my hands or the discs when I throw them. I will dip them in water before the throw if they have dirt/mud on them though.

I was really excited about Vibram, but then they named a disc connecting disc golf to something that isn’t even allowed for discussion on these forums. That ended my interest. It’s been a few years since then, so I’m not sure of the impact of that disc. I’m simply a survey of one.

I was into Vibram for a while. At one point carried like 5 or 6 sometimes. But eventually they all came out. I still putt with Soles, and even though I have 3 or 4 that I would bag, this still kind of makes me wanna find a new putter...

On a happy note, this probably makes my Vibram collection worth more, right? A little?
20 yrs from now they'll b rare. I have a few unthrown 1st run glows that already kinda are rare.

Bruh, how do you even frolf if weed references offend you so hard? That disc had 0 part in this.

"Let's grow the sport!"

An established company comes forward and offers a full lineup of unique, outta the norm discs, sponsors players and tournaments. Definitely helps grow the sport.

"Good riddance. Glad they're gone because... weed, man."

For anyone wondering what the posters are referring to, Vibram has a disc called the Four20, which has connotations associated with smoking marijuana. I had to look up the full list of Vibram discs to learn of this disc myself, since I have never seen it at any of the established retailers. It does seem a silly name to me, but I cannot say that I would turn away from the company completely for this.

Its name was changed (pretty sure it is now the SoLace) because of the insane amounts of garbage that followed after they unveiled the name.

Coincidentally, it was named that way because it was the 420th project Vibram worked on. It had zero to do with the sticky icky.
