Coincidentally, it was named that way because it was the 420th project Vibram worked on. It had zero to do with the sticky icky.
0? Like the roach has 0 to do with it as well?

You can read into the name whatever you want. I couldn't care less. I don't buy and throw discs because the names aren't offensive. I throw them because they fly best for me. I also don't have a problem with the reputation disc golf has for being full of stoners.

I got into disc golf because it defied demographics. Everyone could enjoy it. Now we seem to have more NIMBYs trying to make disc golf into what they want instead of just enjoying their time outside vs the ones trying to keep courses out of their areas. It's maddening how important some people think they should be.

I always wanted a granite disc just to have. So I pulled the trigger on a few Lace's plus some V.P.'s just for the heck of it. Pretty sure they are going to disappear really quick from the major retailers.

What does this post have to do with anything? You said their name had 0 to do with weed culture. No one made statements whether or not weed culture was good or bad, just that there was no way Vibram didnt know what they were doing with that name. It is obvious that they took a calculated risk. You cant cede that point with out changing the topic into some rambling rant?

I'm saying I don't care.

No one mentioned weed culture? Really? This post kind of started the tangent. I guess they're talking about lollipops?

While I appreciate your need to be right, I'm not just talking to you.

I also saw the one and only fully yellow Vibram disc. It was a Ridge or VP, not sure which. I know some the Trak 'Bumble Boots' come close, but this was made special by a chemist. It was kinda fun to watch all the collectors have big oogly-eyes at it.


Was the disc actually Vibram Yellow, or just some shade of yellow?

Saying things like "I know you need to be right", which means yea you are probably right but I don't want to admit it and multiple posts on how much you really don't care (which means you really really do care) don't add much to your credibility.
