No, they aren't stable at all. Even the new "more stable" runs. If the UnLace doesn't turn a little bit for you then you need to work on getting your speed up.

By Vibram's own flight chart, the only disc in their lineup that has a lower recommended flight speed than the Unlace's 44 mph is their understable putter the Summit, at 40.

I don't think it's a case of getting it up to speed, unless they've modified the mold.

Then what do you recommend?

If an UnLace is not turning and doing its suggested flight path then the issue is usually the thrower.

Sorry, if you put the Unlace on an anhyzer release angle it will (well, shouldn't) fight back. Just not going to happen.

I know my Unlace was just what you'd expect - anhyzer release = roller.

I was just saying it as much a finesse disc as you'll find for its speed, so getting up to speed shouldn't be an issue.

Interesting discussion on the unLace... my guess is that it has to do with form issues and/or course conditions, i.e. tailwinds.

I've thrown understable discs on an anny and had them fade down, if they're thrown slightly nose up. The precession that takes place lifts the disc rather than turning it, so the disc elevates into the stratosphere and fades to the left ever so slightly rather than turning to the right. It's kind of touchy doing this, but it's possible with many of Vibram's molds. I've accomplished this with the Ibex.

Glad i read this post, was thinking about doing a BB this summer since I have never thrown Vibram. But I only throw 9 speed or slower discs and feel that i wont fair well no being able to pick a fairway driver, guess i might change my mind and not do it after all.

Unless you have small hands, there's no reason you can't shape lines with an UnLace just as easily as with a sidewinder or something similar.
Also, the birdie bash courses are usually short enough for putter plus ibex or over.

unLace is pretty workable for newer players at 44 mph versus the fairway drivers which are at 50 mph and 56 mph. The unLace doesn't take much to get it up to speed, 14 6 -3 1 according to Infinitediscs. Lots of glide, very flippy, but solid once you learn to control it.

Haven't thrown it much on a fan-grip, but my guess is that it works well on shorter mid-range type holes, where there's line-shaping possibilities and/or a low canopy, because it skips.

You should give it a shot with a mid/mid or mid/putter. In regular rounds, I use my Ibex on anything 320' or less. It is a fun event.

It's a great tournament for newer players, because it's just meant to be fun! Everyone who registers gets a players pack, so no one leaves empty-handed.
