Default missing discs in lineup

I was wondering if anyone here on dgcoursereview might have any insight to new discs with vibram. I really need an understable mid range and an understable fairway driver.


Any help would be great.

Just curious as to if it has to be vibram. I see in your signature that you throw a Kite by innova. That is a pretty darn under stable mid. For a fairway driver, I would say try a leopard in star, champ, or even dx. It is a great fairway driver that can really grow with you. I have 3. A glow champ, a star, and my favorite a Barry Schultz 2x champ that is in that perfect spot. The only thing that sucks about this one is I will never find another one like it.

Another great mid option is the champ panther. Kind of a tweener disc. It is a 5 4 -2 1. One speed lower than a leopard, but otherwise a very similar flight path. I bag one to compliment my roc3.

I know none of this is vibram, but I hope it helps a bit. Good luck and happy throwing.

I thought I read a while back that the Trak was supposed to be inspired by the Leopard.

Ibex looks like it could do the right lines if you have the skill set.

ah well this is going to be fun. i decided to switch all my discs around and play with a new set. i decided originally to go to discraft and i did. i actually played real well with them. I was just missing a little bit of certain shots. i also have a small issue that i sweat a lot with my palms and lose grip of plastic which is why i went to vibram. vibram is grippy even with a small amount of sweat or persparation on your hand.

currently in my bag is

ridge
obex
trek
olace
lace
unlace
solace

i will be getting an ibex, ascent, sole and summit. I like the way vibram is flying and has many options.

the 2 slots that i posted are the only missing links that will not take me 3-4 months of beating in a disc to get it to do what i want. i am looking for used ones that might already have that characteristic but finding a used vibram is hard.

The Ibex is a wonderful balance of speed, glide, and neutrality, but its speed does tend to limit its shorter distance anhyzers.

Nothing. Trak is straight, Ibex is straight. And they take forever to beat in (naturally)

i had a buddy telling me he had discs that he did not hit trees with but he left in his car and they got really hot. then they cooled down over the winter. he went out and threw them and they were more flippy. could heating a vibram disc change its flight pattern and cooling them over time

Pretty sure Steve Dodge himself has said something along the lines of microwaving Vibram discs to regain stability or change shape etc in the official Vibram thread.

The easiest way to get different flying vibrams is to go with light vs heavy discs and firm (beat in) vs fresh soft/medium. Firms will break in much more like a traditional plastic disc and similar to a higher end baseline plastic vs premium champion style.
