It has to do with the amount of rubber versus the amount of plastic in the mix. Rubber is much more durable, and less likely to beat in over time.
Soft is the purest rubber in the XLink lineup, Firm has the most plastic.

Any idea of where the rubbers fall in stability compared to the glow and the granite?

You can get into very minute variations in stability but both Granite and XL-Glow are XL-Medium compounds.

Haven't used the granite, but I had a glow and medium Arch, same weight, and there was no real difference between them. The glow quality was amazing-WAY better than the Innova stuff.

I was asking because I have a granite that is much more os than the glow I have. Both are about 169-170 and are pop top.

The glow will flex and come bak when released flat. It will also pop up turn a bit and then fade back when released on hyzer.

The Granite will not flex at all, just hold the hyzer line or stay a bit straight then hyzer out.

GLOWS in stock at vibram.us

Glows are back in stock at the factory store featuring just about all current molds it looks. Looks like the Float stock might be up too. Buy 3 discs and get 2 common minis. (Option for foot keychain instead of minis, but no one who reads this would take that option. Coasters are sadly not an option.)

Lots of love here for Vibram's high-quality products!

QUESTION TO THOSE MOST WHO ARE HIGHLY EXPERIENCED WITH VIBRAM'S PRODUCT LINE:

If you had to pick one Vibram disc that solidly outperforms all other discs on the market in the role for which they were designed (e.g. understable high-speed driver), which one would it be, and why?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I would probably vote for the Summit as an understable, low profile putter. It has a slow right to left flight without being overly flippy.

I meant to say left to right (RHBH).

I'm sure this is cheating but the answer to what solidly outperforms all other discs is the X-Link compound. As for a disc I believe the unLace would be the most extreme in what it does. It is hard to find a max distance disc that understable. There are lots of discs like the Obex but that is my favorite. It is overstable enough to not turn over unless you mean to do it and you don't have to have a monster arm to throw it straight.

There are 100's of discs on the market. It is hard to imagine any manufacturer is making any disc that outperforms all the competition on the market.
