Sounds like flukes to me. I have a very beat M Ibex (used for 3-4 years) and it is the straightest flier I have. Never seen a Ibex flip unless thrown with very bad form or in a strong L-R wind.

As for the Lace, it is extremely sensitive to wind so I only use it in a tailwind otherwise I switch to the O-Lace or Four20.. I generally use the Lace only on wide-open holes because of the amount of HS turn it has....needs some room to fade back left.

I have a lighter Ibex that's very flippy... very beat-in. It's an older run, but my newer runs handle every bit of power I can put on them. My friend Jake just won an Ibex at the VBB, and he's a power thrower! He can throw that Ibex on an anny, and it'll fly 300' easy. Flies for days on an anny...

This has to be a fluke disc because no way people would like it if it were flippier than a beat up Mamba lol. Then again I'm throwing it 120 ft. farther and my Mamba went in a lake so I can't compare those anymore.
When I started I'd flip the Lace very easy... also, I'd throw the Ibex into hazards because I'd anhyzer it so much. Keep working on your form. It'll come with time. Think about your scores, not your distance.

I've found the Ibex pretty similar to the Buzzz - very good all purpose mid.

Yea I'm gonna keep throwing them and see how things go I was literally throwing a Katana for every shot over 200 up until like a month ago. Maybe I just need to get used to throwing a mid range disc.

Ibex is good when thrown backhand. It is very forgiving, in that it'll go on the line that you put it in, whether it be a hyzer-angle or anhyzer-angle... great disc backhand!

Witnessed someone's first ace ever the other day at the Vibram Birdie Bash I was TDing. Over 250' hole slightly downhill, perfectly straight-line to the basket with a little fade. Hit chains, dead center... stuck there for one second perfectly parallel to the ground, and then dropped into the basket. Highlight of the summer so far, disc golf-wise... Vibram hits chains and sticks, so that's a testament to Vibram Disc Golf.

Does/would an Ibex beat into something similar to a Comet? I see them both on inbounds and I think it looks possible, but I'd like to know first hand from guys that bag them. I want something for hyzer-flip into turnovers like driving my Summit but longer. Is that a realistic expectation for a lightly seasoned Ibex or is more of a line holder?

I haven't spent enough time to tell you how they'll season, but they're more line holder than midrange Summit.
