astro_man14 already informed everyone that they are made out of rubber not plastic but thanks for the further clarification.

In case anyone missed any of the last 14 posts, the Vibram discs, much like everything Vibram makes, are made of rubber. Note, another way of wording this would be to say that they are not plastic. You could take it a step further and put both sentences together, such as, "Vibram's X-Link isn't really a plastic at all (use sarcastic tone here to imply the listener is a doofus), it is a rubber based material that is truly revolutionary to the sport of disc golf."

Afterwards, you should then take any and all discs within arms length and huck them into the nearest brick wall. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Then, with all of the might that God and evolution impaled you with, yell at the top of your lungs, THEY ARE RUBBER, LIKE THE VIBRAM SOLES ON YOUR SHOES! CAN YOU IMAGINE TRYING TO WALK WITH PLASTIC SOLES? NO GRIP, NO DURABILITY! COME ON, HAS ANYONE BEEN READING STEVE DODGE'S 420 POSTS OVER THE PAST 8 MONTHS?!?!?!?!?!

Note: A couple of other emoticons could have fit well here, but DGCR limits me to five. I had to take the emoticon out of the quote above just to get the head banger.

Default Plastic?

Wow, I don't think I can post without it being quoted. So what you are saying is Vibram discs are rubber?

I was throwing one with a buddy the other day to warm up. They are different for sure. Its like they're made of rubber. The plastic is that soft.

I got mad at my VP the other day and threw it hard straight down into the ground.

It bounced like a basketball.

So I did it again.

Kids, dont try this at home with your new Nuke.
