Default Vibram OBEX/Arch

Anyone using the OBEX and or Arch? Looking to possibly replace a lost Rival and Roc3. Have been attempting to expand beyond innova and discraft to try different brands.

I have an obex, don't use it very much. Performed like a roc3 for me, slightly overstable but not at all a meat hook. A predictable soft fade. If you need one I have a firm 173 lying around somewhere.

The Obex I threw was a fair amount beefier than any Roc3 I've thrown. Even though it's not beaded, I would probably look at the Ibex to replace a Roc3. Great disc too.

I kind of view the Obex as a rubber rancho Roc and the Ibex as a Shark.

My obex flew like a verdict, then my Ibex was more of a truth.

My Obex is great, it's one of my most-used discs. For me it's somewhat overstable, yet doesn't have a really violent fade; it complements the Ibex really well. It's very useful for overhead shots and forehand approaches, and what I like best about it is how easy it is to power down without losing predictability.

Oh, and I have an Arch too, but I don't use it as much as the Valley.

Arch is kinda like a banshee, though if you throw it hard enough it wont be as OS.

Obex/Ibex combo and you should have all the shots needed for mid slots covered. I dropped everything i was carrying after picking up an ibex and obex, cuz i found i could do a lot with just those two. (still have an US putter for upshots that need to stay on an anny though)

X-link Med is good stuff to hit and stick in the summer (in the winter i will be getting the Soft Blend) Firm is good for driving. (in my opinion, your's may differ)

I have an obex and ibex. Stay away from ibex unless you have the power of a 5 year old girl with MS. The obex is a little bit more stable than the roc3 then again it's hard to tell with all innova discs having different stabilities from color

Ibex was more understable than I expected. Hopeless into any sort of wind. The Obex has been great. Mostly a straight flier with a moderate late fade. The only midrange I carry.

Arch is the Valleys somewhat more stable brother. Can handle some headwind, which is where the Valley has trouble. They make a good combo.
