Surprised so many people are down on Vibram in this thread. My only beef with them is that they need more discs. I love the feel and the flight from their discs.


Based on my personal bag:
1. Vibram (the entire lineup minus the Sole and unLace are in my bag now)
2. Lat 64 (Pure, River, Fuse, Pain, Saint, Flow, Trident, plenty of great stuff)
3. Innova (Leopard, Teebird, Eagle, Wraith, Tern, Aviar) <- we all know Innova is a mixed bag. Most of the greatest discs ever and a lot of turds
4. Millennium (I know Innova makes them, but I think it's an underrated lineup... love the Orion LS so much)
5. Discraft (not a huge Discraft thrower, but the Buzzz and Comet are outstanding discs)


I have other brands but I don't throw them regularly. Only ones I thought were truly crap were Quest and Discwing.

Default Innova all day

No one else has the entire lineup covered from beginner friendly DX plastic that turns easy to over molds and champ plastic. I don't like that they sandbag their mid lineup with special runs and create artificial demand to manipulate profit. But whatever, seems like people are lining up and begging them to make them anyway soooo. Must be good discs.
Thrown almost all of their distance molds and the only turd was the groove and that was probably my inability to throw it back then.
That said, I will easily try Vibram, MVP, Legacy Prodigy and disc craft soon. Mostly all the same stuff except for MVP over molds and Vibram.

Well, you know what they say about opinions and *******s.

Everyone said get a Teebird - It was super, super overstable. It's a champ and a year later with a lot of play it's still almost just as overstable.

Everyone said get a Roc - I bought a DX Roc and hated the plastic. Still used it to give it a try and it beat into a perfect straight flyer with a little fade at the end. DX plastic feels fantastic when it's beat in. I loved it. For about a month and then it started to turn over easily. A friend explained DX doesn't last long. I needed to buy another one and rotate them. No thank you.

Everyone said get a Destroyer - Granted I don't have the arm for that high a speed of disc so I tried a friends first. He had a 150 Blizzard Destroyer. I threw it and few times and got some good results. Nice, I thought so I bought one in the same weight and plastic. Most overstable meathook disc I've every thrown. (if you don't count the Prometheus)

There's only so many times a consumer will try a company and get bad to less than ideal results and keep coming back for more.

I did use a Blizzard Boss for a while that was ok but had other discs that worked better for me. And I do carry a 150 Star Mamba for giant turnovers that I like although my F7 has been taking shots from it lately.

Then they came out with the Atlas and the colors and compass points seemed gimmicky to me. Then they came out with the Nova which was even worse.

Hey, I'm a consumer. That's been my experience. That's my opinion.

1. Salient
100% agree. And it has nothing to do with their actual products as I've never touched or seen (in person) anything made by Salient.

Thank you.

Anyone have a linky to this "horrible customer service" from Salient. This is the first I've heard of it and I'm curious.
