Therein lies the problem, I need the sweeping turns that understable discs offer. With a disc as stable as the ibex it doesn't exhibit any turn, granted I can get it to track to the right for a short time before fading out when thrown flat, but on anhyzyers it doesn't finish much more right from where it started. OAT helps but it's so much more risk-reward than clean turnovers. Flicking has helped fill this spot for now but this is what id like to see next along with the mobex.

This! Couldn't have been said better. I still love my obex but the ibex is right there with it.

Fun lil' story, playing with my dad n his buddies yesterday I smashed the obex into a tree pretty much point blank, it clapped rim to rim lmao. If it was plastic I woulda' got smacked by it. Now this obex was beat to hell already (logo knocked out by jesus thorn tree I'm guessing) and broken in, but it still flies the same. gotta love vibram durability!

Totally understand. I would love for them to extend the Summit's flight into a Ubex and, especially, a fairway driver. I love my Traks! But, everyone describes them as Leopard like, but they are more stable than that. I'd call them neutral, but not understable.

Summit flight in a mid/fairway would be a thing of beauty.

I heartily agree with you sir! Don't worry, I am sure Vibram will eventually make a Summit mid and Summit FWY.

Love my Ibex, but I give a tip of the hat to the Warship and the Mako as straight and forgiving flyers. I've only thrown a Mako once, but I throw the Ibex and Warship a ton, and one thing for sure is i can range the Ibex better than just about any disc.

I think the rubber gives you an uncanny feel for Vibram discs. The Warship was always longer, so I prefer it for driving, but my Ibex can do things my Warship can't.

Happy carrying both; they've each carved out a nice niche in my slowly evolving bag.
