I can't wait til the first runs are done and we can get some for a little cheaper. I think this should be a nice disc to add to the bag.

I don't know about this. (did you post it previously or did I read it somewhere else). Aaron has been throwing his for close to a full season, I'll ask him what he thinks.

I think what dodgeman is trying to say is that apothecary doesn't have the arm speed

i think i might've posted it on DGR, or earlier in this thread.. i only noticed it cuz it was a rather dewey (is that the right word?) morning so i had to wipe them off a lot and i noticed when they were dry, they felt kinda chalky

You are a very patient man (at least in communication, I'll bet you have some more colorful conversations with your buds about some of these guys). It just puzzles me...I don't hype up my sponsors as much as some of these guys are consistently pasting your threads with unintelligible negativity, and I'm being compensated for my discourse. I don't understand the motivation behind it...If you don't like something then explain yourself and move on rather than trying to start a smear campaign. Perhaps all the negative political advertising over the past few months is to blame...

other reasons include, but are not limited to:

yes, i really feel this way.
I have heard this comment about the yellow Vibram octagon on the disc. Some people are genuinely going to dislike it, and we will need to live with that.

I did not realize that the dislike was aesthetic. Thank you.

My guess would be that he cares about the quality of his product and he wants to improve it?

just because you have a reading comprehension problem doesnt make my points unintelligible....

i see all these fanboys who are all into the latest disc craze throwing vibram discs and its hurting their game and they dont seem to notice. so many on here saying 'rarara vibram makes good shoe rubber so their discs must rule too!!'

i guess it pisses me off that some people have such bad taste in plastic.

It's not plastic. It's rubber.

I'm far from a Vibram expert, but I've never seen one of the putters in white. Steve, do you guys make white discs?
