Yeah, I definitely think it's understood that you don't rely strictly on the tester team. Somebody was complaining about the lack of testers in the Twin Cities area when there are somewhere in the 4-5 area.

It is extremely similar to a Roc. My Obex flies like a fresh DX Roc, maybe just a hair faster. Go to the inbounds online flight chart and you can see just how similar they are.

I actually sort of like this. I have four Ascents: two fly like you'd expect them too and the other two fly almost identical to Banshees, which I absolutely love and I get a lot of use out of both flight paths. However, I do like the fact that I can grab any VP, Ridge, Summit, Ibex, Obex, or Trak out of my back up bag or off the shelf and I am going to consistently get the flight charecteristics I'm expecting. (I'm sure the Sole is just as consistent but I don't throw them anymore)

is there any easy way to distinguish the overstable ascents aside from a higher plh? didn't know if they were in a certain weight range, some kind of anomaly like the oldschool starlight destroyers and bosses that innova had a few years ago.

i wouldn't mind picking a few up.

Now we've just got to figure out the order.
Overstable first please!! Mr. Dodge, this post is like music to my ears. Its like my birthday and Christmas all in one. A bag? SWEET. OS & US Lace? SWEET. Mobex and Ubex? SWEET. Another putter that is between Ridge and Summit in stability? SAWEET. Too much rubber goodness!! Legendary.

Yes! This is great news! I do hope an OS fairway or high speed driver is next on the agenda. Can you give us an estimate on a release date for the next disc?

There are some of us that would like to be able to say we only throw Vibram.

Rumor has it this was Lace testing here in the Denver area.

I wish there was something that made the more OS ones apparent but I have not heard of or figured it out myself. My Ascent flips more than I would like it to and I really cannot crank on it, making it good for easy approach forehands only. Thus the reason the MOFWY is is on the list from Mr. Dodge.
