That's what I was thinking - I've gotten pretty realistic about what I can do with this kind of disc, i.e. BUPKIS

The Lace is the easiest distance driver to get up to speed. It holds a line better than any distance driver. Even if you do not think you can throw a Max D driver, try the Lace, you will be surprised.

Fun Vibram Story-

I was at an Ice Bowl on Saturday helping out, after the player mtg a friend came up and asked if I had any putters cause he left his (Wizards) at home in the practice basket or something. I lent him a M Ridge and he went on to win his division (ADV)!

I agree. My wife is having the best drives of her life with a light Lace. Her fastest disc before that was a Teebird. She can get the Lace out to about 250 feet, and has hit 300 numerous times. She releases with a little anny and gets a real nice s-curve out of it.

I have a full man-crush on the Lace right now. It's such a versatile disc IMO. Powers up for big bombing hyzers and annys, and powers down great if you need to carve lines or need OS shots that just hit the ground and stick.

I'm contemplating getting a max weight Lace to compliment my 170 because I'd like to get just a little more fade at the end of it's flight. Can anyone speak to a heavier weight being more overstable?

I use mine FH more often than BH, give it a try. Not saying it slacks on a BH drive or anything. That may be due to the courses I play, less open air it out type of holes, but the Lace is incredibly predictable for me with a FH shot.

It is not significant, but my 172g is more stable at high speed than my 167g.

This has been gone over many times before, please lets not get into this again untill something is confirmed .

On another note, i wonder if there is anyone as pedantic as myself... Not only do i give my new vibram rubber a wash but i also peel off the excess flash from the rim with a knife and sandpaper it a bit .

I used to wash my Vibrams until I realized... Dirty Vibrams are super grippy.
