Plastic and the rubber/plastic elastomer of Vibram Disc Golf don't fly the same. The V.P. is a flat-top, deep rim putter, which barely glides unless given considerable spin.

I haven't thrown a Rhyno, but I've felt them, and I'd say the V.P. and Rhyno feel similar, though V.P. don't have the thumbtrack.

The Vibram Sole would be most similar to the Aviar, because both are traditional, dome-y putters.

I asked in the 'what's this disc worth' thread but didn't get an answer, is there a market for pre-release vibram open VPs?

No, not really. Most runs fly the same, so throwers aren't going to pay a premium for them. The raised letter VPs from the 2008 Open are collectable, as are the Chunks, and proto softs, some Jupiters, the few Super Firms, and the 50/50s.

These are the ones I'm talking about. All black, raised letters, nothing on the back of the flight plate.

The raised letter VPs have stayed at around $100.00 for the last few years.
The mold is destroyed, so no copies will ever be made. Not sure on original run #s, Steve probably remembers.

I saw an all-black, sunken top VP, but I didn't buy it... probably should have, but I am more of a thrower, not a collector, per se.
