They had a lot of potential IMO and I actually like the Obex and Lace/it’s variants a lot. Still don’t know if there is a backhand driver I throw farther than the Lace I lost.

I wonder now that disc golf is on another boom due to covid if they would consider setting up again?

I doubt vibram would, but I bet they would sell off their molding pieces. So somebody could.

I wonder if you could adapt them for plastic use or if they could only be used on the rubber press? The system was very interesting, but it seems like it would only work within their factory.

Somebody else could come up with a rubber blend.

I had a beat Lace that was my go to for a while, till I lost it. Damn, did that thing have glide.

Bagged an Ibex for a while, which falls between a Comet and a Buzzz in terms of stability. One of the straightest discs I've ever thrown.

Currently using a beat ESP Buzz in that slot, but I wasn't happy we they decided to exit DG.


But $300 for a Trek??? Hell, I think I got a few never thrown Vibrams I'd be willing to sell for just $100.

The Shryke is basically a plastic version of the Lace. The Ibex was a nice straight mid. I liked the Obex in lighter weights. The good runs of Ascent were one of my favorite fairways. I still bag a Summit from time to time.

For how much people were eager to see big companies get involved in disc golf, it was weird to see all the Vibram hate. Maybe it was just Steve Dodge.

Steve is a polarizing guy. Vibram probably never would have made a mold without him, but possibly didn’t reach their potential because of him. Definitely a good idea man, the DGPT was his brainchild as well right?

Always felt that the fact that they only made one ove disc each that were very under or overstable hurt them a bit. Not a whole lot of super beginner friendly discs other than the Ibex and the Solace was the only thing they made that was actually overstable.

The Notch is o/s, as is the Crag.
Towards the end, they put out a few more different fairway molds - Arch, Valley, Vamp & Onyx, which are fairly straight to understable.

Still use the Obex. Very straight with predictable fade at the end. Been using it more than my Buzzz lately.

Maybe someone would pick up their dies, the way that GGGT picked up Lightning Discs.

I can't imagine you ever going Buzzzless....
