Default Just floating this out there.

Has anyone heard any news lately about Vibram's floating material?

I have a floater Obex, just sitting in a bin waiting for a chance to be tested out.

If you click here you can read the little blurb on their website.

I haven't looked to see if float showed up in any other molds in quite a while. The only place I've seen them is on the Vibarm store.

Thanks but their store had been saying they're sold out for a half a year.

I see.

I wonder if they'll run them like they use to run glows, one batch a year.

Well if that's the case, I hope I don't miss the next run! I'm excited to try an over-stable floating disc like an o-lace!

I've heard that there are some consistency issues, i.e. some don't float... probably why they have been tabled.

I just want to let everyone know, the floating material is way more stable than the other rubbers! I bought the O-Lace in float rubber instead of the lace because other light floating discs from other manufacturers are more understable than their heavier counterparts. When I tried to throw the O-lace, it immediately faded and fell out of the air! Way too stable for me! So I ordered an Unlace in float. It is more stable than my broken-in Lace! I absolutely love it!!! If you're looking for a more overstable consistent floating disc get the Vibrams!

For them to float they need to be less than 147 grams (so i'm told).

I am just wanting some solid discs that are STABLE that still float, closert I've found is the Lightning Discs #2 driver. 175g and it floats 100% flight # like 8/4/-1/2 not a bad disc. But my buddy is a VIBRAM fanatic and he's been wanting these out. I'd love to get a Lace that is stable and will float nicely for those risky shots over water
