What obex were you throwing. A fresh obex and a fresh roc3 are close but the obex is going to be less stable than a fresh roc3.



However there is so many combinations that come into factor when you compare discs. Vibram is the hardest to understand what is stable and what is not. Some of the obexes will have a 1 on the back of the disc. That is a more stable run of obex. Also the multi firm discs are more stable. The half medium/firm molds. The micro granite are usually more stable. Original run and solids are not that stable. They will go straight with a small bit of fade at the end.

Obex seems to power down really nicely with a soft fade...

Ibex flies straight into a headwind, however any form flaws will show with the Ibex. Same goes for the Obex. Which is why I think that Vibram mids aren't as popular as they should be...

Best comparisons:

Ibex = Truth = Buzzz
Obex = Roc

The Arch is an amazing disc. It has awesome glide. It will hold anhyzers and slowly fade out flat. Thrown flat it will turn over and come back a little bit. This is my go to fairway driver in my bag.

The one vibram I had was an ibex, or obex, don't remember... But the rubber was super slick, weird for rubber right?

It was just like a roc3

I think the Arch is very similar to an Eagle. It's a great fairway mold. I personally prefer the Ibex more in the mid lineup, though.
