Default New disc

I just got an email from Vibram that on Friday morning there will be discounts on Vibram products and "a new disc on its way!" I'm guessing either an OS or US mid. Has anyone heard anything?

Hopefully OS mid. I dont know why but the Vibram brand has just really died off here in Colorado. Its very rare to see any out on the course theae days.

Not too much Vibram here in the ATL area, either. Maybe they need to step up marketing all over?

It must be an announcement about a future release, because no new Vibram discs have been approved by the PDGA.

Nobody said the entire Vibram company was going out of business, nor do any of us think they are just a disc golf business. Just pointing out their discs have fallen out of favor around here.

Anyway, I read the email as well and it definitely says a new disc. Maybe their gripes with the PDGA have led to not even putting it up for approval? Seems silly when I type it out...

Well, they haven't "died off" out here in Innova country, they never got going.

Vibram is big, golf discs have to be pretty far down their list of priorities. Just some cheap cash flow to take advantage of a "fad"?

A lot of what I've thrown of theirs was pretty good, the Solace and Lace are solid drivers. Ibex and VP are good. Just need more exposure.

I love their glow too. Best out there, but it's rare to see many in the course.

I've thrown the Ibex and Summit, good discs. Never really took to the gritty rubber feel though.
