I got a Vamp from the Infinite VIP club and decided to grab a few used molds from a local shop and was actually happy with how they flew. I'm not huge on the feel, look, or smell... ... ... the smell. But, they do fly great and are excellent in cold weather.

Your sense of smell is likely diminished. I've only fondled them, but they definitely smell. It's not strong or anything, but it's there.

Mystery solved! (about the new disc, not the smell).

This morning, Vibram announced the release of the Launch, a mid described as "a stable, straight flyer that will help beginners and slower arms gain more confidence."

It sounds a lot like an Ibex to me.

I dont think they would phase out the Ibex/Obex like they did the Trak/Ascent but I suppose its possible. Maybe they are just trying to hone in on the begginer market?

I considered getting one for my niece,but its not part of their Black Friday sale, sooooo....

There's plenty of room for a mid more US than an Ibex. Hopefully this is it.

I agree. I've been hoping for a Vibram version of a Meteor, but the description just doesn't sound like it.

So, has anyone heard when/if the new disc gets PDGA approval? Assuming mine will show up before my next tourney and if it fits I would like to play it. But................
