Anyone who doesn't like throwing a Comet doesn't understand how to throw a disc. Period.

The Comet... continue to enjoy it without my participation. Certainly Discraft is not going to go bankrupt over it.
The Roach is a very gold mold. I wipe the stamps on mine.

RIP Vibram. I never threw any of their stuff and every pair of shoes I've ever had with a Vibram sole has been very uncomfortable. Way too stiff.

I loved their shoes for a long time, only one bad pair it was their sole not their shoes.

I think their material had potential but they couldn't let go of a few ideas that hurt the product.

Bummed to see such a big fish exit the pond.

This makes me sad. Especially since I've been using the Ridge as my putter for a very long time. I can't say I'm surprised with Mr. Dodge gone now, and Maple Hill no longer being the Vibram Open.

So, bummer to see any disc golf company step down, but not a big deal in my day-to-day. As long as they keep making the great soles and tread patterns I enjoy in shoes, I'm good.

Never got around to throwing any of their stuff, even in my first year when I bought everything in sight. Didn't like the look & feel of the discs at all.

Hey so where do we pick up super cheap OOP plastic? The Vibram site had something like 25-30% off. Not going to do it for me.

Could you elaborate on the ideas that hurt the product? I unfortunately never have thrown a vibram disc and don't know much about their foray into DG. Every time I thought to myself I wanted to check out something of theirs I ended up with the impression that I couldn't find anything that my buzzzes, rocs, teebirds, eagles etc couldn't do better.

EDIT: Just realized in my previous post I referred to the vibram discs as "plastic" - maybe this is telling, heh
