It's almost too grippy sometimes: yesterday I grip-locked my Ibex and threw it straight up into the air 90 degrees to my left.

For cold and wet though, nothing feelds better than X-Link.

I klive in South Eastern NC and I love my Vibrams but I have this same problem in the summer. The M-Xlink gets crazy tacky and sticky, but from October to mid March my bag is almost all Vibram.

Congrats on winning the BB!

Gone for a few days and come back to Part II, we must be moving up in the world of DGCR.

When it's warmer out, move to firm Xlink. It softens up a little in the heat, so its just about as durable as medium, and grips good, but doesn't get super tacky or "mushy" (those who have thrown medium or soft in high heat know what I mean).

I have a firm Trak that I picked up earlier this month that I'm going to try out when the heat and humidity really start coming. I'd love to see Vibram come out with a Fuse/Comet type mid and a Firebird/Pred like driver.

Played in some thundersnow today with gusting winds and used my xxx a lot even though opto plastic was slicker than snot on a doorknob. My tournament giant was a bit better but not much. Beefcake rubber can't come soon enough.

Hello Vibram peoples. I recently purchased an Ascent to try something different (can generally buy only Innova at stores around me). I am satisfied with my purchase. What should my second Vibram mold be. Im considering Obex.

Obex is a good bet, but I've recently introduced the lace to a bunch of innova throwers, and they are converting.

I feel like the Vibram thread is like a big support group!

So i have been meeting people up on the course when i can, and like a drug dealer have been pushing the product hard lol. It hasnt taken much to get people hooked. Mostly one disc. The..wait for it..angles start to sing.....LACE. it has probably sold me 6 player packs over the past two week, and what i mean by that, they ask for a driver and and tell them just let it rip. 3 of them through it just once. looked at me, and said Im in. I said you have to pick a putter too. Oh we get one of those too? I am about 5 weeks out from the event now, so my push is about to get a little stronger. We are starting flyers next week at local stores. But the guys who have thrown it, are now spreading the words of the Lace, so i might still be getting some more players just from that.

Hey you've prolly said a thousand times in various threads, but where are you holding your birdie bash? I'm in DFW and would like to get in if I have that weekend free.
