Default Vibram Ibex vs Vibram Launch Video

I made a comparison video using only the Ibex and Launch in a head to head battle on my local course.

Ibex has been a staple in my bag for years, and the Launch is Vibram's latest midrange released on Black Friday.

In addition to the shot for shot comparison, I went back and recorded some commentary over it to give thoughts about what was going on, disc flights, etc. Would love some feedback on what I can do better for next time. Thanks!

Well that's disappointing.

I don't find the Launch listed on the sites I usually buy from, nor did I find it on the Vibram site. What are it's flight characteristic ratings?

Ibex is a great disc - my favorite Vibram mold.

Glad to see that other people are getting the same results, and it was not a fluke attempt at comparing the two. (Even if it may not be the flight people want/were expecting)

Thanks. I think i will voice over more since i have been lazy about making a written blog post and linking the video to it. It seemed easier, and quicker.

Ya, not the disc for me, but i know some people on the Vibram Facebook page that were not Ibex fans were happy for the alternative. Still anxiously awaiting a Comet in x-link rubber

I believe you can only get it from the vibram site, as it was not on the retailer order form last i checked. They officially released it on black friday. I have not seen official ratings yet, but the Ibex is commonly listed as 5/4/-1/1 (Infinite Discs) and I would put the Launch in the same category.
