They probably won't be adding any testers for the near future. They ran way more birdie bashes last year than they expected, so when one of the prizes for that was a spot on the tester team, they added 100 people there.

Oh yeah I'm totally shamed.

They bring out their product line slowly and I have stated in the past I appreciate that because it results in a quality product.

i like that vibram moves slowly but i think they could speed up a little say 2/3 molds a year.

I talked to Steve and they said they should be doing 4 molds next year. Starting early spring then i would say 1 every 3 months.

They won't even make difference color glows due to the quality of the product. That is one of the main concern that Steve brought out when he was in Cincinnati. Vibram does not make a lot of discs but has a quality product.

They expect the glows to last 3-4 hours and the different color glows did not last that long. Even though in my opinion they wont have a problem moving different color glows they wont make them.

how is 3 new mold in a year cut quality. i am not talking about 3 a month like some companies. 1 disc every 4 months in this industry is moving turtle slow. i love the feel and quality of vibram discs. I carry an all vibram bag but there are shots i don't have because of it. would like to be able to round out the bag better.

They should be releasing discs when they are ready to, not to meet some arbitrary # per year goal. That's when quality goes out the window in many situations.
