I really don't see why they would want to replace the Trak and the Ascent - keep them around, they are very nice discs, especially the Ascent. They have precious few molds as it is.

The ascent is an amazing disc. i just got an ace with one. I bag a players cup ascent, 2 granite ascents and a fresh big flight # new ascent for overstable or headwind shots.

Weird part is i like the older rubber compared to the newer stuff they are doing. It feels more gummy and grippy and i feel like it flies better.

Yeah, it doesn't make sense to cease production of those discs entirely unless there are problems with the mold parts (consistency/excess waste). I am speculating but perhaps the new mold designs allow them to mold discs more efficiently. They are already at a disadvantage in that regard compared to their injection molding counterparts.

In Steve's words, "There is just too much overlap with the Ascent and Trak."

They are replacing the Ascent and Trak with three molds. Each will be different. Notch, Arch and Valley. Its a good thing.

I am not a fan of what Vibram did. I agree that the trak was close to the ascent. however replacing the whole lineup of fairway drivers. We still need 2 mid ranges and badly. Maybe could have gone for faster fairway drivers like speed 9-10

Also Vibram will have the float rubber coming out. not to sure on this. 130 class discs just dont go well with my timing.

Opting for a smaller bag: VP, Summit, Ridge, Ibex, Obex, Valley, Ascent, unLace, Lace, o-Lace, Solace... also taking out the softs now that it's getting warmer outside! Hoping the Notch will be out soon! I'm getting better with tomahawks/thumbers, but I need some more practice with RHBH! Putting seems to be coming along nicely! I took 1st place in doubles with my partner at league last week, so that's nice!
