Default x-link?

I am about to pull the trigger on my first Vibram discs.

Which x-link is preferred, firm or medium, and why?
Any comparsions on other plastics would be nice...champ/star...opto/gold L.

Not really comparable, as it is rubber-based. Firm has more plastic mixed in, so if you are comfortable with Star or GL, go with firm. The feel is not similar, but the stiffness is. It'll break in faster, too.

Medium is awesome. Grippy, durable, and minimizes how far discs will kick off trees. I would go medium to maximize the full Vibram experience.

I prefer Medium - it's more of a unique feel compared to Firm, and it's certainly not floppy or "unfirm," meaning it won't not be firm enough for you unless you like your discs hella firm. I've found Medium to be much grippier; it's probably the most awesome-feeling material in my hands personally.

Enjoy them! I love their putters.

Go medium, no doubt. I'm not a fan of the firm, feels slicker/oily, although I've heard more recent firm runs are less slick.
