I must admit, I love the way Vibram discs look! I have a couple in my bag, but neither have become go to’s yet. For putting I prefer my Yeti Pro over the Vibram models, and for a fairway driver, I find the Orc & the Viking more consistent than the Ascent. I haven’t tried a Trak yet, so no opinion there. (This might just sound like I’m an Innova apologist, I’m not, I’ll use whatever works.) One of the things I do love about Vibram though is their desire to innovate. I really appreciate this about the company. (The same reason I’m pretty pumped about MVP dics too).
Both the Ibex and Sole look pretty intriguing. Can’t wait to try them out. The Ibex especially, if the whole “holds a right line with minimal fade” thing is true.
It actually took me three tries to get this dye right. The first time I cut out the stencil it was backward when I affixed it to the disc because I forgot that the image would be reversed. Since I had never dyed words before, I wasn’t thinking about it. The second try, I re-cut the stencil, and I dyed the disc for 30 minutes, but my dye was too watered down to substantially make a mark on Champion plastic. The third and final time, I finally got it right. I upped the concentration of the dye and left it exposed for about 3.5 hrs. It probably caused a slight bit of bleeding because of the long exposure, but I’m still pretty happy with the result.
She’s the one for me. She’s all I really need oh yeah.
Star Katana w/ Broncos Emblem Design - First Attempt
I’ve been meaning to try my hand at dying a few discs for a while now, but I finally got around to it tonight. Here is the inaugural run…and I’m not too disappointed with how they came out. There’s room for improvement, but I didn’t screw up either disc so bad that I’m embarrassed to carry them. So that’s a win for me.
