Steve warned me of potential drying/cracking issues on the softs, so I use Lacrosse Rubber Conditioner on them about 2x per year. All of mine (13 VPs, 3 Summits, or 10 or so Ridges) are still as supple as ever.

So I played a tiki round with just the sole and I really enjoy the disc. It has good glide, holds lines well and is easy to throw. The thing that is keeping me from putting it in the bag is the fact that vibram discs cater to someone who isn't a mold minimalist like me. If I put the sole in the bag right now I will have a stable DX aviar, a sole and then a flippy dx aviar in the bag instead of the stable, straight, flippy aviar set up I have now. With the sole in the bag, it will break up my aviar cycle.

I like Magnets becouse of how easy they are to work and how they break. I have not spent much time with Vibram putters do they ever break in.

Please disregard question. After reading a few pages in this thread the answer is no. I still want to pick up a Sole when they are released.

I threw the Ibex at a tournament this weekned and it had a good flight. It flew like a shorter buzzz imo. I only played catch with it for a short while but my buddy that bought it threw it during the round with good results.

Ibex is better than the Axis. hands down

(I still prefer the QMS to both)

Have you thrown the C-MD2? How would it compare to the QMS?

A bit more detail as to why would be nice...

He has a cannon for an arm and the lesser glide of Ibex (i think, not having thrown one) makes it veer off course less with every degree of missed hyzer angle. And lesser glide means easier ranging.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

yes the ibex gives me more control. Very similar to control to my QMS. The ibex does have good glide, much better than other Vibram discs. The Axis doesn't like really high power and performs better on "pure" lines. I just have generally not enjoyed overmold discs. The Axis reminds me of the Flying Squirrel...
