I threw my soft Sole, Trak and Ibex yesterday. Four month hiatus, ice on the ground winter gear and a too short throwing area with rear winds. The Trak was sensitive to the grip bending easily even when the fingers were pulling the rim to outside edge against the palm. The bending was worse with other finger pulling directions so a mild grip was a must initially. I didn't detect problems with the few throws i got with a late hard pinch with the index finger and the thumb. The soft Trak i have had a little downward deformation in the flight plate. The material is too soft to maintain shape in a bag with other discs but in 36F the grip wasn't an issue tackiness wise even with the snow that was a little moist from being in the sun and the air being above freezing point. The flight was more understable than a regular Trak in the high speed portion of the flight. The wind and conditions of the underpowered throws made it hard to say about the LSS but i got the impression the fade is later and milder with the soft. Unlike the normal Trak the soft is a fairly straight hyzer flipper that would stay in the fairway on tighter holes that are not tunnels.
The Ibex glides more than a C MD2 and might be a little faster and is only a little longer but the difference is there each time. Surprisingly good HSS without flipping with a sure fade that would be too much on the tightest holes underpowered. A perfect good mid other than for the softer material than the Trak. You can't grip hard because the disc deforms in more axes than one with even a moderate grip. OAT it and it will bend so much that you could very well be frightened by it because it is an unusual feeling. That could lead to an early release.
The Sole is unwise in the material floppiness IMO. While a clean throw with a very mild grip without pinching it in the end can fly fine out to approximately 260' and perhaps more without the restrictions i had i don't think the material would work in any higher temps. It is too borderline for repeatable performances if you ever have even minute OAT at 36F. Who doesn't once in a while? This weakness could turn to a strength in much colder conditions as the disc freezes to become more solid. The flight is great especially for a disc that isn't as tall as a lid. There is some lid likeness in the flight but with much more HSS. I did not get any turn at all so it is a bonus but the fade was very lid like and the action was very slow indeed. I can't say about the annies and hyzers because all i threw were lasers. I can't tell about how it would stick to the ground on grass, rocks etc. but it is fast enough to probably move a little after landing on fast tosses if it lands away from flat. With the super floppiness barring rollers the bounces should be inconsequential everywhere else but near cliffs. Which is a consideration around here.
There are few straighter putter drivers out there. The height is enough for a large handed player to get a hold of and tolerable to a medium hand sized short fingered thrower with large motion range of the fingers. I didn't have finger sticking issues so that is nice. The matte feeling surface feel produced a better grip outside than i anticipated based on indoors fondling. No slippage issues even with the necessary light grip. I can't tell what would happen with a full power throw though.
I wasn't putting with the Sole but i threw it at low power too and there is some fade and the glide is among the best of the drivers but with significantly less for a laser putter than light APXs, Ions, Anodes and Rattlers. The Anode flies even straighter and glides a little better but is slick so if a regular Sole shares the flight path and ain't too floppy (haven't touched one yet) it could be a good rainy day substitute for the Anode/Ion for laser putters. For those that don't want their putter flying too far to overlap with the mids and reducing the chances of overthrowing the basket the Sole is easier to limit the range with so it has that going for it. I like this disc a lot if you can get over the material. I hope the firmer version flies the same and is rigid and tacky enough so that i won't have to endure slips of the Anode or pick a more fading disc. As it is i have a Pure in the softer plastic for that eventuality but at least in the firmer plastic for some reason i lose repeatability at over 230' so it ain't a fix and the soft APX is not a good driving putter although in lighter weights it covers the Anode/Ion for laser putts and sorter approaches without trouble. Thus far i've had to make compromises in tunnels in the rain. I will buy a regular Sole to see if it solves the problems if it is rigid and tacky enough.
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.
