Looks pretty cool with the offset logo. I haven't really thrown the putters but I like seeing a company like Vibram making DG equipment.

looks a lot like a Teebird, which ain't a bad thing.

Ive been testing these for a few weeks. I just got the stiff version last night. They fly comparable to a Teebird or Eagle-X.

Id expect these to go into alot of bags. Its really easy to throw but has good stability for all shots.

if you've tested them that long, how's the durability working out, Chase? Put any point blank into a tree trunk yet?

Its pretty good.

Im using an X-Link Soft ( the first they sent ) for everything, including thumbers. Its still decently stable.

I can't wait for these to hit the market, I have a love affair with the VP's and I'm getting a Ridge soon.

There isnt a ton of difference between the 2.

The Ascent is very similar to an Eagle or a Teebird.
The most common statement from people I have had throw them so far is that they are really easy to throw right away.
Chase is right about them being stable.
They are not super stable, but you can throw them with some decent power and they hold the line very well.

In stock, along with the floppiest putters I have ever seen, possibly.

The soft x-link putters we just got is borderline liquid.

The offset logo should cause a slight oscillation,this in my experience has caused a very straight flight on some test models made at quest. I have not seen these around yet in this area.Do you have one?let me know what you think.

Chase has had testers in his bag for a while I think. From what I've read elsewhere online the logo doesn't really make much difference. Now, the new Vector and the Ion with the overmold on it are supposed to very gyroscopic and hold speed later in flight. I have a couple Ions but couldn't get past the grip to really try them out.

Yeah, I've been hearing a lot of hype about those Vectors as well. Not to mention watching Jussi throw the crap out of an Ion, dear lord.

I have an Ascent and a Trek (proto's) , the inside lip is angled out and they tend to slip my grip a bit. They are both more over stable than I thought they would be. I like the non skip rubber that allows the disc to be played right to the pin. The Trek is being renamed the Trak I have heard (copyright). The discs have a texture to them and in my opinion makes them slip in the hand a bit.

I've had an Ascent for a month or 2 and I'm a fan. It's a straight flier and tough. Great for the tight lines and wooded holes. Never could throw a Teebird well so this is my answer.
A bad day at disc golf is still better than a good day at anything else.... Unless its also disc golf
