The Ibex X-Link is the soft flexible version of Vibram plastic. This disc is also available in stiffer blends called X-Link Medium and X-Link Firm.
The feel of these discs is gummy and flexible but the mold of the disc itself is rigid providing a nice grippy consistency that inspires confidence.
Vibram's first mid-range, the Ibex, is a stable, controllable approach disc.
The Ibex can handle a good amount of power and does not mind powering down and holds a hyzer straight much longer than one would expect.
If you've got good arm speed, you are going to love popping the Ibex high up in the air on a slight anny and watching it take a smooth, seemingly unending fade.
X-Link Soft is a niche rubber-based compound. This material is the closest to pure rubber of Vibram’s three materials. In the putter line, this material flies well and will hit and stick, minimizing deflections. It also works well as a learning tool as the floppy material performs best when proper form is used. Note: Due to X-Link Soft being almost pure rubber, this material will dry and crack if left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time.
X-Link Soft is a special run that is only made once a year, usually in late September, early October. Make sure to ask your local retailer to order some X-Link Soft discs for you so you can get your hands on this limited version of X-Link.
Three reasons to carry X-Link Soft:
- Hit and Sit. X-Link Soft ricochets and rolls much less than other discs. Landing on a fast green? Throw an X-Link Soft and improve your odds.
- Great for form. While X-Link Soft flies very well - even the drivers - it does require good form. It is used as a diagnostic tool by many players. Nice and smooth.
- Insane Durability X-Link Soft is the closest to pure rubber of all of our X-Links. As such, X-LInk Soft is incredibly durable and scuff resistant - and feels great too!
Also Available in X-Link Medium and X-Link Firm, our rubber based material providing optimal grip & durability.
