The Vibram X-Link Ridge is a stable putt and approach disc golf disc. It excels at the finesse approach and can handle a power drive. It likes to hold the line and will fly true. As a putter, the ridge has a comfortable grip and a smooth and natural release. It works well as a hyzer putter and a straight line putter. The X-Link material helps it grab the chains and stay in the basket.

Vibram Plastic Characteristics
The X-Link material is a unique rubber-based compound which resists scuffs, has incredible durability and unequaled grip. Additionally, X-Link has a strong memory. If you do manage to bend it out of shape, in all likelihood it will work its way back.
X-Link Firm is a rubber-based compound which is based on Vibram’s X-Link. It is a special blend designed to maximize the firmness of the disc while maintaining as much of the grip and durability that is found in the base X-Link material. Over 50 formulations were tested in the creation of X-Link Firm to create its optimal performance.
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. Contact us by mid-September to order your favorite models of X-Link Soft discs.
