The Vibram X-Link Firm Ascent is a stable to over-stable fairway driver and the first driver made by Vibram. It is designed for disc golfers with good arm speed that are looking for a consistent fairway driver that combines great grip with high durability. The rubber based material tends to hit and stick, minimizing skip-away. The Ascent is the disc you reach for right before you reach the Ridge or Summit. Fitting, yes?

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.
