Vibram specs???

I just picked up a vibram Summit from my local secondhand sports shop. The specs online say 2/3/-1/0, which makes sense to me. However, the disc says 6.8/40/12/5..... (guessing the 40 is 4.0, but still confused)

I also picked up a Lace that has the frame where the specs would be printed, but no numbers.

Can someone please explain this to me? Most of my bag is Innova.

Vibram makes great putters, and the Summit is no exception. Unlike the Ridge and V.P., the Summit is an understable putter that has more turn than it does fade. If you threw the Summit at 40 miles per hour with a backhand throw, it would turn to the right 12 degrees and then fade back to the left 5 degrees. For the average golfer, this is a straight-flying disc that won’t fade much at the end of the flight. The Summit is a great putt and approach disc for beginners.

Thank you! That makes sense...but still a strange choice on their part...

So I'm guessing the conflicting numbers come from peoples' attempts to "convert" them to an Innova-type format

Vibram used a system unique to them. They have also exited the disc golf market.

For simplicity's sake, I would ignore their printed flight ratings, and just use the guesstimation that online retailers and reviewers have attributed to the disc.

Since I am not a big Vibram person and can't explain it better, just Google it. Vibram used a unique numbering system. the 40 , for example, is the speed ( in MPH , thanks OSU09) you need to throw that disc for it to achieve it's designed flight. It's on the back of some of them?

I know... weird right? Well, not to some, it does kinda make sense. But water under the proverbial bridge , go to the drop zone and play on.

In MPH.

I googled before posting this question. Most results give a vague description and tell you to look on vibram's website. Vibram's sites have no disc related content that I can see.

They are no longer making discs I believe. So information could be limited directly from them.

Sorry . I worded that terribly and was in a manic phase last night. Apologize for sounding callous or rude.

Those are not Innova flight numbers.
