I play ultimate anywhere from once to four times a week at lunch time for maybe 45 minutes at a time.  A fairly casual game, but with a mix of average to fairly skilled players.  Yesterday myself and another player ventured to play in our Treks.  All in all it went great, really only slipped a bit once. 

As much as I enjoyed playing in them compared to cleats, I'm a bit concerned that the fabric won't really be durable enough to take the stress of fast direction changes.  My friend says he is going to continue to play in his, I'm still on the fence as $125 is a lot for "cleats" that I may tear up in a month of playing.  Anyone have experience with using Treks in this manner?

I think the Komodo Sports are more designed for quick directional changes and would be a better fit for ultimate frisbee.  Check out the review here

thanks for pointing me to that review, I had not seen it previously.  I'll have to consider getting a pair of Komodos now. . . .

Definitely go for the purchase, I play ultimate once a week and my komodosports will work out great.

I used to play ultimate barefoot, but unfortunately, some of the other players wore cleats. After getting my toes crushed a few times, I started wearing cleats as well. =(
