With all due respect... until you've thrown a VP, you haven't thrown the best approach putter made. No kidding.

As for putting... try the Ridge and Sole. Many like the Summit if understable putters are your flavor.

Hey Steve,

Has a sole with the ridge bead been thought of yet? The soles shape never bothered me but I've become partial to beads. I liked the ridge but the lack of glide got to me after a few months. I just recently acquired a few clozers and really like the added glide. After a few weeks I got the connection of feel and shape of the sole minus the bead of course and thought how nice the sole would feel with the bead plus the added stability to a drive. I also got a little homesick not putting with my vibram, just love the feel. Anyway this was something I pondered the other day. Hope it sparks some interest.

Are there any Pinnacle Retailers that are not getting the Lace in the store by the 23rd?

As far as I know they shipped out the Lace in time so that all the Pinnacle retailers may have them by then. So unless there are shipping issues, I bet all Pinnacles should have them. Someone more informed on this subject may be able to provide more insight than me, though.

I can honestly say we've never considered this. The Sole seems quite deep as is, so adding a bead would make it crazy deep (imo).

Do what legacy did and make the profile lower and add a bead to make the height/depth less weird. A magnet with a bead would feel horrible, but the clozer feels ok in my hand cuz its not litterally a magnet with a bead but close

Not adding just incorporating one, maybe a slight increase in degree of the bevel to allow for a larger chamfer for the bead.

Could make it a little faster but still have nice stability, would kinda be like a ridge with glide.
