I got my Summit for free (brand new) and I swear its magic. Only problem is that it's black and a pain to find (have to look for the yellow Vibram logo). Oh well, great disc either way.

I just picked up a VP and a Ridge last night and love them already. The Ridge drives and works like my rocs but I can tell they'll help my form already. I'm pretty sure they're firms which stinks because I believe they work better for anything but putting because when they don't stick THEY ROLL, like a tire down a hill. Biggest drawback by far. But I want to try the other plastics.

Also not sure how much I like them for putting... even though they're putters. Looking to try a Summit though.

Loop on other side for stool like Grip. Water bottle holders like Simian. Padded back with grooves to keep airflow between bag and back, like this:



14-16 main compartment. 2 in an adjustable putter pocket (so only 1 isn't floppy).

I'd buy it. Or actually, I'll gladly accept the first one as a "design fee".

There isn't much of that post I could nitpick on. Make this man's bag, it sounds border line perfect.

You realize black is like the first color that sells out on just about any putter right? Also that only the first run of any Vibram disc is run in black.

Stay in the fairway and you won't lose your disc no matter the color. Oh, and don't play in the dark with black discs. Ironically, I have never lost a clear or black disc. If you pay attention to your shot for the entire flight you typically stand a good chance of finding it. Compared to when you throw a bad shot, then drop your head in shame, only to realize you need to look back up to see where it goes. Doing the latter has cost me plastic.

Shots the roll into the brush or down a hill. And I normally play during the late afternoon (Georgia's WAAAAAAAAY too hot ).

I picked black myself and it was dumb. I wish I got the burgundy-ish one with the black speckles, but that would've blended with the pinestraw. Oh well, nice discs either way.

Met Steve Dodge at the Am Worlds last night and tried out the new softy putters. Made 8 of 10 shots right outside 20 feet and I've never felt so confident in a putter. I will be using these things and after gripping the Ascent I'm convinced I'm going to be a Vibram fan boy and one day (hopefully) player. I was talking to the guy who runs Sun King Discs at the fly mart (super cool dude by the one, friendliest vendor there) and he said "those things are the future of disc golf" and said so in a way that almost seemed remorseful.

I know it will be hard to tear people away from Discraft and Innova but I think time will speak for itself. I stuck around the Vibram table a bit, because Steve was giving away some stuff through a putting contest, and person after person came up to oohhh and aahhh the Ascent and Softy and check out the specialty discs they're making. I think it ended up being the most popular booth all night.

My bag is going Vibram and I'll be posting a lot more about it here soon as I test out my new Summit, Ridge, VP, and hopefully tonight Summit Softy.

(p.s. I'll be at the Am worlds clinic and Steve is letting people toss the Ascent around 8. My girlfriend and I will give it a try.)

I second this. Vibram products are wicked durable (accept maybe the five fingers?) and a bag like that would be pretty wicked.
