I threw my Ridge yesterday at Deer Lakes. I was impressed. It took a good snap and flew dead nuts straight. The surface is a little slick, but nothing that cant be fixed with time (I hope) I had 2 potential ace runs the flew straight at the basket, just off by a little

Awesome! That is the exact kind of thing the Team Vibram guys tell me as to why the Ridge is the best driving putter on the market. Dead nuts straight and it can take a lot of snap and speed. Thanks for the kudos. I'm going to go have a great Memorial Day weekend.

The summit flies nothing like the voodoo though, maybe its weight distribution or something, but Voodoos are wayyy more stable

The Summit flies similar to a Magic. Straight putts all the way in the circle. Turns over when driving. Very easy to control at slow speed. A lot easier to drive than the Magic, because of the low profile.

Cut and paste from another one of my posts on another thread:

I played with a guy yesterday who turned out to be sponsored by Vibram. After the round he gave me a Trek. Tried it out multiple times in a field today and it performs exactly like my 11x Champ Eagle-X and 12x Champ Eagle-L. Holds a line with an impressive amount of power (400') from a slight hyzer-flip. It's got great grip and it's a solid disc, although it looks like a pencil eraser! Someone joked that I could use it to 'erase' strokes on the course.

Forgive me if this has been covered, but are the Vibram mini's just re-purposed dog toys?

Stop trying to impress us with your power.

(This was said in a spirit of envy that you were given a prototype disc out of the blue.)

Wait, I'm confused. I thought the Trek was supposed to be more Leopard like. Are you sure you didn't throw an early proto Trek (which I heard were more stable) or an Ascent?

All I know is it says 'Trek' on the rim and it's shaped almost exactly like the Eagle. Flies exactly the same way too!

Sort of, but the other way around, and the dog toys are made of a different rubber based compound and are 100% edible (apparently some dogs eat anything).
