However, there was that rollaway on Winthrop gold, Hole#14 that's burned into my memory.
Totally my fault, of course, totally disasterous.

OK, so if I wanted to buy one Vibram golf disc - just for the sake of trying Vibram, not to fill a specific slot in my bag - which would everyone suggest?

Go.

I don't have much experience with all of the Vibram line up yet. I see myself throwing the Ridge for a long time...

So it's Ibex vs. Ridge. Hmmm...firmness suggestions?

I am definitely intrigued by both options, but I have kind of a surplus of mids. I tend to hyzer float a lot of my putts from a distance. Is the Ridge OK for this?

My ridge is my go to approach disc. You would be happy with either one. Both discs would work their way into your bag

The Ridge will stay with the line you put it on... I' prefer the medium Ridge... Vibram also has a great grip in colder weather, it stays tacky.. My other good plastic feels slick in the cold..
