I have one Ridge with a sunken top. That's the way I bought it. I haven't noticed a big difference compared to my other 6 Ridges. It's one of my "backyard putters".

Both my med Ridge and Summit have sunken tops; the Ridge more so than the Summit. I don't remember what they were like when I bought them but they are both considerable less stable then when I bought them (my Ridge is now super straight). I actually like that for these two discs but I want my newer Ridge (that has a very slight dome) to keep its reliable fade. I assumed that the gradual sinking of the tops was what caused the gradual loss in stability, but I am not sure. For those who have used these for a while without the tops sinking at all, have you had any loss in stability?

My medium Ridge, which has spent the most time in the field, and has the most tree hits, has changed very slightly since new. I'm sure rubber has a much better memory than any plastic formula, but it is still subject to the same laws of physics when it comes to molecules changing after repeated impacts, so its not cryptonite, it will change.

Sunken tops is confirmed way to make a disc less stable, ala the Yeti Pro, so thats no secret.

My new SF Ridge seems to behave nearly identical to the Ridge I mentioned above, despite it being new, and a different stiffness.
The one thing about Vibram is thier consistency.

That being said I still swear my first run Chunk VP flies straighter than any other VP I have ever thrown,
almost " Ridge like ", which is why I prefer it over all the others.

The only Vibram disc that I've had noticeable changes in stability is my first medium Ascent. I've thrown it in west Texas so much that the edges are chewed up pretty good. It's a lot less stable than it used to be. I can sand it a little and it's back to straight again, but I keep hitting rocks and honey locust trees with it... the putters I use out there are still "like new".
