Yes but softs can be hard to come by because they don't produce them very often. I know discgolfcenter won't really carry them anymore. You may check out GGGT or Marshall Street.

is there a vibram putter that is best into the wind? I figured it would be the VP but wanted to ask people that throw them.

Thanks

If you're looking for a wind putter it is most definitely the V.P. I own four of them two regular, one firm and one chunk. Best putter ever made in my opinion.

Enjoying my new VP, but it can still get blown a bit in the wind. Or maybe it's just me.

I mean, no disc is immune to wind, some just handle it better.

I am considering a change in putter this season and I have not tried any Vibram, but would like to.
Flight wise, the Summit is the closest to the Magic. They feel a lot different in the hand and the Summit will be more consistent on its line. Once it starts out straight, anny or some hyzer, that's what it does the entire flight with very little or no change at all. The Summit has less glide (more predictable - I personally prefer that in a putter).

As for the Pure, the Sole is the closest. The Sole has a little more low speed fade than the Grip Line Pure, but is very similar in flight to the Pure in Zero Line plastic.

As said before, X-link is not floppy at all. It's the medium flex.

The X-link Soft is as floppy as a Blowfly. If you like putters you can roll up and put in your back pocket, X-link Soft is the one for you.

Yep, you want heavy, overstable, and dead (glideless).

The VP rules this territory like no other disc, but, I was chuckling a bit the other day, when winds were 20 sustained, and gusting to 40, I was holding my VP to line up a putt and it started bouncing around in my hand like a bobble head doll.
Makes it hard to chain out, but it does make you learn to find the line that never lets the wind see the bottom of the disc.
I threw 2 upside downers when the gusts wouldnt stop, nice to have that move in the arsenal as well.
