You should thank Kyle Maute of Phenix Disc Sports as he is the one that convinced me to come out and visit Colorado. I smell a Vibram Birdie Mini challenge, with the winner earning a spot on the Vibram Tester Team. See you in June!
I might have to clear out my schedule more than I am for my trip to worlds for this. I'll bring my camera too and see if we can't get some footage for the TV show, HA! Kyle is a great guy and is really stepping up in the Colorado Disc Golf world right now.

For those of you who do not know, Kyle is the man behind Phenix Disc Golf, maker of the best quad straps out there and Pinnacle Retailer of Vibram. I feel lucky to be in the same state as this man.

It absolutely can hold some power. The VP is the give-it-all-you-got overstable putter and the Ridge is right down the middle in my opinion. Huck it for some slight turn over or throw it wing down as hard as you can for a flip uptp flat but not over. It really changed my game. I think my x-link Ridges fly just like S-Wizards but with less glide. They're amazing.

I wish I threw vibram a lot sooner so you could have. I've had some sweet but crazy skips with softs. Missing my soft ibex more and more. I'm starting to hate my firm one.

Goodness yes. The Ridge is a great putter for driving. Straight as an arrow all the way to the ground. You will be happy.

The Ridge is probably my most thrown disc now, so much love for this thing.

how about the summit? i cant seem to find a granite ridge in anything over 169, and i tend to use 173-75 to putt with. is the summit pretty understable? how about the v.p.? is it super overstable?

I would say so.... I hyzer flip my Summit quite a bit. Not to mention, once you put anny on it, it ****ing holds it. Wonderfully workable disc. I have a 174 that I putt with and a 165 (thanks Justin) that I drive with. The 165 glides noticeably longer.

Oh, they are both medium. I have a 173 soft summit that is definitely more understable.
