I got this 174 X link Granite Ridge recently, so I know thier out there.

Summit is understable, but not crazy flippy because it lacks big glide. VP is overstable, but there are other putters out there that will fade sooner, and harder.

thanks for that info. the vibram putters just seem like a win win to me. a base plastic feel, in a super premium rubber. i think ill try a summit and a V.P., worst case is i like them both and the compliment each other well. but let me know if you wanna come off that ridge or any other granite goodies you may have

Its easy to transition between the VP/Ridge/Summit putters, they are all pretty much the same mold size and shape, with just a change in bead, so the feel is the same for each.
Much easier than adjusting between other over/stable/under combos, like say, a Rhyno and a Polecat, which have completely different rims.

I do think you should get both putters in the same stiffness (soft,regular, or firm) because I do notice the release point is different depending on stickiness, so it might be easier to get used to the differences in stability with the disc if you can release them both the same.

And "Stripes" is nfs guys, sorry.

i putt with FLX challengers right now, but they get slippery, and the ESP doesnt really offer a whole lot of durability. how do you think the switch to summits be?

Pretty dope Ridge, Jack... I also agree with getting the same firmness for both. Flexibility plays a large role with Vibram.

In terms of durability, you will loose a Summit before you wear it out, they are very hard to damage.

As far as slickness, some have mentioned a greasiness with the firm rubber, but I have never experienced it with any formula.
I currently throw a Super Firm Ridge here in the rainforest, which is the stiffest rubber, in rain or snow, with mud on the course for most of the year, but I have not experienced any loss of grip at all, even when driving with it.

Also, I'm not a Challenger thrower, but in terms of numbers and flight characteristics, I think the Ridge is a closer match, unless you are looking for a less stable disc.
