Anyone been to a Vibram Birdie Event?
Worth attending?
I haven't ever thrown any vibram discs, what should I expect?

So does anybody keep a sole and a ridge in the bag? I've rocked the vp/ridge/summit trio for a long time and just can't seem to find a spot for the sole.

Also, the soft trek is awesome. I wish softs weren't so rare.

I bought a Sole. It's a good putter, but I carry the same trio that you do. With the three of them in your bag, you have the putt/approach bases covered.

When I take the Sole, it's usually to wooded courses where it gets to be the star of the bag. Only the VP comes along with it.

The Ridge is my main putter. The one I've thrown since they released them has been used for hundreds of rounds. It still flies like my newish ones do. I have 7. The only one that's a touch different is my much lighter (162) one that's also the only one in X-Link Firm.

I like the Vibrams because they are dead, the VP and Ridge are exactly what I want in putt and approach discs.

The Sole came out only because people bitched about how glideless the Vibram putters were.

A Vibram for the lemmings.


I'm not a lemming.

I just don't see how Vibram has contracted this reputation of "no glide" discs. Sure, their glide is low in general... but I mean have you ever thrown a Wolf? There are less glidey discs out there.

Also, since when was being "glideless" a bad thing? I am far more accurate with less glidey discs. Been throwing my Ascent more and more because I TRUST where it is going to go. I don't have to worry about it gliding into oblivion like a River or something.
