Vibram Birdie Bash: this year is a test year (yes, we test everything!) if all goes well, we will offer this as a event to TDs next year.

My putting was better in Minnesota. I picked a 173 Firm Ridge at both events and loved it. My VP is now only used for windy putts and upshots that cannot afford to turn. I also got my second Ibex ace in Winona, MN at the Pipe Dream Toys Vibram Birdie Mini. We played a nine hole version of the course twice. The first time around, on the fifth or sixth hole, I said to my group on a nice anny hole, "now I can show you why I love the Ibex". I parked it. The next time around, I aced it. Nice day! :-)

And I highly recommend Rocco's pizza to any and all.
I hope you do send it out for TDs to do. That was a great event, one I would like to run. Plus, I think the 25 dollar price point was just perfect being that it is the same price as Discraft's tournament.

Thanks for coming to MN Steve I'm glad I played the birdie bash. The Ibex and Sole have already found their way into my bag, and I now drive with the sole on most shorter holes. I even went out and purchased a backup already. Great event, and by far my favorite Thursday event I have ever played in ever.

I don't want to search this thread all day, so here we go.

Does Vibram have a good low profile putter? Something Classic Roc feeling.

Summit

Get it firm if you want it somewhat similar to a Classic Roc.

I want slightly soft, not R-pro soft but slightly softer than dx, so medium? I've never seen a vibram disc.

You won't regret grabbing a summit. Incredibly workable. Great low profile.
