I would just like to let it be known that after throwing Dana's protos today at the Illinois State Doubles Championships that they are AWESOME! The grey one was pretty flippy and amazing in tailwinds. It took more left to right room to get a good solid S-curve out of it. The red one held a much tighter line (think Trak-like) and had pretty awesome glide just as advertised. I definitely will be buying a couple of them when they come out.

For reference, I throw with 400+' power.

This.

A few questions to all you vibram fanboys. which of the putters has the best glide for putting purposes? does a lighter weight allow for better glide in the more overstable models like the VP and Ridge or Sole? At what weight would the flight characteristics change, for putting and for driving?

Well the sole will glide better then the ridge or VP. As far as stability goes, I had a 165 that I got a ace on so I retired it in favor of a 175 sole. I couldn't tell the difference in flight between weights really. The 165 may have been a tick less stable, but barley noticeable to me.

I switched from ESP FLX Challengers to Soles since I liked the way they felt better along with the extra grip that X-Link has. I haven't noticed too terribly much difference between the two. I also have a VP that I will use if it is really windy. The Sole definitely has the best glide of the 3 just like pc said. I use all my putters about 170, so I can't speak too well for at what weights these will start to have different flight characteristics.

Soles fly like Wizards and feel like magnets in the hand. They have good glide.

Couldnt have said it better. Im in the same boat as you. Used to use challengers and then got hooked on the X-Link Soles!

which rubber type is best for putting? i don't like super floppy putters. How does the sole stand up to the occasional drive?
