Looking at inbounds chart, no fade means no fade?

I'd love that in a putter in the long run methinks.

Yep I would very much recommend starting with a Summit. It's so versatile! You won't be disappointed.

I putt with Summits and have begun throwing them more for up shots as well. At slow speeds the things are just so stinking straight itis ridiculous. Put a little power behind it and it is the best looking turnover shot you have ever seen.

Yep, no natural fade in its flight really.

The only time a Summit is gonna go left (RHBH), is if you put it on a hyzer and really back off the power.

Anyone throw one of the '12 VO Black/Reds? I've got one in and out of the bag and it seems to have more stability. I love watching that thing fly. It pairs up nicely with my broken in M.

As for the next disc, I'd like to see an overstable Lace or a Firebird type disc.
I have been throwing'12 VO Black/Red Ridge. It seems a bit more stable to me as well. Looks awesome flying too!! Also really liked the Player's Cup stamp! Decided to try a Ibex, I liked it so much picked up a Obex also. http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...p?albumid=2481

Agreed. I don't putt much with mine, but it's great as an approach disc!

The summit is my number 1 putter unless there's a strong headwind. That's when I reach for my Ridge.

Those are beautiful discs, Ferguson!

I use a 170F Summit and a 173S Ibex for my P&A (I've also got a 157M Summit for upshots). The Summit has such a predictable flight, straight when powered down and slow run L to R when thrown with power. Lately been finishing most every hole with the S Ibex since I'm so used to the feel and flight of the Ibex it's just become a no-brainer for me....literally I don't even think about I just do it.

Also drive with the Summit occasionally as well. Iíve now turned two of my DG friends onto them. And yes, I have to answer seemingly endless questions about the disc when I let one go that slowly runs L to R without coming back at all.

Iíll say it again, send me an Ubex (or whatever you decide to call it) and Iíll be a very happy man!
