I'm going to try and use the ascent to bridge the gap I currently have in Leo's while I break in a new dx. Shoot me a pm and ill send it to you if it doesn't work out for me.

To join in on the Vibram Fairway Drivers being flippy, I actually think my Ascent flips more than my Trak at high speeds. Of course it also fades harder at the end as well.

I normally play at altitude here in Colorado and for the most part they fly as advertised. I played Worlds in Charlotte last year and noticed that my Trak flew on more of an anny line than straight.

There will be differences. I still love most of the Vibram discs. The only one I haven't found a use for is the Sole. But I rather enjoy the unique feel of the other putters so going to something more traditional did not pan out well for me when I tested it.

Yeah I've never much cared for the Sole, not that it's not a good disc. I like how the other three feel in my hand and like that they aren't super glidey (although a seasoned Summit has a very nice glide). So I'm glad there's a more traditional style Vibram putter for those who want it, but what attracts me to the other Vibram putters is the fact that they aren't traditional.

Agreed. Although I do find that my older Summit was less glidy than my newer one while practicing tonight. Odd, probably just a mental thing. But if my putting keeps improving like it has this offseason I smell good things coming. This in spite of one of the local pros around here saying that someone putting with Vibram will never do well. Although his arguement is not too far off since Vibram does not currently have a world champion on their team.

Vibram is more worried about quality of character than quality of play in the people they sponsor. Not that Dana or any of the sponsored Vibram players are bad by any stretch of the imagination! They just also happen to be awesome people!

I can second this! I was lucky enough to be able to play in the illinois state doubles tournament that dana put on last fall and the dude is legit. Very awesome to spend time with and puts on a killer tourney.

Appreciate the kind words!

As for the comment about using Vibram and not doing well, Bradley Williams putted with the Sole last year and won more tournaments in one year than anyone in the history of the sport...

And I'll be doing my best to change the fact that we so don't have a world champ on the team.
