How does the VP compare to other overstable putters, like the Pig/Sinus/Zone?

I mean the flight path, not how it feels in the hand.

I did look on the Inflight guide, and it was a little less stable for them. But I want to read what other people have to say.

i wouldn't mind picking a few up.
My overstable Ascents are 175 and 174 g and seem to have a little more dome than my other two. Other than that, they're pretty darn similar, even in PLH. I can't visually confirm it, more of a feel thing, but the lip on the wing of the OS seems to be a bit more pronounced.

VP is right around Zone/Pig overstability, I don't have enough experience with those two to really give you an in depth analysis. But the VP is plenty overstable.

I agree. When I bought some Laces, I got 3 weights, 161, 167, 173. The 167 is the primary driver in my bag. I use the 173 if I'm dealing with headwind or want a little more of a fade at the end. The 161 is more for uphill shots or downwind shots.

Right back at you!

Although I do have to say that I understand players with bigger arms needing a massively overstable fairway or more overstable distance driver. However, my max weight Ascents get the job done for my noodle arm, except in really stiff headwinds (so I will definitely add the MOSFW to my bag). And I love understable discs, so I'll add anything US that comes out.

Now we've just got to figure out the order.
Lame. Make a lid instead.
