Thanks to Brodysseus, I finally got my hands on some medium Vibrams. They feel much better than my firm Ibex and Summit. Can't wait to try the Ridge and Sole. Looking forward to it.

Just threw a vp and ridge for the 1st time today. Great for driving still have to learn them. Ridge is a different putter. Thrown hard it holds hyzer, anhyzer, or dead straight with a fade. Vp is definitely the most over stable putter I've ever thrown

How'd it drive? I've been trying to figure out which putter to choose for the Vibram Birdie Bash, and have been contemplating the VP. I'd love to find a more OS complement to my Voodoo.

VP and ridge are both good driving putters from 250' and under.. over that they are pretty hard to get past 300 on a flat line when brand new and both will fade when thrown flat but the VP handles wind and fights anhyzer releases a little more where the ridge tends to hold the lines. Not the fastest discs though and both beaded. VP is not super over-stable IMO more like ION, champ aviars but less distance.

they are very HSS not super over stable flying if that makes sense...

I wish Vibram would just announce if their next disc will be the pred/firebird/xxx style disc. My poor old Tsunami needs a break soon and I'd really like to buy a Vibram disc for that slot, but if they don't at least let me know it's coming soon, I'm gonna have to pick up one of the other three instead.

Makes sense to me - much appreciated! Very HSS sounds just like what I want. Might even be able to take the place of my OS P&A duties, too.
