A couple other questions.
1. Will Vibram be selling discs at the AM Worlds? (I am going to be at some of the events and totally want to pick up some stuff. I'm hoping buying them at an event would be cheaper than ordering them)
2. How could someone get involved in helping test if you do a mid-range or driver? (I'd be willing to send stuff back, I would just like to be involved in the process)
3. Any possibility for a hand out? (I'm not trying to hide looking for a freebie in the other parts of my post)

PM me if you would prefer.

(P.S. the putters I want to try out are the JK Aviar, MVP Ion, and the 3 Vibram putters)
I would recommend starting with an X-Link Ridge. This is the inbetween disc in our putt and approach arsenal. It will be a tad more overstable than your Aviar and is comparable to a JK Aviar in flight. By picking Vibram's inbetween disc, you will be able to tell which, if any, of the other Vibram discs you would want to give a try.

1. We won't be selling at AM Worlds, but we will have games and prizes at our FlyMart booth (and we'll be doing a Vibram Clinic & Durability Demo at 6:00 on Monday right before the Player's Meeting) so it will be worth stopping by (plus you get to meet me! :-D). I think Sun King Discs will be there selling Vibram discs and I know that the AM Worlds vendor, Disc Golf Mart, will have some Vibram discs to sell.

2. There is a chance that becoming a Vibram Tester will be some of the prizes that we raffle off at our flymart booth and/or at the Monday Vibram Clinic.

3. I tend to not give away discs unless there is a compelling reason.

In my opinion, this is a good sign, and a good reason to give the Vibram discs a try. If you end up not liking them (which apparently does not happen much ), there seems to be plenty of folks looking for them in trade.

We will be at Am Worlds in force! Stop by any of these locations and give us a shout out.

Monday at 6:00 PM, an hour before the player’s meeting, we will hold a Vibram Putting Clinic and Durability Demo. Basically, we go over the Vibram discs and materials, giving folks a chance to see and grip each of them. We also go over some putting tips that have worked for us. And lastly, we attempt to destroy some discs. Yes, we will be bashing them into rocks and roads, and we need your help! :-D

Tuesday at 7:00 PM, we will be at the Flymart showing off the discs and running putting games with prizes. All women and Jr competitors can stop by the booth and pick-up a free Vibram mini.

Try your hand at putting with the Vibram discs in each of the X-Link materials. Prizes, raffles and fun are sure to be had.

Possible prizes? Vibram Tester Team spots, Way Cool Custom discs (see http://vibramdiscgolf.posterous.com/...est-discs-ever), X-Link Soft discs, and more. You’ll have to stop by and see.

1. Awesome tip, the Ridge sounds about what I'd like anyway.
2. I will totally be at AM Worlds (maybe helping) if not certainly stopping by.
3. I'll be sure to introduce myself.
4. I totally understand not giving away free stuff.
5. Totally pumped for AM Worlds.

6 am or pm? I am assuming, and hoping, pm

Ratings

Just got my Summit and noticed the ratings system. Very different than any other brand. Exactly how am I supposed to know how fast in miles per hour I am throwing?

I play with Chris Deitzel a lot and I am really tempted to buy some of his discs that he is selling. My main putter is an Organic Wizard, he says the ridge is a wizard clone, is this right? Secondly I like my putters to be firm but also a little soft

I threw my new Ridge a few times head to head with a seasoned Organic Wizard and fresher Evo Wizard. I only got about 10 BH tosses in with it but it feels like a lightly seasoned wizard with a little less glide. Throwing it about 280-300 feet it held a very straight line with a little fade at the end.

Throw a Summit, do you turn it over? If so, >40mph
Throw a Ridge, do you turn it over? If so, >52mph
Throw a VP, do you turn it over? If so, stop taking steroids.
