You know I'm noticing a remarkable similarity between MVP's line up growth and Vibram's: Putters, Mids, and a fairway driver that couldn't get here fast enough.

Didn't the Ascent come out before the Ibex?

Here's the order:
Summit
VP
Ridge
Ascent
Trak
Ibex
Sole
Obex

I'm pretty sure it was the summit first. I could have this reversed.

I was thinking vp was first since it stands for Vibram Putter.

Vibram invented othermolding technology. That's where the other side of the disc is molded out of different plastic,

Dunno what it is with the neutron putters and flicks but I just sank a 125' fh upshot with my neutron anode. Funny thig is it was on the same hole I sank that long neutron Ion approach except I had flicked a quasar from the long tee.
