If you don't mind me asking, MrGlass, why don't you want to try a VP? I originally was using the Sole as my in the circle putter when I first started using Vibrams, but the VP's absolute predictability won me over. And even if you don't want to putt with a VP, it is the definition of a perfect approach/ upshot disc; slow, overstable, not much glide which makes it easier to range, and it sits and sticks, especially in medium and extra especially in soft.

However, even if you are completely against trying a VP, all the Vibram putters are amazing discs in the circle, for approaches, and off the tee.
I tried the vp and found it to be way to stable for my putting style. I have the over stable putter slot filled with z zones. I approach with ions and anodes. So only looking for the circle. Not knocking vibram putters at all just settled on MVP.
