This will allow you to have a mid & putter combo for your Birdie Bash. Perfect for short courses.

Very nice to see that Vibram is listening to the concerns of the players and making appropriate changes.

Yay!
firm ibex
firm sole

I'd be comfortable playing a long or short course config with that.

Obex & Ridge for me (Ridge it the only Vibram putter I don't normally carry, so I thought I'd give it a shot). I'm really glad so many people wrote to Vibram and that they listened.

Cool to hear they changed their mind. It would depend on the course for me but it would be
Ibex/Ridge for a shorter course
OR
O Lace/Sole

Last year I went Trak/Sole and was very happy with my choice.

BTW i also got this reply this afternoon

We have expanded the driver selection to include the mids, which are much easier to control and fly almost as far as the fairways, has been done. This should be a better fit for your events. Thanks for bringing up your concern.
Sincerely,

Steven Dodge

I was going to go Solace and VP, but now that they are allowing mids, I'll be going Obex and VP.

I just registed. went with IBEX and VP The putter choice was tough for me. i initially considered the summit because i dont care any truly understable putter/approach discs and it could fill a gap if i liked it, but i was concerned it would hurt me in the round putting with it, so i went with vp
