Default Sole vs Summit

Which one is better for putting Sole or Summit? Is the glide pretty noticeable between the two?

Depends how you like to putt. Sole starts pretty overstable. It'll EVENTUALLY work into a straight flier with some really good glide. Summit is out-of-the-box understable. It is dyeing to turn over from the minute it leaves your hand. From inside 20 feet you ought not see much difference, so if your talking about a circle putter, pick whichever feels better in you hand - flat topped Summit or more traditionally shouldered Sole.

For a spin putter. What about outside the circle?

Summit is awesome if you like a shallow putter.

Love me some soft summit.
1. Best grip ever
2. Minimal low speed fade so you can go straight for center chains
3. Love the shallow grip - YMMV
4. Hits and flops - minimizes roll aways
5. Great for turnover approaches that finish right.

Love this putter.

If you're looking for a driving putter you can rip on this is not the disc but does 1-5 with finesse extremely well. My 2 cents...

Summit is a great spin putter and great turnover/ hyzer flip drive putter, and approach out to 200' . Sole is great wind putter, and hyzer approach shots.

I'd try to figure out what style of putting you are first:

1) Push-putting
2) Spin-putting

Spin-putters will use the Summit, Ridge, and VP. Push-putters will use the Sole.

Pretty much this. I've not thrown a sole but I love my summit. Being so US keeps it straight for true putts. Excellent for turnover approaches or holding big anny approaches. And....I LOVE flat & shallow discs.
