Default Vibram V.P. Putter does anyone have one?

I'm interested in the Vibram V.P. putter and was wondering if anyone has one. If so, do you like it? How does it compare to say an Aviar Putt and approach?

I think the VP is similar to a Wizard...and that's pretty much their intent.

I've heard a lot of good things about them but I had a buddy that used one this winter for a day and it was still wet a week later after 2 days on a heater....eep...

Ask DiscJon...it was his VP that got waterlogged somehow...I never really used mine. I thought it was going to be SUPER SOFT...but it wasn't at all. And it seemed like a REALLY COOL disc...but it wasn't what I was looking for so I traded it off.

The VP is way more overstable than a wizard, it's more like a pig. The Vibram Ridge is their wizard clone.

Yes, I would say the same. I love the VP because you can huck it real hard and it's not going to turn over (at least for me). If you're looking for a very overstable putter then I can't say enough good things about it. Mine is X-Link (Med) and 175g. It is a wonderful disc.

The Ridge is in testing now (I've got one) and it's much more understable.
A VP would not be a good replacement for an Aviar P&A which is what I use for putting.

I have not thrown a Vibram Summit but that is supposed to be much more to the right of the over/understability chart.

That Vibram rubber/plasitc is the best thing I've ever put in my hand.
I hope this helps.

The only Vibram disc I can find info on is the VP. I haven't heard of the Ridge or the Summit. Is the Ridge similar to the Aviar. I think I would like something similar to the Aviar in thier rubber material.

You see this post I'm making right now. Well count three up from it and you learn more about the ridge.

I've been a Vibram Tester for about a year now.

The VP is my main putt and approach. The pig comparison is good, but it won't beat in. The ridge is like a wizard/aviar x. The summit is flippy like an XD.

Physically the Ridge has a bead so I wouldn't say it feels like an Aviar. Word on the street is most people got 167-169 Ridges as I did. I think it lob putts similar to a 175g DX Aviar but I think it's just the weight difference.
