Sole or Ridge, although I'm toying around with the Summit. I like how it kinda pops up and goes straight.

I throw Vibram putters every round I play. I like them all and use them when I want differing flights. The best thing about them is their unbelievable durability.

If I was going to "try one out", it would be the Ridge. It's the most versatile, being that it's "stable". You can do just about anything with it.

That said, for low speed approaches I like the Summit because it stays so straight when powered down and lands flat.

I prefer the VP when I have to "put something on it" or want to get around that tree.

Like any other disc, you'll either really like it or not care for it at all. I like them because I don't have to go out and buy a new one every time I drive one hard into a tree... and they're so predictable (which to me... is the point of a putter).

Well, I went with a Sole because it looked awesome. I was VERY happy with it on its first outing. It felt more like a mid than a putter in my hand, and i even made a decent birdie with it.

So much fun trying out new kit.

I typically putt with a VP. I was originally trying out a Ridge and Sole for putting, but my home course is extremely windy and I putt like you do, so I love the VP's predictability. However, for long putts on non windy days, or with a tailwind, the Summit is awesome. And the VP, Ridge, and Summit are, in my opinion, the best driving putters on the market.

Cfair, what are your complaints about Vibram discs? Is it just that the logo bothers you? Or is there something performance related?

I carry a Sole and Summit, though lately I've been only using the soft Ibex for P&A. Sole and Summit both mainly see driving duty. Sole has been a great driving putter and everyone is always amazed when I tee-off with a Summit and I get the slow L to R run on the flight. I use them both for other assorted shots, but I can't shake the soft Ibex for 90% of my P&A. It's just so reliable and predictable in it's flight path. And the thing stops on a dime for the long approaches.

Here's a quick generalization that I'm sure some people will disagree with. I like all the Vibram putters for different reasons although I haven't thrown a Sole much. Here are the putters I would compare them to:

Sole- Aviar

Ridge- Wizard

Summit- Magic

V.P. - Kinda like a slower Zone or Pig

Like I said, I'm sure some people will disagree with me but maybe that will give you a good idea where to start when picking a Vibram putter if you are familiar with those other molds. Also, go to http://flightanalyzer.com/ to get a decent comparison of flight paths for a lot of discs.

^ I like that flight analyzer, pretty cool little widget thingy.

I can't comment on how they compare to other putters, I'm rolling with an all Vibram bag.
