They have an understable putter, the Summit, in testing phases now. There is at least one more disc in the works, but its not a definite right now so I don't think I should say. I'm sure there will be more discs in the future.

I'm just going to bump this thread because I'd like to hear more about them. Does vibram plan to make anything besides putters or are they just gonna specialize for awhile?

Biscoe, what was it about the plastic you didn't like?

Yup and I really like the summits. Its an understable disc. Its faser than the VP, but that's because it doesn't have the huge bead. Its a good compliment because the VPs take as long as CE to break in.

And the word I heard through the grapevine, is the next disc will be a neutral putter between the summit and VP. I've also heard the will branch out to mids and what not, but it will be a bit.

other than the super floppy vp's (which at this point vegan ray owns all of) i find it too slick for the stiffness. the huge bead is also somewhat uncomfortable in my hand. (not a beaded putter guy)

the summit feels better but is too flippy to be useful to me.

they have a long way to go before they move too many aviars or challengers or wizards out of people's bags imo.

oh man that sounds awesome, i'm excited to see/hear more about the new putter their coming with, and i'm guessing the plastic is great because they do make souls for shoes etc.
