Default Vibram question

Hi, I constantly try new (to me) discs and fairly recently have picked up a Vibram Summit firm and a Vibram Sole Medium. I don't see too much conversation recently about Vibram discs on the forum. Just wondering, are they commonly used these days?

Not as popular as other brands but lots of discussion here.

Summit always has been a fun putter to me. Very US but workable.

I love the Lace, O-Lace, and UnLace. Great combo of discs that feel similar for consistency, but allow different stabilities. The Ibex is a serviceable mid. I also like the summit, but recently switched away from it as my go to.

They have some good discs but have been incredibly slow to fill out their lineup. The lack of Speed 9-11 discs is a glaring weakness. Hopefully that will change under new leadership.

Thanks for the replies. I have a weakness for wanting to try out different putters, thus the purchase of the Summit and Sole. I actually think that I like the Sole better than the Summit, but wish I had bought it in the firm rubber rather than the medium. For serious play I usually always fall back to my Kc-Pro Aviar, but I just like to have other molds of putters for fun.

I got a Ridge as a part of a lot buy, and started throwing it for fun. Ridge and Summit are now my go to approach putters. I throw Firms in the summer and Mediums in the winter. Great grip and indestructible.

I then branched out to the unLace and Lace. The Lace is my primary driver - and mostly because it's indestructible and I play mostly wooded courses.

If you get into them, vibram does great black friday/cyber monday deals (had to replace my back-up lace - threw it in a pond )

Soft summit is a great hit and stick and a super sweet as a catch disc. Super finicky thrower for in med and firm imho.

I keep ridges if I decide to go back to using them for approach and driving.

Soles are great and always have a practice bag spot. Likely back on the course with cold weather.

VP solid too. any big bead aviar-wiz fan should try one out.

Mids and drivers I haven't spent much play with. underwhelmed by Obex and Ibex and my driver grip likes plastic.

Once they get their rest of their mids out It will be a good line up.
One thing I noticed when switching to vibram is that speed 7 is plenty enough.
Personally I hope they keep their lineup simple.
