I used to drive with the Summit, but I've always found the Ridge to be the best all-around (including driving putter). I've had good luck with 166-168 Summits for putting duties, but I'd imagine that a heavier Summit would be a more no nonsense driving putter. I use quite a bit of hyzer-angle when driving with the Summit... kind of reminds of my earlier days when I used an eclipse Tangent for shorter shots.

The Summit is a pretty good option for approaching the basket, along with the VP. I'd recommend the Summit in tailwinds, and the VP in headwinds for approaches. That's a very consistent one-two punch, and it'll cover you whenever you don't want to use a mid-range to approach the basket.

The ridge seems nice but that rim depth would kill me.

It's extremely flat. Not really deep. Edge is squared off so it fits your hand really well.

Max. Summits are quite understable under any real driving power. Neutral at short approach distance.

It's not that bad. My friend who has notoriously small hands used one for a while. What got to him was the lack of glide. The Ridge/VP suffer for not having the same glide as the Judge or Summit at slower speeds, but that makes them good driving putters. The VP isn't as good a driving putter as the Ridge, because of the lack of glide, but it holds a really straight, predictable line under a range of conditions. The Ridge has nice glide when driven.

How would a 150 gram summit fly?

Would it be fun, or no?
