Terrible disc. Will not hesitate to roll away from the basket as far as it can. Even softs roll away. Send these unwanted, godawful medium Summits (172 or higher) to me for proper disposal.

I picked the Summit as my putter in the Birdie Bash last March, and was won over instantly by the way it feels in the hand; I love the shallow rim.

It literally took me all spring and summer to dial it in, but I am starting to make some pretty sweet putts with it now.

bought a couple summits in my recent putter shakeup.

yes. the perfect finesse approach disc and long putter. it saved me at least 3 strokes today, hitting tricky lines none of my other discs could have at short range. i struggle to throw good finesse anny lines with stable discs and this thing just gives me the extra little help i need at short distances when i need it to turn over and weave through things. also now that i've developed a good strong putt, these things are little basket seekers from pretty damn far away.

New discovery for me and loving it ... I never liked driving with putters but this thing is a Very drivable putter and workable. I get slight right tracking on average 250 ft pull. It's not floppy, but wonderfully under stable . Rim is shallow enough to release cleanly, yet feel like a putter when putting. Holds an effortless anny line when you want it. It also releases super clean when putting. Got a 300 ft down wind drive with it today, but flawless at around 250 in calm conditions for me. Never thought I would be using a putter off the tee.......but I am now!. Pegged the bogie bell (metal ring at top of basket that usually means a bogie if I ring it whit a putter) from 150 on first day in the bag. Won't be long before it gets chains.

Yes, this is a great putter! I can drive with it nicely off-the-tee. I want to dial-in some of my lighter Summits for rollers, but I need more practice. Also, need more practice shaping lines with this.

That is all I came for, and I am disappointed. Is Johnny still around sometimes?

I did try few fh rollers yesterday. It rolls decent and does try to lay down on its top too quickly. My summit is firm. A medium or soft, in warm weather , is too soft and it's looses too much energy on impact with Mother Earth. My firm in 166 has a lot more glide than 173 medium. At 70 degrees, the medium got too soft for my lob style of putting.

Took me a little while to get the hang of rollers with the unlace though too.

In Minnesota, there's only 2 months of the year hot enough to make X-Link softer, so seldom do I have that problem.

I can use the Summit for lob putting, but I use it mostly for approaches. With more practice, I will hopefully be able to shape lines with it, with my throw style of putting.

I have one I was going to donate to your cause, but you didn't let me know you were playing DG 2 miles from my house. So now, after all this love, maybe I'll just use the disc instead.
