I've been throwing the VP. Came in handy over the weekend with 25-35mi winds. It is a really good windy putter. Didn't even think about flipping. It is probably the most overstable putter out there, and I do love the plastic. I believe they've been tweaking the plastic/rubber, I think I have a slightly tweaked kind. Great for this cold weather and when it gets wet. We'll wait and see how the summer heat treats them. Pretty cool to see the quote from Aaron, a good friend and Team Maple Hill member, on a website in Sweden.

The vp is one of the most overstable putters i've ever tried. I havent thrown mine much (Aaron gave me a few at our last team challenge) but i like the way the plastic feels, and they are a sweet Team Tolland Red. You can really crank on them without them turning. I haven't tried putting with them. I like the way the summit sounds (beadless version of the vp??)

Basically a beadless VP. COMPLETELY different discs tho. More shallow, more understable, similar to an XD.

Do you know when the summits will be sent out? Steve said I should have the VPs in about 2 weeks and they're just sending those out first.
