When I got my hpp wizard I felt like harry potter grabbing his wand for the first time. Just felt right.

The Wizard is so well liked because it's a slight improvement over what was the best putter out there (BB Aviar) before it came out and it comes in as good, if not better plastic.

Plus you can get it in about any choice of firmness/softness or flexibility if you try/look hard enough.

I throw only discraft i picked up a magic and a wizard and wasnt impressed. Then again who am I. Ive just been noticing threads of like LOAD and LOADs of them.

It's a conundrum for me too. I got one recently, and the plastic feels so much nicer than DX. Unfortunately I've gotten used to putters without beads (I like the standard Aviar P&A), so I'm not sure of them thus far despite the praise they receive here.

Putt with what works for you, it's mostly mental from up close anyway............

I've been putting with dx aviars since I started. I buy plastic online because there's no shop close to me. The aviar has worked fine for me and I figure if I stink at putting it's probably more me than the disc. I drive with a star bb aviar and that works fine for me also.

I will say that a guy on my card at leagues putts with them and I was checking out his wizards and the plastic feels awesome. If I wanted to switch and try another putter mold I'd have to give gateway a shot.

The only thing that concerns me about the wizards is this

Without having a store nearby that sells them I don't know what my odds are like finding another one that felt the same as the other one I was checking out. Maybe one day I'll give them a go.

Sadly I kind of agree, except mine was an Eraser and and now an Ultra flexy RFF. I have tried every putter on the market, and the Wizard is just the best feeling disc I have ever held. Granted Gateway can be a little inconsistent as far as weight and flexibility, get a few different ones and find the one that feels right and hold on to it tight and use it over and over to break it in. Then you will have a putter for life!!!!
