Putter driving
 
I can drive a buzz off the tee pad clean, but am struggling to keep my wizards from flipping on me. For those of you that drive putters, any advice would be appreciated.

A Wizard shouldn't flip. It might be your grip, and OAT. I had the same problem when trying to drive with my Ions, which are just like Wizards. I did some field work, and slowed things down, concentrating on throwing clean, and smooth. The power grip didn't feel right at first, and it was affecting my putter drives. Once I was able to get used to the grip, and smooth the throw, my putter drives have greatly improved.

How beat are your Wizards?! Because of its speed, a Buzzz will tolerate more form flaws than the Wizard. Are you sure you're getting good throws with the Wizard?

I drive buzz's on a rope, should I expect the same from the Wiz, or air it out more?

You'll get more distance if you air it out a little. You'll also see a decent fade when it slows down.

mmm..... driving wizards. they should fly dead nuts straight, with a very mild fade, or hold a nice hyzer all the way to the ground. so perfect.

just slow it down. try throwing into a headwind. it'll drive you nuts, but the payoff is huge.

Smooth is far, especially with putters.

GLong 02-10-2013 08:59 AM

how far are you throwing the buzz? what grip are you using? same for both?

You may be rolling your wrist, you need a very clean release especially when throwing these hard. I can throw them as hard as my drivers now with a 3 or 4 finger power grip without flipping them, it took some practice but it works (does not apply in a headwind though)

For me the biggest problem I had driving with putters was my, grip, I always used a power grip and got really bad OAT, then I switched to a fan grip and it was nearly eliminated. Although wizards seemed to give me a lot of OAT still, so I switched TO KC aviars because the rounded inner edge gave me less OAT. I have puny hands though.
