Wizards

Having lost my Yeti Pro Aviar a couple weeks ago I thought it was time to try something new. So, I've picked myself up a couple Wizards off the marketplace but am not in possession of them yet. Just wondering what people throwing these think of them in comparison? One is SSS and the other is SS. If you use these let me know what you think. Thanks

Wizards are great putters.. I dont think they "fly" glide wise as well as alot of putters (I spin putt and Use Challengers) but they are AWESOME throwers. Also the plastic varies quite abit.

Wizards are great putters and you will grow to like them the more you putt with them. They are a bit more stable than a Yeti Pro Aviar.

I've thrown the Yeti Pro Aviar before and I feel a better comparison would be to a Voodoo. The Voodoo has a smaller bead.

Going back to the Wizard,once your Wizards are broke in real good they will have that flight that the Yeti Pro Aviar had.

I think you've found your main putter! Give it at least two weeks of solid practice and I think you'll really dig them - they are solid stable putters and great discs for controlled drives off the teepad as well. Keep us updated on the progress...

And if you don't like them, make sure to trade them to me!

Despite being big bead like the Wizard, I've always thought the Yeti was more like a Voodoo than a Wizard.

I think I'll love them once I get used to them. Plus, I just loved the beautiful stamp on this Wizard. it's the one on the left side.

They will be great for powerful drives right now. Once you putt with them 500 times they will fly so straight and nice for putts, upshots, and 200ft drives. If you like the feel in hand stick with them you will like them a lot once you get to know them.

I don't really understand the concept of "soft" putters since I've never thrown one. What do they feel like? Are they flexible like Discraft's FLX?

Gateway's "Soft" classification is different than everybody else. There's refers to material blend whereas everyone else refers to firmness. That leads to all the "inconsistent" talk about them. If you like one of the Wizards you've gotten and want to continue with them, I would contact Gateway directly, explain to them exactly what you want, and buy 10 of them.

As you use your Wizards, they'll soften and really start showing their true selves. I've had SSS Wizards that are firmer when new than my Softs. As I used the SSS, it started softening and truly started "feeling" like a SSS.
