This is Dave M. from February 2005, it's amazing what kind of stuff gets stuck in my brain. I was off by a coouple years

most medium Wizards become much softer after playing and never get the thumb marks.
I know we had trouble making super soft without the dimples.
We've retooled the wizard flightplate about .005 thicker.
(Its still the thinnest of any putter out there by over .010)
The change is almost unnoticable by the eye or feel.
We ran some supersofts and friday and I put one to the test to see how well it wears in.
Results were pretty good for super soft.
I think the dips in the top will be a thing of the past.
Now the problem will be, players asking for the ones " with the dimples"

I would like to see that, from what Gateway told me, there has been no mold changes since some initial tweaks when they first originally released it.

Thumbs up Thanks

Worldwide , the stack will be smaller after I roll thru next Friday ! Was going to throw Burnaby , but I'll visit Abbie's and play those courses . Didn't notice Gateway when I was there last year .

Dan , im saving ur email and I'll send u a line once I've confirmed my tastes .

I was hoping to help out Discoutfitters clear out their inventory but I'm glad you guys spoke to me , thanks again !

On a side note , I was hoping to put up the disc golf video game poster in my local shop but I found out its closing at the end of the month

Yeah , but I get my stuff shipped to Point Roberts and drive 2 blocks into the states to pick up . I only pay the provincial sales tax then . I bought a 4 bike rack for $635 and picked it up when the local shops wanted $1250 for the same one !

Rff should be really soft considering SSS putters are pretty squishy. Back when I first started throwing Wizards I ordered a couple mediums and a couple firms, the mediums were the stiffest plastic I have ever felt so you can imagine what the firms were like.
What sucks about Gateway putters is you have to buy in person or buy them from a person that can feel them for you and accurately convey to you what they feel like.

Don't worry my friend, the RFF gets very flexible after a few wooded rounds, like a pancake!
