Exactly. The darker colored RFFs are much stiffer than the lighter colored ones.

so you are saying it might get softer/more flexible when it gets a little beat up?

RFF's are weird. I have gotten 5-10 RFF Wizards in the past year and a few were out of the box stiff like an SS Wiz, but a few could be taco'd straight out of the box. Even with the inconsistencies Wizards are the best putters on EARTH!!!!!

i had a pink s wizard that was 172,, so i got a blue s today and it is no where near the flexibility as the other soft... Maybe because the other one was used more?

All discs do.

In the case of Gateway, the classification (S, SS, SSS, RFF) refers not to the flexibility of the disc like every other manufacturer but the material mixtures used to make it. That's why a Wizard marked S can be "medium" firm or "SSS" soft. The true nature of the disc doesn't truly show itself until it's been used a little. My OG SSS started out quite firm with a chalk-esque grip. It's now very rubbery and grippy more like a tire. My G9i started really firm with a slight tack. It's still almost as firm after quite a bit of use with a little more tack.

People shouldn't really be talking about Gateway's putters' feel unless they've actually spent a decent amount of time with them to see how they season. Nothing personal, it just seems like everyone switches putters at the drop of a hat before they even get good.

The RFF runs they had earlier in the summer were a lot more gummy than what they have in stock now.

Like a lot of things with Wizards/Gateway there is variation, for the most part I think this is good because there is a Wizard for everyone. I threw Wizards from 2005 until this past October and some break in and begin to feel softer and some never change. Wizards last forever so when you find a Wizard you like buy a few of them.
