Cheap, easy to throw, versatile, they are great for actually putting, come in many different and nice feeling plastics, they break in like a leather jacket (the more worn the better), and have cool stamps/colors. Also a geographic thing in some areas (Gateway is HUGE in Missouri/Illinois for obvious reasons).

I just recently went back to my Wizards.

Earlier in this tread I mentioned They would always drop for me.That was with my old style of putting.With my new style of putting I've been using,the Wizards is just banging the chains now.

I use:
Mediums for my putts.
Evolution Pro Line(Drives) and I'm going to try out my Old Hard Wizards for driving once again.

Supersoft for upshots.This one has a sweet double stamp on it.

My ancient omega ss is going to spring a leak soon so I got a matched pair of voodoo's, not loving them so much for putting. I don't like the r-pro omega's so I guess I'm lucky to suck so bad at putting that my preference doesn't affect my score.

Hey mods, why was my post in this thread deleted? It contained nothing but true information, an answer to a question.

I guess I'll repost, maybe this time I'll be treated like an American (ya know, that whole freedom of speech thing). All of Gateways putters are designed to be more gyroscopic than their competitors. The flight plate is thinner in the middle and thicker around the rim. Gateway figured out a way to improve on the worlds "best" putter.

The thin flight plate is why you see Gateway putters with "clovering".

And Quest/gateway was the first company to commercially release overmolded discs approved for tournament play.

gateway "magic"....a wizard without the bead
