Soft Magnets vary a bit, older ones (4 chain stamp) are more floppy. If you like 'em sorta floppy, try a RFF wizard.

btw gateway putters are best felt before buying, you never know what you're gonna get. Or, order online from a shop that can give you a hand over the phone with the feel.

The new RFF blend are very flexible with a nice rubbery grip but hold their shape well, might be what you're looking for and there aren't a bunch of runs out yet so they're all pretty similar so far.

Wizards, regardless of feel, usually have a very stiff rim. Matching the feel of a Soft Magnet on the filghtplate should be easy. Finding a Wizard that has a flexible rim could prove a little more difficult. Mashnut is right about the RFF being the best place to start, but even they vary in firmness by color. I'm not sure which color is softer than the others in that regard, but I believe maansmit is the one who could answer that question. I know he's had several different colors.

OP -- how many chains are on the stamp of your soft magnet? 3 or 4?

The old Soft Magnets (4 chains) ARE very floppy compared to the new ones.

I got an RFF wizard and it's still not that soft... maybe try a SSSS Wizard? Like others have said, it's best to hand-pick one from a store instead of buying online if you're really concerned about the feel.

I use a soft Ibex for P/A. For my style of play I find it has a bit more glide than the Sole.

Any of the soft Vibrams are great though.

I just recently got a Soft Sole myself and I am loving it. I will, second this opinion.

Get a dark green OG Wizard, much softer than the lighter ones.
