Want to replace my upshot putter (Wizard)

I use a Wizard for upshots, but would like a more traditional plastic for my upshot disc. I was thinking maybe a PA2 or PA3 or an envy.. any ideas? would like to stay with something near the same stability as my Wizard, but looking for a change thanks.

**oh, and I putt with the new Mcpro.. but the disc seems too deep to throw comfortably as a driving/upshot putter. So I need something without a deep rim

Envy has become a very, very popular disc. I use the ion (deeper feeling wizard clone) and proxy (beadles envy) -- so many great putters out there. Is a bead something you want like with the wizard? just straight with fade that is a little more durable?

You're going to get a boadload of suggestions, mostly what people personally throw which is cool. I switched from the wizard to a neutron ion which may be a tick more understable than a wiz, but not much. It's been money for me and durable as heck. With putters, I think you need to go to a shop and paw them to know what you are going to be comfortable with.

I still use Wizards for putting, and was throwing an Evo Wizard for a while- ended up with an Opto Pure and a Scale. Opto pure will fly however you shape it, and the Scale is great for OS duties and wind.

I have been using a Ridge quite a bit recently. It is very comfy in my hands, low profile, low glide, straight with fade, and durable. Vibram putters hit and stick which is another bonus.

Can you unpack this a little more, Wizard is about as traditional as it gets.

I thought he was making a distinction between the mold itself and the plastic blend. I moved away from the wizard, and one of the reasons was the sheer amount and variations of the plastics that Gateway uses. It can get confusing, especially when ordering online as many people do if they don't have a shop close by. I'm pretty sure if I ordered another Ion online in neutron, I'd know almost exactly what I was getting for example.
