Default Wizard - plastic and stability

Does the plastic type of a Wizard affect it's stability?
For example, would a firm Wizard be any more wind resistant than a SS Wizard?

I prefer the grip of a SS, but I also play at a windy course

Flight-wise, they are very consistent across the board. The real stiff ones like PW and G9i might be the slightest bit more overstable, but not by a big margin.

This. I might add that a plastic that wears in more quickly will change stability more quickly, so that's an effect to think about. But for the most part, choose the firmness/softness you prefer, and go with it...

For those breezy days, if you don't want to go with premium plastic for more stability, might want to check out the Suregrip driving putters if you don't mind something a bit more shallow. They have all been about SS in flex in baseline and the Chief is just a flat shallow Wizard, and there is the OS version as well, not as beefy as a Zone, but a great short/mid tweener workhorse disc.

The profile of the disc matters more than the actual plastic blend. Even within one plastic you can typically find high shoulder, low shoulder. All wizards are pretty flat but some are super duper board flat. There doesn't seem to be any real consistent trend between plastic and stability in my opinion.

I have picked up a bunch of the Nikko SB wizards this summer and they have a range of stabilities, even though the plastic mostly feels identical. Best bet is to just pick up a few and try them out, if you like one then try to hunt down some matching discs from the same run before they disappear forever.
