I would rather slam on a Wizard to get it going and still not worry about turning it over, than trying to finesse a floaty putter even if the latter could be done with much less force. The repeatability is in the former, for me. Also, I feel like the Wizard has surprisingly little lateral movement during fade, for a putter that stable. I can see it slowing down and tilting to the side, but it doesnt get too far off the line nevertheless.
Most Wizards I have to add the snap to my regular putt making it 50/50 of a push putt and spin putt, unlike my regular no major wind push putt up to 15-20 feet. After that I add spin as well as push back foot off ground higher and higher after about 20-25 feet on up. I would only add the push too the putt if using a Wizard, as I would do a 50/50 of a push putt and spin putt with the Wizard.

Au contraire, mon frθre. I learned to hate glidey putters while throwing 86 Softies years ago. I loves me a glideless "goes as far as you throw it" putter. Unfortunately for me, if I throw a "goes as far as you throw it" putter now, it's going to go maybe 15'.

How are eraser wizards? Considering ordering one online but have no idea what to expect. Are they super flexible? Smooth? Chalky? It’s going to be used for upshots and drives mostly.

Erasers are a touch more rubbery in feel with SS-SSS flex. They are my go to putting putters. Imo they tend to be a touch US compared to other wizards (a teeny, tiny touch).

Ive found some preeeetty gooshdarn stiff erasers too. Like soft stiff almost (lol what oxymoron). Yet with that unprecedented grip. (like, in pouring rain, dont bother to try and dry any discs, just grab the dripping wet eraser and throw). I dont think I will ever buy a Wizard blindly again. Feel it up or at least talk to the person who can feel it for you.

I agree that eraser wizards seem to have the best grip. Like Flick said, I don’t even bother drying them off before throwing or putting, unless they have a bunch of snow under the rim. I recently got a Nikko prototype on eraser and it was slightly rubbery, about SS flex. I also called the Gateway store yesterday to ask about a couple more erasers, and was told one was SS while the other was more like SSS, both with a chalky feel, which is usually how I describe mine. Definitely give them a call and tell them what you’re looking for, if you’re particular about your putters.

^this^ I have made a few purchases and talked with either Com or Mason and they always have taken care of me. I love the PWs most consistent among their plastics IME.

The eraser ones are great. I also like organic. The ones I have are almost as grippy as eraser, but they are a tad bit softer. Obviously it all depends on the run, but that has been my experience. Both are good in the cold, but I would say erasers do a bit better if they get wet.
