Bad Wizards are just ones you haven't figured out the proper use for yet.

So a short while back I bought a 5 pack of misprint PW wizards. Upon inspection I noticed they were mistrimmed (knick in the bead) which is why I got them so cheap. I didnt care much, they feel great.

Today I finally decided it was time to rotate a fresh one in and grabbed one of my misprints. Well it's flippy. I mean my 2009 am world's clovered soft Wizard flys similarly. It's actually a useful flight and I may end up using them as my putting putters. I noticed they feel flatter which I like for putting.

My question. This is not typical of PW wizards correct, just my flat double stamped mistrimmed? I need to find some stock PWs to throw, they are a great throwing stability. Is there another current run that is stiff and stable/over-stable?

My three felt overstable in the hand, high shoulder, flat top. They were all lighter than marked and wore in super fast. They rip out the hand and go far. Not what I expected but good discs. Big wizard holding an orb for a stamp iirc.

Fossil Wizards

Theyre not quite as firm as PWP but they're better in most every other aspect. They're gritty, tight shouldered & just fantastic Wizards.

Wanted to get a hold of some fossil lizards, scales and gilas but then I remembered I’m no millionaire and they’re nowhere to be found in Europe :’(

My full color Mike Barnard platinum wiz is by far the most overstable. Great for stable upshots.

Fossil is probably just what I want. Sounds like it will be softer than my first run fossil scales?

Maybe the fossil blend changed, but the ones I threw a year or two ago were crazy stiff. Like the old G9i stiffness.
