Take a look at the blowfly. It's crazy floppy.

If it's not soft enough toss a few thumbers & maybe a few tree introductions & it will be on its way to buttery goodness! My Magic is warped, bent, the flightplate looks like a roller coaster but that is it's sweet spot!

this right here.

every gateway putter run is totally different. regardless of what it is marked, it may be totally different as far as texture and stiffness. it is best to get gateway from experienced dealers or from people on here who can evaluate the plastic for you. it's nice when someone can tell you 'well it's marked SSS but is closer to an SS and is not quite as chalky.'

best thing to do is buy them in person or get the gateway direct deal - 5/$40 or 10/$70 i think. you can tell them what you want and get a lot of putters that should all be pretty darn close.

this is why i gave up on gateway. from magic-wizard they have a putter with the stability and feel you want but the inconsistency annoyed me too much after a while. have fun!

I have two SSS Magics, 175g. I wouldn't say they are floppy...they have a great feel, chalky to eraser type feel. But the discs themselves are stiff...much stiffer than my champion Rhyno. I also have a SSS Warlock that feels the exact same. Chalky in my hands but stiff and rigid almost.

To reiterate what Glong said, Gateway runs are super-inconsistent. Also, they grade the softness by the "feel", not necessarily by the "floppiness". So I have a SS that is floppier than my SSS, but the SSS has a more rubbery texture.

It's always best to buy Gateway from a store where you can pick up the disc and feel it, but you can also call MarshallStreetdiscgolf.com and tell them what you want and they'll get them for you.

Default Magic putters

I use a SS magic (tacky) and SSSS magic (organic, rubbery) for putting. I'm looking for a driving putter counterpart. I would like to stick with the same mold. Looking at a regular (not medium, or soft..) magic. What is the most stable: glow, evolution, etc? What would you recommend. I have used an Opto Pure in the past, however, it feels a little to stable for me. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

no magic is really going to be a good driving putter. a glow or evo would be most stable though. i would try a glow warlock and see what you think of that.

Nothing wrong with driving magics, they aren't very stable, but it doesn't mean they aren't useful off the tee. Any magic will be fine for driving. Evo is the way to go overall, though.
