I have had good results with this as well.

Inside the circle they're basically identical, it's all about what feels good in your hand and works for you. They are a little more different throwing them further, but they're more similar than they are different. Many people find that the wizards go just slightly further on drives, but they'll hold pretty similar lines.

i like kc pros for approaches and short drives. but for putting they tend to spit and bounce out more than my regular dx aviars. im thinking because of the stiff plastic.
i'd like to pick up a SSS wizard for putting and a SS or medium for drives/approaches.

My kc aviars seem to have more glide. I picked up a couple delicious feeling wizards today to try and rekindle that old flame. Definitely better grip, but don't fill out the hand as much and therefore lead to space while putting more than the kc which is bulkier. Dat plastic tho...

I've always thought the KC has more glide than the Wizard as well. Love the plastic on the Wiz, but the KC gets me more birdies.

KCs seem to have more glide for sure both throwing and putting. I tend to prefer a little less glide on my discs though, so the Wizard is my mainstay. Both discs are capable of filling the same role, except the Wizard responds better in wind.

The latest runs of wizards have had tight noses & very flat plates.
They just never get old. Such $ flyers right off the shelf

yeah, i was very surprised at how flat they all are. pretty low profile compared to what i'm used to in a wiz.

it's funny; i just bought it at GGGT and went to play plymouth creek; smashed chains on hole 9 with it and it caught, got slung back forward out of the basket so i said "alright, i guess i'll keep trying them."
