Just hope the Wizard is not G9i as that is no longer PDGA but could be used as a practice Wizard if you like and have the low dome discs in some other stiffer plastic.

Wrong! Stop spreading misinformation. G9i Wizards are perfectly legal to be thrown in sanctioned competition. The PDGA asked Gateway to stop making them. They never banned them. This has to be the fourth or fifth time you've had to be corrected on this. Dave Mac himself provided this information. Just stop.

No they have ban them, well the person running the even might that is why I said that. I almost got ban because I used the G9i in a PDGA event in 2008. Though it seems like a gray area especially since some were without a PDGA approved logo on them in the early 2000's.

Well Good luck if the only putter somebody has is a G9i and the tournament director is one who bans the disc for competition due to it not being allowed to be made anymore by the PDGA.

The drama involving them happened long after 2008. It was during the reissues, not the originals. It's what caused the latest tooling to be created. You need to stop. Seriously.

Adding this to the conversation to hopefully finally stop the misinformation. Thanks to Hampstead for doing the research. This mirrors the conversation I had with Dave when the announcement was made as I was trying to get him to sell me more before they disappeared.

as you and the rest of the players know theres more innova drivers that do not pass the pdga tech standards for flex out there than all other companies "legal" discs combined in play at most pdga events.

the only 2 mens open players i know of that won pdga worlds championships or usdgc without a firm putter and approach in the least 23 years ( that didnt pass pdga tech standards were ron russell and eric McCabe). everyone else had firm putters. its possible Nate doss may not have used too firm discs but i think he had really firm magnets at some point.

Its true the g9i's were pretty stiff,,we are just trying to give customers what they want.
Please keep in mind it was written on a mobile device, which may explan the typos.
