Heres one of my Wizs next to a Reko. Feel wise Id say it lives somewhere between a Warlock/Aviar and a Wizard, much closer to the Wizard. Rekos always have puddle tops so they feel shollower than any Wiz or Warlock or Aviar Ive ever fondled. The bead is not noticeable. Flight wise, a beat in Wizard is how Id describe the Reko. Hair of flip up on a slight hyzer realease and it cruises straight. They dont have quite the glide of a Wiz but they are a tick faster it seems, could be just a preconceived notion of mine or it could be due to the puddletop. Either way, if I ever was in a pinch and needed a more worked throwing Wizard on the spot, Id feel confident with the Reko.

I got my baseline jOKERI out and tossed it tonight against a medium worn Wizard, almost fresh soft Electron Envy and the 1055 Paul McBeth bottom stamp Avair.

The Avair was the most stable of the group. The Envy had the most glide. The beat in jOKERI was very stable but not OS. It did not have the glide of the Envy and a touch faster.

I can throw a Wizard but not putt with one, so take this with a grain of salt, but it was a touch more stable than the jOKERI.

The test was done at 21 feet, all the room I had inside without something in my way. The Envy, Wizard and jOKERI were 173g. The Avair was 175.

The standard Aviar P&A? Theyre beadless, glidey & straight. They come in a bunch of different plastics.

I’ve switched to the Discraft Roach. Pro D for putts, Big Z for straight drives and Ti for drives that fade. The stamp is horrific and I wipe it first thing. But it’s a great putter. Feels great in the hand and is very neutral.

Sooooooo, I got my hands on a reko tonight from a fellow member and as soon as I grabbed it,it felt like the perfect fit. Very comfy profile and reminiscent to the voodoo. I really liked the blend of plastic and slightly concave too. 8/10 circle putts went in,the rest were too long to run along with those 2 missed. I got the putter on hole 6 but it was like I clicked immediately when it was in my hand. As of now,very impressed. More testing over the weekend

Talk about perfect timing. I was looking for a practice stack and someone happened to have 7 used ones, ready for me to join the single black one I have

Disc mania is having a valentine sale in which their sweetheart discs are bogo. The base plastic putter is included. Too cute!

Then try the R-Pro Aviar Put & approach, that is in the plastic you want a soft Flex but not floppy plastic, a few more driver like putters made in the R-Pro comes out floppy in some runs like the Dart.

Seems you have found the putter you want and Berg Being a European brand form Germany it will be easier to get your hands on the disc if you live in Finland.
