For me, there's a big difference between what makes a good throwing Wizard and what makes a good putting Wizard. If all Wizards were high-shouldered, I'd have to look for new throwing putters...

I agree 100% if I used did use Wizard discs currently for both putting, taller profile Wizard and driving/approach-long putt, lower profile Wizard as the lower works best for the driving without feeling clunky.

My dad on the other hand would have to look for new driving putters if the Wizard he has got lost and the Wizard in high shoulder was gone. He can't use the low shoulder/low profile Wizards as then the mold feels more like a taller putter version of the Gator, then the lower profile is more midrange like for him as a less OS slower version of the Gator. My dad wants for his profile Wiazrd for both driving and if he used Wizard for putting, a Wizard that has the taller profile so for his driving putter he can throw the disc knowing it will act more like a putter and for putting will be slower not go as far on a miss.

Default Wizard

Just bought two max weight eraser wizards. Fantastic putter. I wanted something that was firm but had a tacky grip. I’ve already played a round with it and I’m happy with my purchase. It also throws really well. My question is to all of the wizard aficionados, what plastic do you like to use it as a throwing putter in? I don’t want to beat up my eraser ones. Thanks!

You should beat up your eraser ones.

Actually (this might just be me but I'll throw it out there) my putting Wizards are far and away the most beat-up of my Wizards. They hit the basket. My driving Wizards mostly hit air and grass, they are in a lot better shape.

Anyway...for somebody who likes Eraser Wizards for putting I'd say get an SS Wizard for driving. Maybe an S Wizard. One of those two. Stick to the baseline Sure Grip plastic.

I tend to agree, until you really whack one into a tree! Then you've got a nice smooth disc with one side bent down.

I also prefer the firmer baseline plastic for throwing. I tend to think that Eraser won't hold up well as a thrower but who knows. Mainly you want to avoid any plastic that loses chunks of material when it hits things. So the really chalky stuff is usually out.

For Wizards I'm currently throwing a PWP (stiff as a board) and a Firm Nikko. The Nikko Wizards are technically a kind of "special blend" plastic, but it feels pretty much like a regular "firm" wizard to me.

My favorite throwers over the years have all been "S" wizards, which are probably closest to the present-day "SS" firmness.

This is pretty much what I do. The hemp ones might also not be a bad choice. I dunno, I like em. But, my throwing putters become putting putters, I don't separate them. THEN they become far more beaten up.

So the eraser wizards are good throwers? They don’t feel like they would catch the ground very well. They’re firm.

What’s the difference between organic wizards and organic hemp? I imagine they’re probably the same.

The hemp ones I have are tackier. Although, that could be typical gateway though. It's a love/hate.. when I really want a disc that is how I want it, I call them.. describe it, and they have always come either extremely close, or spot on.

Solution: Don't hit trees.

Eraser is like any Gateway plastic; some of it is really firm, some not so much. I've got I think five from the same run in like 2016, they were all super firm. They could have been labeled Medium and I wouldn't have questioned it. They just have a tackier grip to them.
