I've been snatching them up every time I come across some. I've picked up a few of the yellows, but really like the feel of the reds. They're great putters, but also great throwers.

I only grabbed one yellow and liked it out of the box. But for drives, it started to get a little squirrely on me after getting just a little beat up. I couldn't really trust it to hold the line I put it on.

The reds so far have held up very well, and continue to be good stable throwers even after showing some wear. Just like the old small-stamp S wizards I've been throwing forever. They just get more and more beat and barely change their flight. So my yellow has moved to practice basket putting duty.

My red one smashed a tree and now has zero fade... My yellow one scuffed pretty bad on a rocky course. The jury is still out on the durability.

Really liking Gateways Diamond plastic. Any experience with Diamond Wizards or platinum (new runs). I ordered some off Marshalls so if nothing I’ll do my best to review and post.

I'm still trying to figure diamond plastic out.
I have 2 diamonds the are both 'champ-like' (completely see thru) that have a small dome. They are not my favorite. They are bricks, they don't have the glide when powered up like normal.
I also have one diamond that is metal-flaked. It is similar to the above.
Now.... I have 2 diamonds that are like matted-star plastic. You can't see through them (yellow). The plastic has a decent grip and they are tougher than nails. These fly like brand new wizards every time. They are great wind fighters, flatter than the above. They are a touch on the slick side so you get decent ground-play with them. I love these diamonds.

The matted star sounds like the Prophecies I have. I absolutely love that material. I’m hoping the ones I ordered are with that plastic. They looked like it in the photo.

I’ve also had one of those matted star-like diamond prophecies, and it felt amazing. Great grip and a little bit of flex. It was also yellow.

Love my Evo platinums for that slot. Grippy soft in the right way Fills the gap between a straight PW and my Berg. Stable, some glide (not like base wizards), lands softly.

I have no Wizard experience. Was checking them out on some retailer sites & there is an overwhelming amount of plastic options. My favorite putting plastic is Prodigy's 350g. What Wizard plastic would be similar? Firm flight plate & grippy. Not KC Pro slick.

I dont have a ton of prodigy experience but I would guess start with soft. Its actually pretty firm but grippy. Its also widely available.
