Default Wizard Throwers, Help!

I need to know what plastic you guys prefer for the Wizard! I have a Polecat in the bag right now and I'm gonna keep it for my lay up putter, but i want to see if i can replace my JK Aviar with a Wizard. I've heard that the Wizard is a very consistent putter and I just want to know what plastic i should get?

This question might be answered better by an email to Gateway directly. You can get any feel and firmness in the Sure Grip plastic (Medium/Soft/SS/SSS/RFF) so it's best for you to decide what you want.

If you want a JK-style feel and firmness, I would suggest a softer SS with a velvety feel.

Hi, I have also replaced my jk aviar with a wizard for throwing. I use a SS super soft and it's more firm than the jk but maybe not as firm as a kc aviar, but close.
the wizard SS is great for drives. Although some of my friends have softer grippier wizards that also drive well.
can't really go wrong driving with any wizard

these might not be so easy to find...

Soft or SuperSoft Wizards are great for putting. I prefer soft, but once it gets cold out i'll probably toss the supersofts.

I like my ions(wizard clone) a little more for the approach.

The Eraser Wizards are my favorite, but I also love my 4S's.

Mediums, any real firm soft or g9i are the way to go. I like the firmest you can get, their like controllable rockets?

At a tournament would you ask the guy on your card what plastic his putter was?
