FYI they stopped calling them soft and are now finally marking them firm. But I would agree that’s the closest to 350g.

Are softs a flexible soft again? I putt with current firms, which are softer than old firms but similar grip. My pure whites are tackier and stiffer than my firms.

Pure whites are definately the best. Fossil is great but I haven't tried it in wizards yet.

I just picked up this pair of beautiful swirly wizards and couldn't be happier with them. Marked as "SS" with $ under it--not sure if this is the same as $$$ or something else. Great mix of firmness, a little flex, and tackiness.

They've made me decide to switch back to Wizards (it's been years). I'm putting with above pair and I've got a well seasoned SS from when I used to throw them for understable duties but I'm wondering what y'all would recommend for overstable off-the-tee wizards? I'm in New England so something that maintains its stability well would be ideal.

The pure whites have been making bags for that spot (they break into nice putters). I like the newer firms and newer SS also. Fossils hold their wizardry too. The opaque diamonds work well if you are looking for a premium plastic.
I hear Nikko's fly nice.

Grabbed a couple of Evolution Diamond and a couple of Evolution Platinum. I honestly cannot tell them apart. The plastic feels identical. They're both what I'd consider to be pretty domey and high shoulder. Threw one of the Diamonds today. Boy, that disc has some stability to it. Tossed it out to 250' but could have gotten more out of it if shot selection allowed. The disc easily has a fade of 3. I'm really liking it so far.

Whatever was the PDGA Legal unkown stiffness of baseline plastic from the early 2000's. That plastic was like old Pro D or Old DX/Modern XT. Stiff and more durable but not as stiff as firm/hard plastic.

I'm excited. I have an old, un-thrown Soft on the way, as well as a mystery Wizard. I won a wiz on a FB auction. I told my guy to throw in another stiff one and doubled my winning bid. He obliged. To everyone reading this thread: You need 'a guy'. PM me if you need a good one.
