I have the same problem with my thumb bad in the winter not to bad in the summer. With the RDG top I am assuming the thumb grove makes it feel thinner than it is. Can't wait to try it hoping to find one in premium plastics

My first run Fossil Scale is really beat. Has not sat flat on a table for over a year. Just like DRB said, it still has HSS I'd put with a fresh Wiz. First they start to fade forward, then just start to drop. Still good in the wind.

And yea, it does get hard to justify dropping a fresh Wiz in the bag. I still keep a fresh one for shots I don't want to loose one of my seasoned Scales.

2 Scales and 2 or 3 throwing Wizards cover everything I need in my P&A game.

I tried to love the Scale but it wasn't doing anything for me that I couldn't already do with a Wizard. Still a great mold, just didn't see a need for both.

I'd find a place in my bag for a premium scale but I don't want to cycle?

Fossil Scales are cheap and tough enough to just replace your beat in one with a fresh one

For the the scale is way more hss than a wizard, but it's probably more a product of my bad form.

Jcass, what's the news on the next run of fossil scales? I know there are some FF or chalk pits on the website but the straight fossils are my fav.

Just had a production run stamp cut.
We have tons of Fossil in stock awaiting stamping. I think the batch that recently came out/the batch soon to hit shelves, are the best Fossil Scales made.


Back to the Wizard: DaveMac ran me a ton of Fossil Wizards. Unfortunately, many of them weren't firm enough for my liking and they likely won't make the cut.
There may be some Fossil Flex that I end up releasing but as for Fossil Wiz... This batch wasn't what I want to push put there under that name.

This is too bad. Thanks for having the highest quality standards Jamie!
