Default The Challenger,KC Pro Aviar or the Wizard?

I've been pondering this for a few days now.

Lets say you had to choose one of these putters. Which one would you pick and why? The Discraft Challenger,The Innova KC Pro Aviar or The Gateway Wizard?

i chose the wizard over the others because it has more glide, more high speed stability, and has the bullet nose (preferred for driving). It also comes in any plastic you can imagine, some will tell you that's a bad thing, but they're just being silly.

MVP Ion.

Ok, ok. Of those, I pick the Wizard, for Gateway's sweet, supple, made to perfection plastic choices. Plus the Wiz flies pretty well too.

Edit: Yea, Kaiser has it right about the plastics. The more choices the merrier.

I use wizards now because I can't get kc pro in that wonderful chalky firm plastic anymore... All the newer kc pros are waxy or similar to yeti plastic. I'm talking the stuff that makes that "hollow" sound when it hits the chains. Similar to a good soft wizard.

Wizard all the way. They season so amazingly tasty. The challenger/aviar cost $30 bucks a piece for gateway-esque plastic. Wizards can be had at a fraction of the cost in every feel, color and grip

So far the Wizard is in the lead. No Challenger takers I see.

It all comes down to personal preference and what you want to use it for.
Absolutely love my FLX Challenger for upshots and short holes - gets more use than any other disc in my bag (really) - but it's too OS for my putting style, so I putt with an APX.
That said, I've seen guys who are deadly in the circle with a Pro D Challenger... works for their putting style: banging chains with authority.

If I were forced to carry only a single putter, I'd have to go with something that wasn't quite as OS as a Challenger to enhance my performance in the circle, yet still have some overstability so I could use it for short tee shots and upshots... sounds a helluva lot like a Wizard to me.

More than any other type of dis, putters are about "feel" and what works for you, and less about technique and "the numbers." Obviously, Wizards work for a lot of people.

Given all that, I didn't vote.

FWIW - from the ones I've thrown, I'd say Challengers have greater HSS than Wizards.

KC Aviar- It doesn't drop and roll like the wizard.
