If i look at Infinite Discs and there "softness bar" under the discs,

The Judge Classic is at 4 for softness. . .blend at 5 and soft at 7

Wizard soft is at 4 . . .super soft 7 and super stupid soft at 8

So if this i right the super soft is alot softer than a "blend"

There is no hard and fast rule for flexibility in Gateway's plastics. Some SSS start firmer than Softs. I have a couple Mediums that are softer than some of my SSs. If you buy online and frequent a shop that lists firmness ratings, then that's the best you're going to get.

So am I the only one who has decided to put blinders on and just throw S Wizards and skip the whole inconsistency issue? I putt with Daggers so no need to seek out just the right feel.

I just bought a couple dozen G9i reissues when they were first released. My practice basket has ER25, Fossil, G9i, Glow Evo, and a few other blends. They all putt like Wizards regardless of how they feel.

The original G9i was the stamp like has been posted lately. The ones I bought were run years later after Dave picked up more of the plastic that bred the early runs that started the flex test BS. I bought my hoard after the first recent run before he started messing with the formula.

sorry if I missed it...

Is the wizard a retool? From 21.0 diam to 21.2 now?

Are PWPs the closest to G9is? I use 2 mediums acquired from a PIAS years ago, and would like backups as close as possible...TIA

I thought you were saying there was another recent batch. Which, if true, would require me to call Gateway and get 20 stamped up with the SP logo.

PWPs aren't a thing anymore--they were a prototype. PWs are.

PWs are closest in stiffness, although they are much higher shouldered than G9i. PW are great overstable throwers, but they fell pretty different in a putting grip.

The measurement change was just a remeasurement, not a retool. So 175 gram Wizards would be "legal". Because whiners were whining.
