I’m just waiting until I have the funds to buy about 10 more backups, and then I will let you guys know whether they are any good or not.

When you all say high/low shoulder what are you referring to?

Does the thinner flight plate on the Nikkos produce puddle tops or are they flat? Any difference in flights on putts or throws? What are your impressions?

The area on the top of the flight plate that transitions to the side.

I don't think I'm describing that well

Shoulder is the edge of the flight plate. If you feel a PW it feels "tall" if you feel a regular Wiz (S,SS,SSS,OG,ER,RFF) it's much "slimmer" this is created by the shoulder. If you call the leading edge the nose the shoulder is the top of t he nose where it meets the flight plate. Hope this helps.

Mine are very flat. My yellow SS has a little bit of give to the flight plate and my red firms have little/none. The yellow SS feels more or less like standard S plastic to me. The red firm is more rubbery and chalky. The flight plate is noticeably thinner than other recent wizards and the tooling is more pronounced. I sanded it down on one of mine, and it feels much better. Flight is fast and straight stable, I think the SS will be a thrower for me and the firms will be backups for the old mediums that I am still using as my primary putters. The new firms are pretty much drop in replacements for those.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one sanding down the tooling. I'll have to try the firmer run, the first run of these have been great throwers for me.

How is the wizard for a driving/approach putter? I currently putt with warlocks and I'm looking for an upshot disc. In the past I used a classic marshal and now I've been using a plasma envy. I'm not 100% satisfied with the envy for approaching. Was thinking of trying out a wizard in this spot.
