Next time I have a day off work and nothing to do and its nice out I'm taking a trip to the gateway store. I'm going to feel up so many putters and probably walk away with some wizards. I need to stop visiting this thread because you're too good a hype man for the wizard grip. You're giving me gas(gear aqcuisition syndrome)

Idk bruh, my stack of G9i’s beg to differ. Haha I love PW, Fossil, and all the firm and gritty blends to death.. but for my throwers, G9i is something special. Looove them. Low profile, great grip after a few rounds, and super durable. My ‘fresh’ G9i has kept the same overstable flight for a year and a half now, which is amazing considering how often I use it. I throw it at the very LEAST 10 times a round.
I swear by G9i’s.

I just wanted to add my (limited) experience of the PWs. I have two, one marked PWP (stiffer) and one marked PW. Both have a wizard holding an orb as the stamp. They feel great in the hand and just zip out. Although they started a bit overstable they seasoned really fast and are now dead straight. My old medium wizard that is 10 years older at least still has a lot more fade.

I didnt include G9i because it's a specialty now. It isn't in production and if you wanna go down the rabbit hole then that's on the individual so I only included the stuff in production.

That has been my experience as well. I really like throwing them but they're starting to drift on me slightly. On the first round they're way too stable then after about 10 rounds they start to drift a few feet right. They sweet spot though, that is money, I need a wizard that lives there.

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.
I bought a pair of red Nikkos and I am really happy with them. Very flat and low profile with a nice firmness. Mine both weigh in at 176. I might save these rather than throw them, I'm trying to resist the urge to buy more.

You may be the man to ask here, how is the hand feel of the glow plastic compared to the PW?

Depends man. They’re has been so many different runs of glow.. my personal favorite are the older runs from the ‘03 to like ‘07 time frame.. a lot were a nice velvety SS, low profile and glowed for days.. nowadays they have a lot of different runs of glow. I have a ‘glow stiff’ that is basically a Glow G9i and a regular glow that’s like SS.

I have a pair of those stiff glows as well. They are the stiffest Wizards in my collection.
