Default Voodoo vs Wizard Vs Magic

What to you prefer off the tee, in the circle, out of the circle and why?

I love my SSS Wizard but outside 20 feet im unable to hyzer it into the basket and cant get enough umph on it. The wizard works great in a head/cross wind. Whats the magic good for, is the voodoo more glide. Puttings the most important part of the game just wanna step mine up. I know its not the disc that makes the player, but you feel more confident with better equipment.

I use Wizards off the tee, in the circle, and out of the circle. They feel great in my hand, hold the line, and can stand up to most wind conditions. I tested out some Magics with decent results, I found them to be very true flyers - quite good for floaty, straight putts. However, they were a bit too easily affected by the wind for my tastes. I never like the feel of the Voodoo in my hand, but lots of people swear by them.

There is no best option between the three, to be honest - it all comes down to what works best for you. If you are curious about them, go pick up a Voodoo and Magic. Throw them a bit, putt with them a bit, see how it all shakes out. You will know pretty quickly which one you prefer.

To further enhance the Gateway putter dilemma, they produce the Scale & Serpent for Reptilian Disc Golf and now the Iridium for Element Discs. All of which are fantastic feeling and flying discs.

Gateway rules...plain and simple!

I use Wizards for putts, upshots, and drives. I like the way they feel in my hand.

The reptilian discs look sick and the decals are awesome, but the prices are so low. Are they PDGA approved? How close are they to the wizard. What blend is most like the SSS

I'd say the Voodoo is a better long putting putter. It looks a little odd, but feels great (to me) and flies great. Straight and glidey.

I use the Wizard for all duties. Putting, upshots and drives. They cycle really nice and I am confident in them. I usually carry around 3 Wizards, all different stages of wear.

I reach for the Wizard for the majority of shots ranging from 50' - 150' or so. I like them for short drives and jump putting. For everything I want to run at inside of 50' I switch to the Magic and fire a laser straight to the chains! The Magic is a nice turnover driver. I like them for straight or slight anny lines (especially downhill shots).
