There is a ton of support for Gateway here, and even those who poke fun at the "stiffness" ratings are bangin' bags full of wizards.

I think people have a great appreciation here for the craft goodness of Gateway and the variety that a small run, craft process produces. A lot of us also appreciate that Gateway has helped RDG get its foot in the gateway, and now we have more molds produced in a highly personalized, artisan process.
Yes, that is the joke. But also, as a past thrower of gateway, i can say that i was pretty put off when ordering from an online retailer when i got several discs stamped and marked as one thing and the flexibility was nowhere close to that.

Variance in runs is part of the business, most of us get that. But when you run a batch of "soft" and they come out with the flexibility of a burrito wrap, and they still get marked soft, how do you defend that?

Because "Soft" doesn't refer to flexibility like every other manufacturer uses it? It's a poor choice for plastic blend terminology, but it is what it is.

What's the most durable Wizard? Would like to get one in a champ or star type of plastic but have never seen anything like that in stores.

That's the best functioning thought your brain has had.

Phantom Discs has Evo Wizards (Star-ish), Clear Evo Wizards (champ-ish), and Platinum Evo Wizards (not sure what to compare those to).

I'm sure you could call up the Gateway factory and ask them what kind of Evo Wizards they have in stock as well (Facebook the "Gateway Underground" page for the phone number).

I'm confused a little bit by the low profile putter lineup. You have the Chief, the Chief OS and the Shaman. Does the Chief have the Wizard wing, the Chief OS a new different wing, and the Shaman the Magic wing? Then you have the Devilhawk and Warspear that have a grooved top. I think the Warspear and Shaman have the same wing; does the Devilhawk use the Wizard/Chief wing? How would they line up most-to-least stable? I've heard that both the Devilhawk and Chief OS are beefy, but I don't know how the rest of them line up stability-wise. Thanks.
