I'm gonna have to vote Wiz. I know they are all similar but something just feels right with a soft wizard. I will say I'm found of flx challengers and yetis.

I've tested all 3. Challenger wins for me...though at the moment I'm really digging the McPros, but that's another thread.

Whoever said Wizards have more glide than Challengers and KC Aviars is high. They have the least glide of the 3.

I'm a push putter who loves driving with putters, so it's the Challenger because it's in the sweet spot stability wise. Wizards are too overstable IMO to use both for putting and driving...but maybe that's just my style of golf.

I agree wizards do not more more glide than kcs that's the reason i stopped using wizards and wizards are too over stable for putting duties for me.

Wizards are too low profile for my big hands.

So I switched back to KC's.

My cheapo 174g Pro-D Challenger is money in the bank inside the circle and I've hit some amazing (for a newbie like me) putts out beyond 40' with it.

Now for the disclaimer... I have not tried the other two putters mentioned so I really can't make a fair comparison. I've had such good success with the Challenger I see no reason to switch up.

Now if I could only get my drivers to work near as well as my putter I think I could be a scratch player.

I voted for the wizard. Low profile, different plastics, etc. I've tried kc aviars and the felt too deep and too hard for me. I don't even notice the bead on the wizard but for some reason the bead on the kc aviar bothers me.

From Gateway's Website:
The Wizard’s balance of air flowing under and over the leading edge is much closer to equal than the Aviar, which allows for greater glide on declanation.

Putt with all three and see how true that statement is.

And anyone that has read Gateway's page and doesn't disagree is high?

I'd say the Wizard glides better than the Challenger. I haven't thrown Aviars.
