In other news...

A few months ago I sold my beloved Reko stack bc I lost the touch for them.

My cuz lent me a beat up Fossil Wiz and it was back to smashing chains.

Something about a beat Wiz just putts perfectly. It floats, barely fades and just glides right to the chains.

You know, I was reading the Bead vs. No Bead thread and I was thinking to myself I prefer a bead in all aspects and wouldn't want a beadless putter. But really its more than the bead, its the Wizard. A Wizard just is what a putter is to me and if it weren't on the market, I honestly don't know that I would do.

Closest disc I have seen that is same height and is a Focus, a US regular bead version of the Wizard with a little bit more on the glide. I think However The DGA Steady would be the closest disc to a Wizard but has a tad more glide. They even now make a Stone Steady that is a harder plastic version of the D. https://discgolf.com/disc-golf-discs...approach-disc/

Just looked up Wizard numbers and yes, both the Steady and Wizard are really similar flight wise.

The STLDGC had a couple runs made for the STL Open this past weekend. I didn't get a chance to play, but went to registration just to pick up a couple.

Wizard and Focus have the same profile, but the Focus has some HST whereas the Wizard doesn't. I've used both, and am actaully negotiating for a pair of medium/softs.

Ummm I've also used both and I've found the Focus to be much flippier...even out of the box.

I wasn't throwing my baseline Foci, but my premium ones still showed a manageable ampunt of turn. I haven't thrown a fresh Wiz in a while though.
