My fav wizards were the "chalky blue" prototypes. very soft touch yet firm and great grip when wet. Only problem is how fast they clover-topped with use.
Organic is my favorite normal run plastic.
Oh and stay away from "eraser" wizards.

Why stay away from erasers? The first Wizard I had was an eraser and I really liked it for putting. Got chewed up a bit fast driving, but nice and grippy for putts.

Also gets chewed up simply hitting chains.

If you can come across any, the evo Pro-Line plastic is nice for driving. Seemingly less glide, though nearly indestructible plastic with more overstable tendencies.

Not a fan of the Pro Evo I have had. Would take layers off on hard hits.

I love the SSS for putting, the firmer white ones are money. Speaking of money the $$$ stamped wizards are pretty darn sweet feeling.

HPP is my driving putter of choice. I carry one newer and one beaten.

Really? I've only ever had star plastic come off like that. As far as premium plastics go, pro evo is one of the toughest I have come across. But, you know Gateway... Rarely consistent.

I really like my Eraser and Chalk Wizards. Reason is, I like a nice tacky grip, but still firm and these two types fit that bill. One thing I must add. IMO Gateways plastic is all over the place. So if you can, it's best that you try them in person, because you never know if a "SSS" is going to be more like a standard "S" or vise versa.

For putting Wizards I preferred Organics with a velvety, grippy feel but a stiff rim.

For driving I liked flat, gummy evo Wizards, which are a complete pain in the ass to find. Most Evo's are domey, and from what I've seen only about 10% are as gummy as I like.

Stiff softs are also good for both. They beat into nice straight driving Wizards much more quickly than an Evo ever will.

nobody has said it yet - Glow Wiz!

I like its feel, its firm but tacky, I use it outside of the circle because its consistently stable and mines a little light also.

plus it glows haha.
