I really don't understand what "catch the ground" means. Are you talking about landing and staying put VS. skipping?

Yes. It may not actually matter considering the disc is pretty deep feeling. I doubt it would skip much.

My experience is that both organic and hemp blends all tend to lose chunks of material like I mentioned before. So they're poor throwers because sometimes when you hit a tree, you'll have a big gouge/chunk taken off the rim. You might get an abrupt change in stability, if you take a chunk off the lower part of the wing or the bead.

None of the base plastic blends will be very prone to skipping. My recommendation is to stick with plain old SS Wizards. PWP if you like it flat and firm.

I've become a big fan of Diamond Wizards. I know people say they don't have the glide but I have no problem with throwing them on holes up to 300'. It flies how I'd expect a stable putter to fly. They hold up really well, Diamond plastic has become my preferred plastic for its ability to hold together.

This is true of any baseline plastic. Don't hit trees.

Have you noticed much of a difference between Orgo, SS, and PWP for durability? I'm getting back into throwing Wizards and LOVE my orgo one. But it does chunk up pretty quickly, especially since some of the baskets around me are a little rocky/sandy. I haven't noticed too much stability loss, but the damage is around the rim, not by the bead.

Ive got my fair share of old S Wizards that have taken tons of abuse without any big gouges. My proto Fossil Scale has also beaten in to dead straight without any major issues. Seems like some base plastics can take it.

I dont have much experience with PWP, the one in my bag has gotten light use over the past year and thats it. SS is definitely more durable than Organic in my experience. Ive never kept an Organic in the bag for more than a season.

I was messing around and trying to see how many 20 ft putts I could sink in 1min. Which required digging out all old putters.

Was surprised to find my two old Wizards still putted really well, made putts with them very easily. If they weren’t so darn deep I might have to revisit them.
