For some reason dark Red is the Best when getting Wizard putters (not including PWP) then Black was next best at least in terms of how consistent the discs would be in the 2000's. The coral color was off bad according to those who used the discs in the 2000's and had more then one mold, Gray was third but that might have been a black just not color dyed all the way.

Yeah bit others who had more then one mold the colors were something to look for in the 2000's as it was true the dark Red and Black were most constant mostly due to how many were run in those two colors so you could find easier the plastic type one wanted. Dark gray was my guess just a Black that Gateway facility had run out of black more so you got a dark gray, also the Black Discs could fade to a dark grey overtime mainly the organic discs more then any.

In terms of recent runs of Wizards, the Firm Nikko Wizards with the circle chain stamp are where it's at. These things just might be the best driving Wizard to date(Even better than the PW's). Brand new they are dead nuts straight with the tiniest bit of fade on the end. After a few rounds they become pretty much just a straight flyer with zero turn and zero fade. Combine that with the additional glide and speed they seem to have and you have a winner of a driving putter.


In regard to the person that asked about the tooling. The shop is aware of the PITA that this new tooling is in terms of putting grip. There are some wizards floating around the shop with no tooling at all on the bottom of them. They're mostly SS and SSS in flex. They also tend to have the lower shoulder and a flat top too If the tooling bothers you, just take a razor blade and slowly carve off the tooling. I've been told this is perfectly legal to do as the tooling doesn't have an effect on the flight of the disc.

Stocking up on the new Firm Wizards...these fly really nice. Going to try and phase out the Softs.

Fossil is harder and has a slicker surface in my experience. Firm has a little more flex and a more chalky feel.

I'd say this is true. I had to think about it, none of my fossils are new
