I use the Nikkos for putting only.

Last year, I used the two Soft Wizards for approaches and drives. The oldest one has been in the bag since 2013, the newer one, since 2018. The newer one is plenty seasoned, but still holds a strong fade when put on a hyzer. I use it as my all purpose workhorse. The older one I use for more understable work like turning shots.

Since Soft Wizards went OOP, I have not been crazy about any of the current plastic options offered by Gateway. I've got a couple Soft Wizards stowed away, but I'm not in any hurry to break them out. I don't ever want a bag without Soft Wizards.

So I decided to bag my old Soft Ion. Honestly, it should have been in my bag this whole time. I wanted to learn how to throw all shots with Wizards and at this point I feel like I've accomplished that. The Soft Ion will work its way into the rotation. It is faster and has more glide than my Wizards, plus it's in premium plastic. It will be mostly utilized off the tee, while the Wizards will handle more of the approach work.

My thinking is, if I am willing to insert Ions into my Wizard "cycle", it will help extend the longevity of the Soft Wizards I've got.

Sucks when a plastic for a disc is no longer offered. I have had this before with the XL and went for the Z Stalker in its place. Turns out the other option works even better for what I need.

I added the GStar Sidewinder that I used for the bulk of last season, it holds a turn better than my fresher one.

If I removed the Firebirds and replaced the Roc/3 discs with the Shark 3 I could more then likely play with your bag. I used Wizards at one point and I do like a softer disc usually for for longer putting. Then the Ion is almost a lower profile Wizard. Sidewinder I have tried and could use but do not feel is super comfortable compared to the Valkyrie. Also you have a Road Runner, a disc I have tried as well though not Star, Champion and in Star the Road Runner will be more OS.
