Yeah mine is very opaque. Flies like any other Wizard just not that far. And it is pretty flexy which is a turn-off for me. Not really sure I even need a very OS putter, when the Scott Withers Gator is overstable enough that even as a mid it doesnt go very far.

My two diamonds are more on the firmer side...so maybe that's the difference in flight?!

Differences in flight for Wizards have to do with the "shoulder" of the disc. The straighter ones have a low shoulder that transitions to a flat top. The more overstable ones have a higher shoulder that leads to a sometimes flat sometimes slightly domey top. They feel deeper in the hand.

After looking at my two last night, I completely agree with this. I was comparing a few of my old wizards to the recent runs and the nose is noticeably different. My older wizards are straighter with a slight hyzer finish. My newer runs have a very pronounced fade to them.

Ordered a "Firm" blend thrower...interested to see how they fly. Already have a pair for putting for next year. They feel nice in the hand, a little higher shouldered.

So what has come out lately that has a nice low shoulder? It’s time to start considering a new stack of putting putters.

Get yourself some of these wizards. I have a small stack and they might be in my top 3 of wizard runs. Lower shoulder, putt straight with a reliable slight fade on the end. They also drive incredibly straight too. I told Dom that they need to make this a regular stock item.

Ok, so only the top and upper right discs are wizards. The bottom 3 are voodoos. These are all from the early 2017 swirly runs. The top wizard is a wall hanger, the right wizard is my dad's main putting putter, and the voodoos are all in the practice putter stack. If I ever switched to putting voodoos the orange would likely go in my bag immediately.
