Spent some more time yesterday doing putting practice with these new PW Magic's. While I am putting indoors, I must say, I'm still pretty impressed with how these are putting for me. My current practice routine is five putts from 15-20-25-30 until I get to 100 putts. The last two times through this, I've gone 93/100 and 96/100. For me, this is ridiculous because I'm usually around the 80/100 mark. The one thing I've noticed since switching up my PW Wizards for these PW Magic's is that I'm missing fewer putts on the "AM Side". When it warms up, I'll have to see how these fair with a little bit of wind added in.

I'll be curious to see how you make out in play with them... I was a Magic guy for quite a while but the wind eventually knocked them out of the bag. I made an amazing deuce in a tournament on a 200' putt though.

This is my worry as well...being that it seems to always be windy in the midwest. If it's an issue, I'll just go back to my trusty wizards

Been putting with a pair of older (2011-2012) black, velvety feeling SS Magics for a month or so now...might be making the change permanently...I really appreciate the extra float they have versus the Wizard and just got an E Magic to test as a thrower.

Very timely for this thread to resurface. Anyone notice Nikko was putting with the Magic at USDGC this year? He won in 2009 putting Magics. Wonder if he's trying to bring that mojo back. He was still using Wizards earlier this year, not sure when he switched to Magics. Maybe just for USDGC?

I noticed that too...his putting did look improved from tournaments past. I saw a post on Instagram that he's been liking the Magic for putting and especially the new hemp blends.

I could see Nikko's hyzer release working well with Magics.

The older stamp E-Magics are a dream to throw and the plastic has the best "hand feel" out there

Its odd, got a few Diamond Magics and they feel really BAD in the hand, lots of sharp edges and "flashing"
But all my EVO ones are just perfectly moulded and feels great

Yeah, that's what this one is...I've had a few Evo discs and it is probably the best grip on any premium plastic (personally). It's premo that grips like base plastic.

Yes the grip on the EVO is unmatched. . .and the grip on the Diamond kind of sucks

Have a few HD diamond drivers with ok grip, but have not found a Magic in HD yet

Trying to beat my EVO Magic in to a "mirage type of fligth" but it takes TIME to get there

Had all my US putters out this weekend ( Magic, Spin, Tui, Deputy, Mirage and even Sonic ) and the Magic is . . . .well "Magic"
But my EVO is not "as Magic" as an old beat in SSS Magic yet, but hoping to get the EVO to that spot soon

Really want to try the Shaman. . but hard to get one in Sweden so have to wait to my next US order
