They did make firm Wizards a long time ago. They were like porcelain plates.

A serious answer would be helpful, thanks
Like Grunge alluded to, if I recall, it's a safety thing. Discs have to withstand a certain amount of tension and flexibility. Otherwise the PDGA feels there is a risk of shattering against a tree or other hard surface and that can cause flying shrapnel.

Basically, a disc needs to taco rather than shatter.

This might be a duh thing, but what about mediums of the other three putters: Voodoos, Warlocks, and Magics?

how is something too stiff to be legal when the mold itself is legal. Seems to me like the mold as a whole would be illegal. Instead the plastic itself being illegal...

I think they sit in the same boat as KC Aviars or any other stiff disc - nobody brought it up to PDGA yet.

Eff this! I have two medium magics on the way I was going to use as my main putters. Shrapnel? Really!? These things aren't grenades.
