I keep about 4 wizards, two for putting (SSS or RF) two for approaching (S or $), a Zone, and an Envy. Once I start beating in some of these Wizards I'll probably take the Envy out.

I'm really quite surprised that there aren't more Wizard throwers that use a magic for their understable putter slot (if they have a spot for that)

I prefer a Voodoo in that spot, or even a brokedown Wizard.

For that role, if I am close enough and need left to right action I just flex either a Wizard or my Roach. Or if I am far enough out I'll anny on a short approach one of my mids or zones depending on the line needed. Or, I'll just flick something in there and which disc I use is dependent on how drastic a left to right I need.

Organic Wizard, Organic Voodoo. SSS Voodoo, and S Wizard. I normally put with the organic wizard and keep the rest for putting practice before and after playing courses.

KC Pro Aviar- Straight with fade drive and approach
Yeti Pro Aviar (very beat)- Straight to turnover drives. Most short drives in the woods or tight windows
DX Aviar P&A (very beat)- Long/jump putts, short approaches of all kinds, short drives that need to turn quickly
SS Warlock- putting putter(s)

Swan (I have no clue which version) - short straight approaches, understable duties
Macana - main putter, also for approach
Shield - throwing putter for longer shots or windier conditions
Harp - special duties

Usually in soft or medium plastic.

The Swan might be replaced if any of the other putters are broken in enough to use at that spot.

I'm just so used to the feel of throwing wizards, and I have such a big stash of old beat ones. It doesn't make sense for me to throw something that feels different if I've got a beat wizard that does the same thing. Also most of my beat wizards have been around so long that I know them better than any new disc. Familiarity wins.

Because it really doesn't take that long to break a wizard in to a turnover disc. Even a fresh wizard can hold a beautiful anny if you hit your angles correctly. The only thing that takes a while is to get it into a true understable slot, where it actually flips to turnover from hyzer. I have bagged a flippier putter in a tourney round for that purpose before, there was one specific tee shot that I just didn't have a flippy enough wizard for. But a couple months later I was set.

I totally get it. It was just a little surprising to me is all. I cycle judges the same way (or at least they would cycle if I played a lot more often)
