Should we start a "post pictures of your dinged up Wizard" thread?

I generally had Wizards in a pair where one is the putting putter and one is the driving putter. No real reason, but it is what it is. The putting putter generally was the retired driving putter, but one year I replaced both at the same time with a fresh Wizard. I ended up using those two as a pair for a few seasons, and it's comical how much more dinged up looking the putting putter is than the driving putter. They fly the same, though. If I lost either Wizard I could easily get by with just the other one, no problem.

I have the same general feeling about the Warlocks I use now. My "putting" Warlock is an Eraser and my "driving" putter is an S, but they went in the bag at about the same time and you could easily switch them and they would fly the same. The Eraser one just looks worse.

Good slightly OS driving putter, comfortable putting putter.
I think they might be. Gateway putters seem to have a little bit thinner flight plate and maybe a bit denser plastic compared to Innova base plastic.

I would be down for that. At first I thought we could just post in the regular Wizard thread, but that might get annoying for some. Why not just a "post your thrashed disc that you still actively use thread".

Give it two weeks and you'll be looking for a new putter for some stupid reason.
Yes, I sure did. I didn't however think the Warlock would be the one to take my DX Aviar P&A's place. I was pretty sure it would be the Warden.....or I would just stick with the Aviar P&A but in the R Pro plastic.

You may be correct...I guess we will just wait and see!

Thanks for your input!

It's been over two months and the Warlock is still holding strong in the bag. Actually I think I'm up to a total of 5 of them now. 2 at 173g, 2 at 174g (1 with comic art), 1 at 175g.

All are SSS except one of 174g ones. All yellow except the 175g one which is orange.

I bag the 175g one and use all the rest when I'm practicing my putts.

Anyone pick up any of the PWP Warlocks that are up currently on https://gatewaydiscsportsdirect.bigcartel.com/ Feel like I should pull the trigger. Occasionally, I want a little more glide and a hair less fade than my wizards. Do it, someone be the early adopter and let us know how they fly.

So did the "dinged up Wizard" thread take off?

I picked up one of the PW warlocks when they first ran them. I really like it but it definitely isn't something you'd want to use in the cold. It is basically a mcpro aviar.
