Default Best gateway putter plastic.

I'm looking for something sorta like Pro-D, just not so imparable to damage. Not really floppy but still a little grip for the chains...I'm thinking of the Wizard or Warlock.

Im a big Magic fan... I love the organic plastic a lot more then what I originally thought, it has great grip. The SS (super soft) is also really nice as well.. a lot of people like the SSS (super stupid soft) but its almost too much for me, it seems like I get a better release with the Organic Magic (S plasticesque) then with the SS Magic.

I would say Soft is close to what you are looking for.

The soft wizards I have are very close in feel to my sons pro-d challengers as far plastic and stiffness feels.

Does it retain its flight characteristics more than a Pro D would? My pro d challenger is only 2 months old and it has quite the number of dings in it which makes it a little rougher in the hand and the flight path changes slightly every few weeks.

From what I can tell my worn one has become more stable and the other less used flies pretty much the same. The worn one is mostly worn on the bead. Other than that the plastic is holding well for a putter.

Super soft wizard feels like Pro D. Maybe even slightly more durable.

You could also try out medium flex plastic , it's a bit stiffer but I like the grip and in wizards it drives well and holds up long.
