The White is nice too for summer play and can be dyed colors with nylon penetrating dyes.

That hemp/1970's cactus green is a color that Gateway has made for years. My dad has an Element-X in that 1970's cactus green color from 2004 or 2005. I forget the replacement disc for the Elemant-X. Also made a number of the hard and firm baseline plastic for discs in the 2000's with a dark red that can get lost in the right areas of the USA, mostly for the Wizard. My dad's unknown baseline plastic stiff Wizard from 2004 is that dark red almost burgundy color, it is one of his two driving putter molds.

Replacement for the Element-X was the Karma, that one has since been phased out after they introduced the Prophecy to fit in between the Element and Warrior, now that mold is sold as the AGL discs Magnolia.

Just a quick observation...I just bought my first brand new Wizards from a random dude selling them at my local course. He said they are Hemp blend and the disc is white with obvious grit texture. They feel good and firm I also left them in my truck yesterday while at work and when I got back into my truck the cab smelled like burnt toast "bonus info".

They putt amazing and I would like to know if anyone can help educate me on which other blends have similar feel...to these hemp blends that is? I've always stayed clear of these putters in the past because, honestly, I hate the name. But I can easily see why there is a dedicated following behind these putters as Ive tinkered with them a little this year.

Interesting, the only reason I didn't order a 2-pack of the Hemp blend is that Gateway says they are between SS and SSS in flex. My main in-circle putter is a relatively firm SS, but every SSS I've felt has been too flexible.

How flexible is the flight plate?

Lol, Im not a credible judge here. But having handled an SSS before I can positively say they are firmer. I could see SS firm but mine feel somewhat firmer. But Ive not fondled a true Wizard firm before.

Anyone throw the diamond cherry bomb wizards?

I am contemplating picking up a pair from gatewayunderground. I have mostly only thown variations of the suregrip plastic.

I guess how does their stability and glide compare to suregrip?

More (over)stability and less glide. Almost always.

The new(er) Eraser Wizard with the mini-stamps are awesome. I like the Eraser Wizards but the most recent run with the standard stamps were a bit stiff. The mini-stamps are a little softer (and shallower, which I like).

I’m waiting until they release glow hemp Wizards before I order a few. They teased on Facebook that they might run some, and now they’re selling a hemp glow Prophecy. So it’s just a matter of time.
