Thanks in advance.


A while and which ever one feels best in your hands. I prefer S or a soft medium.

SS wizards beat in kind of quick depending on how soft your ss is. i have one thats chalky and soft and it broke in to straight/understable in a couple of months, but it hit plenty of trees to get it there. i like the medium-ish Ss and soft-ish Ms for driving, but that's just me. on the other thread a couple of dudes are touting the Es as good driving putters, but that's kind of a hot button topic. never thrown one my self.

Wizards are all over the place when it comes to the softness scale. I have SS that are more like S and some that are more like SSS. Wear depends how much you play, the plastic and how rough you are with them. I'd just use it more often to speed up the wearing in. Smacking trees and stuff like that might speed it up, but then you get less even wear

As far as driving, most people like mediums or firms if they can find them. I throw stiff mediums for all my duties, but I have a lot of wizards all over the spectrum.

I thought my Tantiric Sex Cult was the best title, even thought the thread didn't live for too long. People who don't throw 150 putters don't know what they're missing. :?

I have a 150 Wizard in my bag that I use for low ceiling putts or ones where my arm movement is severely limited. It is also the straightest disc in my bag; I can rip it as hard as I want and it goes laser beam straight with no fade.

I like max weight stiff, grippy putters for driving. Right now my favorite is a 175g Glow Wizard that feels like Medium plastic and is slightly understable from a couple years of use.

I use these really nice grippy and somewhat stiff 170g Eraser Wizards for putting, but am looking for something that doesn't clover as much and isn't quite as soft in really warm weather.

I've got an old firm Wizard that is the stiffest disc I've ever had. It has the small Wizard stamp and says Wizard on his cape. I use it for putting only and love the sound it makes when it hits the chains.

But hate the sound it makes when it hits anything else.
