It has a lot to do with how a Wizard's flight plate is of variable thickness, being very thin in the center and thickening as it moves outward toward the rim. The thin stuff stretches out and stays after a while, causing the "clover".
Some do that. Others just plain warp.

I am sure this has been already been covered here, but I have not found the answer in my cursory search of this thread, so here goes...

I recently picked a new Wizard; first one I have bought in 3 years or so, it has the phrase "Medium Flex" stamped on top. On the bottom, below where the weight is written, "W12" is also written.

What does "W12" indicate?

Dave probably just needed to remind himself to get his taxes done.

I have a couple that also appear to be marked WI2. I agree that it's probably just the handwriting.

In my experience with a fairly warped SSS and a slightly bent SS wiz, they seem to fly the same even after they are warped.

I found a shiny, super grippy, and flexible black clovered/tacoed 174 Wizard (NO NAME or #, so its mine.) Its so broken in it just molds to my hand, I can pinch the rim, and full power throw it laser stable close to 300' with no fade. I've got a SS but can't grip it as well and turn it over, it feels in the hand like the rim is deeper than the black ones. I bought a black SSSS Wizard to replace my SSS floppy soft eraser putter but believe the SSSS with similar black grippy plastic will one day break into a similar feeling, beat up looking disc like I found.

Questions: I play heavily woods courses, can this 4S and the bad ass I found one take the trees? Are all blacks organics?

i've got a few of the oldschool supersoft wizards from around 2004 that are really floppy and have clovered on the top plate. i love putting with these but prefer to throw a stiffer wizard off the tee.

How do you guys decide which Wizard to use for your putting putter?

For the past half year or so I've been using one of the green proto organics at 166G. Floats a little better than the heavier ones, but after a while I started getting the idea that the lighter weight was fucking with my release for some reason. So I tried a less worn 171g organic Wizard, been working well but not noticeably better or worse. I have a pair of beat 175 SS wizards that fly nice and straight, would love to use either as a putter but they're a little floppier than I like.t

I've got so many Wizards it's hard to choose which ones to carry. I only need two, could easily do with just 1, but usually end up with 4 in my bag and feel bad because I'm leaving 5 sweet Wizards behind in my car =/

Stiff/tacky M. No flex in the flight plate. Heavy-ish because I push putt and it fights the wind better.

Yeah I prefer grippy but stiff too, but kind of debate going back to the 166 or going with a 175 or sticking with my 171.

I like the lighter putter because it stays in the air longer when putting.

I like lighter and softer for jump putts and approaches. You definitely can use the extra glide if you're using Wizards

I've been putting with 168s for about a year and I must say that I notice a huge difference compared to max weight.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!
