Why not just label them 1-10 based on your firmness/hardness scale?

No UPS guy ever came to the house. Talked to the wife and she says she never talked to a UPS guy either. I thought UPS just left packages on the front porch and didn't require delivery confirmation.

nothing :wink:
I've lived in a couple neighborhoods that UPS would leave a note saying that I could pick my package up at the distribution center or be home when the driver is there. I think attempted not known has to do with an address that is close but not correct.

Is it possible to buy a box of these discs? My stable stash is running low and I need to purchase a big batch that are all relatively the same and these sound like the ones I've been looking for.

Let me know.

Thanks.

Yes, just call the shop and they'll send them out. This is generally how I buy putting Wizards (5 or 10 at a time).

So I got the wizards in and threw them at lunch. They are much closer to the older wizards that I love than the other newer wizards I have. I got 3 glows, 2 are med stiffness and one is soft stiffness (in gateway's rating system). The two meds are a little more stable than the soft and handle headwind better. They held a hyzer into a slight headwind whereas the soft one popped to flat from the gentle hyzer. The only shot that I throw with my old ones that the new ones don't really like to do is hold an extended hyzer. The new ones want to flip up to flat where the old ones will hold the line. I'm playing dubs tonight and will be throwing one of these in the bag to test more on the course.

Also I got in 3 slayers, two are flippy and one is hella beefy, like the old flat spirits beefy. Very odd.

I think the difference between the older and recent Wizards has more to do with OAT resistance, and dissipation of wobble during flight. If you're throwing with a clean release, you'll never turn a Wizard over. OAT is the only way to turn over any Wizard I've ever thrown (ask my wife: I own a ton of Wizards!). Some are more over-stable, and others are just purely stable. (Note also that its much much harder to throw with a clean release when you're throwing a putter 300'+.)

i've always wondered about how a lower profile gateway putter would fly. something along the lines of an xd, maybe a little more stable than one though.

How would you say these recent runs compare to the recent 12x Aviars? I love the feel of the Wizard but a lot of the ones I tried felt bulky in the shoulder and exceptionally deep in the rim.
