I've swapped putters enough to not beat them. Ions are so durable that they have not had the chance to break in and i will mot likely switch to Anodes. Have two 168s coming up one medium one soft for putts to add to the driving 175 and 171 (no noticeable flight difference so far) mediums. I expect these to stay in new condition for a long time. So new for me. If nothing better existed and i was forced to use the Wizard it would be lighter beat one to fly like a lower glide Ion/Anode. I prefer that type of straight glidey flight path for straight shots or mildest of pitches inserted into otherwise normal laser putts. With little to no fade. If it weren't for the glide the Wizard could be made to fly very close to some Ions in a suitable wear level.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I just put in a new KC Aviar after about 2 years of trying to find more like it and I did recently. Since I put it in I've played 4 rounds and my putting has been excellent. Even with other putters, so I know I'm just getting back in the groove, but it's been eating the chains.

beat to hell D-P2 inside 30 or when I "need to finish the job," newish D-P2 for outside of that...


kind of sounds reversed from what I read but it works for me.

I throw IONs, they don't really beat in, so...

I do have a particular attachment to two of my older ones though.

I've putted with the same 3rd run soft 167 opaque Ion since they were released and its still more stable as the newer SS wizards my buddy putts with. It is noticeably less stable than the backup 167s I practice putt with but my 167 is my goto BH/FH under 150' and turnover putter drives. Its not as seasoned as I'd like it to be so it'll continue to get all upshot and putter work for at least another year or more at this rate. When I can aim at the pole just outside the circle, putt it flat, and hit a chain link then I'll put another one in the bag for the upshot work... maybe I should start practice putting in the driveway :roll:
