Glow Wizards

Postby Eric O » Sat May 13, 2006 9:54 am

Picked a couple up last night. Wondering if I should expect anything different versus regular S plastic on the durability front.

An interesting thing about these discs: Got discs in different weights, both glow plastic, and they have a distinctly different surface feel. One is kind of chalky/tacky and another is super smooth.

Also one of them is ghost white and with no stamp. It looks awesome.

out of the newer plastics the ultra firm chalky ones are very durable.

they are also more high speed stable than any i have thrown and a little bit more low speed overstable.

they do have less glide from most of the other wizards i've thrown.

I recently ordered my second batch of practice wizards from Gateway, and they threw in a 165g Glow...and the stamp is the Steal Your Face logo surrounded by Dancing Bears! :P :D (Two of the designs used by the Grateful Dead)

Mine is the super-smooth version...definitely feels different than my other S plastic wizards in any firmness...almost rubbery instead of plasticy. It'll take some getting used to, and I'm not sure yet if it'll get much play time other than practice rounds.

It definitely glows like a dream though, that's for sure. I also just picked up a glow Roc from a buddy...all I need now is a glow Teebird, and it's time for night-golf! :)

Of the two I have, one of them fits this description. It is fairly firm though. I was surprised to find that between the two, this is the one I usually prefer and do most of my putting and approaches with. It is also in more of a pale white rather than the usual yellowish color and it glows about 5x better. I will bust out the other one only for running long putts where the 4g lighter weight gives the extra glide.

I may have gotten lucky. Mine sounds like the same plastic based on color and surface feel, but it is pretty stiff and holds a line very well.

mine lives in a pond now, It was a disc that would flip up like a soft wizard sometimes, but not as consistant. I just throw Med and Soft S wizards now
