Need help identifying a mystery disc

Postby ParanoidPiranhasDave » Fri Jun 30, 2006 8:06 am

Okay, so my buddy came into possession of a mystery disc the other day, and I'm curious as to what it is.

It's a hard black putt/approach with no graphic other than the Gateway script logo on the top.

I'm thinking it's a Firm Wizard, but I can't find another picture of it anywhere, so I wanted to make sure.

I don't think gateway makes a putter besides the wiard and odyssesy so I would agree that it is a wizard.

The Wizard is the only putt and approach disc that Gateway makes in one solid piece of plastic (my understanding of the Odyssey discs is that they are all two types of plastic). As for the firmness, you'll just have to compare it to other Wizards to find out. I have several Wizards that all feel the same, but some are labled "Soft" and some "Meduim." My thoughts are that the actual label of the firmness doesn't matter at all as long as you like how it feels and works.

There is the wizzard and there was the chief, although i couldnt tell you what the difference between the two are. i dont believe the chief was too firm though, so you most likely have a wiz.

The Chief is just a Wizard in H plastic. The plastic is shinier and feels a bit more rubbery than S plastic. I had one and they aren't firm at all. They're really domey and pretty good approach discs.

Is it's chalky? If so, it's a "midnight" wizard which comes in medium, soft, super soft.

If it's not chalky, it's just a black wizard. I have seen two black wizards which I think were released not to far from each other. I have seen many black wizards that are not chalky.

Neither of them have any stamps.
