they dont keep that grippy feel too long, they get alittle smooth with dust and wear.
They bounce out a bit.
the vairation in softness varies by temperature more than most putters ive tried. They get pretty soft in left in the sun long, and pretty stiff in the cold. (especially in black, which is all ive found in the weights I like)

Sounds like the cons of any pro-d/DX putter, I'll keep it in mind though

I agree. However, the gateway equivalent to pro d/dx, which I believe to be s, seems to outlast them. I will admit that my wizard has taken some hefty damage, but considering that I use it on every hole (as a putter) and sometimes drive with it, it has held up well.

I have heard good things about gateway "S", but has anybody found it to warp? of the 3 I saw in the store, all of them were warped a little, just little bubbles and dents on the top of the disc, and they were unused. I also have a Proto S wizard from a couple years back, and it is warped beyond recognition and I had used it strictly for putting (and rarely at that). It pretty much looks more like a JuJu than a wizard at this point. I'm not trying to knock the putter or the company but it is something I have noticed. Maybe its our wacky climate up here

i have three of four wizards in the "s" plastic that have warped. They look like clovers- but hasnt affected the flight much, one is beyond clovered and is only thrown over water, in hopes that it might go in-which gives me an excuse to order another. all of my proto wizards have warped to some degree. - all in "s" plastic.

s is definatly the most durable base plastic (unless you include millinium plastic as a base even though its just innova pro)

I still perfer baseline plastic for putters. Even if it means I replace them slightly more often, and if they need a bit of work sometimes.

I got an Original Roc from Mike S. and it's now my main putter, similar plastic to the KC Aviar plastic (super stiff) and it's the mold the classic roc was based off of (Original Roc has a slightly larger bead though) i love this thing for putting, its a bit faster than a putter, but it's a sniper. In the past 3 rounds I've hit over 5 100' putts with it and anything within 50' is almost as good as in... I'm hoping this accuracy wont wear off...

I just bought a Black Proto E-Wizard at 180g off of ebay. Not exactly PDGA legal, but I couldn't pass up black evolution plastic and a 180 might be a perfect weight for me. I mean, what's a few grams? :D :wink:
