Any questions about our discs, accessories, or services? Thrown the new Slayer yet, anyone?

Ask away, and we're happy to answer as best we can.

Are there any stiff HPP Elements? I like Elements and I like HPP plastic, just wish it was stiffer.

I third this. I may be getting into the Wiz soon and the "issues" have been a deciding factor in my putter choice. Warlock is in a close second.

John E McCray uses just about everything we make,, he's still throwing all Gateway and doing quite well ( like 20 pdga wins in the last 2 years.)

I have not seen Nikkos bag in a few months but he was using Wizards, Magics, Demons, blazes and Spirits when he played at Ozark.
Hopefully he will start using the slayers,, should be a decent control driver for him down wind,, ( he needs really overstable stuff for most shots).

George Smith Uses Wizards, demons and Illusions,, not sure what else these days,,,heard he liked the Slayer but he just got them last week.

About 70% of the discs we sell are putters and about 70% of those are Wizards.
Our Mid range line up is starting to do really well in terms of sales, the element, scout and warrior work great together as a set and cover the full range opf stability.

Never seen a new flippy wizard out of the box in the 9 years of making them, but I can only throw the wizard about 360 feet,,do you have a picture of one?

no thinking about a 3rd course called Spencer Davis,,, a course t hat is completely in the woods so we have a better shot at playing it year round ( wont have to cut down acres and acres of hay fields).

We had some logging done and I'm hoping its a good start to some of the new course.

Hoping to have a really huge event there next spring!

I'm pretty sure all of the wizards in NIkkos bag are from last years runs,,, one mans trashis another mans treasure.

but seriously what is it about the wizards you speak of are bad in your opinion?


Not sure what a proto Magic is,, is there a way to tell which ones are protos?

do you have a picture of one?

There are some fairly stiff pink ones on the shel;f right now,, how stiff do you like it?,,,is outside the rules ok???

have you thrown any of the firm E scouts??

I like firm stuff as well and wish it was ok to make more of our stuff firmer , but we try our best to manufacture within the rules,, sometimes a few stiffies get out and into someones hands.

Call or write the pdga and tell them you like it stiff :) and see if they will change the rules.

just for reference,,,id say 70% of all Star destroyers, max's, excalibers and tee-rexes do not pass the flex standard and most discs in the top players bags are too firm to pass the 27 lb rule.
