I love wizards however when the magic came out I made the switch. I like it better but I can't throw hard or it will turn right over. The wizard is better for that 100-150 shot I think. SSS is what I like the best for putting. I hope this helps.
I used a Magnet for the first year that I played and loved it, I swore I would never use another...Until I tried my SSS Warlock. It is essentially a Wizard without the bead, and it comes out of my hand clean every time. I don't believe that I could ever replace this disc in my bag.
I personally don't like the way the Magic or Voodoo comes out of my hand for putting; however, I love to throw a Voodoo, they're nice and stable. My wife LOVES her SSS first run Voodoo and putts really well with it, she throws an E Voodoo for short straight upshots and does great. Magics are indeed less stable, and not for me, but I will say that some of the best players I know putt with the Magic. I really think when making a decision like this, you should try em all and go with what feels best for your game. In my opinion, Gateway putters are the best. Tried ALOT of different putters and none have compared. Hope this helps.
Off to St Louis tonight for two C-tiers this weekend, we'll definately be stopping at the Gateway store. Probably gonna buy a new backup putter : )
I just bought a wizard about a week ago to try out. I had been using a jk aviar which had been doing well for me, but it just didn't feel right in my hand. The wizard took some getting used to since it has a harder fade than I'm used to, but I get a really consistent release with it. I even had an ace run on a 280' hole with it the other day.
magic or wizard ? split the difference and go warlock. still can't decide? buy one of each.i use a clear evo wizard for ups a soft magic for all putts and anny ups and watch my little brother slay them all with a ss warlock i backed my car over when he left his bag in my driveway
been throwin couple super soft wizards for month or two now and i love them. i really can get some reliable distance and accuracy from tee or upshots up to 250'- 275'. the grip of these ss wizards is awesome for this. i do fear that i will have to graduate to softs or mediums for the hot texas summer for putting though. the ss's will prolly be too gummy in the heat.
I threw a set of 175g black Magics, they did fly like bricks but in a way I liked, not very flippy for me at all, the major problem I found was the way they beat , they develope lumps and waves and dents , and are black obv.
