The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I've noticed that my medium wizard has aquired what i'd call dents on the top after what I guess it abuse? I'm not really sure if this has come from the amount of abuse that I've put on the disc because I do also use it for approach shots. Has anyone else encountered this or may it just be the mold that I got. I love my wizards and i'm afraid that when I buy my next one that i'll have the same outcome, because I feel the "dents" have greatly affected its flight pattern.HELP!

This tends to happen over a long period of abuse on a disc. I would recommend using one for putts and one for approaches. will help slow down the process.
I think just about all my Wizards have done that, but I haven't noticed a change in their flight pattern. However I have since started using an APX in the past few months. Wanted a less stable putter. Not because of the "dents"
Yeah, this occurs with all putters that I have seen that are used continuously. I actually have a putter that I got from Dave Mac that actually had the dimples right from the molding process. It is a really soft grippy plastic rubber. It makes for a nice place to place your thumb.
Like Mark says: A broken in Wizard is a thing of beauty!
Over time, the 'dents' in my SS wizard make it fit my hand like a glove.
I would agree with poeticlogic and carry several molds of the same putter in your bag.
I carry 3 of the same putter and use one for higher speed shots off the tee, one for lower speed approaches that might still hit something, and one that is only hitting chains
My wizard has the same dents. I thought at first it was a mistake or I had left them in the sun too long. Turns out, it's the same size dent as my thumb. Now that's the one I use for my main putter.
+100 to carrying several of the same putter. that way you can spread the use around a bit more evenly and keep your putters for longer. i usually carry three: straight/newer 'go-to' putter, broken in turnover putter, and 'schule' putter. The first two for me are proto wizards and the third is an E wizard, so if I hit a tree on a longer putt I dont take a nasty chunk out of my softer ones.

From my experience the med wizards pick up dents and crap really quick, much faster than the softer proto ones and look a lot more broken in a lot faster.
You need to earn your dents/waves/dimples:)

My eight year old Wizard. Don't leave home without it

buy the evolution plastic, last longer and dye's well.
I think the more dents the better the flight for a Wizard.
I never actually use mine for putting, I use mine for driving < 300 ft and 100 ft+ approach shots.
