Glad you asked. I didn’t want to write back and say these are some of the best putters ever………..but wow the glow wizard you guys threw in and Justin signed (kind of think that has something to do with it!) is my go to putter. I was sold on the clear evo’s but a little to floppy for me in certain situations plus I want to break em out first thing next season. So I found myself relying on the glow from outside the circle and the red soft magic inside 30ft. I have found the magic has more loft (glide??) to stay up where as the wizard will hold most any “laser line” I put it on. I canned a 50ft that I called before release and it just held until it went in. It has been getting dark early and hole 7 at sahm is tucked away so no chance of seeing the basket once you drive I told the guys (2nd shot) I was playing with “I can’t see the basket but listen and we will hear chains…money. Just yesterday hole nine same courses I throw a terrible drive and say to myself this looks like a three. Well I get in my straddle style box putt throw it so hard I kick my self in the butt with my jump putt foot and I am thinking no way!!! Yes way right in. I just raised a fist and keep going. I passed a group that wouldn’t let me through (didn’t say anything just went to the next hole) and I hear one of them say man he just hit that! So I give another fist pump. They keep talking about it and one says rejoice man!!! I just let loose all the way up to the hole spinning and giving fist pumps. Now looking back on that it had to be 60-65ft putt. Not that my putting is as solid as these few stories but I have to think the disc have a lot to do with it. Ever since starting out with a regular evo magic and progressing to the soft wizard and a couple variations of the magic (chalky black proto so sweet) and some organic wizards they have all been solid….but the glo fo sho (tell Justin good call) Sorry about the long story but I love this game and with great unique products and great companies it makes it that much funnier. Thanks a ton for the “Dave deals” and the personal contact. Door is always open in

High Gravity Material Improves Grip Performance While Retaining Golf Disc Flexibility
When the phrase "golfing" is mentioned, one's immediate reaction may be to imagine the standard ball and club game. However, a variation of this traditional game — called disc golf — adopts the use of density-modified plastic flying discs in place of balls and clubs.
Disc golf's popularity has rapidly grown over the last few decades to become a worldwide phenomenon, offering players an inexpensive and more accessible option to shooting an elusive hole-in-one. The object of the game — throwing a flying disc into a basket or at a target — has become easier with today's more durable and easier-to-grip discs.
Flying disc manufacturers have improved their products over the years to make them more thrower-friendly for novice and professional golfers. When Gateway Disc Sports, a supplier of high performance golf discs and accessories, wanted to upgrade their Shur-Grip™ product line, they turned to RTP Company for the ideal material.
"Our main goal was to find a material that would accept mineral additives to reach a density of 2.0," explained David McCormack, owner of Gateway. "At this particular density we are able to maintain the flexibility of our discs to adapt well to a variety of playing conditions. Other suppliers we tried could only achieve a density of 1.6, but RTP Company engineers were able to formulate a material that reached 2.0 easily."
Designers at Gateway selected an RTP 2800 B Series high gravity thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) compound as being best suited for their discs. The material has excellent surface abrasion and impact properties, which prolong the durability of discs during use while its thermoplastic elastomer nature provides necessary flexibility.
Gateway's products maintain consistently effective performance in all playing conditions — hot, cold, rainy, or dry. According to McCormack, polyurethane materials can become slippery with moisture, while their Shur-Grip™ discs remain easy-to-grip, providing more throwing control.
"When using mineral additives to modify density, we've discovered the softer thermoplastic elastomer components tend to migrate to the part surface during molding," said McCormack. "As a result, every disc we make has a tacky, easy-to-grip surface. This is a significant benefit for golfers, especially when playing in less-than-ideal conditions."
RTP Company's TPV-based thermoplastic elastomer material is also fully colorable over a wide spectrum — allowing for colors from earth tones to fluorescents making discs easy to spot on the course and appealing for a variety of player choices.
"We really found a perfect match with RTP Company," McCormack said. "With their material, batches were consistently accurate during every stage of production. This made it easy for us to create a quality product."
Gateway Disc Sports, based in St. Louis, manufactures and sells a unique line of golf discs and player-oriented accessories. For more information, visit www.gdstour.com
