Pros - Super straight right out of the box
Cons - Holds ANY line, not stable at all
Compares to - Polecat w/ little more speed
For a disc golf beginner there is nothing more important than accuracy, especially when it comes to putters. Gateway Disc Golf has long been known for their expertise when it comes to putting. The Wizard is favorite among many pros for its dependability and versatility. Often overlooked is the
Magic, a less stable putter from Gateway.
The Magic's "Magic" lies in its ability to hold any line. It's outer edge is a little more blunt than a Wizard, resulting in a more straight flight path. In fact, the Magic has been compared to a well-worn Wizard...which is a very good thing in my book.
While the Gateway Magic Putter will indeed hold a straight line it is not particularly good in the wind or for longer approach shots. Unfortunately, the Magic's ability to hold a line makes it vulnerable when conditions are not ideal. As a result the Magic tends to be less popular among seasoned players than Aviars or Wizards. While the Magic will not replace my go-to putters, it is a really nice choice for beginners or those with trouble putting consistently with more stable discs.
