Wizard Replacement?
« on: October 13, 2009, 07:58:55 AM »
Hey All,

Any recommendations on a good replacement for a Wizard in the current line? Was thinking Copperhead or Diamondback. I have a friend that is looking for something comparable.

Thanks!

The Copperhead is the current equivalent. The Diamondhead is not. Different coverstock. Reaction could be similar, but I wouldn't bank on it.

Copperhead for sure! SMOOOOOOOOTH...

The Diamondback will be cleaner through the heads with a bigger move late.

thanks for the recommendation. i had been looking at the 3 and thought the copperhead best fit the bill, but wanted to bounce this off some others to get a general consensus.

thanks again!

Depends on how the Wiazrd is drilled. Copperhead is one choice, but it has a lower RG will be a tad rollier than the Wizard - good for replacement on oilier shots. If you have a weaker drilling on the Wizard, you might also consider an Avalanche Solid (same coverstock), drill it stronger and rough up the surface as needed. An option for medium lanes.
