SizeEdit

The height of the wizard generally determines the wand that is drawn to them. The shorter the person, the shorter the wand; the taller the person, the longer the wand. This is based on full adult height, not necessarily how tall a person is when they obtain their wand. The following list is compiled based on the shortest and longest canon wands (Umbridge's and Hagrid's).

Note: The height-to-length ratio is not supposed to be steady throughout the list.

  • 5'2" = 9 inches
  • 5'8" = 10 inches
  • 5'10" = 11 inches
  • 6' = 12 inches
  • 6'2" = 13 inches
  • 6'4" = 14 inches
  • 7' = 15 inches
  • 12' = 16 inches

FlexibilityEdit

This measures the ease of casting and power behind the magic. Flexible wands are easier to cast but have less power, while inflexible wands are much stronger but more difficult to cast.

  • Whippy - easiest to cast, least powerful
  • Swishy
  • Flexible
  • Springy - medium difficulty, medium power
  • Sturdy
  • Inflexible
  • Rigid - hardest to cast, most powerful
