voodoos are sweet! and pretty stable, i dunno how they putt though but i know how they drive and they are pretty money discs.

what is the drop ratio on a voodoo compared to a wizard? (in a putting sense)

I'm not sure I can give you a number, but the Voodoo drops a little less than an Aviar P&A, and a lot less than a Wizard. It drops less than all the other Gateway putters.

Mike,

You know me...I absolutely love my Voodoo's!! Initially, it only worked well for putts outside the circle. I was still using my warlocks until I played my first round of night golf. Since I was limited on glow sticks, I decided to just use the voodoo. Well, after I hit an 80 footer on 14 at coach, and every subsequent putt after that, it became my exclusive "go to" putter.
1 medium and 3 soft, all very firm...now, I just need to learn how to drive with 'em!!

My putting increased 10 fold when I switched from the Warlock to the Voodoo. I have never thrown a straighter putter in my life and my confidence increased because of that. With the increased speed and glide I can simply release it from my hand knowing its going to be dead nuts straight without turning over or fading at the end.

I'm putting a set of Proto Magics for straight putts -- I like the straight Aviarish flight, and the plate is nice and firm, flat, and super duper griptastic. Then I've got a stiff Wiz for plate stuff, and a softer Glow SS for spin stuff.

Any thoughts/testimony that would convince me how a Voo-doo set is better? Or if I like some fadey Wiz with a side of stiff Magic straightness, am I set as-is?

I tried the Voodoo a little, not intensely... I wasn't really blown away but it wasn't bad at all.

My personal guess would be that it takes me about 15% more effort to achieve a similar arc with a Wizard, if that makes any sense.

The Voodoo floats in the air better than the magic and flies on a truer line. It is more HSS without being more LSS. Even my beat putter resists turn and turns slower than a magic. I really didn't like the feel of that thick squarish nose of the magic...the Voodoo is symmetrically rounded and feels kind of like a handle. I love this feel.

Zam - I have Voodoos and they do make great drivers/up shots, but I still prefer the magic for longer/straight putts. For me, at least, the voodoos fade harder at the end than the magic. The magic just holds a line forever. It has just enough stability to fall back flat at the end of a long slightly anhyer putt, but not enough to fade back left. The voodoo seems to do what the warlock was supposed to do - act like a beat wizard. Just holds almost whatever line you throw it on. The warlock is still overstable at LS.

I think it's worth throwing, but dunno that it would replace a magic if you liked the magic. The rim is thick like the magic though. I like the feel of the small bead more than no bead. I putt like crap with the voodoo though.

So which one of you bought the 3 lighter weight medium organic voodoos from disc golf center? I almost bought them last night but I was tired and wanted to sleep and came back this morning and they were gone. :(

Ya, it was a little wet last night...Willie, Smooth, and myself shot about 13 holes. The ground really soaked it up well and I came home dry!!

Anyway, my first gateway putter was the magic and I absolutely counted on the straight flight. Except for wizard, I've found that all the beadless gateway putters will fly straight for me. I prefer the voodoo because of it's upshot capabilities along with the straight putts.

Picked up a medium and a SS Voodoo today to go along with the soft I already had, but I still suck at putting too much to actually decide between them and the Wizards yet. :lol:

My medium Voodoo is tasty! I've been loving it so far. I picked it up as a complement to the SS one I already had... I was actually shipped a soft one by mistake - if that one was either a tad bit more or less firm, I may have kept it, and rolled with 3 voodoos.

The voodoo is the shizzle...I was out playing Walnut Ridge last night and was crushing my Voodoo's on shortish drives(330 and under). Things were clicking last night with the putter and short drives. I think I missed one putt inside of 35 last night.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.
