I gotta give it up for the voodoo. I've only had about 2 throws with one for about a '100 ft layups but damn those shits feel nice in the hand.

I was driving with a Soft "S" Proto. It was buttery smooth...give it a touch of hyzer, watch it flip up flat...and stay straight all the way down the fairway and land flat.

I just picked up a medium band stamp from MS to try and use as a driver and see if it can replace my Wizard. Smooth is the perfect way to describe the flight on this disc.

I have some mediums at home...but they are way too hard to drive with. I could probably drive nails with the mediums I have.

My Organic Voodoo is about 9 months old now and has broken in very evenly. There is no clovering on the flight plate, but the bead has completely worn off. From 150' and in it holds whatever line I put on it until it hits the ground. It floats in so slowly that I feel like I can run the basket every time without having to worry about blowing by. I've got 9 Organic backups and a couple of other nice ones, so I'm going to be set for years. For my style this is the perfect putter.

Had a heck of a time deciding between the Wizard and the Voodoo.

It came down to the Voodoo's nice feel in my hand and the confidence boost that gave. Seems to release a lot cleaner and require less effort to get to the basket.

Wizard is a fine disc, but for me the Voodoo ended up being the stronger putter.

Your results may vary - there are a lot of fine putters out there.

Got some S and SSS Voodoo's today to mess with. I do need something a little more glidey than my Wizards and I think this may be a nice compliment to the Wiz. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

Give it a little time for the glide...I have some new Voodoos and when I throw them they don't glide nearly as much as my broken in one despite being identical. Flex it a little in your hand and the sooner the flashing/mini-bead wears down the better.

funny this post was brought back as i just bought some voodoo's. But my question is this; I got some redish orange soft voodoos and on the inside rim (where you would but your fingers pads on a power grip) they are not flat, they have a bump in t mheiddle. So is that normal?

I just bought some wizards like that too. I think it is just gateway being gateway.

I have recently switched from Rattlers to a combo of Magics and Voodoos.

The Magics are the "prototype" black ones and the Voodoos are "first run" black ones. I think they are both SSS. Thats what is written on the bottom in marker at any rate.

I KNOW I am going to loose these discs at some point in time because they are black and kinda hard to find sometimes. I wanted to know how other Voodoos and Magics fly, if there is a difference or anything.

I really like these discs!

I throw the voodoo out around 250 (max) and the magic around 225+.

Thanks!

Not to be rude, but does it matter that the Voodoo is not PDGA approved?


Edit: Never mind, I went to the PDGA site and saw that it was approve back in March of this year.

i am cursed by voodoos. i carried it for maybe only 2-3 months but never made a putt in with it. i used it as an approach disc and it was awesome. but as far as actually going into the basket it was a whole different story. it was such a disappointment that i just took it out and switched to a wizard for longer putts and approachs....so i am def. cursed by the voodoo....never to throw it again

I have been carrying two Voodoos; the medium one I use for drives and approaches has been bad and I decided to punish it. I replaced it with a Wizard today, and am going to roll with that for a bit until the m Voodoo apologizes to me.
