Gateway Voodoo

I love my Gateway Voodoos, and I'm wondering if there is anyone else out there who rocks them? I don't see many people playing them on our local courses, which could just be a local thing. (I'm getting concerned that they may stop producing them or slowing production).
I know most people who like gateway putters use the Wizard (and for good reason it is a great disc as well, I just don't like the bead) and I know a ton of people who throw Magics, and I never see Warlocks (also curious why?).
So is there anyone else out there who throws the Voodoo? If so, what do you like? If not, what don't you like?

(I tried to search for a thread like this but failed so I hope I didn't just overlook it. I apologize if this is a repeat thread, I just want to satisfy my inquisitive nature.)

I've recently fallen in love with an anode for putting, but before that I had used SSS Voodoos since I began playing. Still love them for approaches, especially holes that drop off behind the basket. They hit and stick to the ground. Love it.

I'm all over sss voodoos, great flight and feel. Got 3 in my bag at all times.......

When they hit the ground, they stick. I use them for anything off the tee under 310. The only thing that sucks about the sss is they tend to get lumpy after use (I can't stand lumpy putters). I go throw atleast 3 or 4 a year because of that. All around great putter though. I know they don't sell that well for Gateway, but I don't see them going oop anytime soon.

I love the Voodoo too, but lately have been going between the Anode, Ridge, and Voodoo on the course. Not sure why, as a buddy pointed out to me that between putting practice and actual rounds, I've never thrown a single disc as many times as I've thrown the Voodoo (I have almost 20 in the garage! ). If I could mix the consistent feel and depth of the Ridge, the rim profile of the Anode, and the flight of the Voodoo, it would be the perfect putter for me.

good sized thread on Gateway putters in general

I always liked the Voodoo. In the hand it felt the most like a basic plastic Ion and for a stint I used it as a "putting Ion" and used the Ion for throwing.

I'm a pretty devout thrower of the Voodoo. Its shape feels awesome in my hand, and I love Gateway plastic. Right now I bag a floppy SSS and a pretty firm Superglow; still figuring out which feel I prefer.

Only putter that has ever come close to feeling as good in my hand is the Vibram Summit - similarly profile, but more shallow, so it fits even more easily into the hand. I'm trying to avoid switching though: the Voodoo does the job and then some, and is perfect for my barely-rotating lob putts, so switching to the Summit would only come from the (not very fruitful) desire for novelty.

My only complaint is that they can get pushed around in the windy New Orleanian environment. I recently bagged VPs for approach shots, so I now have a windy day putter. I suppose I could switch to putting exclusively with the VPs and cut down on a mold, but I like the feel of Voodoos, I'm familiar with them, and their superior glide is helpful for me, since I tend to throw too short.

Good, underrated disc. I'd like to get my hand on an Eraser Voodoo (just saw them advertised on facebook yesterday; not up for buying a stack of 5, though).

I got two SS VooDoos. They are the shizz, the bee knees, all that and bag of chips. I've had the same two for two years and in all honesty have no plans on retiring them any time soon. The plastic is just so choice, perfect amount of tack, not so grippy that its not like fly paper but not so slick that's like throwing wet champion plastic. I don't use them off the tee anymore as they have become way too flippy. Although if I have to throw a "patent pending" stance these are the discs I reach for cause it only takes like 10% power on the throw too get these babies to flip flat and just glide like 75ft. Greatest putters on earth!!!!!!

I'll agree with that one, our springs and fall's are pretty windy here and the Voodoo gets knocked about a bit in the wind. It takes a lot of practice to even attempt to compensate for that, especially around the 33 foot mark. It is worth the time though.

I just dig the clean release I get with the Voodoo, I haven't found anything else quite as nice.

I'm stoked there are other fans, that is awesome.
