Anyone have a Voodoo and a Roach lying around? Trying to find the disc closest in profile to the Roach, but beaded. (Not planning on switching putting putters, just toying with the idea.)

I have both...but the VooDoo is at the house. If someone doesnt beat me to it, I will post profile pics tonight.

The Roach has a flater top, but a more rounded edge, best to my memory.

The Roach took the VooDoos spot in my bag. Too much overlap for both, in my opinion...unless one is wanting Gateway plastic for driving

The BigZ (sometimes Ti) and straighter-to-turning Jawbreaker are all great driving plastics for me. Roach aint going anywhere.

I need a bead on my putters, but don't like the feel of a bead for throwing. Just toying with the idea of replacing the Challengers with a "beaded Roach".

The VooDoo is a better feeling disc, IMHO, than the Challenger......

I like small beads. Thats why my putting putter is a soft Electron Envy.

I use my JB Roach for upshots and outside the circle floaters( less chance of the notorious Envy rollaway). That was the same duties the VooDoo served for me....if that helps any

try the focus. don't quote me on this but I believe the roach is basically a beadless focus.

I don't know if I have a Voodoo anymore but I know I have a Pu which uses the same bottom as a Voodoo.

Focus and Voodoo would both be fairly similar, I think the bead on a Focus is bigger though.

Giant profile pic

The disc in the middle is a Big Z Roach, on the right is a Plutonium (same bottom as a Voodoo). The disc on the left is a Macana which I thought might be similar but it's more shaped like a Wizard and you can't see it anyway (white on white). If you can't see the link you may need to be my friend on here, just friend request me.

The Roach has a fairly unique profile. The underside of the rim is straighter and sharper than I remembered.

I went to PIAS yesterday to pick up a Roach to piss off SD86 but couldn't find a color/weight that was right. Wound up with a JB Focus, dang it feels nice.
