Default Gateway Voodoo Plastics

I currently have a few organic Voodoos, and I love them, but the plastic is getting beat in exceptionally fast. I was going to reorder more, but I was unsure what plastic to get. My friend has a few E-series, and I like the flexibility they have, but they feel slick to me. Consequently, I've been looking at S or SS, as SSS sounds like it will be much softer than I would like. Does anybody know how those plastics compare to the E-series? I was also thinking of the chalky prototypes, but wasn't sure if that plastic would hold up any better than the organic.

The E-series is very slick and seems to have alot of blow throughs. It is quite durable though. I personally love the SS Voodoos. I would equate the SS plastic to the soft magnets. The SSS isn't as floppy as you would think.

my SS plastic is getting beat pretty quick though...i've got several nicks and dings in a putter that's been in use for maybe 2 dozen rounds...and some SSS plastic is floppy, at least my Warlock SSS is pretty floppy

My SSS wizard is not that floppy. I like it.

My S VooDoo has held up very well since I got it in February, and I bang away with it from 100' on in.
Yes, I have killed a few trees with it. I prefer the S over a Medium.

I feel ya on the organic wearing in fast. My organic Wizard is already pretty well beat up. I have a Wizard in M, S, and Warlock in S and two Voodoos in SS. I like the SS better for putting ... it feels more rubbery, but not floppy. The S has a really nice grip to it and I like it for approach shots and short drives.

Glow plastic in the Voodoo is awesome. It softens up but doesn't become extremely flexy like SS or SSS, yet it's not stiff like M. I have tried basically all of Gateway's plastic except E for putters and I think this is the way to go for this particular disc.

Sounds like S or SS is the way to go then. Does anybody have any experience with the chalky proto plastics? I got the impression they should be about the same stiffness, but stickier/grippier feel to them.

Does the glow plastic hold up pretty well in regards to dings and such? my only experience with glow was on innova's teebird and after putting it into a tree solidly once I had to throw it away because it was bent so badly.

Nothing like Innova glow plastic. That stuff sucks and feels bad.
I think Gateway's glow is very durable. It will be far more durable than SSS or SS for sure.
It breaks in slower than SS and SSS, but fast enough to feel good without having to throw it at trees to break it in.
