This is probably dumb, but I jut rub a little dirt on there to cut down on the tackiness. Not a bunch and I clean off my fingers after I do it so I don't have the dirt on my fingertips, just a film of it on the underside of the putter.

I love the Warlock, just bought a new one (SSS) today. I like the beadless feel, especially for closer putts.
My first one I received as a Christmas gift about 10 years ago. It was autographed, but I never bothered to look up the PDGA # b/c I didn't watch disc golf at the time and wouldn't know anyone. When I finally did last year I found out it was Nikko Locastro, was pretty stoked

Really digging the Soft and PW Warlocks for throwing. The Soft I have is a great stiff KC Pro- like blend that is only going to get better with age. It's definitely Wizard stability but carries better and has forward fade instead of a dumpy finish. The PW is straighter and more workable but has a noticeably faster feel. It was working well for longer standstill approaches.

They finally ran the Warlock in Diamond, bet those are going to be nice driving putters.

Been getting in a bad habit of losing my throwing putters but it means I've been trying out a lot of plastic. Lost my nicely seasoned Soft into a creek and picked up a 170 g Soft. Great feeling plastic again and have had some of my longest putter throws with it. Seems like the drop in weight helps the glide and the stability is comparable to a max weight, with the exception of headwind throws. Been also experimented with some of my SS's in the throwing stack as a flippy thrower.

I threw my nine-year-old Warlock into a sewer. Creve Coeur Park has an old abandoned sewer system from some long-ago development on the course, and they have a basket set right behind an opening to the sewer. From the tee you can't see it; it's a short placement so I drove with the Warlock and it went right down in the sewer. I could see it, but it was too deep and I couldn't reach it. I was on a time crunch and had to leave it, and I don't live in St. Louis so I posted a "Farewell Warlock" thing to facebook. A guy I played league with 24 years ago who I see maybe once ever two years in passing got some equipment and fished it out of the sewer for me. Disc golfers can be awesome.

Of course now I have to run unto him to get it back, so that might take some time. I broke out an old "it says soft but you know it's medium" Warlock from when they were not selling mediums to take it's place while it is visiting my friend.

Between rain and quarantine, the only disc I've thrown in three weeks is the Warlock. I forget how the other discs fly.

Picked up some fresh Warlocks since these days it's backyard putting and field practice.
The Super Softs feel just like my 7-8 year old beat in ones. Great grip and just the right amount of give on the flight plate for my thumb without being floppy.
The Firm is exactly what I want for a throwing plastic. Hearty feeling without being a dinner plate. Just enough give to get a secure grip. Also a nice smooth dome that will help with glide.

Interesting find on Marshall Street. The X-Out Super Soft Warlocks all have an old stamp that does not even call out the plastic type. I had one that I bought used circa 2013 (great thrower, unfortunately lost) that was penned SOFT on the back w/ the horizontal PDGA approved tooling. I reached out to MST for some more details and knowing Gateway it may just be current stock with the old stamp.
Picture here, when pasted it was enormous.
