The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
It's a tad bit harder to tell here in michigan being winter and all... disc testing is far more difficult. I mention this because I have been testing a crystal Z Buzzz and it's pretty stable. X Buzzz'z are freaking bad to the bone. They are the best of both worlds. I love D buzzz'z but have to replace them a couple times a year, depending on the blend. Same with X to a degree but they get flippy and change less. If you want an understable buzz go X. a little extra beat in will reap much reward and hold the same lines for a good period of time. Some of the newer run flat top Z buzzz's are as good as first run or 2nd first runs. I tried a roc out and really found nothing too spectacular about it. I have 2 Z's and one X flip buzz at all times and use them in the spring / summer / fall as much as my drivers. Winter is a little different because you have to bump up your shots.... summer buzz shot = winter stalker / xl shot.... etc
I'm not sure why a description of the stability levels of Buzzz's would win you over. Most players get won over to a Buzzz by first watching someone else throw one then trying one themselves. So if you haven't already, borrow a friend's and try it.
Although I have tried all the different Buzzz models and plastics I'm not sure how to rank the relatively small differences in stability and really it doesn't matter much. Buzzz's are designed to go straight. While any Buzzz can shape a line, it is essentially a straight flying, easily controllable, midrange disc.
Between pure candy plastic (Z) and the candy blends (Crystal, ESP, FLX and X) the biggest difference is how they feel in your hand. Personally I prefer Z due to how it feels and it tends to mold flatter than the others. A flatter disc is not necessarily more overstable than a domey disc but it feels differently in the hand and to me, better. Among the plastics, D breaks in the fastest (by a lot), followed by the blends, followed by Z. Any of the candy Buzzz's will last until you lose it and become more valuable to you as it breaks in.
The Buzzz SS (SS stand for super straight) is a different mold than the others Buzzz's. It is designed to be less stable (anhyzer or turn over more easily) than the others. So you could start with a candy Buzzz and beat it in for a couple years or just pull a fresh Buzzz SS out of the box.
In case ROWMRO ever gets converted to Buzzz's, he might need a new screen name. Rock On With My Buzzz On? Buzzz On With My Buzzz Intact?
