This is a trick question.
Do any of you remember the movie, My Cousin Vinny, where Marissa Tomei, uses this line??
A Buzzz is a Roc. Hold up a Buzzz next to a Roc and look closely. Hold up a Wasp next to a Buzzz and a Roc.
Now blindfold a player and hand them a Roc, Buzzz and Wasp and give them the Pepsi challenge.
The best Rocs ever made are the first run candy (USDGC) CE Rocs and the Dx Ching Rocs. Why? They are overstable and flat-topped. The CE Rocs are even made of indestructible candy plastic. Look at a box of new Rocs. They are all domey (except the CE's and the Chings). They are made that way on purpose. Look at a box of Buzzz's. Some are domey, some are flat -topped. They are made that way on purpose because players differ in their preferences.
The best Discraft Roc ever made is the next one you buy but it will be called a Buzzz or Wasp. The Buzz and Roc are the same top but the Wasp has a bead on the bottom which makes it a bit more overstable.
So if they are the same then why is the Buzzz the best Roc??? Because you can get a candy Buzzz off the shelf from any place that sells them($15-20). You can get a CE Roc from EBAY for $500. You can buy a Ching Roc at standard rates but it is not candy plastic. It is DX (standard) plastic. If you hit a tree with it, it tacos. Ever time you smack it good it changes it flight pattern- or maybe not-but you don't know for sure and can't completely trust it. Candy plastic lasts for years before it begins to slowly break in.
If you buy the disc from me you can get it cheaper than that and you can test it before you buy it. There is a Buzzz or Wasp in some plastic (Z, ESP or FLX) that you will love. And if you lose it, you can replace it without cashing in your retirement funds.
As noted elsewhere, the only real challenge is replacing a broken in Buzzz. In which case, good luck, baby.
