Review: If thrown flat this thing will fly extremely flat and stable, so little fade its ridiculous. If thrown with an angle it will hold that angle and the elite x plastic is great, I prefer innova's pro plastic but the x plastic is a thousand times better than the basic plastic. The groove top feels great, I only wish I had gotten a slightly lighter weight, maybe 174 or so, at 177 it feels so heavy. It is nice how the wind doesn't affect the flight much at all. I would highly recommend this as anyone's primary midrange disc, it really is a thing of beauty.

Review: At first I did not like this disc. But now if you don't include my putter I use it more than my next two discs combined. I use it on most drives under 250' and all aproaches from 75-250'. This thing just goes straight and if you want a slight hyzer it will hold that line really well too. I still do not like it in the wind though it just behaves really bizzare. The GT lines up with my thumb perfect and seems to get me a more consistent release.

Review: This is my first experience with the Buzz mold. I cannot compare it to the original mold. I can compare it to a Wasp which appears to be the same mold without the bead on the bottom of the edge. I picked up the Buzz GT Friday. Since it's been wet and rainy I hadnt really gotten a chance to get a feel for it prior to our little "Ace Race" today. However, sense some of the holes were about 250' and require technique over raw power. Enter the Buzz GT! Thrown with a flat release it sails dead nutz straight. It's just stable enough to hold the line. I sent it sailing with anhyzer and it held the angle all the way through. Same deal with a hyzer release. Interesting thing about this disc is its straight fade. If you have thrown the Banger GT for approaches you've noticed it's settle down soft with little fade. The Buzz GT is just like that. It's like a Banger GT with more range (without turning over). My only wish is for an ESP or Elite Z release of this mold.
