want to throw an innova buzzz?

Postby zealot » Tue Aug 22, 2006 2:12 pm

you can, its called a skeeter. the only difference is the top is a tiny bit more domey. i got one today and sank a 35-40 footer on my 3rd throw with it... it does fly laser straight i just got to get use to it.

also a side note,,, the bottom of mine says HOB 174 (for hobbit).... i guess they either pressed em before they stamped em or someone at innova is real pissed they couldnt call it the hobbit. definately a better name than skeeter but i think this disc found a place in my bag today.

Domier, so you're saying they are a lil bit more overstable than a
Buzzz? Do they fly as long? How do they hold an anhyzer? Are they a large diameter disc or are they driver sized?

Just curious.

Lock-off, do you throw Rocs at all? If so, how would you compare the two?

amateur,,,, yes, no, didnt try a big one yet, driver sized

glock, yeah you should def. go to quonset hut right now.

this disc wont be as good in the wind as a roc, but for tunnel shots its probably better. you also might flip this disc over if you try to drive it to hard. other than that its great for touch approaches. besides sinking that one 35 footer i had a few that were touch perfect and stayed where they landed like a roc does (eg, i shot one up a hill i did NOT want to go over and it flopped and stuck real nice at the end of the flight) i like how this disc fades ultra late so you can throw right for the chains with it no problem. i didnt throw it throughout the whole of my match today but it did well. it seems to like being flicked rather than ripped if that makes sense.

Why don't they just make a beadless Roc? Most people I've played with are pretty hung up on their large diameter mids. A 175gm mid will get passed over by alot of people. Do they just not want to be a follower?

If Wasp= Discraft Roc
and Buzzz = beadless Wasp
would beadless Roc = Innova Buzzz?

Argument applies to premium plastic only, of course, because if you want a Roc to fly similiar to a Buzzz, you can just beat in a DX one.

I can see that they might not want people saying "It's like an Innova Buzzz." If they sold it in Star I think they would sell a truck load though.

Lol, they could call it the Buzzard.

It would be like stealing back their own design.

so i sank a 200 ft approach with this thing today. it was slightly elevated, and i threw a nice smooth hyzer that swept right into the money spot on the basket. i do like it for touch approaches, but it seems to work well for tunnel shots and straight approaches that are short as well.

u shoulda seen me doing flips and somersaults out in the fairway im sure it was funny. people were cheering from 2 different holes!

a beat roc will be as straight as a buzzz (if not straighter) but have a higher resistance to turn. In my mind this = superiority to the buzzz (I wont lie I miss the out of the box flight of a buzzz, and it hurts alot more to loose a seasoned wasp than any buzzz)

So thats how people describe Rocs that go straight with little to no fade at 85% power? beat in? Well then...
