It slipped my mind when I created the poll. I also wish the Glo Z Buzzz was on it now as well. I agree that it wasn't my favorite Buzzz though...Its an X Buzzz that's had its glide circumcised. It should have been on there though.

I know somebody that has some of those GTs and uses them to forehand with quite well, but other than him I've never heard any love for them.

My new pink Z Buzzz is a good deal more overstable than my Glo Z, so its been a welcome addition to my bag. I ripped a 350' hyzer all the way shot with it today and it held its release angle beautifully.

I guess I'm officially a Buzzz convert. The only one I have is an old flat 176 Z so I guess that's my favorite.

Have I mentioned lately that I hate discspeed and want to use my foot to ensure that his just-born child is his last? I've been throwing Rocs for a little while now since I cleaned up my throw some more and they've worked fine, can't say I love them but it has been working pretty well and since I prefer stuff in DX I've felt satisfied. But then today I'm throwing a couple practice shots on a hole after the handicap and he suggests I throw his X Buzzz and as always happens when I throw one of his discs I shank it but then I grab his Z Buzzz and it goes on this bloody perfect straight line with a nice little fade at the end that parks the hole.

So now I bought an X and Z Buzzz because I really do prefer something with a natural straight flight anyway and the low ceilings I usually deal with are better suited to something that's not so height dependent and after throwing his Buzzz just once I can no longer fake being happy with the Roc. :roll:

I don't throw Buzzzes just to be different and cool. :wink: I hope you also aspire to one day throw the 300' shot with 0 turn and 0 fade like I did with my Glo Buzzz there. I also think that if a lot of Roc throwers on DGR played our home courses all the time they would find advantage in the Buzzz.

Absolutes are foolish. If this were true, would Innova have released the Coyote/Mako/Roc +? Obviously a few too many were "coming back" about as well as a beat Roc.

I just voted for the new Z Buzzz. Took one in the bag for the first time this weekend to a tourney. We ended up doing a throw off for the ace fund because nobody got an ace. The TD set his bag in the field, pointed at a basket and told everyone to throw at it. As soon as the disc took off it looked $$ and when it landed the guys down by the basket started clapping. Parked it! Bought some more Buzzzes.

I carry a Z Buzzz and a really beat up ESP Buzzz that plus a ESP Zone cover all of my mid needs.

Some Z's (FR, Opaques, and Glos) hold a slight turn really well while holding their altitude and gliding very nice. I usually prefer controlling these type of line holding turnover shots rather than throwing shots that flip. That being said, there are a lot of times where you need a shot to actually flip and glide. For these, it is honestly near impossible to ever get a Z (or even an ESP for that matter) truly understable. I remember a buddy of mine who was a little eccentric (but one hell of a golfer) showed up to doubles one night with an ESP Buzzz that he had taken some sort of rotary tool to. It was hilariously jacked up...but it actually flew sweet...when thrown at moderate speeds it would flip slowly and continuously throughout the flight. Anyway, we're not allowed to do this to our discs (if you play PDGAs), so for that reason I recommend an X. I would say a pro-D, but that plastic sucks (although I know a good old school player that uses them, and I can no longer claim they don't glide well). The X Buzzz will still take a year of heavy normal use to actually be flippy, but you can always accelerate the wear period (which I'm about to do with my X Buzzz).
