Are all X Buzzzes domey, or do flat ones exist?

I have a domey X Buzzz that, other than the label, seems like a completely different mold than the dinner plate-flat Glo Z or Z Buzzzes. The domey X Buzzz flies way more understable than the Z’s, too. I had a flat D Buzzz that I liked until I threw it on a roof. As I recall, after a few collisions the D Buzzz was slightly more understable than the Z Buzzz – bendable but not flippy.

I’m not sure that I need to carry a flippy midrange. Right now it seems like throwing a Z Buzzz, DX Whippet, and Warlock forehand and backhand covers the shots I need (not that I can always make the shots, but I should be able to).

Thoughts?

There are a lot of flat X Buzzzes out there. I've seen a couple of the domey ones, and they are really freaky. Most are flat or at least flatish...

As far as not carrying one that is understable, as I said before there are a lot of situations, specific ceilings and distances, where an understable midrange allows for a real touch shot instead of having to try to force something with a stable disc. This is where overthrows/throwing into the ground/offline comes more into play.

Freaky is right. I will probably try an X Buzzz again, but it sounds like I need to pick out a flat one in person (or take advantage of your personal shopping services, if still available . . .).

Good point. Thank you!

Recently traded a Champ Leo for an ESP Buzzz and I love the thing! I can pretty much throw it on any line I want, with any amount of power I want.

My ESP Buzzzes get more time than my Z ones.....I think we are in the minority!

ESP Buzzzes are great. I've thrown quite a few. They break into straight quite quickly and stay there a long time. Most glide pretty well too. I went back to the Z because I found the ESP to get squirrely in the wind.

It's usually always windy at my local course and I think thats the main reason I have come to like my Z-Buzz the most out of all the other plastics. My Z-Buzz handles the wind much better than my FLX, and seems more consitant than my ESP as well. I really want to pick up a Glo-Z Buzz as I've heard they are really sweet!

Glo Z Buzzzes are my favorite Buzzzes of all time.

Where is the option for any? Any Buzz is a great Buzz! If I must pick though...I say old Z. Then again my FLX Buzz was amazing...and my X Buzz...my 1st run was money also...

I was wondering if it was possible to beat in a esp buzz or is this a lost cause?

Yes, it is possible. Buy an X to use in the mean time. You will not regret it.

Yep most definitely possible. After heavily utilizing my ESP Buzzz for a year it is now well seasoned and will finish its flight very straight.

Thank you for the responses

I have been using d buzzes and traded for a few discs and one was an esp buzz. So I was hoping if I can keep it out of the water (it is blue) i would try and beat it in.

It's definitely possible but don't hold your breath. I found a beat one 177 and then used it for practice in the woods by a road every day for a year. Now it's quite understable.
