As much as I need to know how the word stable works, can anyone tell me how the discs fly?

Stable, but not overstable?

Around here, the word over can be replaced by very, or extremely stable. As in, that nuke OS is extremely stable.

I tested out 3 ti buzzz'z at 177g+ each with almost 50 throws each in practice. I'm a buzzz thrower but usually only use them in the under 200' range and also use them around the basket for putts/parking.

Gold was flat
Blue was a little flatter
Silver was flattest and slightly concave

For the most part they all flew the same and landed close to each other. Flights were predictable and they held my release angle forever with power. They flew as far as normal flat z for me.

I don't know how long it will take to get beat in because these things are pretty stiff and took some tree hits no prob. Didn't deflect or skip as much as z does.

Handled steady 15-20 mph winds better than expected and cut thru like butter until it slowed down at the end of the flight. HW TW and CW didn't hurt em at all.

This seems like a good mid range thrower for BH. Was okay at FH but I use a wasp for that but they're not too shabby as a FH roller at a few 100' tries. OH were not good at all but I had to try it and they ended up looking like a wounded duck.

Inside the circle was kinda mixed as some shots were stickin chains while a couple bounced a little. They weren't getting sucked in or anything but most bad putts was me not used to the discs yet.

They flew like a buzzz should...awesome.
Straight describes it well.
It flys good enough to justify the hype so far but time will tell if its a must have in the bag. I'll have to test it out more my next round.

They only thing I don't like is that these things are hard to see/find in shadows, dusk, and taller grass. I know I'll be on the lookout for lost Ti's this summer so write your # on em.

These Buzzz's are awesome.

Just got back from a quick field test. They fly like the good Glo's. I have a flat 177 silver one.

For reference, I throw Buzzzs' from 250-325ft on a golf line.

My sunburst orange is bright as hell. Got chained out yesterday with my first throw on an actual hole with my blue TI buzzz (only field tested it a few times before that). Still getting used to the stiffness, but flight wise they are grrreat.

Really, this is basic disc golf terminology. And it isn't difficult.

Not true, and now you're trying to re-invent the English language, in addition to mauling disc golf terminology.

Stable is stable. Over-stable is over-stable. Under-stable is under-stable. Very stable means that a disc has more stability. Very Over-stable means it has more over-stability. Etc.. For the Nuke OS, OS=Over-Stable.

For the language-challenged, we have youtube...

Sounds great. But are they really worth $30 if one can find cherry Z-Buzzzes for $15?

if the production run msrp is $30, I think discraft is barking up the wrong tree.

more durable than z would be interesting, especially if they release the predator in this plastic. you'd never have to buy a new one ever again!

JHern I wasn't being serious. I was over the bickering of people talking about stable vs overstable in a thread about a new plastic. I know how it works. Even though I don't have a phd or whatever you have, I manged to figure out how the terms work shortly after I started playing years ago.

Now to keep it back on topic, I am excited that they are flying as you guys are describing.

$16.99-19.99 is what I've been seeing from online stores. Pretty much in the CFR price range. They'll probably be around $20 at retail stores. Not too bad for a higher quality blend of durable plastic. Glad I didn't buy any pre-release from feebay. Didn't think they'd go that high.

I would pay it but I'm a fish... :D

Luckily they're only $17 at MSt and worth the extra $2.

I'm looking forward to some more field work tomorrow and will report back with more detail.
