The Buzzz SS is a really good midrange mold from Discraft...it does certain things the Buzzz can't, which of course was the reason for putting it out.

JR knows his stuff...about disc golf and WW2. A couple dicey exhanges between us earlier in this thread were more humorous than anything else. At least I was laughing while writing...

I threw a Z Buzzz SS once and decided it was an ESP Buzzz flight in Z plastic Is that inaccurate?

I find the Buzzz SS to be fadeless. It has a different more blunt nose and a tapered 'L' type wing vs the concave wing of the Buzzz. A Z Buzzz flies the closest to the SS, IMO.

LOL, what I love more than a TL;DR wall of text, is a completely offtopic TL;DR wall of text

On topic, a beat old run P-MD2 is a completely fadeless disc, if thats what your tunnel craves.

You guys have no idea about how long posts i have made before :-D You have joined so late. I have written more characters on this board than anybody else unless there is more in the phpBB code :-) There are not many that have writeen more posts here. Possibly DGDave only at this time. He needs to shape up or he'll be challenged for the postmaster general title. Which is an US title and being a foreigner it does not feel right. You gotta bait him to write more often :-P

Both Bents and me have written much more than what i wrote in my previous post in about ten posts from him and a few longer ones from me in the lat couple of days in PMs about WW2.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Z Buzzz has reliable fade. Some may think I'm crazy, but I think fade on Glow Z is a little sharper aka less penetrating than Z. ESP is closer to fadeless.

I cycle Rocs & I use a beat Roc for mid tunnel shots. The Atlas is also a good choice. Innova is going to be putting the Champion Atlas into normal production soon.

A friend of mine is throwing his Atlas with lots of success in the more narrow woods holes. I've never thrown one. Curious about the Foxbat

Doesn't the Atlas have that strange version of an overmold that uses funky plastic rivets underneath? It looks toy. I actually held one, and no thanks!...if I'm thinking of the same disc.
