My only ESP Buzzz is way less HSS than my Zs are. The ESP needs initial hyzer to flip to flat at full power. I don't turn Zs from a flat throw. Don't know about other Buzzzes in ESP. Come to think of it my X Buzzz started out as HSS and quickly broke in to a little less HSS than my ESP Buzzz.

Blurr's ESP Buzzz is a brand new hot pink one. Hot pink discs are always more beefy and go further.


My ESP is yellow.
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.

why is everyone hating on the third runs lately, I personally like the third runs more than any of the others and I own a few from each run...

They tend to have a ton of glide, a fair amount of HSS and very little LSS and there are some awesome colors.

Dunno, haters be hating. Nothing wrong with the 3rd runs, and I seriously doubt that the runs before are any better than this.

I like the third runs. They are better than the 2nd and easier to get than the 1st and throw the same as them.

i scooped 3 esp comets this weekend from a buddy . not sure if these are 1st or 2nd runs. definitely not 3rd . theyre stiff,domey, very chalky/sticky, and have the tooling. ive yet to throw one but i think ill toss one in the bag.

also,i threw the comets this weekend and i guess my form isnt off as much as i thought but more so my timing. i was still able to get the comets out straight as an arrow. all im waiting on is for some old z's to come in,cant wait.

one more thing,after throwing comets...ive kind of got a hankering to theow my rocs back in the bag :/.

After all my talk of having buzzz's and comet's in the bag...I have swapped out the buzzz's for roc's. I find that my throwing technique for comets more closely resembles my roc form rather than my buzzz form. So...going to be rocking the roc/comet rig for the foreseeable future.

two dx rancho's, one dx ontario, an esp comet and an x-comet. My ESP Comet is understable and the X is really understable. So the ontario fills the gap between my worn rancho and my esp.

The ontario is still pretty fresh, so no overlap with either the ESP or the X. The ontario is just a place holder until one of my two rancho's gets seasoned enough.

Tight courses:

DX Rancho - fresh
DX Rancho - slightly beat
Z comet - newish
ESP comet - beat
ESP/X/TP comet - really beat

Open courses:

DX rancho or Star/Champ rancho
DX rancho - slightly beat
DX rancho - beat to money stage
ESP comet - beat
ESP comet - really beat

The 3rd roc comes in on open courses because comets get beat around by random wind gusts easier on those open courses whereas the roc powers through. I also usually stick with just the really beat ESP in the open because my really beat X/TP comets are so flippy and i usually don't need to throw a super flippy trick shot with them in the open.

I like my esp comets less stable, i have z's for overstable.
The flatter green and orange esp's were my favorite.
