You almost have to wonder if the guy who selected that green color for production has ever played a round of disc golf...

I've been holding out on the Ti Buzzz until some brighter colors show up at my shop. Pink or a more vivid orange would be awesome.

I have a gold Stalker and it is an unnatural bright color so it stands out against every background and in the shadows/at night.
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.

Yeah...that green one was a pain in the ass to spot in the fairway...let alone longer grass. I really like the Copper Ti plastic. Pretty easy to spot all around. The Slate blue Ti plastic is nice as well.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

I finally threw a couple max weight Titanium Buzzzes today. One was a gold color with HukLab stamp, and is ultra-flippy. The other was plain silver/grey and was a tad under-stable. I don't like them, at all. The Z Buzzz flies perfectly straight for me, I have a good clean throw with these discs. Now I see that there's no reason whatsoever for me to throw one of these Ti Buzzzes, just like I didn't really have much use for the Buzzz SS. So my first impression of Ti Buzzz is 2 thumbs down. Nice try, Discraft!

I got to toss that blue Buzzz and it's beefy. The most overstable Buzzz I've thrown. It's in new DX Roc territory. Only threw it like 4 times though

flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

Same durability as Z. Don't think its any more or less resistant to dings or scuffs.

So Ti is the same durability as Z, similar feel/tackiness as Z, the good ones fly like their Z versions...but much less consistent than Z (wild variations in stability, even for the Buzzz)...

...so will somebody please tell me why you'd pay twice as much for what appears to me (based on a wide variety of accounts) to be an inferior product? Why is everybody buying the hype?

Prettyyyy. And i haven't fondled a Buzzz but the Stalker has raised lettering improving the grip.
