I am liking my Titanium Buzzz a lot, although have never tried a Z Buzzz. The Ti Buzzz has a nice straight shot with a slight turnover. The plastic quality seems high, and it is durable. However, they do make a LOT of dark colors that nobody really wants to throw.

How heavy is your Ti Buzzz and how far do you throw it? Mine is 175 and doesn't turn over. I have not tested the distance yet but 300'+.
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.

I like the Ti Buzzz, but I'm sticking with my first run buzzzes. My heavy Ti Buzzzes would not flip without a headwind or unless I started them turned over. If it weren't for my first runs I could see a heavy glow buzzz for overstable, a Ti Buzzz for stable, and a QMS for stable to understable combo.

Anyway, I got a 177+ gold Ti Wasp that I'm liking so far. It doesn't have anywhere near the glide of my Buzzzes but it does like to fade left the last third of the flight on a flatish throw. I've been trying pro-d drone and pro-d zone for the go left with safety shots. I guess I'm used to having to throw the drone and zone harder so the Wasp isn't a big difference versus adding hyzer on the further flying buzzz. I've thrown rocs for overstable mid in the past so the bead doesn't bother me and I like the beefier rim of the wasp for power shots which is why I dropped rocs for the wider rimmed buzzz. If the wasp had more glide I'd like it even more... or if the roc had a wider rim and still had the same glide I'd bag rocs again. I feel like I can really power up the wasp and not have too much worry about it flipping on a low flat line where a ching roc might turn into a head wind and a rancho hold straight. There's a lot of trees at my home courses so pro-d means lots of rotation where Ti Wasp should last a while given my limited need for overstable mid. Also, I've had a couple good flicks, more practice required, but they were easy to control.

Not too many big wind days in Memphis. Hot, humid, and still.

Mine is 177g, and on a good rip I can throw it 300 to 320 feet. It holds a line really well, but it will turn over just a little bit for me.

Is your disc flat at the top? Mine is and at 175-176 it is at least as HSS and a little more LSS than a 180 flat top Z Buzzz.
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.

Paige got the Stalker for her worlds win, will Sarah get a disc as well? I have no idea what she throws, but hopefully its a comet or zone.

So what's the story on the Ti Wasp? Just how dirty is it? People are saying that it glides well, is dirty code for glidey?
