In my humble opinion the Buzzz GT is the best approach disc I own (and it is a tragedy that this disc never caught on). Just like the normal Buzzz it will hold any line you give it, but it has a little less lift and a very flat fade (i.e. almost no dive). This makes it a great disc for safely laying up near the basket. For this purpose, try releasing it flat with just a little hyser on the approach; when released in this manner it makes a very reliable quick, flat left turn that buries nicely into the ground. Heavier versions are great in the wind. It also makes a nice roller for shots in the 300-350' range. I am not generally a fan of thumb tracks, but this one is well designed. I only wish they had made a version of this in Z-plastic so I could use it more on the desert courses!
