I say get an x buzz. I carry an esp for straight/slight hyzer shots and a beat in x buzz for turnovers. It did not take very long for the x to get beat in how I want it and it has stayed how I want it without getting too flippy for over a year now.

PLH. Parting Line Height. I've never looked at PLH on Buzzzes. I've never had a problem with them to where I thought PLH was an issue.

I'm in the exact same boat you are. Like. EXACT. I went with the X Buzzz, it just came in the mail. It has a slightly higher shoulder as mentioned, but I've seen domier Z Buzzzes (the purple ones!). The X plastic feels quite nice, has a good grip to it, and feels like a Buzzz.

I'll probably keep the Fuse in the bag. I've tried Meteors, Stingrays and Buzzz SSs, and the Fuse is the best at this shot, with the additional advantage of feeling pretty buzzz-like in the hand. I've been getting some surprsingly stable shots from mine lately though... I'm not accustomed to getting 250' slight hyzer shots that don't turn at all... It was flippin for me today, though.

I picked up one of those LE Cryztal Buzzz misprints from Dynamic and it's more understable than my FLX and Z Buzzzes are. I think it's an SS though. You might look into that. I don't really carry my Cryztal because I have a Comet and a Fuse (with the Comet being more forgiving believe it or not), but it could fit what you're looking at.

Cooter-
I've heard that before about the colors. However, I only buy them in pink, so I would never have found that out on my own

Ok let me go ahead and give my opinion on this. I have to agree with the buzzz ss people. I have 2 of these and they are the only mids I carry. They can do it all, if I throw them hard i can throw hyzer flips and anhyzers, and I can put it on an anny line and it will hold it. I think it's the perfect disc for what you're looking for.

I use a glo buzz for what you are talking about, but to be fair there is probably some OAT or over torquing when doing so. Also it's beat to hell and back. I love all things esp plastic, and my esp surges are great for hyzerflips and turnover shots when broken in enough.

You said it! I carry a Z Buzzz for super straight & HPP Elements for turnovers. Find a flat, gummy one, smack a couple trees, & they are turnover machines. Flat release & they will hold the turn to the ground. A little hyzer it fliips up, tracks right, & barely fades at the end. Super underrated mold IMHO

hmmmmmm.... never really thrown anything from Gateway, (save for a Wizard). Perhaps I should give it a try?

Ditto, awesome disc. I'm a half-cooked noodle arm (i.e. I can get some distance, but not big distance) and I am flirting with 300' with my Buzzz SS on an anhyzer.
