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!

I have been enjoying my photon glo buzz, its so reliable.

The glide on it is amazing, can do any shot with it

Very concave and great plastic.

My X Buzz GT has a not-quite-finger-size hole near the rim and says "Clutch" on it.

Aha! I checked up buzz gt in the search and found Coreys' post. B4 reading your post I sent him a PM saying that there are some cryztals left. Hopefully he reads his email.

Finally got to test my 177+ GT Buzzzes out in the field today. I tried to throw the discs in different releases to see how they flew and also threw it against my ESP Buzzz 177+.

The flight: The GT Buzzz flew similar to other Buzzzes I have thrown however it was had a tad bit more HSS. LSS stability was also a touch more then my ESP.

When released with slight-hyzer the GT would flip flat and the disc would have a rating of -0.25/2.2.5. My ESP is spot on -0.5/2.0. The disc went farther with better glide then my ESP Buzzz as well.

The Plastic: This Cryztal Z plastic was amazing. The plastic was grippy yet was a firmer blend then other Cryztal plastics I have felt including Nukes, Forces, and Buzzzes. I am unsure if this was a special blend, but it feels great. I hit a fence, a tree, and the frozen ground, and not a scratch on the disc.

Overall, the disc flew like my ESP Buzz with a touch more HSS stability which I wanted. The plastic is amazing and gets a thumbs up. My friend also threw several of his Z GT Buzzzes and the flight was slightly more stable then his Z discs. We were both super impressed with the GT. I will be keeping it in the bag and if the plastic is as good as I feel it will be, it should be in for a while (plus I got another).

Yeh I threw mine today for the first time. I would say its going to replace my wasp. Slightly more stable than my buzz but without the bead that the wasp has. My midranges are now Glide (i know its a fairway but I use it as my understable midrange), Buzz, Buzz GT and Drone. Covers everything!
