One disc each. It's called a Buzzz vs Roc challenge, not a Buzzzes vs Rocs challenge.

I used the Buzzz for years before switching to Rocs. I tried adding the Buzz back to the bag last year and just couldn't find a reason to keep it. I think the Buzzz is a great disc, but what shot can you throw with a buzz that you can't with a roc?

my Roc went "OB" and is lost, probably I can get it in winter... so I guess Buzzz wins? Oh wait, it's not even in my bag anymore - Pain and Core won!!!
I have to admit though, the Buzzz is really a forgiving and easy disc...

But I actually like the idea of a one disc only tournament. One disc only, no different molds or wear stages. Just one.

I think the buzzz does straight a little better. I also find it better on low ceiling shots, and I flick it much better than rocs. That being said, I keep a champ roc For overstable wind shots and a beat roc for turnovers. Then I keep the Buzzz in there for the straight shots.

Yeah unless your carrying a bunch in different stages of wear, they are not meant to be similar flyers, Buzzz is an easier line shaper and Roc is meant for a solid fade and better in wind. Really to do this contest it would be better to do Roc vs Wasp or Shark vs Buzzz.

Hear hear. I have only had a Buzzz for half a year and I just now got a Roc (well, two Rocs actually) and I love the Buzzz but haven't gotten to throw my Rocs much. Although with the little amount I have thrown them I am sure that they will work well and all these discs will find a place in my game.

I am honestly getting kind of sick of Buzzz vs. Roc. I think they both can live peacefully in the same bag

I mean, I only carry one mold for the whole bag....about 21 differently worn Firebirds and I'm getting along fine...

Anyway, I wanted to get more consistency with my shots so I tried out the 1 mid range thing for a while with Buzzz's. I love my buzzz's, but they're just not THAT versitile. I would say the roc is better in that aspect, but I'm stil a Buzzz guy deep down, so I just re-added other molds lol

The discs don't matter as much as the throwers. You could have a Wolf vs. Roc challenge with the Wolf guy winning. Not sure why these peeing contests matter so much.

tell you what, i'll carry 4 kc rocs, and you can carry 4 z buzzzes or whatever plastic you choose. no wasps or buzzz ss's. no sir, just like i won't be carrying a roc3 or classic roc, because then it would just be unfair.

There was a tourney exactly like this a couple of years ago at a course close to wear I live (Brown Deer DGC) & the competitors were allowed to carry as many Rocs or Buzzes (you had to choose either Rocs or Buzzes not both) as they wanted.
