Default Mini Buzz & Smaller Diameter Discs

I got a Mini-Buzz, and it is a lot of fun.
It makes short-length holes very challenging again.
This got me wondering though about making a closer
to half-sized discs (compared to full).

I don't know how seriously the mini-buzz will be taken. Probably
not at all as it is a novelty of sort. However, this got me wondering
about a substantial small disc. This would make shorter courses a sort of
real challenge again. Our local course has holes so short just standing without
run-up and using a putter is still too easy.

Say, a disc around 6.5 inches or so in diameter?

I was just wondering if anyone else would like them, especially for training?

One time before a basketball game I was f'ing around with one of those mini balls. My coach told me to stop being an idiot before I got too used to a different feel.

My assumption is these end up at the same level as Superclass. Novelty fun.

I tihnk more people are taking to the Mini-Buzzz than super class. Maybe chuck had it backwards. Rather than go bigger, go smaller.

^^^Yes, they are.

I could see the Lil' Wiz becoming a popular choice for some fun courses. Turn traditional par 3's into 4s and 5s. Would be fun.

Meh.....just a gimmick to me. I currently find no fun deficit in the real game, that needs a gimmick to hold my interest. I got one, threw it around for a few minutes. Ooooo.....a small Frisbee, neat.....let's go play.

Those Lil Wiz are fun to throw, the mini Buzzz doesn't have the same amount of enjoyment for me as the Lil Wiz.
