Ok I take it back (Buzzz)

Well I have been peddling the Truth pretty hard. Now don't get me wrong. I love my Truth. I will always bag my Truth. It beats a Buzzz on Distance any day.

BUT

Today, on a 290' uphill hole. I got an Ace with my Crystal Z Buzzz. I wouldn't have even picked this disc up if it wasn't a Limited Edition. I then started throwing the Buzzz against the Truth a little more, and well. The Buzzz is pretty awesome.

I think there is a place in my bag for both. The Buzzz has excellent control, straight, and can do a good turnover. The Truth does all this too, but is longer, a little faster, not as precise, but is more overstable, and fights the wind.

So well see how the head to head continues, but I do want to take back all the things I said about the Truth being "so much" better.

Ain't a rule against throwing both. Hell you could add a Roc even and use all three. They all have great qualities. For me the Truth had two things going for it that I couldn't get out of my buzzz and I threw a buzzz for a long time I'd say. The truth fits my hand slightly better, and I can beat it up faster. The only buzzz I really cared for is the Z and I found myself wanting to beat one up to flippy sooner than 2 or 3 years. If you pair it with a meteor though you can get by just fine. Throw what makes you happy and give you the best scores.

No matter what disc you may ace with, it will undoubtedly become a favorite or rediscovered favorite in your case. Both good discs, period. Oh, congrats by the way.

Nope, you can't take it back. You know the Truth.

Exactly...the Truth can overshoot and will fade more. My Truth reminds me of my Wasp. Both flat-topped, they fly very similar, Wasp has a bigger bead is all.

I got my very first Ace with the Truth, as well as my first Birdies, my first 300' shot, my first 350' shot.

The Truth will ALWAYS be my favorite disc ever.

But the Buzzz today, impressed me. When I was doing field work the other day, I couldn't decide between them, so I bagged both. Today, well let's put it this way. I was trying adementally to NOT like the Buzzz, but I do.

Not surprised, the slower speed of the Buzzz compared to the Truth offers more control and precision.

I've actually moved my Lucid Truth into a fairway driver role. It's the longest mid I've thrown to date, longer than even the Squall and Warship, IME.

You like the Buzzz, and you haven't even tried the Axis yet.

Why take a massive step backwards?
