Making the switch. What pairs/compliments well with the Buzzz?

So I've been throwing Rocs for as long as I can remember and they haven't treated me poorly by any means, but last week I threw a few of my friend's Buzzzs and they just feel so much better in the hand.

SO...I've made a few trades and got a nice 10th anniversary coming my way courtesy of MasterJoda (Thanks by the way).

What pairs well with the Buzzz? From the throws I had, it had some nice stability to it but I need to figure out what will pair well?

Understable: Is there a Buzzz in a different plastic that can fill this slot?
Stable: Buzzz
OS: Tried Mace, Flat top Rocs. Pains perhaps? Wasps?

an overstable compliment of a drone or a hornet wouldn't be a bad idea.

I use a seasoned Comet for stable/understable, a Buzzz for stable, and a Hornet for overstable. I also use an overstable putter (usually Zone, testing out the Pig), but I could get away without it.

Wasp (flat of course), Hornet, Drone (if you can find 1 that makes weight lol good luck)

A Buzzz SS is similar to a buzzz in feel but it's understable. Good to have in the bag since it feels like a Buzzz and will beat up into something more flippy.

Really though, you could get a Ti Buzzz, Z Buzzz and a Light Z buzzz to cover all the shots lol.

Comet, Buzzz, Drone is a great combo platter.

Will a Ti Buzzz be more stable than the Z? I like the idea of having minimal molds in the bag, so this would be great.

Also, picked up a DD Suspect and am loving it so far. Not sure how much overlap that would have with the Zone/Drone recommendations

My suggestion would be Meteor & M3. (if you feel the meteor is too understable you def want to look at a M4).

- i got to test throw a suspect few times today, and it is fairly similar to Zone, but I feel M3 will give you more distance if you are looking for that. Suspect/Zone/drone will be shorter and dump harder than a Wasp or M3.

You really can't go wrong with Discraft's midrange lineup. Meteor, Comet, Buzzz, Hornet, Wasp, Drone. Everything you could need.

Vector/Axis/Tangent are mighty tasty too.

It will but only so much. I'd suggest getting a Flat Z Wasp in addition. OR a Hornet. I use a hornet instead of a flat z wasp because flat z wasps can be annoying to find.

The suspect will be about the same as a zone, zone is a tad more overstable, and since it's so fast for a tweener, I think it could overlap with the drone a little bit.

Don't buy a Zone or Drone if you already like the Suspect. I'd say a Z Wasp and Buzzz SS or Meteor if you're looking for bookends to the Z Buzzz.
