Buzzz SS or Comet (please read the qualification first)
 
Ok, so I am working with some kids who are eager to start playing disc golf. I have a basket in my classroom and we made an indoor putting league. I have lots of practice putters.
That said, we were going to order some discs for the spring. I had previously purchased a bunch of Z-Buzzzes and since we still have several of those, the kids will likely start off with putter/buzzz combo.

My question to the DGCR audience is, if the kids are already sort of used to the feel of the buzzz, would it make more sense to buy some Buzzz SS's which should feel very similar in hand and should be able to help kids recognize the stability difference between it and a regular buzzz or does that not matter and I should go with some comets, which I know are popular Discraft US mids?

If possible, please justify your reasoning, thanks!

(the students are high school age)

How old are they? Would a smaller disc than either of those fit them better?

Good question, I meant to add that. They are high school age

I think you are fine with either one in that case. I would go with the buzzz were it me simply because i personally have never liked the hand feel of the comet.

The Comet is an incredible flier and is a staple in my bag personally (so take this with a grain of salt.) I think it was a big part of helping me get my form down and really start progressing my game. It has this slow putter like flight but just keeps going, it's also got silly glide.

BUT.

It also has a VERY weird feel, which took me a while to get used to, and it can take a little while to master. Z's and ESP's are a good bit less finnicky, than their X counterparts, but may overlap a touch with the Buzzz as well right out of the box.

So, is the idea to have a buzz and then paired a more understable complement? Or are you just buying more midranges so that all kids have something?

If the former I'd go X buzzz or X comet (think either fine) rather than SS personally. BTW SS can be pretty stable for beginners, even for athletes IME

On one hand, I was hoping to let them experience the difference in flight characteristics (they are in my physics class).

On the other hand, I wasn't sure if that would actually be demonstrable to beginners and so therefore, would a comet be a wiser choice? I kind of thought of the comet as a standalone disc that works for all skill levels but caters to lower arm speeds learning to throw, whereas I think of the buzzz ss as a disc specific to buzzz throwers who wanted something that felt like a beat-in buzzz?

The Buzzz SS should feel good to them if they like a Buzzz already.

I'd go X-Comet.

It gives options in feel. Just as many don't like the feel of the Comet, there are a lot of people who don't like the feel of a Buzzz.
The Comet adds a different feel and flight. A Buzzz-SS isn't going to be that much different to newer players than a Buzzz.

Buzzz SS ranges down to putter/approach easier than a Comet.
