Going to test the diehard Buzzz guys.

Who can spot the real Buzzz in these pictures?





I love the flight of the Buzzz but Discraft plastics and I just dont get along. I was going through the mids in my stash and found something that feels and flies almost identical to the Buzzz but in a much better feeling (to me) plastic.

The disc I pulled from my stash is so Buzzz-like that I am guessing even the expert Buzzz throwers probably cant tell them apart. Maybe Im wrong and you guys will spot the real Buzzz right away.

Ill give this a few days before I reveal which disc is a Buzzz and which one isnt.

Not yellow.

To save face if I'm wrong I will say I haven't bagged them in over a year (or any type of practice throws)

Im curious to what the non buzzz disc might be.

Havent fondled any trilogy in quite some time, but Id guess something of theirs? Definitely not an Innova/DM/Millenium mold.

I feel like the yellow one is the Buzzz and the purple is a EMac Truth. Now I want to take a closer look at my Buzzzes.

My thoughts at first too. Bottom half of the yellow disc has an odd "second curve" part like a Valkyrie or something in the first picture...made me second guess and ultimately switch my answer.

I did initially think yellow was the Buzzz.

I think it's the right, non-yellow one, based exclusively on the location of the parting line. The PL looks too high up on the edge compared to the Buzzz. I, too, may be wrong. And funny enough, I think I've thrown a Truth once, and none of the other Buzzz imitations.

I'm also curious what the yellow disc is and what plastic. Is the Buzzz ESP?

Man, you guys are good.

The bluish disc on the right is indeed a Buzzz. The yellow disc on the left is a Westside Gatekeeper.




I was a little surprised some people thought it might be a truth. I have one in the stash and I dont recall it being very Buzzz-like in feel. Maybe next time Im looking through my discs Ill take another look at it.

For me, the Gatekeeper feels and flies like a well used ESP Buzzz. Ive thrown Buzzzes on and off and always liked the feel in the hand and flight of the flatter ones. Ive always felt that the Z or ESP plastic was a little too slick for my tastes (although the older ESP wasnt too bad) and Ive always had random early releases with those plastics more than any other.

I pretty much forgot I had a couple of Gatekeepers as I got them when they first came out and threw them in a field a few times and put them away.
