Whichever one has the most shade right?

I don't think you're ever going to get away with just cycling Buzzzes. That disc flies well on powered anhyzer shots, but it doesn't fly well at lower speeds. That slow late turn is very difficult to achieve with a Buzzz.

Some molds naturally work better for cycling. I would say that you'd be better off trying to cycle Wasps, but they need a stiffer baseline plastic to do that. The many Z Wasps I've had have never developed any significant amount of turn.

It was interesting when Dave was describing what he thought the flight path of a Buzz, before he threw the disc, he was actually describing the flight path of a Comet.

I've hovered close enough to some Innova Pros to overhear what they were saying and I was surprised how completely oblivious they were about non-Innova discs. I would think if you were a pro disc golfer and a disc as big as the Buzzz came out that they would borrow one and field throw it to find out what the deal is, but it seems they don't.

I remember being told once that someone asked Paul McBeth if he'd like to try an MVP disc, and he replied that he couldn't because his Innova contract forbade him to throw any other brand of disc (i.e. he could only throw Innova/Discmania). That is probably a true story, certainly I have no reason to not believe it, and it's likely true for all Innova-contracted pros as well as McBeth.

Also, when changing over from Innova to Discraft, Valarie Jenkins Doss said that she was trying out the Discraft discs and that she'd never thrown any of them before. One would think that with her husband Nate Doss being Discraft-sponsored, she'd have tried some of his discs in some 'undisclosed locaton' in secret. Then again, she really might not have tried Discraft before switching.

TL;DR: due to contract obligations, it's no surprise that Innova players might have no clue about non-Innova discs....

So you can beat a Roc from overstable to understable, and when it's beat into that sweet spot in-between it's pretty much just straight. At that point it's fairly similar to a Mako3, although it's a slower flight with more glide to it than a Mako3.
Crisp explanation. Maybe i will check out some roc's when i get my bh game going.

I've had a few friends move into sponsored roles and they've cleaned out their closets or so they say.. I think one guy hid a box in his Attic I can't see him parting with his Cobras but either way they both have taken it seriously and don't want to screw it up.

My Halloween envy came from a guy in California who got sponsored by Trilogy or Latitude.
