Does anyone have any comments on Meteor vs Buzzz SS?

Meteor has more glide and will be flippier out of the box. SS is better for low ceiling shots, but doesn't get the same late turn that I can produce with a Meteor. Meteor also powers down better for me.

For me the Buzzz SS is to close to a Buzzz . . . a new SS flies like a just slightly beaten in Buzzz.

Meteor is more US but not as much as you might think . . i have started to throw Archer to have that more US slot

Exactly the conclusion I came to a long time ago. Glad I am not the only one. Another option that I like is a lighter Z FLX Buzzz. I also throw an Archer as well. Sometimes throw a Stratus X when I want that really redonkulous understable option - which can be a ton of fun to throw if you do it right.

A 168g Z FLX Buzzz replaced my Buzzz SS. . . 168g Z FLX, 175g ESP and 177g CryZtal Buzzz covers most of my mid throws

The one disc i would like to try in that US slot is the DGA Tremor

When did Discraft start penning weights on discs? Is it just some of the 1st run McBeths? Did they just run out of stickers in the rush to get these out the door?

I think the roach is going to keep its spot over the Luna. Something about the Luna just doesn't feel quite right in my hand. They drive very similarly and the roach seems to stay in the air a bit easier on putts which will help on longer putts. I wouldn't mind if they made a roach in a firmer plastic though. I would still like it to be a little tackier though as I still found the Luna's to be a little slick on my hands.

It seems to me that Paul is one of those guys that prefers baseline or middle level plastic for mids and putters, particularly the putters. I wonder if he'll start to use some X, but it looks like he jumped straight to jawbreaker and similar plastic right off the bat. I think he would do okay with the Roach except that he would need it in Big Z.

I've had a number of weights inked onto Discraft discs, so it's not too surprising. I don't know the rhyme or reason though. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least one Buzzz, Surge, Nuke, and Challenger. I'm too lazy to go look for more.

Pretty much my decision as well. I find the Luna a touch more stable but it's pretty close. D Roach just feels a bit better to me for putting. They are close enough for throwing that it's not worth switching for me.
