Default shark vs buzzz

So I'm looking into a new purchase...

I have a shark I got used from a guy and like it...its just super understable and doesnt come back hardly at all...it fills agood roll and i'm going to keep it...that said I have a roc that is much more stable and i like it as well...I'm looking for something inbetween...not sure if a new shark would be the way to go or try a buzz or something...just curious as to opinions

Also, something leading me to a buzz is that i've never thrown one and would like to see the difference between it and a roc...

The feel between the roc and buzzz is a big one. Try out a Buzzz SS, I promise you will love it.

Is the Shark you have a super beat DX? The Shark brand new will be more like a Roc. Buzzz will be the disc you're looking for.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it is...

I'm pretty new so I don't know a ton about mats or w/e...i just know I get this thing flat and it kinda...gradually annys out and then straightens out at that line i guess...hard to explain maybe lol....at a little bit of a hyzer it goes pretty straight, but im not that consistent when i start messing with release angles yet

Any shark, that a new player is turning over, is a beat in DX for sure.

I say try the Buzz SS since you are a new player. Most new Sharks are slightly overstable at the end of the flight. You also might want to try a Cobra. When I take someone new to play with me I give them a Cobra and a putter, (Magnet or Aviar).

Could be, but I have seen some overstable discs that are so beat up, you can't hyzerflip them.

Its not a "flip" at all...its a VERY gradual thing...i throw it a little over 250 consistantly, and occasionally get more out of it with a tailwind...if i throw it straight down a line with zero wind or w/e...i'd say by the time it gets 250 out its prolly 30 ft right of the line? and doesnt really get off the line until halfway there... not saying I'm throwing perfect...but i know what it looks like when u oat and flip a disc over because i do it all the time......and i dont think this is what i'm doing....like i said...got the disc used form someone who'd played alot...so i dunno.....it doesnt have any markings as far as what it is material wise so i'd guess that means dx...

You guys make it seem like Sharks are super stable... A new DX Shark should be right in between a new Roc and a beat Shark
