Same here, I wouldn't trade one for the other. When I need a short OS shot, it's the Zone, when I want more distance and not as OS I go for the Buzzz OS.

I have an ultra reliable early run Buzzz-tooled Z Buzzz something or other, and have been looking to pick up whatever is being made nowadays that would be similar to it.

I bought and returned a Z Buzzz SS because they sent the wrong color, but I did throw it a few times and it just didn't behave the same as my beloved. It seemed too eager to flip and didn't have the graceful glide I expected.

Is a Z Buzzz OS what I'm looking for? The OS tells me it can handle a bit more power to flip up flat, but also tells me it will have more fade at the end.

What about those Titanium Buzzz's? While I'm not too excited about the easy-to-lose-in-foliage colorations, if it behaves like I can expect it to, I will always know where it went.
Also, are these SS or OS versions?

I assume you realize there's the Buzzz, Buzzz SS, and Buzzz OS. 3 discs in the family. If you were trying an SS, and that was too flippy, I'd just say try a "no S." A Z Buzzz is probably what you're looking for.

Ti Buzzz' are not going to be very overstable, but do hold the flight characteristics for years. I have a first run Doss sig Ti Buzzz that had three seasons of use and it still flies like the day I bought it.

If you're looking for an overstable Buzzz that will still be able to hyzerflip, the Titanium FLX Buzzz OS is where it's at if you have the power. Slightly more understable than the Z Buzzz OS in HSS and retains solid fade in LSS. They also come in brighter colors such as blue and pink so they are not as prone to hiding.

The biggest problem with colors was that the original Ti runs were not only neutral nature colors (green, orange, bronze) they were also color shift. So even if you got a Purple, it was a very muted purple and color shifted into green in the wrong light. I lost a couple Stalkers that way.

I was wrong, just checked my purchase history and it actually was the Elite Z Buzzz ".5" version that I bought and returned.
It had more dome to it than my OG one, but less glide.

Maybe just a fluke, maybe I'll give the same one another go and worst case scenario give it to a new player.

I definitely agree with this statement. I carry and throw both regularly. Both are great for forehand and backhand, and they fill two distinct spots in my bag. I highly recommend the Ti FLX (ledgestone special runs) plastic for both.

In that case, it sounds like an OS is what you're looking for. Could try a flatter Glo Z Buzzz too, of course.

Super excited to hear this. But does this mean regular production or just a limited release for Ledgestone?

If it's limited I have mix feelings. I want some but don't want to have to drop $20+ on a resale one.

I doubt you'll have to buy one in the secondary market. The last couple years, Infinite has had a pretty good supply of Ledgestone Edition discs which didn't sell out for months. They might have costed a little more than regular stock prices, but not too much, and the supply was definitely more than sufficient to meet the demand. I imagine if you want to try one of these, you'll have ample opportunity to buy a couple at the regular release price.
