Default Mini Buzzz

Is the Mini Buzzz a good toss & catch disc? Looks like it would make a great mini but I was thinking of picking up a few if they are good throwers too.

Too big to be a legal mini.

The Lil Wizzes are in a softer plastic and seem to be better catch discs. The MB is fun too though.

You can't use them to mark in PDGA tourneys?

No. Plus, they'd be a pain in the arse.

Discraft says it is a legal mini. The PDGA the rules say otherwise. Buzzz mini 6" dia. = 15.24 cm

A legal pdga mini is between 7 and 15 cm and not higher than 3cm. Not that it should matter but...

btw, I just measured a tin of Copenhagen and determined that it does not meet the legal definition because it is less than 7cm in dia. Danggit.

Philo used a Cheeseburger as a mini one time, and we're going to call a fault on someone for .24cm?

I would never call someone out for using a Mini Buzzz as a marker. Just pointing out what the rules say. That story about the cheeseburger mini is classic. Did he finish the burger?

I once played with a guy who used a bottle of gold bond powder as a mini

They are fun to throw, but I wouldn't want to play catch with one. Lil wizard is a better call.
