Z Plastic ftw. Start out with the Buzz SS, then add a regular Buzz and finally add a Buzz OS. Those 3 discs will allow you to shape pretty much any line you can dream of.

Started with a Z Buzzz, went to a Champion Roc3, went back to my Z buzzz shortly after. The Roc3 was beat in, just never felt right for me so I traded it off for a few drivers. If you're a fresh newb, go with the Buzzz in my opinion, great flyer and you can do pretty much anything with it. Also may check out the Truth, I bought one a few weeks back and the buzzz hardly sees playing time anymore.

It depends on what your friends goals are. If he wants to take disc golf somewhat seriously and get better then he should probably start with a roc and/or comet. These discs are slow and really need some good releases to get the best out of them. I personally have used all three (comet Buzzz and roc) but I tossed the rocs because I don't like the multiple stages of wear philosophy when it comes to base plastic. Sometimes I'd have shots missing simply because certain discs were not as broken in. I switched to discraft mids and never looked back. Comet fell out of my back simply because I carry three mids that cover everything the comet can do and a putter that handles those pretty touch shots.

As far as Buzzz being inconsistent? I've really only seen it between different plastic types and weights. I've handled a few esp Buzzz and they all flew the same. Same thing with z.

Also you could look into the mako, I couldn't find a buzzz at my local pias (shocking but they are fairly disorganized and buy a lot of discs from a lot of companies)... So I bought my bro a mako and he loves it.

I would second the Mako for a first disc. I think a Panther, Coyote or Comet are good suggestions too.

The Buzzz will offer a cleaner release for new players who aren't used to a bead.

They are also more forgiving to bad form/torque.

Heck, if they're beginners, the inconsistencies in their game will outweigh the differences between these discs. Just getting them any decent midrange is a step in the right direction, one that a lot of beginners skip. It's not as if they'll be committed to whichever disc for the rest of their disc golf career.
