FWIW I can say that my X buzzzes are molded perfectly, and have a very slight dome resembling the shape of a golden brown pancake, which is what I look for.

My lone remaining ESP FLX is perfectly molded and flat.

My McBeth Buzzzes are cleanly molded and have a bit of a chunky shoulder, but no discernable dome.

The biggest offenders were any kind of Z buzzz or bigZ as far as that overhang goes.

Bought a pair for throwing. Nice looking swirl, and I'm thinking the claw marks will look cool in flight (going to wipe the rest, because I too, think it is a bit busy).

It would make sense if they have been through a number of Buzzz molds, or that they have a number in rotation. Nothing a little (a lot?) of legal sanding won't fix but... cmon guys, it's a buzzz, keep it consistent.
Besides putters, the Buzzz is the most of one mold I own, and only came across that misalignment on one Z (and have only seen this with one other disc. An Ace Race (D/Soft X?) Roach.)

I might end up doing the same. Just received mine today and they look nice but there is a lot going on. I really hope they update the stamp on the signature discs and just leave off the claws.

^^^ I think we're on the same page... I'm saying I'm keeping just the claw marks. Too many other lines around the circle stamp.

I probably have 50 or 60 Buzzzes. Never noticed any misalignment. Most of mine would be older, I suspect.

Ti FLX is the closest I've found to ESP FLX. At least they still run it for Ledgestone at times, so if you're looking for them...

Got my 5x Buzzzes in the mail yesterday and they are immaculate. (The 5x Ti Undertaker had some flashing though...that's a first for me with that mold.)
