I have a Ledgestone 2017 Cryztal Sparkle that seems pretty overstable, but lacks some of that Buzzz glidey goodness. I also don't think I've ever thrown a Buzzz 350', certainly not on a golf line, so maybe I'm not the arm you want advice from.

That said, my Big Z Buzzz is the one I have that resembles what you're talking about. Beefy without much (if any) turn, yet the glide is good, so it's one of my longest Buzzzes. It's the only Big Z I've thrown, but if you can find a similar one it would work for your shot.

You could try a Buzzz OS or a Ti Buzz. The Ti Buzzz is probably your best option. Its beefier than a normal Buzzz and has the late fade you speak of.

Buzzz OS is a great complement to an OS buzzz; feels similar, but flies way OS will little glide.

On all the buzzz threads, the Z Glo is reported most consistently as OS. You hear someone mention they have a freakishly S/OS Ti buzzz or something here and there but Z Glo seems to be a good go to.

If you're willing to try a different mold, as mentioned a Verdict would be a good choice - the microbead is not enough to interfere or bug anyone used to gripping a buzzz, and they are very stable and do glide. I would think you'd want a less stable plastic like bio to get it closer to a stable buzzz off the shelf.

Finally, a Wasp is the clear choice if you are cool with a bead.

you will spend more time trying to find that specific flight when you could just season up a wasp or grab another mold from a diff company. i went through this for years with my buzzz's trying to be minimalistic but it didnt work and always took risks trying to buy a buzzz in that spot.

Heavy Z (regardless of Glow or FLX blend etc) is your best bet. However, Booter is right you should probably just use a different mold.

IDK, I know what OP is looking for - I disagree on the Verdict, in theory it should be slightly more OS buzz, but for me it had too much turn then a late fade or if you hyzer if - it would hyzer really hard, its too thin and throwing buzz lines weren't straight enough (for me, and based on 1 Opto Verdict 176g - it could have been a fluke, and honest, I really like the feel of the verdict and wanted to love it, so maybe there are others that are better HSS)

I WOULD agree that a Max weight Z Glow Buzzz is a good answer, but make sure the disc is more opaque than tanslucent.

I have a Z Glow that is almost see-through in the flight plate and its bendy ---- NOT as OS as you'd want. My other one that is more opaque in the flight plate feels firmer and flies GREAT, nice and stable with hyzer finish.

I dislike the microbeads on the Truth and Verdict. The additional .2 mm added to the rims of those is what does it.

OP: I can push my max weight Tour Series Z's out to 350 with only needing the slightest hyzer, but would rather just disc up to a 6 or 7 speed with much more accuracy. Swirl ESP Buzzzes are on the OS side as well (I think the most OS Buzzz), then Ti. I've only owned 4 Glo, but I don't think there is any difference between it the stacks of Z I've owned.

Max weight should be plenty stable to get it out that far and hold straight (except in headwind.) You might be releasing with a slight anny? Here is Doss throwing a Glo with at least 350 ft of power given the incline on this hole (McBeth uses a speed 7 or 8, for reference): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cuw8...tu.be&t=20m44s

Good point! Less Glo material in the mix, less beefy flight plate, probably won't get a significant change in stability. Only opaque Glo Z I have by Discraft is the second runs of Doss's Tour Series Buzzzes, and they were good and stable to begin with.

What mid are you throwing now out of curiosity?

I tried glow MD3's and found them to be very similar to glow buzzes. Although I tried a 5502 MD3. I have not tried the luster MD3, which I believe are suppose to have more stability.
