ESP Buzzz's made over the last few years have been on the OS side. They've been great & I hope they keep coming. Especially the PMB's.

I'd like to see PP have an ESP Buzzz signature that would be made in the 160g's & with a little softer of a blend. Something different than the beefier PMB's that are all over the place.

I miss the straighter, softer ESP's that were made years back. I've got a couple I was able to find off eBay but I'd love to see them come back.

What are ya'lls thoughts on understable mids? I'm deciding between beating in an elite-x Buzzz, Buzzz SS, and Meteor. Not a fan of the Comet (I can throw it fine, but it's a little too squirrely in the wind)...while I know the Buzzz isn't exactly the best wind fighter either, the Comet just isn't for me.

Haven’t thrown the buzzz ss but I’ve tossed a meteor around a little and it’s a nice disc. Comet-ish fligh with more of a buzzz feel.

I've been throw a jb wasp for my us mid duties. If you don't want to pay a premium and I don't blame you then a buzzz ss is a great choice. The buzzz ss was the disc I used before I made the switch to the jb wasp. A fresh esp buzzz ss can handle some power when thrown flat. Then it beats into a hyzer flip machine. It is very comfortable in the hand unlike the comet imo.

I honestly thought my buzzz ss wasnt flippy enough. It just reminded me of a broken in buzzz, just lazer straight with minimal fade.

A Meteor will have great glide and natural turn. I vote for that.

Most buzzz throwers I know tend to lean on the Meteor or the Prodigy M4 for off the shelf understable mids. The buzzzSS, anecdotally, seems to be too similar to a buzzz off the shelf, but wears in much faster.

This is interesting, because I've had a more similar experience to emoney and victor (from what I remember throwing a Z SS way back in the day) where it's a little too straight for an understable mid, but ya'll are mentioning that it beats up faster? Is it that since it's a straighter disc that when it does beat up it's more noticeable? Also, thanks for the replies, sounds like Meteor or Buzzz SS. I already throw a Buzzz and the OS, so I may as well have the trio...

I still haven't tried an M4. Think I need to get one & see how it fits. Prodigy plastic is so good.
