I only do that to Impacts when I am no longer able to grip the disc well as I have too much dirt in the cross hatches or my old stiff Pro D Magnet is getting slicker then I want, the disc will be very slick still just not super mega slick anymore.

Mcbeth throwing the buzzz on hole 14 at the tdtm. Fantastic way to show off why that disc is perfectly balanced and legendary.
Its nice to see one being thrown on lead cards. Nate was great but spotty with his tourney play the last few years.
Cant wait to see more footage

That is showcasing how neutral the mold is. I use a Shark 3 in almost the same way. If Innova stopped making the Shark 3 then a Buzz is what I would get a nice Z and ESP Buzz for different conditions. I like that shape of midrange without a bead, the Wasp/ROC shape but no bead.

McBeth throwing the Buzzz throughout TDTM round 1 was impressive. The Buzzz and McBeth combination looks like it's going strong and has quite a future.

I threw 2 170-172 kongs against my hurricanes and my 170 z force today.

One kong was domey, one was flat. They were both much more similar to a force than a hurricane. Maybe a slightly seasoned force when new would be a better comparison. In my opinion, the kong has more high speed and low speed stability compared to a hurricane. Basically spot on from the stability rating of 1.9 and about exactly what I expected.

Easier for me to make comparisons when many factors are all on the same page a la oils/dirt etc. Yes I also give my bag [discs] a good bath after every few dirty rounds/one real wet and muddy one. Yes I always use the same soap FWIW
what kind of soap do you use

Same for a few of my discs old stiff Pro D Magnet and then the Impact's when the cross hatches get filled in with dirt and just water is not getting that out.

Managed to get a hold of two unused, max weight Z Crush's last year. Bought them from the PDGA store of all places. Just put one of them in my bag today & had a blast throwing it. It's such a great mold for os FH shots that I can throw on hard anyhyzers & it always fights out for distance. Still upset DC put it oop. Maybe the best os speed 11 ever molded. Incredible compliment to my Wraith. I've only got the two but maybe I can still find some heavy unused Crushes out there.
