assuming each disc is 170ish, six discs would weigh 6*170/454 = 2.25 pounds
So there must be something else fun. What exactly is the hype over the 10 year buzzes?

They are OOP but, I didn't think they were that big of a deal. I have one from when they were released. The black midnight ones were really cool but expensive.

Got my notification... 4 pounds. I was hoping for a basket. Not sure what I hope for now. Never tried a backpack, that might be nice.

We will see on Saturday!

This is one of those things where the Discraft did something cool but the hype train is...misguided.

The OG first run buzzzs were fabled as one of the best runs of buzzz. Well, Discraft decided to run a throw-back stamp that _looked_ like the OG buzzz but flew like any other Z buzzz. People went bonkers and love the stamp because it looked like the buzzz that were actually tooled differently...but they were not tooled differently.

To each their own, they do look awesome, but they don't fly special, they just look special

In 2013 the 10 year Buzzz was for the 10th anniversary of the Buzzz release. It had the old school stamp and was molded from the original modified Wasp mold. Once ordering went live to retailers the original run of 10,000 10 Year Buzzz's sold out in about 10 minutes.
