Lost beat Buzzz is tougher to replace than a lost new Buzzz SS.
For me a beat Buzzz has more turn/fade than a new Buzzz SS that mostly goes straight
I have tried to have a beat and a new Buzzz in the bag, and it works. . but i think a new Buzzz SS/Buzzz combo is better

$9.99 retail at the shop, Stones were $14.99. Strongly giving thought to trying the Steady BL just for the plastic options. Haven't seen any new JB Roaches on the shelf in quite a while.

Buzzz/Comet or Wasp/Comet would be even better.

Don't forget the motivational speech on the underside also.

This has always been my preferred approach but most people will tell you that their favorite disc is the one in their bag that could be mistaken for a dog toy. I dont get it. I dont like the feeling of a warped or chunked up disc. It made sense when we only had D plastic and limited molds but now we have Ti/Z and more molds than anyone could ever need.

I dont think the average player throws enough to cycle premium plastic. I know the pros do it but they play like five days a week, probably throw faster than you and they have ample opportunities to cherry pick for parting line/dome.

Unless you have the older ESP from the era in 2009 to late 2017 or late 2018 is when ESP was made softer almost like a 3-5x more durable then X, not the 8-10x like the pre late 2007 ESP plastic. Yeah at one point ESP was a softer not durable plastic that if playing in a place that had bunch of trees/stiffer bushes or had a number of rocks in the area of the course, the discs would get chipped up just hitting one of those objects on the course, even hitting the basket could do this. Also tops of some ESP discs in this era of ESP could end up with a waffle top if it hit a tree just right or was molded up with a flat top and the mold was not supposed to have a flat top.

I currently bag a buzzz and a beat stratus. However the stratus is almost too beat so I’m thinking of getting either a new stratus or a meteor.

For a Stratus that will not beat in, the Archer is almost the same disc. Unless you want the disc to be more US by beating in a little.

Question for the discraft nerds... Lol

I'm slowly beginning to enjoy throwing Discraft more and more, lately the Avenger SS in ESP. I played my local Ice Bowl and found that it was the perfect disc for my straight drives. That was at -20C. The second round it was only -8C and I noticed that it was Hyzer flipping into Narnia. I want a disc that will just flip to flat, and stay relatively straight on that flat line. Should I grab another Avenger SS in Z plastic for that extra stability or possibly disc up to the Thrasher? My average drives get me roughly 290-310

Thanks in advance!
Colin.
