Default Plastic stability

I'm looking at using Discraft for my mids, and i currently use a Big Z Buzzz and Big Z BuzzzOS but looking for something in between. I was thinking maybe a Buzzz in a different plastic that might be more OS than a Big Z version. Would a Ti version do that? How would you rank Buzzz stability using the plastic they're available in?

Glow Buzzz is usually the most OS version.

My Buzzz is in Ti plastic, but I don't have another plastic version of the Buzzz to compare it with. I do have a Ti Avenger SS and a Z Avenger SS, and the Ti one is a little bit more stable.

I've heard Ti Buzzz's were the most OS. I know that my Ti Buzzz OS's are beefier than my regular Z.
I've gone the other route and gotten lighter weight Big Z Buzzz OS's to beat in and bridge the gap. (BTW, the ESP Buzzz OS will be available sometime in April.)

As far as Glo Buzzz's....Discraft uses so little glow material in their Z Glo plastic, I feel that while it might be true for Innova's glow discs (which glow so much better than Discraft) the variation between Z and Z-Glo is negligible.

I used to be a Buzzz thrower, and the 2 Ti's I owned were definitely the most overstable (followed by Cryztal). They were definitely more overstable than the Glo Z I had. That was before Big Z was around so I don't know how it compares though.

The Glo Z Buzzz's do tend to be overstable, but the one that I had was so flat that it barely seemed like a Buzzz at all. Currently, my most overstable non-Glo is a Big Z that's also very flat, but my second most overstable is a max weight Z. Not sure plastic is the main thing here... I haven't thrown Ti, so I can't comment.

My suggestion would just be to look for a flat, heavy Buzzz. If you haven't tried Glo Z, it's worth a try unless you don't like it for some other reason. I had always heard they were the most overstable, but that seems to be different from what I'm reading here.

Yes. I'm just wanting some knowledge. I know that there are some plastics that change the shot shape and was looking to see what people on here might have more knowledge about than I do. I don't know a huge amount of Discraft. I'm more accustomed to Innova and Discmania but I like the feel and flight of the buzzz and buzzzOS but wanted to see if there was something out of the box slightly more stable than a BigZ buzzz which is what I currently have

Most HSS Buzzz

Finally Found that Beefcake Buzzz

Any difference in stability Z vs Glow Plastic

Most overstable Buzzz plastic?

I kept my search to the first 10 out of 20 or so pages. Search function is wonderful if you want knowledge.
