Yes, the texture is the same but the RB Buzzz might be a hair softer

LOVE the flight of the RB Buzzz but its not very durable

Haha...definitely going to start using this on the green. And if a cheaper base plastic Luna comes out, then the "Coarse Man's Luna".

I've thrown several of both, all runs available as of yet.

They're basically exactly the same thing. Same basic flights, same basic feels, same torque resistance.

Same disc. We've even taken calipers to these things. They fall within the same caliper measurements. If there is a difference you'd need precision laser measurement systems to find it.

Don't you find it funny how everytime he was waiting on his disc runs he was practicing hard core with Roaches of similar plastics? Before he got his be first run on Lunas he was practicing with Jawbreaker Roaches, Before he got his big Z Lunas he was practicing hard with Big Z Roaches.

Not saying I don't believe you, I'm just going to need to see some data.

Hehe, go buy the hype.

The differences between Roach and Luna in flights are as negligible as Roach to Roach in differing plastics.

I sold my 3 Lunas and bought a bunch of Roaches.

Seems all Paul did not like was the dome on the Roach, like that affected the grip/feel of the disc.

That’s crazy, my big z Luna doesn’t fly under stable at all. My crystal and big z are almost identical. I wonder how many trees he’s hit with his big z?

The Proto has a very "gritty" feel with a lot of texture in the plastic
The First runs are smoother and more like a "hard Jawbreaker" . . and i think it less stable
Stock run...same feel as First run. a hair softer and a hair more stable
ESP feels like the new ESP, flies straight
CryZtal, harder and more grippy than Z . .the most stable Luna
Never felt or thrown the Big Z
