I bought a Buzzz OS last year and immediately liked the raised letters. Since it's only in two spots, you can choose where you want to hold it.

I have two old Lightning discs with raised lines that go all the way around the inside of the rim. I can see where that would be a problem if you didn't like the feel, but I always did which is probably why I like the raised lettering on the Buzzz.

It's funny, raised lettering on the inside of the rim doesn't really concern me very much when using a power grip. However, for putting in the circle I use a fan grip and my fingers extend pretty much to the center of the bottom plate and lettering in that area bothers me a lot. Some of the worst in this regard are Vibram or Gateway discs. I definitely have to rotate the disc so I can't feel the lettering on them.

I have one of Tobu Disc's first protos, and it had part of the disc smooth, then progressed in different grits of texture. Can't remember the ratio, but I think it was half smooth, then the other half, was divided into 3 different levels. Great idea imo.

Interesting. I wonder if this had a "broken in" type effect on the disc right off the shelf.

Doesn't bother me in the least. Kind of like the feeling of it on forehands.

I do to on the Z plastic especially when griping the disc period. Some Z can be slick in runs more so then any plastic except maybe the Jolly launcher version of Champion, something I stay way from or do the hot car method to as I did for 1 hour to some Champion Destroyers that were the Jolly Launcher version. Discraft slick versions of Z plastic at least can have flex to it so when I get the slick Z, the raised lettering comes in handy. Namely this works for the Z stalker I use, 1 or 2 of the backups are the slight flex slick plastic so the raised letters and numbers on those discs will come in handy.

Hot car method?
So the direct sunlight gets rid of the slickness? Hmm. Looks at Buzzz Z, and the C-line PD.

I actually really like the lettering. Almost with the names of the discs were longer so that the words were on more of the disc. Zone is too short for my full hand for backhand throws haha

Yep should work for C line as that is Champion. I did that same thing to a Stiff slick Z Wasp from 2008 from a tournament with tournament stamp and the disc did get less stiff but got more slick to the point I could not use the disc at all. The Max weight Z Wasp is not really usable but I still keep due to being in that tournament. As long as the Z disc you have is not super stiff to the point of might not pass flex test, you should be okay. Mine was the might not pass flex test run of Stiff slick Z.
