Nobody can deny that there are a plethora of disc golf discs available. There are discs manufactured for every possible throw in every possible course condition. Some discs vanish into the misty background of history as other, newer molds take their place and dominate the spotlight for a while. Players and disc enthusiasts can’t seem to get enough. Do most of us really need new discs, or do we merely strive to convince ourselves of the necessity?
Some discs hold a strong place in the game for many years, managing to stay in player bags, fortifying their reputation as disc golf staples. They manage not to be replaced or discontinued due to their ongoing popularity. The Buzzz by Discraft has been one of those discs that has held a strong reputation as the best-known and best-selling mid-range disc on the market. It has been produced in many plastic types since it was PDGA approved on September 30th, 2003. It has inspired the more understable version in the Buzzz SS which was PDGA approved on February 21st, 2008, and the more recent overstable Buzzz OS which was PDGA approved on July 19th, 2014.
Another disc manufactured by Discraft is the Banger-GT putter, which is a unique putter which introduced a “groove track” on the top of the disc which gives it an interesting feel and grip. The thumb rests inside the indentation that encircles the disc. The Banger-GT was PDGA approved on October 31st, 2005, only a couple of years after the Buzzz, but has really only enjoyed a cult following among players, rather than the massive fame of the Buzzz.
Somewhere along the line, Discraft decided to combine the Buzzz disc with the unique “groove track” of the Banger-GT to create the Buzzz-GT. The history of the Buzzz-GT is a little bit fuzzy but it didn’t remain in regular production at Discraft. Oddly, old website pages can be found declaring that the disc was discontinued in December of 2007, yet the PDGA shows the Buzzz-GT as being approved on February 21st, 2008, the same day as the Buzzz SS.
Regardless of how long it stayed in production and when it was approved, the number of Buzzz-GT discs in the market diminished quickly and it became a hard disc to find. Fans and collectors found themselves paying high prices on EBay for the rare groove track mid-range. Yet Buzzz-GT discs showed up from time to time as special event discs, pulled out of the archives as a sort of novelty.
Now, as part of the 2016 Ledgestone Insurance Open series of special edition discs, Infinite Discs arranged to bring back a limited edition manufacturing run of Buzzz-GT’s in Discraft’s Cryztal Plastic. Now the groove track can be found on a Buzzz once again for those who want to try out the disc’s unique feel. They are available in blue, yellow, green and pink with that beautiful, translucent look and an exclusive stamp design.
Now that most of the VIP Club subscribers have received their 2nd disc in the series, we’re happy to reveal it here. These are the two VIP Series Discs that have been released so far:
Titanium Undertaker by Discraft (May)
DyeMax Defender by Dynamic Discs (June)
Both discs have been enthusiastically received by subscribers. For those who are interested in joining the club, we have about 15 more subscriber spots available before we reach our limit for the next few releases. At that point, joining will only be possible if a previous subscriber drops out and leaves a vacancy.
Monday, July 11th 2016 is the cut-off date to join the club and still be within the payment cycle for disc #2 (Defender). After that date, subscribers will enter into the cycle for disc #3. The discs for the third installment of the series are already at our warehouse and will start shipping very soon. Other discs are planned and are looking like exciting additions to the program, presenting not only a variety of manufacturers, but a variety of disc types as we wrap up the summer and head into the autumn season.
