The Buzzz GT – Exclusive Infinite Discs Cryztal Edition

Let’s talk a bit about the Buzzz GT

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.

DSC06043Now, 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.

Infinite Discs VIP Club – Disc #1 Revealed

The first exclusive disc for the Infinite Discs VIP Club has been shipped to the first subscribers, and the online buzz has been fun to watch. Pictures of the disc have shown up and new subscribers have joined in the last few days because of the excitement about the program.  So, we’ll add to the noise and go ahead and reveal the first disc in the VIP series, now that most subscribers have it in their hands. Here is a photo of what subscribers received:

The disc is the popular new UNDERTAKER by Discraft in silver Titanium (TI) plastic. It is the first Titanium Undertaker out there, and it is a wonderful overstable control driver. Of course, the stamp is exclusive, designed by Kimbri, who will be working with a lot of the exclusive VIP discs. Discraft also threw in a nice sticker for subscriber’s vehicles.

Also in the initial package to subscribers is a metallic gold VIP bag tag. Each tag is individually numbered. We encourage mutual VIP Club members to challenge other tag holders to friendly games for tag order. Have fun with that! Or, protect your tag if you are skittish about challenges. Regardless, it might be fun to see if you can spot any other VIP players out on the fairways.  Or, get your friends who play to join so you can get some VIP club rivalries going with the tag order– that’s what we’re doing here at Infinite Discs (I’m going to win #2 one of these days…you know who you are).

If you are interested in joining the Infinite Discs VIP Club, there are still some spots available before we cap the membership for the next few months. If you join before June 11th, then you’ll still get disc #1 shipped to you automatically as your first disc. After that day (Saturday, June 11th) we will enter into the period for disc #2. So, after that point, you would not automatically receive the silver Titanium Undertaker.

A few people have asked how many of these discs exist. In answer, it is printed on the disc itself. There are 500 of disc #1. We will NOT make more. The fun of the VIP Club is that we’re keeping each disc as limited editions because we want to see the value go up with time. We want the discs in the hands of the collectors and enthusiasts. We want them to be collectible rarities that you can either hang on your wall, or throw on the fairway.

Will the number always be 500? Well…no. We started with a higher number. The next discs will not be as numerous.  The future discs will also have the quantity declared on the stamp design.

Disc #2 in the series will ship to subscribers toward the end of this month. No…we’re not saying what it is. We don’t want to ruin that “Christmas morning” feeling for everybody who will be watching their mail boxes. 😉
