What does the SS stand for in the Discraft Buzzz SS? Super Stable. The SS discs are made with beginners in there mind or players who don’t have amazing arm speed. This Mid Range disc is the brother of the most popular Mid Range in the history of the game, the original Buzzz. It’s perfect for people looking for the same type of flight path as a professional since they don’t have the same amount of power. The SS has started to become a staple in the Discraft lineup as they are flying so well for the consumers.

How can this disc ever compete against its juggernaut brother, the original Buzzz? This one is more stable and can you believe it, even straighter! Many people say the original movie is always better, but that’s not always the case. A lot of Disc Golfers believe this to be true for the Buzzz SS. If you like beat-in, well seasoned Discraft Buzzz discs, that’s exactly what the SS does right out of the box!
This straight as an arrow disc provides excellent accuracy throwing far or short with an ability to shape your shot the way you want. It's so much like the original Buzzz a lot of people questions what's the difference! Well, it's easier to throw making the distance farther, but for every positive, there will be a negative. The Buzzz SS won't have the ability to go farther than say the OS or original, but the ease of getting to the max distance potential is much easier.
This disc hasn’t been mainstream enough to provide stock for all plastic types just yet, but the take shall come in the future for sure. Currently, it’s being produced and held available in the higher end spectrum of disc types. This might be done on purpose as stated before, this disc flies like a beat-in Buzz. That being said, a beat-in SS …. We are getting very stable to the line of flippy. The current run of plastics won’t have this issue as flight characteristics barely change for premium plastics.

WHO BAGS THE Discraft Buzzz SS
So this disc is so stable does any professional disc golfers even throw it or is strictly for beginners? Absolutely not! For 2019 Tim Barham had this disc in the ESP plastic for his tour series disc that he’s absolutely thrilled to have. He has always loved the Buzzz as in his current 2019 bag for Mid Ranges he uses…. Buzzz SS, Buzzz and you guessed it…. Buzzz OS. WOW!
While it’s surprising professional uses the SS it’s not shocking considering the massive anhyzer shots you can see throwing it. The glide is superb just like the original and no question if you feel the main disc is too hard to throw, grab a SS as it will fit you perfectly. This disc is great for starting players and ones without massive arm strength.
