Two of the most bagged mid range discs, with the Discraft Buzzz being the most popular in its class.
One is time tested, the other is closer to being the new kid on the block.
You can't go wrong with either, but chances are you will prefer one over the other.
It has a medium sized rim so it fits most hand sizes. It also has a very flat top. The Discraft Buzzz is beadless, which can be a deal breaker for some (whether you prefer one or not).
The rim width is wider on the MD3 than it is on the Buzzz. The rim depth is also deeper, making it more attractive to those with bigger hands (in theory). In contrast to the beadless Buzzz, the MD3 has a microbead. Beads make discs more stable.
Because it only comes in C-Line plastic, it narrows down the feel even more. Although this newer C-Line plastic (Italian made) lives up to the hype.
High flex plastic and considered an all weather blend.
Pro-caliber, high performance plastic.
The very best for both appearance and performance.
Maximum durability plastic with reliable flight patterns and a wide range of colors.
Great grip with wide array of colors at a low price point. The downside is low durability.
Highly durable plastic that also provides a good grip in a variety of conditions. Typically low cost which makes it a great value buy.
A basic plastic that glows in the dark.
A durable plastic with beautiful opaque colors. Made for good grip in all weather and will flex under pressure.
Discmania's most durable plastic.
The Chroma plastic is extremely durable and catches the eye with its distinct pearlescent look. The Iron Samurai 4 in the Chroma plastic feels firm and grippy in hand to give you the extra bit of confidence when you're preparing to slice it straight through the narrow fairway.
The Discraft Buzzz comes in significantly more plastics.
One reason this might be a benefit is different plastics will affect the flight path, meaning some plastics are more stable than others.
You could end up with multiple Buzzz's for different shot shapes; one for stable, and one that's less stable for shots that require turn.
On the other hand, the simplicity of the C-Line MD3 makes it more predictable and straightforward.
