If you were take these numbers seriously, you'd think the Roc3 is more stable. And you'd be right. But also, the flight rating system is not an exact science. Use it as a starting point. Getting feedback from others and testing a disc yourself is always recommended. You can learn more about disc golf numbers below.

HOW THEY FEEL

The plastic you choose will greatly affect how a disc feels in your hand, but the mold itself will feel a certain way regardless.
How does the Discraft Buzzz feel in the hand?

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).

How does the Discmania Roc3 feel in the hand?

The Roc3 has a slightly bigger diameter than the Buzzz. The rim width is also a bit wider, and its also a wee bit taller. In contrast to the beadless Buzzz, the Roc3 has a bead, and beads make discs more stable.
For most people, you either love or hate the bead. That might be all you need to know in choosing between these two powerhouse mid ranges.
