        They make Nukes in ESP that go down to the upper 160s. The release of the Z Nuke is tomorrow, with weights only ranging from 170-174.

          I wish someone, anyone, would make their fast discs in D plastic at light weights.

            What would the point of Pro D be over, say a Z buzzz?

              I don't throw them but I imagine they are a bit more grippy. They would also beat in faster if you are looking for that. You would have to ask a Discraft guy about flight differences off the shelve.

                If you like the feel of a Buzzz in your hand, then it will allow you to cover more shots with discs that are familiar to you (all one mold).

                A Pro D Buzzz will be grippier, a little less stable, and will beat in to be significantly less stable than your Z Buzzz.

                This will save you from learning a completely new disc, such as a Meteor or Glide, for these turning midrange shots.

                  I agree with everything Parks says....except I much prefer to learn another disc over "tuning" a disc through wear to throw the way you want it to. I appreciate the consistency of a disc like the Meteor over it's entire life (haven't been able to wear one out yet) instead of having one too many kicks with a D Buzzz and then needing to break another one in. This is why so many have flocked to the Buzzz....they don't have to wait for a new Roc to start flying the way a Buzzz does off the rack. And the bonus is when it is in the Z, ESP or FLX plastice it stays flying that way after the tree hits. Neato!

                    I want the faster discs to be made in D or DX because I'm a noodle arm, and the light D is my best hope to get a fast disc that even I can throw long (long, for me anyway). I don't want to get a new disc and have it be too overstable for me, and know it's going to be that way for the life of the disc.

                    Is a beat up DX Valk still the long throw record holder (820 feet with a 164g DX Valkyrie)? Why would that be?

                      I can't disagree with that, but the other side of the coin is that it takes very little time to break in a DX Roc to fly straight and just about forever to wear one past the point of being useful, unlike a D Buzzz. The flight plate will probably crack first.
