Review: My wife bought this disc a couple years ago as she wanted to start playing. She has not continued her interest in the game and gave me the disc. This disc has become my favorite side arm disc for long straight shots. It flies striaght about 10 feet off the ground with little fade.

Review: For someone looking for the perfect roller this one may be the disc for you. Very worn in it becomes very understable. Thrown flat or on a slight hyzer it will flatten out then turn over into a roller. All this with a 8-10 foot off the ground flight. I use this roller when I want the roller to turn over and go right, or when I want a roller but the disc needs to start out low to the ground. When it is a bit newer it can be used as a sky roller for max distance.

I like this disc as a roller because once it is worn in all you have to do is throw it low, flat and at the target, the disc will do the rest.

Review: This is THE disc for beginners. I started out with a 171 g. disc in the Elite X plastic. After losing it, I HAD to replace it. My new XS is 174 g. and I do not notice much difference in flight. While this disc may seem a bit difficult for beginners to play with at first, it doesn't take to long for new players to work themselves up to the power necessary to throw this disc (which isn't much). However, I still cannot throw the bigger drivers, so this disc has consistantly delivered VERY GOOD distance for me. It is a very straight disc and can handle anhyzers nicely as well. This disc and any version of the Buzz are MUST HAVES for beginners!!!!!

Review: The Elite X XS was my first disc, and was never really remarkable to me until I started turning discs over. I'd had it in my box the whole time as I'd found other discs I was more successful throwing. Recently, I took it out of the box and put it in my bag to see what I thought of it now that I've got some technique and was fairly pleased with the results when I threw it with some anhyzer, but I still find it fairly unremarkable otherwise. I've seen a review of the Elite Z Xpress on here that says it's got about the same characteristics, and I'd say I agree. About the one thing I'd note to anyone looking to pick one up is this: Much like a DX Leopard or an Xpress of any plastic, if you send it right, it's NOT fading back before it hits the ground and skips.

The best combo of predictability and distance out there. My main driver and also my longest disc. How many other discs can boast this?? Also quite durable in elite plastic and when it does wear, it turns into a nice long annie disc. Buy one you'll like it.

The Elite Pro XS (non-Z) is a good straight long distance driver. Flies straight in the high speed and has very little low speed fade. Also does not glide in the low speed very much. Slick Elite plastic takes some getting used to, but is much easier to adjust to than the Z plastic. This allows me grip it and get a good snap. The XS is my favorite disc and also becomes a good long gentle anhyzer disc (similar to Elite Z XPress) when worn.

The XS Elite Pro flies straight and fast depending on the user. If the user has a low forehand throw it should fly X-tremely well for most users. I recamend this disc to advanced players. It is light weight and thin for long range throws. The disc is easy to spot in any background.
