Yea. I think I’ve owned at least 1 of every Buzz-on ever released, other then the Termite. The only one I currently still own is a Limited Edition Neon Green/Black Element X made for JD’s YoYoBestBuy.com w/ JD Designed Caps. Still one of my favorite throws. I originally liked the Buzz-on Element X cause it was basically an original Freehand (same body shape) with Metal Weight Rings, Wider Gap and Less Responsive Pads.

You may not be able work out the vibe on a lot of the Buzz-ons, they were notorious for bad vibe. Later releases got a bit better, but generally vibe was to be expected. I didn’t much care for their undersized products, they seemed to have considerable more vibe. Maybe I was just unlucky. My favorites were the Element X and the Blaze.
I don’t remember hearing anything about a “DV8 incident” but I did fall off the face of the planet for awhile. I do know that Dave Bazan had some personal problems for awhile.
