Which Roc3 = Wasp

I love Wasps...they were new to my bag this year and it has become my favorite disc in the bag. However, with winter firmly upon us, I can't hold the disc. Since the Wasp only comes in Z plastic, I am going to have to get something that is close that comes in a different plastic.

The flight of the Wasp is, for my power level, straight with a consistent fade at the end with no chance of turning over. It's not a meathook but never gets flippy either. If I throw it low, I can count on a skip. If I throw it high, it hyzers enough to stop.

My first thought was a Roc3 since it comes in G*, Champ, DX, and maybe more. I'm willing to consider others....

Alternatively - if there is a way to grab the Wasp and actually hold it, that would be cool :-)

Star Rancho Roc might work

I have both a G* Roc3 and Champion Roc3 and neither one of them has as much LST as Star Rancho or a standard KC Roc.

Could try a G* Shark3, heard they're supposed to be a little beefier than the Roc3

Could also try a FLX Drone, but that may be too beefy for what you want.

The Wasp has been run in several plastics over the years, including Pro D, Elite X, ESP, FLX Z, and FLX Z Glo. If you want a winter Wasp that isn't Z, there are options. I love my current Pro D. Super grippy and flies just like my Z.

You can try some Star and DX Rocs but they won't have the same flat top the Wasp does.

Z Wasp might be my favorite mid-range ever.

I haven't been able to find a FLX or ESP Wasp yet. If you know of any for sale, please let me know as I would certainly buy them.
