The Obex

Other than Big John, nobody had dedicated a thread to this disc.

The flight looks similar to a Wasp.

Tell me more

You pretty well said it. It's a lot like a wasp. Holds a nice line with a good fade at the end.

Definitely type 2 overstable, a good straight flight with a reliable, hard fade at the end. It's also sneaky long.

Haha yep. A Saint, monster, and gator and a few other random discs find their way in and out, but Vibram forms the core of my bag.

I like my Wasp better. I had high hopes for the Obex but i just didn't do what I wanted it to. I gave mine to a friend who has had great success with it so it least it has a good home.

I use my Obex a lot now. It's great for hyzer approaches and 300' or less drives. Not extremely overstable. I don't prefer it much in a headwind. That will be what the Mobex is for. But I find it to be predictable in most other situations for consistent hyzer flip to straight to fade flights.

Dan, I've been thinking of getting one to replace my Wasp. How do they compare?
