My OS mids are one of my most lost discs, along with 9-13 speed US stuff. I've had it for about a year now, and have almost lost it 3 times. I'm hoping to snag a backup before I need one, and I'm playing an out of state tourney on Saturday, on courses I've only played once before each, with both having changed recently, and one course was from a shorter tee.

Agreed. Getting one or two is probably a good idea, especially if you don't know if you'd be able to get a replacement when you do lose a disc. Just don't go overboard like (I admit) I've done and get more backups than you can use in a lifetime...

Is 6 too many for backups on an OOP mold especially if the disc comes in Z?
I get older ESP made right before the swirly was not durable unlike the 2000's ESP lasting a really long time but Z from that era of bad ESP right before Swirly ESP came out is just like most Z and one of the most durable plastics for a disc golf disc in the world.

Taking you seriously: one has to decide when a disc goes OOP whether to stock up or not. When the Hornet went OOP, I stocked up and now have 4, which should last me the rest of my DG playing life. However, when DD announced the Patrol was going OOP, I chose to not get any more.

Wasp lovers will have to decide if they'll be able to get more later, or if they should stock up now... and also ask how many is enough, and how many is too much.

I knew someone would say that. You're right, of course.

ace #8 today with my red z wasp

downhill about 260-275 dogleg left heavily wooded and few random trees in the middle of the fairway and the route is heavily wooded by trees

i never thought i would hit this hole i about turned around cuz it seemed like the hang time was too long but then i heard a smash and ran down and saw it sittin in the basket

i only chained out on this basket once and otherwise its not uncommon to take 4-7s on this hole if you go off fairway or hit an early tree

super happy

Guess I'm gonna waffle back to the Wasp again. Felt good enough throwing it in the field that I bagged it for a mini this evening and left the Buzzz in my truck. Only three it 3 times but it did what I wanted, wind was steady at about 15 mph.

Threw some pretty easy FH 275ish in the field with some tailwind. Yeah, I liked it.
