This is how I found the Wasp. My local PIAS had a flat max Z that looked to be 7/10 visually, but 9/10 flight. Hello "1" Roc, with Comets handling "4" and "5" Roc duties. KC Pro Rocs handled "2" and DX handled "3" slots.

We do have one hope still... Nate daBoss. There have been rumors out there that since the brewery is passed the start up faze, him and Val might make some appearances on the circuit next year... Nate's had that green Wasp in his bag for as long as I can remember, and now that Paul has the Buzzz sig disc...

Nate bring back Ti Wasps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did not know if you meant they had never made a Ti Wasp.

This was a sweet disc....sadly made in awful colors. Autumn Maple Leaf Red, Michigan Summer Grass Green.....
Right I was aware of these - I'd like to see them in new Ti or ESP. Or ZFlx??

I don't think they make production ZFLX anymore.

There are new ESPs out there, I have a couple of ESP Swirl Glow from 2018 Ledgestone I believe but they are really hard to find now.

Honestly never thrown a Ti Wasp - they were most popular when I wasn't really playing much. Don't know how much value they'd give Discraft over production Z

Can’t believe they didn’t make more of the zflx wasps. I scooped up every one I could find the past eight or so years. Had 10 at one point but down to 7 now.

Great disc for wooded and hilly courses. She sticks to the ground if not into the chains. Very forgiving on errant tree hits as well

Got 2 downhill aces on one of them. Definitely would have bought the pinks from the factory store special stash back then at $19.99 if I didn’t already have all the others.

Down to 3 of the ti wasps left. Kept 2 color shifts and an orange. Can’t find the raspberry one I had. Haven’t thrown them in years due to all the other wasps trying to bump out these buzzz’z

Still rock at least 1-2 old pink or yellow pearly z wasp in each bag. Hope the newer ones are good for ya.

Ya know, I will be the first to admit that a regular ol' Z Wasp is a damn good disc. I might feel a little silly trying to bag something to cover a "less stable Wasp" slot when I have a stack of Buzzzes.

I always bagged a few z wasps and a broken in flat top kc roc for the flippy z wasp flight. Works well. I got a z wasp that is getting flippy but it took years and doesnt hold a turnover as well. It still wants to flex.

Adam Hammes WASP signature disc - hopefully will revive this mould and get some more options out there. I still REALLY like the wasp but I don't see enough plastic/color options that I would like so I have been using other slightly OS mids - and I like them too, but having more Wasps isn't a bad thing. I still surprised McBeth didn't have this as a disc.

That's awesome, Swirly ESP Wasps in our future?? _

Also Hammes' putting was absolutely off the chain for the Hall of Fame Classic - Heimborg just barely clutched it out.

Here's to an awesome 2020
