Just sounds like flashing on the parting line. It happens sometimes. I don't think I have any that have been like that.

I noticed this on my most recent factory dyed Z Wasp - I don't know if that's where the mold parts meet, or if it's just part of the mold. It's on the part of the wing that would get worn smooth the quickest, but I hit it with a sanding block then rubbed it on carpet because I am impatient.

When you throw a Wasp, you really care about.

Of course, neither are full production runs yet, but they are out there.
Well I got some Jawbraker Magnets that are slightly soft then as temps over 90-95 F turn the Discs into sticky noodles, got them in mid-late 2017 and now they are very worn in. Maybe for smaller run of The Wasp midrange they used the stiffer Jawbreaker for most of them. I wish they made at least the Jawbreaker Wasps in production because if Discraft did then I might try a sort of Cycle with the plastic using the discs until they became US. Also I know a midrange would be less likely to be hitting something like the Chains or basket with a putter, reason the Jawbreaker is breaking in so quick. I just do not want a cycle that could disappear on me with such a smaller run of disc.

Long time Roc cycler here. New to the wasp. A Z wasp is a cheap, bookend roc.

It's glidey. It's overstable. It goes far. How it do dat?

Im a Converted Roc thrower, and now a Wasp thrower. I find the flat Z Wasps are money. The plastic wears slower and holds the sweet spots longer, and can handle more torque. Shape feels better in the hand to me as well.

Have you guys tried forehanding these things?? Something about the flat top combined with the considerable depth and bead size just... work? Perfect stability, perfect amount of glide for midrange FH.

Man it's really hard to make conclusions about what works/doesn't work for me - I think I like a certain feel/type of disc one month, try something silly on a lark and it clicks...
