Default Woops

I meant the obex is slightly less stable then the wasp. Not obex vs obex lol.
At first I thought it could take the spot of my wasp but I feel the need for both especially when there is some decent wind. I've thought about getting a hornet or drone but im waiting for a mobex!

The Obex to is really reliable for those 200-250 ft hyzer upshots. They don't flip over, feel like a roc, and have a extended fade at the end. I've never thrown a wasp, but I'd say they are more stable than a buzz or a roc. I find them to be really consistent on those must have upshots.

I won 3 of them at World's this year and one has stayed in my bag since. Still love my buzz and 2 KC roc's though...

An Ibex is like a Roc with some good wear on it. An Obex is like a brand new, heavy Roc. I honestly think the Roc has more glide than either, and I can throw my Ibex a little farther than I can throw my Obex, but I'm not sure if this is because the Ibex glides better or if I can't get enough speed on the Obex to see its full potential. They're all great discs, in my opinion. My favorite shot with an Obex is teeing off on a downhill hole under 300', that is open on the right side -- I know at least two holes near me that fit this description nicely. Backhand it flat out to the right, and it will hold a nice straight line until it runs out of HSS steam; when the LSS takes over, you get a solid, reliable fade back to the target.

I recently got one of the firm ones, closest thing to a good rancho KC Roc I've played with since the plastic has changed a bit and I'm not going to pay for a marked up Roc3, on the Inbound scale for low speed fade the Obex was 56, the Roc 57, and the Wasp a 60, all three had perfect zero turn.

I think this is a pretty good point but I still need something that will definitely crack left even when I throw it pretty fast in a headwind. The VP is an awesome and reliable approach disc, no doubt, but I need something a little faster and even more overstable sometimes with more glide. MOBEX.

I haven't noticed any difference. The firm x link will beat in though.

So regular x link won't beat in? I want a disc to hold its characteristics longer. Tree hits are an everyday thing here.

Medium will eventually beat in, but much, much slower than premium plastic (champion, z, etc.). Medium Xlink is definitely more durable than any plastic on the market. Firm beats in at about the same rate as star/flx plastic. At least in my experience.
