all 3 were very similar in flight and seasoned but not thrashed.its a very neutral spot in the bag that i need and rely on a lot. hyzerflip to flat,very little fade or thrown flat,it would drift right but still fade out if given enough height. it was my go to mid slot that i use a lot in the woods out here.

after cracking both wasps, i sold them off because i just dont have the time to season one in. i went back to buzzzs and found this one that was seasoned but ultimately met the same demise.

so i need suggestions! i still have buzzzs but not seasoned and if i have to beat some in,i just may. im considering the gobi,a seasoned fossil gila(which i bag for the more stable spots) impact, mako3 ,element or even a buzzz ss

the gobi has gained my interest based on the vids ive seen and the way risley talks it up. it doesnt seem to get much love here but i have a friend who has one so i may give it a try anyway.

im just looking for other options. TIA
Very similar Buzzz like disc but more neutral flight by a little bit is the Champion Shark 3, a good disc but and but only comes in Champion now as the other plastics were PIA to run right I am guessing, only guessing.

i do have a black zombie crossbow but its too understable and doesnt feel good to me. the wasp was my bread and butter and the bead definitely kept it in that sweet spot for a long time but i guess i will have to either spend the time seasoning a prophecy/gila/buzzz or try something new and replace it as it becomes too understable.
Comet sounds like another choice that is good for rocky courses lots of plastic choice, my local courses have some hazards like on one of the courses big electrical boxes on 2 different holes can come into play. Then on one hole a drainage ditch can really chew discs not in durable premium plastics.

Same exact flight raitings but on speer faster then Comet is the Buzzz SS and it is probably the disc you were looking for. I say get a few of these use them with the Buzzz untill the Buzzz is more beat to the flight path you want.

I have:

ESP Meteor, Z Meteor, Z Buzzz SS, Zflx Buzzz, Ti Buzzz and Z Wasp in my bag.. . my goal is to only have Buzzz and Wasp as they break in

My Zflx is starting to beat in so it΄s flight is close to my new Z Buzzz SS

But a Z Buzzz SS in +172g should be perfect for you

I bag a Warrant in this slot. Flips to flat, drifts right, barely fades unless given height. (Rhyme unintentional.)

Was thinking if you like the diamond plastic and need understable out of the box karma, warrior could work

I was going to say that you don't sound like Casey 1988 until you also suggest the Shark3. Ha ha. And he already did, above.

There are very few things you can count on in life; death, taxes, and Casey's Impacts and Shark3s.
