Carry 2 in the bag atm. 1 has been seeing the bulk of duties for about 2 months now. It will flip to flat and drift a little with a very small fade at the end. Flies very similar to a new domey Z Comet.

The other one still has been in the bag a month and flies like a new Champ Roc3.

I've been pleasantly surprised with their durability.

Really? Do they have a dome to them or something? The ones I have are all board flat, and the one that I have been bagging for a few months now has some wear, but I can pump it out to 300-320' without much left to right movement at all on a pretty flat release. Definitely won't hyzer flip, and nothing like any comet I've ever thrown

I will agree that they have been surprisingly durable. I really smacked a tree hard last night about 75' off the tee - it warped a little but I bent it back right away and the flight basically hadn't changed.

Nope, all of my CT's have been board flat. The new one I'm tossing will fly similar to what you're describing with very little lateral drift before a gentle finish. But the 2 month old CT will definitely stand up and drift with little to no fade. It's not a turn and burn kind of drift but on a full power shot (350'-ish), it finishes about 20' right of the line it started. The domey Z Comets are the most stable run of Comets which is why I compared them, it has significantly less turn than my flat top Z.

That's just crazy to me, with my experience with the disc. My CTs are basically just like my jew JBs still, and they definitely have 0 high speed turn. Then again if you're throwing them 50' farther than me maybe that's where the difference is seen.

I'm very familiar with all types of comets, and wouldn't put any of them, even MJ glow esp, in the category of any of my wasps.

Sounds like it's time to list some. What are old Zs and Tis going for nowadays?

I really wonder if they plan on holding off and "re-tooling" it as the mid-range in the McBeth line...

Discraft Could be just change the label on the Wasp, not the mold just the label. This would be for a Jawbreaker Tuff Wasp or a Wasp full production run in Jawbreaker with his Signature for a line just so people can have the Exact molds that Paul McBeth has and Paul can get more of the Jawbreaker Wasp in the weights he wants. This would be similar to what Discraft did for the Ti Zone with the McBeast signature and logo on the disc. Anyhow Paul seems to like the Buzz for most midrange shots.
