I have zero bias with any company. The Judge is a good disc as well as the Warden. If you were to look at my bag, it would be mostly Innova, some Lat64, one maybe 2 DD discs. I don't get why people judge (no pun intended) other people for liking something else. Everyone is different.

I love the feel of DX, Star, Gold Line, Fuzion, Zero Medium and Classic Blend plastic. I will use a certain kind of plastic/mold depending on the weather for the most part.

Only on the weekends

They are similar, just as the Wizard is similar to the Big Bead or PA3, Clozer, or

My point is that without Innova, DG wouldn't be where we are today.

I agree with your last statement, but the molds are not similar.

Ok Casey, where is the punctuation? I have no idea how to read the above statement.

Sorry, that was a little low.

i thought there was white esps but i couldnt recall if it was tourney run or production
I agree with you, but if no one buys the overpriced testers, Discraft isn't going to even consider production runs. Discraft doesn't need Wasp money. They're going to make you work for it. Give a little now to get what you want down the line.

That said, $20 is stupid expensive for a disc that would more than likely spend several years in your bag...

However an ESP Wasp would not fly all that well as a more OS Wasp in ESP would turn it into a Drone kind of disc flight. However a X Wasp flies like a Z Wasp but with more glide so it does not do the stall drop when visibly to the eye loosing spin. Sad because I loved the old Elite X Wasp, Problem was mine was too light at 166 grams so it would not fight wind the way a Wasp is supposed to. The Z Wasp I have at 172 grams was too slick and would slip out of hand. I never like the ROC due to it's nose being more pointy and making the wing feel odd in hand due to the angle it was at as well as the slightly smaller rim also making the wing odd in hand.

Thanks to players like Nate Doss and former Discraft player liking Eric McCabe the having the Buzzz in the bag, the sales of that mold went though the roof so the idea to make other plastic for the Wasp after it came out first in the old Elite Z was dropped as Discraft focused on the Buzzz mold making the OS and US Buzzz as well.

maybe, but comfort level is subjective at best

back on topic - the judge is very popular in the midwest for obvious reasons, not so much in the great lakes region, from what I can tell

It is popular in Midwest or Upper Prairie states sure but not as much as one might think, I see people using the MVP/Axiom putter that is closest to a Wizard more and more due to the fact that MVP/Axiom is about the second or third closest company to Where I livein Pierre South Dakota that does not make gimmick discs like Quest AT. Back in the 2000's lots of people Used a Lighting disc or two due to the fact they were also a Plains state now not so much since the brand is OOP they think the discs when a mold sells out of discs on GGGT that mold will be gone forever. Now The Swedish Trilogy and the MVP trilogy are becoming the most popular. Fewer and fewer players use Discraft due to Dynamic Discs but a number in my area still use Innova molds and Millennium, well mostly the Hyzerbomb discs due to those discs being the only thing one can buy in my area for actual discs. The least popular mold that people use is in my area is the #2 Upshotor U-2 as I am the only one who uses the mold, though you see others using the Colt or the MVP/Axiom disc similar to the U-2 quite regularly. A few have started using the Bullfrog a similar flight to the Judge only due to the fact the disc is available right away to buy.
