Could NEVER take the wasp out of my bag. Amazing when you get it new and gets even better with time.

I replaced my Wasps with a Hornet. Same bead and rim, but smaller diameter and seemingly a little more overstable with good carry.

If he is worried about too much glide, then he doesn't need to move from the Wasp to a Hornet. I switched from a Hornet to a Wasp for this reason. Less glide and more control.

I would be ok carrying a Wasp and a Hornet. I tried to go minimalist but with mids I will carry more. I think that if I'm holding a mid, I need to get down in 2. I felt a Drone last league play. That Drone feel is not for me along with the Comet.

Ya.... different rims.... thats why i switched over to the hornet last year cuz i dont like beads much and i could do the same things with a fresh z buzzz as i could a wasp.... too much overlap between the two and the hornet offers more stability and great glide.... the wasp is a great disc though! Throw a buzz in R/L winds a little flat even and the wind should offer the fade you need. R/L wind generally means i will throw a similar line with something less stable than my normal option.

I'm having a hard time finding that balance between minimalism and "I want to throw everything because there are so many great discs." I've been floating between 9-11 molds over that past year.
