rock3 is way closer to the wasp than the rock

Fantastic news, thank you. I've heard the Roc3s get nowhere close to the stability of the Wasp, but if the feel is identical they can be the bottom half of my cycle. Guess I'll try it out.

Anyone have any experience with Wasp vs MD3? I can't really find a flatter Wasp anywhere (waiting for Hammes & ESP) and was curious about the MD3.

The MD3s i have is not really that OS. . A MD4 is closer in flight to a WASP but totally different feel

But it might be something "wrong" with my stack of Glow MD3s. . they should be quite stable but mine flies more like a Buzzz

Now that I already replaced it with a new Z (that is max weight and beef), I'm going to ask the question that I'm sure I know the answer to already.

Is there a good way to cycle these? I love the feel and flight of mine, but the one I just got back overlaps my most OS Buzzz (it's actually a tick less stable than the Buzzz).

Should I just get my hands on some flat Rocs? I've never thrown them, but I don't want to get into an expensive or impossible cycle. I'm just not a huge fan of the naturally flippy mids (Meteor, Comet, Buzzz SS, etc.)

I will say that I absolutely love the two Wasps that I have and I wish I had one for every Mid shot.
For a long time I threw 2or3 z wasps and 1 flat kc roc. Works very well imo. I have a 165-170 z wasp that broke into a good slow turnover mid for the whole flight. But that takes some serious time. Still throwing the same flat kc roc from 2014, it really has held up well for me.

The roc3s that I've thrown have less HSS than pretty much every Wasp I've ever thrown. The feel is similar though.

Still waiting on a production release of JB Wasps.

Anyone know if the Hammes Wasps are flat?

I wouldn't mind them in X, but I prefer JB for the added grip and slightly faster wear pattern (if I remember my old X wasps correctly). At this point, I'd take just about anything that isn't premium plastic.

I liked JB for putting putters, but I was not impressed with it in the Zone. JB tends to clover, I am not for sure that the wing would stay in line for the Wasp; I know my JB Zone did not keep it's wing shape.
