Flat, heavy new run Wasp I picked up from a local vendor. Fantastic dayglow color and pretty stiff too. Somewhat translucent.

Wasp

Started going through a bag of old discs and found this sitting on top. Probably 10+ years old. Weighs in at ~175g (only scale I have weighs in ounces). Not warped in any way. Any interest? I can throw it in the field a bit if anyone is curious about the flight.

There was a max weight, pearly pink, flat wasp at GGGT today. New run, still felt great. I almost snagged it, but I figured I just don't need more wasps in my closet right now.

Oh who am I kidding, if it's still there next time I go, I'll buy it.

My local has a blue z wasp old flight numbers. Flat with swirls. I don’t throw wasps right now. Should I pick it up for the collection?

I tried a wasp late last year and it didn’t really do anything my champ roc3 doesn’t already do. Also I recently acquired several base plastic Rocs to try and start a cycle. .....and those 350g MX3 look tasty Af. Why should I start throwing them? Please convince me, I love buying new discs. Lol

Buy it because you might possibly throw Wasps some day. I have a small stack but I've waffled between the Wasp and Buzzz over the years.

Collection to throw one day or collector? If you think you can pick it up to flip, flip it now that there aren't a lot of Wasps for sale. Otherwise you'll likely have to sit on it for a while. It's pretty though. I threw the Buzzz for two years before throwing my first Wasp. That started a four year love affair.




Rocs are even better

Flat Z Wasps beat in to have more glide than Champ Roc3s.
Flat Wasps are more Is than Roc3s.
Z plastic feels better than Champ plastic.

My first mid was a champ Roc3; they are good discs but pale to a flat Wadp.
