This Wasp was hot off the press, normally I am picking up Z plastic off the shelf. Does Z plastic have an extended period of off-gassing?
Depends on the run, the one I have from 2008 is still as stiff as a KC ROC but it got slicker in the plastic when I let it sit in a hot car 1 hour method only getting to the more modern KC ROC in terms of flex so I did not want to continue fearing I might get eventually a softer but the disc is so slick it is as bad or worse then Jolly launcher style Champion plastic when new. It is still this way today and more slick then back after the hot car method.

I accidently found out that if you let beat to crap rpro rhyno rub up against other discs in your putter pocket, it will make those discs tackier...

Seriously though, I had both a cryz and esp/flx challengers get very tacky after spending time in that pocket with that rhyno.

I can’t remember how many I have but haven’t really thrown them. Too many other wasps in the mix

Super super stiff plastic. I thought it would be pretty durable but it chunked pretty bad hitting a rock. Flew fine up to that point, didn't fade as hard as a fresh z but still high speed stable. (For reference I throw wasps in shots between 275-325 ish)

I prefer regular jawbreaker. Not much difference in durability and better grip.
Unfortunately for me, they are harder to find. I like to pair it up with z or flat esp swirl glow.
