Good question. Mine is too gross to bother throwing. Let us know because the one i have wont be released to the wild.

They're not board flat for sure but the slight dome is not a big deal imo. Ymmv. I can see not wanting to pay premium prices though if you're really hung up about the shape

We have releases of ESP and Swirly Z to look forward to this year. This is an exciting time to be a Wasp thrower.
I knew about the ESP tour series, but they're running them in Swirly Z too?!

From my understanding is:

You want your mids to be flat (ie Buzzz, Wasp, Roc) because they are going to hold that straight line more without deviation because of less air getting underneath the disc. Having mild to a lot of dome lets the air get more under the disc which makes your disc go awry. Every mid I've owned has been flat and I have owned a domey-er buzzz and it just didn't hold the intended straight line like my flat top ones.

Not really. Parting line height is mostly what channels the air over or under. A disc can have both a high PLH and be domey. Dome can (read usually, but not always) increase the glide, which is wonderful on the Comet but not so good on the Wasp

A domey Wasp becomes more Roc-ish... and if I wanted a Roc, I would buy a Roc. Having said that, I did tell a friend, whom is a Roc thrower, about these as he has been looking for a Roc in premimum plastic.

dome /= glide

i havent thrown a domey wasp in about 10 years but it was less stable and really reminiscent of a rock rather than a true wasp flight

Got a chance to throw the big z wasp today. Compared to my z it's pretty much identical. Big z might be a tick more os but I think that's due to it being new.

The pictures look nice but I am disappointed the tour series wasps are z. Was really looking forward to some esp wasps.
