Anyone throwing the 2015 Ledgestone ESP Wasps? Gotta be the beefiest Wasp I've come across. Flies nothing like the old ESP wasp I picked up used. Kicked my Z Wasp and Hornet both out of the bag.

Unfortunately I'm afraid they will be next to impossible to find going forward.

Just ordered two Jawbreaker wasps. Can't wait to try them out.


I have 3 of the 2015 ESP wasps and can confirm that they are quite over stable.

My two Jawbreaker Wasps (177+ white and purple) came in the mail yesterday and I had a chance you throw them for 30-40 minutes today on two holes on my home course alongside two 7/10 Z Wasps . Slight breeze with gusts up to 15-20mph. The way these holes lined up I had a chance to throw in headwind and tail wind gusts.

First hole is 260' with OB woods on the left and OB road on the right, 75' wide fairway, basket sitting far right maybe 20' from the road, tailwind gusts. The left side has branches hanging over the fairway so being LHBH you need to either throw straight at the basket or do a real slight flex shot to get past the branches but still fade at the basket.

At first I assumed these would fly like a flat top DX roc so I threw them higher with more finesse than power and they flew like complete turds. Next I decided to try to throw them on the lower flex line with a little more power like I do my Z Wasps and buzzz's. I figured that they would struggle to fight back and leave me 20' left like by Ti Buzzz but they fought back beautifully like my Z Wasps and left me much closer to the basket.

Next hole is 270' island hole completely surrounded by OB road, 80' wide, four large pines in the center, headwind gusts. This hole has a small tunnel that you can hit between the pines but with a super low ceiling (8-9'), or the option to take the outside hyzer lines over the OB road. I opted for the hyzer line outside of the road and added some extra hyzer on the disc expecting a little flip up in the headwind. Both shots went flying right into the pine branches in the center, zero flip up in the headwind. Said screw it on the next two throws and pumped them out on a wider line with a less hyzer, my typical Z wasp line, and they didn't flinch in the headwind with a beautiful flight right near the basket. I was surprised with this result so I threw them on the headwind hyzer line a bunch of times and the only time they got even a little squirrely was the one time I threw a little nose up into the headwind, flipped up to flat but still faded in bounds but much shorter.

Next test was not on a golf hole but gave them a few rips to see how they'd hold an anhyzer line and they fought out every time.

I was expecting much more glide from a base plastic disc but these things seemed to be identical to my Z wasps in almost every single way. I'm really interested to see how these beat in over time and am wondering if they'll loose LSS first and turn into a Buzzz or HSS first and turn into some crazy line shaping disc. Either way I'm really excited for these but I have a feeling Discraft will screw up this opportunity and keep these a LE release.

TLDR: It's a Z Wasp in base plastic.

I have a Wasp I used for a year or so, 167-168 grams limited edition Elite X. It has a tournament I did not participate in but won at another tournament put on by same now dead club. I also have from 2008 South Dakota State Disc Golf tournament in Pierre a Elite Z 172 gram disc I got for playing in the tournament, they used all Discraft and then got mostly Elite Z Wasps for that tournament.
