Review: I have several other wasps in different plastics and I especially like my crystal Z wasp. The wasp I have in esp plastic does not fly anything like the other wasps I have. It is very flippy and I can't get any distance at all on it without it falling on its side in an ugly roll! If your considering a wasp get a z and leave the esp alone!

Review: I got this disc thinking it would be more overstable than my ESP buzz and I would use this disc on the windier day's. I was wrong, it feels like a roc as far as the rim goes, and it does not like a lot of arm speed or snap. Not a reliable mid range at all. Cannot recommend if you have any sort of arm speed or snap. I'll stick to my reliable star gator for windy day, which has sweet wind fighting ability's. I'm sure the z plastic is more overstable, seeing as that is how the ESP line seems to be.

Review: I have been told that the discraft wasp is very similar to innova's roc. One of the great things about the wasp is that you can get it in many different plastics unlike the roc. I have 3 wasps in my bag; two 177g elite-z wasps, and a 177g ESP Wasp. One of my Z wasps is beat up pretty good and is less stable and another that is brand new that is slightly overstable. The one i have been using the most is my ESP Wasp. I prefer this disc more because of its great grip and the fact that it is very durable. I can use this disc for everything from laying up to 300 feet holes. To me it seems that the wasp is a more stable version of the buzzz. This makes it a better wind disc. If you have a great arm and like the control of a midrange for 300 drives or less the Wasp is a great choice.
