The Wasp is a slightly overstable midrange disc that borders on being a driver. It's a pretty chunky disc and feels solid in your hand. The flight is dead straight initially then it has a significant overstable fade at the end of the flight. It responds well to hard or soft throws, forehand or backhand and is even pretty handy in moderate wind. I personally feel that this might be the best midrange disc on the market (and no I don't work for Discraft). I have used Rocs in the past and although I don't use them now, I do acknowledge they are great discs but I have never found them to be as good as this. In comparison with a Roc, the Wasp is longer flying, less susceptible to turnover but more with a more overstable glide for me. This disc flies very straight at speed - I was introduced to the Wasp by a friend of mine (having heard quite a bit of hype about it on the net) - his was the most battered looking piece of plastic I've seen for some time! . He has a very powerful throw (huge torque) that will turn most discs into rollers but this old battered Wasp still flew very straight. I also really like the feel they provide which allows you to weight shots very easily. However, on the bad side (if you can call this a failure!), if you're someone who buys discs and uses them in various stages of wear from overstable through to roller, you'd best be patient... it may take a very long time!
