What is different about these? Anything significant? What's your preference?

Not sure, but I think I remember reading that the Yeti's bounce out more.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

Yetis are the big bead Aviar mold, the P&As are beadless (or small bead in some older runs)

the yetis have a little less glide as well because of the concave top.

also,the newer blends dont bounce as much as the older first production run.
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

Yetis have a smaller bead than KCs and BBs and being thinner Yetis are faster. The net result for me is a few feet of extra distance vs the KC.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

It should be the same size since it's the same mold, but they use a different plastic blend so who knows, might end up being a bit smaller.

I dunno about the mold for sure that is the rumor i've heard but in an actual Yeti the bead is way smaller than in a KC. The flight plate starts out sunken in in a Yeti AKA the long term KC throwers will beat their KC to that shape eventually and for some it is the preferred shape for easier grip and less fade -better for a straighter putt.

Weird mine doesn't. I'm glad the Yeti bead on mine and at the store i bought them is smaller for better performance. But if i were committed to them replacing them would be a problem. I almost committed to them but it ain't durable enough on rocky courses. And despite being thinner than other KC molds it is still a bit iffy on occasion with cleanliness of releases.
