Hornet

Anyone gotten it yet? I donated mine and never tried throwing it. Sounds like it's in between Wasp and Drone. If I remember correctly it had a lower profile.

I have the Ace Race Hornet, and I felt it was less stable than the buzzz. It is decent, but nothing special IMO.

Kurt, would you say it's more overstable than a new Z buzz?

Actually that is what I was hoping the disc would fly like. Was looking for a low profile disc that you could throw straight. The buzz for me requires to much power to throw it straight.

Its supposed to be more stable than a Wasp. Faster as well if I remember correctly.

If you want something less stable than the Buzzz, there in a production Buzzz SS coming out sometime soon.

It was a low profile. It was definitely more stable then a buzzz. It was an interesting disc. Very stable, but seemed to almost get more stable as I threw it harder.

I didn't seem to have alot of "float". It was more of a power disc.

It felt alot like the old z-storms, but a stable version. Interesting disc, but probably won't take a spot in my bag at all.

Do you mean glide? Sounds like a stable Squall to me.

You can call it glide if you like. I prefer the word float :)
Drivers glide, midranges float :)

I picked the ace race disc up today and it looks and feels just like the Storm. I compared both and can't tell the difference.
