I'm going to give it a shot. I like low profile discs and someone told me it's like a "diet Drone." Sick of trying to find good and stable Wasps.

I thought it looked kind of like a storm.

The best wasp's ever made were the ghost stamped FR's.

Also...AO...I have a 174g PC Tracker that I might be looking to unload.

Threw the Hornet the other day. Def. has some good stability to it but it's not overwhelming. Pretty much on spot between a Drone and Wasp/Stable Buzzz.

I was thinking about picking one of these up, because my D Wasp can't handle much of a headwind anymore. Would you say that the Hornet has some good glide, being as stable as it is?

flys just like a long zone to me. Not near the float of a wasp since its shallow, but its a smooth throw for sure. I can see this disc being amazing for head winds, in other words will own at geneseo.

In my bag for sure, but prob still going to use wasp for longer straighter shots. This might change depending if they start making hornets in d plastic.

I love how you worded this as to not put yourself out there as the one who will own geneseo, just that one better than yourself could do well with this disc...

I know for a fact that clue could shoot double digits at geneseo with a pro rhyno.

I'm trying to goad Lenny into playing me for money. In that howling wind last year I shot 6 down with 51/57 shots being a Rhyno. Only 6 others.
