well said.

Joe, not sure that I would roll it, but I think in testing a disc out it's a good idea to test it in every way possible. Backhand, Forehand, spike, anny, thumber, tomahawk, and roller. In DG you never know what shot you're going to need, so why not master the disc?

When thrown straight upright, it rolled very straight. When throw in w/ a cut angle, it did not stand up like a domey driver would. Might come in handy w/ the right hole and tree cover.

Besides, the Hornet is so beefy it seemed like a 1 trick pony. While getting the dogs some exercise I stumbled across this discovery.

Hornet is a new addition to the bag. After seeing BC, Tanner and MDR throw them a lot I figured it was worth a shot. Got rid of the Z Drone and this seems to be a better fit. Similar stability to the Z Drone but is lower profile and carries a little better. I'm happy with my mid ranges now. FLX Drone, Z Hornet and 4 Buzzz's(1 SS).

Hornet

I have grown to like the Hornet as well. It took a while to get used to when I first got it. Didn't give up on it and now I use it a lot. It didn't get all squirly on me at GBO when I used it on headwind upshots. Just a baby flat toss into the heavy wind and it held a flat straight line up to 150'.

Normal conditions I can get it out there between '270 and '300. Its staying in the bag.

It's definitely a nice disc. I keep the drone, hornet, buzzz SS in the bag at all times. The aggregate seems to handle 95% of shots within 300'~
