Welcome to the HIVE! The 2010 Ace Race prototype has been green-lighted for release as Hornet. Ace Race competitors received ESP copies, but Hornet's retail debut will be player's first chance to throw it in Z plastic! Aggressive into the wind, Hornet's place in the hive is between Wasp and Drone. Not crazy overstable, but no sissy either. You'll be surprised by the amount of glide Hornet generates. Also check out the Discraft 150 Class Elite Z Hornet for a lighter version of the same disc.
This was one of those experimental pick-ups I made when at my local disc golf shop, and man am I glad I snagged it. This disc is rated by Discraft at a 2.0, but doesn't fly anywhere near that. It handles the wind beautifully and can be made to reach out a fair distance before fading in. My only negative experience with this disc was when I went for a slide-up approach in 40+ mile per hour headwinds and had the ground effect coupled with the increased lift from the headwind carry me out of bounds. Overall, this is a fine disc to fill that overstable midrange niche in your bag! (Posted on 2/8/12)
when your buzzz just seems to be going too staright on those short hyzer holes then its time to get the hornet out!! give it a nice controlled drive and watch it fade towards the basket, also great in windy conditions (Posted on 1/18/12)
The Hornet is the newest Ace Race disc from Discraft. This is a useful headwind mid range disc because of the overstability of this disc. I have never favored overstable drivers so other players may feel a bit differently than me. My problem with this disc was that it would either hyzer really bad or flip over and do an "S" curve type of flight pattern when all I wanted was a straight throw with a hyzer at the end but I could never get it to do that so I think I'll stick with my Z Buzzz for this shot.
