In Early 2020 the Asian Giant Hornet, Northern Giant Hornet, or Japanese Giant Hornets were first sighted on the Left Coast of North America. At a size of upto 2″ long (5x Larger than a Honey Bee), Carrying Extra, and more potent venom they are somewhat off putting to say the least. After a video went viral of a Murder Hornet Killing a Mouse, It quickly became of a Meme of the Terrifying Kind, Cementing it the name in the public consciousness.
The Murder Hornet has nearly Identical Balance to the Meganeura but is just a touch heavier, and is offers a four sided Taper, and a Bug Strong Square Head (paying Homage to Ace’s Heritage).
The Square Stock, and wide flats offer a lot of contact, and give a great feeling of control. While the long Tapered body guarantees smooth releases in a variety of No-Spin Techniques. In addition to this the Hornet Aggressively Punches it’s Signature Square holes of Sadness into it target.
It performs well in Wave Style Throws as well as Traditional Shuriken Slide. Ace has developed a Modern Hybrid throw that works exceptionally well these modern Shuriken Designs. Follow The Delta 2 Alpha Youtube Channel for Future Videos
