Stable midrange between an Envy and a Teebird

I'm looking for a stable midrange that has incredible high speed stability and a dependable glidey fade rather than a dumpy one. I have been bagging Roc3's for this shot, but its not nearly as high speed stable as I'd like and it barely fades, more like 1 in fade rather than the billed 3. Perhaps I got a dud, I don't know. What are your suggestions? I have no brand loyalty, any brand is fine, except for the super small ones that my importer doesn't carry (they carry a lot of brand, just not the tiny boutique ones like RDG or whatever)

I use a Discraft Wasp as my stable midrange. I love the predictable fade back to the basket. It is my go to disc for when I want my upshot to fade left. Also works pretty well for S shots.

Perhaps a Roc instead of a Roc3? You might also try a Cro or Shark3, perhaps a King Cobra.

Side note: I do think your Roc3 might be an aberration or else very beat in. My various Roc3s are very straight with dependable fade.

Dropped my Roc3s for Verdicts when I want high speed stable and a solid fade at the end and couldn't be happier. Also feels great in the hand.

With the Envy being so fast (it flies far enough that it could be considered a super slow mid), you will more than likely need something on the faster end of the mid spectrum to complement it.

Millennium Q-Sentinel or Discraft Hornet would be my suggestion. Of course these will infringe on your TeeBirds since they're so slow for being a driver.
