Default Looking for disc between Verdict and M4

I am not getting along with the Z buzzz anymore. Not throwing it clean and it Hyzers more than I would like. I love the M4 and throw it whenever possible. Only problem is it drifts right a bit when thrown flat and hard. I need a disc I can throw hard and flat that has zero turn and a soft fade. So maybe a 0 turn and 1 to 1.5 fade. It doesn't have to fight a headwind too much. The verdict is straight in a headwind. What are the best options?

I am a big proponent of the Vroc here. Before that I used truths. The reason I switched was because I wanted the gap between my mids and gazelles to be a bit bigger. The truth will feel pretty close to your verdict. It has been awhile since I have had an m4 in hand so can't give any comparisons to feel there. I prefer the Vroc in dx, but if you like the premium feel the MF vrocs are my favorite and have less dome than the G*.

If you like longer mids I would give a serious look into the Andro C when it comes out and the Kaxe Z. The C will have a bit more fade than 1 when new, but that is a bit offset by some turn initially. That is if they fly like the Andro + as intended. The kaze Z is another option that may have a bit more fade initially than you are looking for, but less than your verdict. The k2 plastic is amazing as well.

Legacy Gauge, Claymore, Tangent, Aurora MS, Atlas, Mako... those will all be fairly straight at distances below 280 with a small amount of fade.

I'd say Claymore, or even the Evidence, if you want same feel and speed of the Buzzz.

The Discmania MD is a good choice too.

Ti Buzzz / Z Buzzz. That's my suggestion. I know its such a common disc, but for a guy who tried a ton of midranges over the last 5 years, I came back to the buzzz....and did NOT regret it.

BUT if you want something different. I'd say Compass by Lat64

Axis, I haven't thrown one much but it fits this very well if you don't want a Buzzz. Ive seen I thrown a lot though and it performs. I've only thrown recycled Claymores of the other suggestions, but they definitely drift right. Also maybe champ Mako3

I like this suggestion. If the Z Buzzz is hyzering too much for you, a Mako3 might be just what you're looking for.

A lot of good ideas have been stated above. Of them, IMHO the VRoc would be good. Possibly even better would be the Star VCobra, which I bag and like very much for straight throws.

The Axis is a very straight disc, if you like MVP and the overmold.

On the flip side, I tried a Discmania MD and did not like it at all.

There are probably 100 molds between these discs. Good luck.

The claymore, compass and mako3 all intrigue me. I used to throw a mako and found it similar to the M4. Is the claymore similar to the M4? It seems as though it might be. Maybe I will try the compass or vroc.
