What mid will fill my gaps if any

Im going to skip the giant template. But basically I have been a rec player for the last two years. I am not great, but I am def. competitive with my friends. Here is my current Mid-Range Lineup:

Max Weight Buzzz - Z Plastic - Beat in nicely, was the first disc I ever bought - 220/260

150 Class Buzzz - Pro D - 8/10 - Use when I cant get a big run up and just need a little extra glide, or when it is rainy

173g Comet - Elite X - Bought to fix OAT, Keep it in the bag in case I need a quick fix on the course


My question is, are there any holes in this line up? Is there really a need for an OS mid or can the buzzz hold the lines I need it to hold? And if I should get an OS mid which one? There seems to be many options, I am considering possibly adding an OBEX to this lineup but would there be a better option (ie Wasp, Hornet, Drone, ROC, Shark, etc...) Thank you for your reply

I only use 2 mids

Warship and Fuse

the Warship does a lot of lines...as would your Buzzz

Fuse sort of equals the Comet...althoug you might want to consider a Z instead of the X

OS mid?
If it is that windy that I can't use my Warship with any decent hyzer then I am using an EXP1 or XXX anyway

on top of that I use the Zone...technically a putter but is in the shorter midrange category and OS at the end of its flight

I had toyed with the Hornet but decided it wasn't necessary

you will get a range of opinions

I use Hornet/Buzzz/Fuse myself

Hornet for windy conditions and all shots that MUST FINISH LEFT

Buzzz is my all around midrange.

Fuse is a killer disc. I could probably get by with this and the Hornet. Soft hyzers, laser straight, anhyzer shots. This disc does everything.

Wasp's are nice to pair w/ the Buzzz when you need something for windy days or shots that fade. I carry a Z Breeze, two Z Buzzz's, a Z Wasp, and a Star Gator. Covers every shot I need, with a bit of overlap.

You could pick up a heavy flat wasp or drone for overstable needs. I'm not a fan of hornets but it could easily fit in this slot. Zone is a little shorter but it's amazing. It's extremely reliable.

If I throw a Gator, would having a Zone as well be too much over-lap? I ask because I'm confronted with a situation regularly at my home course. Hole #1 is about 222', slightly downhill over a creek. There is almost always a head wind. If there's not I throw my Rhynos. If there is I usually huck a Gator, but often times it goes further than I want. I've heard the Zone v Gator comparison before, but is the Zone shorter than a Gator?

You could get an OS mid, an OS putter, power down a fairway, or get an OS utility disc like a Firebird, XXX or Predator. Whatever way you'd like to go. Then you'd have something for head winds and OS duties. You have choices.
