Truth vs. Mace; differences?

I've not been happy with my Roc filling my overstable mid slot; it just doesn't feel right in my hand and, when thrown flat, doesn't hit the line I wish it would. I had an Innova Shark but lost it earlier this summer (it had seasoned to really straight anyways), and so I'm looking for an overstable mid with a bit more fade than my Axis. I've also been wanting to try Dynamic Discs and Lat64 discs out for a little while now.

So right now, I'm looking at either the Truth or the Mace; the Truth would be in Lucid plastic, 178 grams, and the Mace a misprint Gold Line at 175-176 grams. I guess I'm really looking at how the flights compare, how flat/domey each feels, how deep the rim is etc? I throw RHBH with mids

If anyone can compare it to an Axis, Shark, Skeeter, or Roc that'd be awesome since I have experience throwing those discs. I don't mind buying both to try out, but if the feedback is more one way or the other for either disc then that's some money saved right there!

How does the Mace and Truth compare against each other?

Yes, that's my question, probably didn't state it clearly though, oops

They're nothing alike. If you want an overstable mid, the truth is not it. It's a fast mid like a Buzzz. A truth has more glide than a Buzzz's and is about as stable. Really straight with almost no fade, but breaks in to have some turn relatively fast.

Haven't thrown a mace but it seems like it's damn near a roc. Looks like it could handle torque better tho, whatever that's worth

If you find a good Roc, it should be more overstable than either the Truth or the Mace. The Vector may be worth a try if you like MVP.

I was concerned about the Vector being as overstable as the Roc. I think I don't quite understand what Overstable means though; I guess what I'm really looking for is something more OS than the Axis while still straighter than the Roc.

Overstable discs will fade more and turn less. For a right-handed player throwing backhand, overstable discs will go left more than other discs.

If you want something less overstable than a Roc, but more overstable than an Axis, I would suggest either beating up a Roc, buying a new Axis (if yours is beat up), or seeking an appropriate mold. I think the Truth may be what you're looking for. The Mace is slightly less overstable in comparison to the Roc, but those I know who have thrown both tend to prefer Rocs.

Ok, then Overstable is what I was thinking. I've had the Roc for a while and thrown it a decent amount, it is a KC Pro so maybe that has it season more slowly than I would imagine it would.

Mace is like a shorter less glidey Roc, and Truth is just straight straight straight. Get a verdict and thank me later...no joke... get a verdict...do it, do it, do it, do it..

That's interesting; would you compare a Mace to a Gator? That's a disc I've been thinking of for the future.

The Verdict has a 3.5 fade rating, as opposed to the 2 of the Mace and Truth and 3 of the Roc. How accurate are flight ratings in telling how the disc will fly then?

And I'm sorry if I come through as completely ignorant because, well, I kind of am in a lot of areas in buying and evaluating discs!
