Good Headwind Mid?

I am currently turning over my max weight Buzzz into a headwind. Would a Buzzz OS or Roc or Roc3 work thrown into a headwind for straight shots? I don't want something that will turn over but don't want something that will go as far as a Firebird.

DD Verdict. Not meathook overstable, but very workable and solid into a headwind. As far as Rocs go you would need to hand pick a very domey roc3 or get your hands on a USDGC champ rancho. I don't know much about OS discraft mids other then they have a bunch that people like

The DD Verdict excels at this shot. It feels similar to a Buzzz to me too, so you don't have as much of a learning curve on it. The Drone eats headwinds alive and is almost too stable if you just want straight. I don't know if it's just mine but I have to disagree with 4th Rock on the Vector. It's a good disc, but it's not all that stable. My Alias is much more HSS and handles headwind better for a good clean shot. It's not going to necessarily be as long as the Verdict though.

If your throwing the Buzzz, a BuzzzOS would be perfect, or the Wasp.

I throw the Hornet. It replaced the Wasp in my bag.

Buzzz OS or Verdict for reliability.

I have a max weight glow Roc3 that is pretty good into the wind. If it is REALLY windy I will throw my BT Hard Harp. I have not had it turn over into a headwind yet, so it might be a good option for you. It doesn't go as far as the Roc3 though.

A fresh KC Roc will fight nearly and headwind. Contrary to what Pb said, almost any fresh max weight KC Roc will fight it.

Really? that has never been my experience. That is not to say a KC roc is BAD in a headwind, but to me there is a HUGE difference between a max weight roc and a truly overstable midrange.
