Beadless OS mids

I currently throw a Pain as my OS mid, but I am wondering if there are any beefier, still beadless (or very micro-beaded) OS mids. Something regular production is preferred. Thanks for the help!

Star cros are pretty beefy and if you can get your hands on some champ cros, you won't find much beefier. Also they use to make star beadless gators, I don't know if they still do or not as I don't throw gators.

The demon also comes to mind.

Hornet will be beefier and has no bead. A Drone or Zone will also be much more OS and have no bead.

You can find beadless star Gators that will suit your needs.

How much beefier are we talking? Have you thrown a Trident? Doesn't get much beefier than that for a mid and it can give you a sick skip too if you like that

LSS is less than a Whippet or XXX but HSS is about the same. Straight for 2/3 of its flight with a sharp cut and big skip.

I would recommend Gold Line so it beats in slightly faster

A Hornet, unless it's different from the Ace Race runs, has a small bead.

Drones, Zones, and, I think, one version of the Gator doesn't either (the glow champs have a bead).

You could also take the Trident/Whippet route and grab a super slow but super beefy fairway driver. I actually have a couple Opto Tridents in my sale thread that are mega-beefy.

Drone has no bead. Beadless Gators are overstable, but not like the beaded ones.
