Discraft Meteor is where it is at for this slot. It has a nice turn but will fade back slightly. Ripped on Hyzer it will go straight. Get a heavy ESP 177+ and you will be happy. I love it because if feels like a ultimate frisbee but smaller of course.

I throw GL. Too much overlap to throw a Fuse in GL and Opto?

roc is much closer, look at the rims.
I tried a KC Roc and it wasn't for me. The bead affected the feel that I was looking for.

Haven't worked on hyzer flipping much. When I do throw my Fuse on a nice hyzer, I can get it to flip and go straight....just not consistently. I'm looking for more of a disc I could rip flat and go straight...but softly finishing left.

Is your fuse GL or opto? Weight? and does it have dome or more concave/flat top?

I suggest finding an Opto 180g+ domey fuse which will be much more HSS and also have a little low speed fade compared to a lighter GL which flip much easier and have no fade after thrown a few rounds.

I'll second or third the heavier opto sugestion. My flat GL was a flipmeister. Went back to opto and was happy again.

Learning to consistently hyzer-flip a fuse as well as being able to throw it on a controlled hyzer will be a great thing for your game over-all. You can throw a fuse on nearly any DG line given the conditions and it is probably one of the longest flying midranges I have ever thrown. Discing up may just hide problems with your form which is not bad given you get the shot you are looking for but will hinder your development of a "clean" throw.

I rescind my recommendation, you are right they don't feel identical. I've thrown a lot of midranges and I don't know one that feels truly identical to a fuse. In my opinion the fuse has an extremely generic profile aside from the unique flare/ramp rim which unsurprisingly feels very similar to most other midrange rims in hand. I don't care what the best midrange is or if anyone else in the world throws a Buzzz and I am sure extremely few people do aside from Discraft and some of their team. I will not recommend a roc. Would you prefer I recommend a MD2? I do not think it feels much more like a fuse than a Buzzz and I like the Buzzz's flight much more. Nevermind, I recommend a flat C-MD2 now. Also I would like to set in writing what everyone already knows, new013 is a troll whether he means to be or not and every once in a while he will find a way to incite a negative reaction from you.
