Default Understable mid range.

I know many people don't believe in understable mid ranges but I think I need one. This is why.. I want to practice a hyzer flip turnover shot for a specific hole and to learn a new line/shot. I want to throw a mid on a hyzer and have it flip up flat and turn over late in the flight out to about 320ish.

I have a g star leopard that I use for understable fairway but it's pretty stable and won't turnover at 320. My initial thought was Westside tursas. And then I thought mvp because I've really liked every mvp discs I've thrown apart from the vector.
Tell me what you think. Go!

I would look into a Switch. It will definitely turn before it gets to the 320 mark, if thrown with a touch of hyzer.

That late turnover is hard to achieve with an out of the box disc in my experience. The best late turn flight paths I have ever seen were with old heavy beat Rocs and putters. Takes a long time to get a disc to that point. The out of the box under-stable stuff just ended up turning and burning for me once they beat in...could be a form issue I dunno. Right now I am throwing a flat champ Mako3 and I can turn it over or throw it dead straight..but that late flip hasn't been possible yet.

My Fuse is really flippy that way, the disc doesn't want to fade so it's just trying to manage the angle, height and power to achieve the line.

Just get an X Comet, throw it a lot for about a month or two, and you'll be there.

Tangent might fit the bill. Hyzer flip to a late turnover, and zero fade.

I think you're confusing this with people not believing in overstable mids. Understable ones are very useful and a good learning tool.
To achieve the shot you are describing I would throw an X Comet, or a beat up DX Roc if you want something a bit more forgiving.

I'll recommend a Crosslap Lucky. That's my go-to understable mid.

ESP Meteor around 170g and flat. If you have a PIAS near by, look through their used selection.

Comet is also a good sugesstion
