Default Building a bag: Midranges

I got into disc golf this summer and I am having a lot of fun with it. I have gone from shooting almost 30 over to 10 over on 18 holes in 2 months. I started with a dx starter pack and then bought some extra discs. I am pretty set right now for putters and fairways but I am looking for flushing out my midranges since I only have 2 right now: 148g dx shark and 175g champ mako3. I have been liking the mako3 but I am more comfortable and accurate with my shark. Would it be good to just get another shark in a heavy weight or should I look at trying out more midranges? I don't want to have a bag with too many different molds but I don't want to have just one overstable mold that I cycle to get turnover discs ie. a roc. Since I like innova and discmania plastic, the midranges I am looking at are:
Innova Manta
Innova roc
Innova roc3
Innova Lion
Discmania MD1
" MD2
" MD3
" MD4
As far as my understanding goes the disc from understable to overstable are
Manta, MD2, Roc3, (Roc MD1 Lion are similar) MD3, MD4
Since my 2 mids right now are straight flying, I think I would like something that is slight overstable that will beat in to understable and I can use for a variety of shots. I think the Lion, Roc3, or MD2 all fit this bill. And then I would complement this with a more overstable mid for wind/hyzers like an md3 or md4?

What your recommendations?

I think everyone should try a dx roc, especially if you’re looking to beat it in a turnover disc. That is an iconic disc in dg history, because of that shot specifically.

Other than that, go with what feels best in your hand. Most of those on the list will fly fairly similarly, except the md4 will probably be more over stable than all the others.

Another disc to try is a heavy weight Shark or get a G-Star Shark as the old Star Run is finally running out. I use the Shark mold for approach shots with 2 Champion Shark 3 is my true midrange at 175 grams, anyhow the Shark I use is Star with an oop Pro, both also at 175 grams with 2 true Star backup ~175 grams and a messed up Star ~175 grams that is almost G-Star just sans the extra grip G-Star has that Star is missing.

I think this is the right answer. Or just get a dx roc since you’ll probably end up there anyways if you are an innova fan

Not sure if you've mentioned it or not before, but are you a fan of dx plastic, say Rocs and Eagles and possibly some Milenium molds too? I think you might like them. If you do like them, you may consider spamming your man crush love juices over every other thread that mentions a variance of disc. Speed, classification, stability etc. I think you'd be great at it. Give it a shot at least.
