I'd look at it this way...you like throwing putters, so when do you want to use a mid? When the putter isn't far enough, or when there's too low of a ceiling, or both? Do you throw speed 7ish fairways or 9ish fairways? So basically do you want your mids to act like your putter + distance/glide, like the Comet, or like a fairway - speed/distance/fade, like the Truth?

I can definitely see someone who loves throwing putters leaning on a Comet as the putter + 30-50' midrange and maybe having something else for low ceilings when that putter/Comet can't hit but you don't want to go up to a fairway. If you already use a stable-overstable fairway for this distance range with hyzer or wind and don't feel a gap in the bag, then I guess you don't have a gap. But in the future if you throw the Comet a lot and wish you could have it hold an angle in wind or resist more turn, that's when a more stable version would make sense.

Truth isn't much different than a Comet in terms in turn and fade. I'd go with something more OS.

Rocs and Vectors are pretty good bets since they have a similar rim, Wasp if you want to stick to Discraft. Suspect could work too, but it's got a very different feel.

When you don't throw 70MPH the extra speed and ground push of a Truth makes it carry down low ceilings way farther than a Comet

Agreed about everything you said about stabilities and discs though.

The truth has so much less glide....and all the fade is all dump... yeah, horrid pairing.
