170s Claymore, VCobra, Core are all mids that I bag or have bagged that are a bit more stable than my Comet. You could also just get a heavier Comet and/or an Elite Z one. A friend of mine swears by his EMac Truth but it might be a bit more OS than you're looking for.

Edit: Saw that someone else had already mentioned the Claymore so just consider my post and endorsement of that. My current mids are Comet, Claymore, and Verdict.

The Wombat3 (mine is in Star plastic) is a good disc, but might be more understable than what the OP is looking for.
No they are just to the left of nuteral, just get the weight that works best for the Wombat 3. Just might be a bit more but the disc Wombat 3 is like a tad more US Impact at the 170-174 gram weights in flight. The other Impact weights are not great for a disc well not below 170 grams or above 177 grams , do not fly the way Discraft intended and most likely a main reason that the Impact was made out of production.

Bruh.....AXIOM ALIAS is awesome in the woods - its super straight though so no real turn or fade, just 4/4/0/0 - I find it incredibly how straight it flies. If you want a shaper, the MVP Matrix is nice, its like a Buzzz but has a lil initial Turn and then a later decent Fade so 5/4/-1/2

Both are sweet

Those are the kind of flight numbers I'm after! Will look into the Matrix for sure.

Its unique because you can rip it on a tiny hyzer and it will get up to flat and zoom straight with a nice lil fade, but it can be finessed to hold a turn or hold a turn then fade, or just hyzer the whole way. It's like the High speed stability of a worn Buzzz but the fade of a Wasp or Roc3 (or more)

its a unique feel to rim that I find really comfortable. I'd say its my favorite mid but I gotta love the Buzzz more

Matrix is cool though, I suggest finding a FLAT top one in Neutron max weight, the newer runs seem to be nicer. FYI - old ones and Protons (old first runs) have dome and are almost too straight

For a similar stlye disc (with some turn and still solid fade) the Axiom Crave is unique. It feels like a speed 6 fairway, super comfy, but flies like 7/5/-1/2 kinda like an Eagle I suppose but it bites back like a distance driver while travelling Fairway distances but feeling like and easy to grip low speed fairway

for true Shot Shaping I really liked the Crave. but I dropped it for a Volt as its more a traditional Fairway disc that I get better distance.

Otherwise maybe a Verdict? that's flat thin mid that has some fade. DGA Squall. and others im sure,. I dig the Matrix tho

Seen MD3 mentioned a time or two and that’s my vote. Mids I carry are MD/MD3/MD4. MD is very versatile. Easy annys and flip ups. MD3 (crowned eagle color glow), for me, is a bit more beefy and can force it over and know it’ll work out and have some finish or a straight shot that finishes. Also far from a power thrower and at 4000’.

I threw rocs for years and years... the 400g M4 replaced my beat rocs without a hiccup. Great disc.

I agree with the MD3 votes, but it'll need some working in before getting to the -1/1 flight unless you go P-line. Only problem is I don't think that's durable enough if your home course is tightly wooded. MD2 is another option. It's 4/5/0/2 and I seem to get more controllable turn out of it with a reliable fade at the very end of the flight.

A Fuzion Truth or beat in EMac Truth would be good options too.

I started out with a MD2 before going to MD3. Was throwing a MD2 in PLine. I liked the lines I was able to throw with it but the one I have, has a big dome and felt a little awkward in my hand so I tried MD3 and stayed there.
