I have been looking for an OS mid and putter for about a year now. I don't want to jinx it, but I'm trying out a champ ring of gators gator and a new ESP zone and I'm pretty much 100% in love so far and definitely planning to keep both in the bag

I bag a Recon and Frontline Mortar for Very OS/FH flicks, I also bag a Aviarx3. I use them differently depedning really on just the distance I feel comfortable using them with. Aviarx3 short drives and approaches up to 175ish ft and mortar for anything around 200-250

The thing that makes a Harp so great is that you can make it go dead straight.

More than half of the fun of disc golf for me is leaening the lines. My US and neutral discs are the funnest of all to throw some days.

I haven't thrown all of the discs you assessed, but it seems pretty spot on to me. They all do almost the same thing, it comes down to a bit of personal preference. I think Harps and Zones in premium are interchangeable in flight though, it depends on the disc. You got a beefier Harp I guess, but I have also thrown Harps that hold straight a little longer. Same thing though, just like any mold varies a bit.

I also agree with going with the slower more putter type ones to pair with a mid like the Verdict, I can get away with a Zone then Verdict for FH approaches...obviously the Zone is way more OS but that's why the Verdict is a good step up when you need more distance on a low line.

And you are right that the DX Rhyno is WAY less OS than a premium Rhyno, especially champ. It wasn't your form. The DX Rhyno is more firmly straight, almost like a Stud or something of that realm. Whereas Champ Rhynos, the few times I have thrown them, are glideless and OS.

there's a slight overlap, in that i don't NEED both discs. if i had to simplify my bag by say cutting the # of discs in half, i might take out one of the two. but they definitely feel and fly different enough for me to plan to keep both!

Not to be antagonistic, but couldn't the same be said for anyone carrying 20ish discs that all should fly different lines and/or distances?

The majority of my upshots are FH so I do rely on OS discs. The comment from VictorB about losing touch with finesse shots makes sense but ultimately it's about getting close to the basket. He did make me think about it enough to throw a couple extra putter BH upshots today with mixed results. My finesse game can definitely use some work.
