When I roll my wrist (on purpose obviously) I need the overstabilitiy to compensate for me. Flex shots are all the rage.

In their defense, MVP fans had been asking for an OS mid for years. The Deflector (which was released just two weeks ago) is the disc they've wanted. (I'm obviously a MVP fan, but never really wanted a beefy mid. They don't suit my game)

The Justice was put out in 2015, that's a pretty delayed reaction if true

also more of a straight/stable than true OS, wouldn't you say?

My pointing to the Mortar is oversimplifying, it was just a recent example of an OS selling well.

It's just weird to me that so many manufacturers are choosing to plug that gap NOW, after leaving it alone for a long time.

Well, Innova was really empty in that area. Then they started trying to satisfy Paul McBeth's need for an OS mid/approach, and now we have the Aviar3, AviarX3, Rat, RocX3, Caiman, Gator3, etc. And some of the others have been filling their gaps in that area, as well. I'm not complaining; I'd rather have a plethora of choices than a lack of choices...

With the number of manufacturers increasing and the marketing desire to have three or four new discs for each manufacturer hit the market every year not that surprising this sort of thing occurs and I say yay for the dawning age of the OS mid and good riddance to the age of squirlly understable high speed drivers.

Default What a glut of OS mids we are seeing hit the market

OS mids are my go to approach. I’m not a huge arm. But I have enough of an arm that I can power up a mortar dead strait 250’ in any wind/no wind and it will be pretty much the same, and will fade every time if given the height.
. I can throw as hard as I want and trust I won’t go post 270’, I dunno call me crazy but the OS mid works for me like powering down a fairway driver never could. Literally changed my game.
