Default Meathook Overstable Putters vs Midranges

I have long left out the slower "meathook" slot in my bag. I don't like lugging around a full bag of plastic, especially overlapping molds.

In those situations where a short to medium hard turn is necessary, it seems like the distance and shot coverage gap between overstable putters and overstable midranges is very slim.

How do you decide which speed of super overstable disc to carry, or do you just carry both?

I carry a gator and a firebird. I used to throw a drone, but figure that i can cover a wider range of shots by adjusting power with a putter and a fairway

I carry Harps and Suspects for approach shots, a Verdict midrange, a XXX fairway and an Enforcer driver. I like having just the right speed disc for a shot. Powering down a faster disc just doesn't fly the same for me as a normal powered throw with the appropriate disc.

If you're looking for a good tweener, the Harp, Suspect, and Zone all fit the bill. Shorter than a mid, longer than a putter and overstable.

I carry a VP for OS putting/short approaches and a Zone for slightly longer OS approaches.
There may be some overlap, but not enough for me to bag just one over the other.

This except a zone instead of the gator.

Here's an informative and out of control thread
I mainly power down my beefy champ eagle to do overstable duties. Other than that, a fresh roc on hyzer is pretty beefy. And, if all else fails, I slip a champ gator in the bag.

I carry a zone and a FAF firebird.
And the zone flys farther.

I carry a Zone and then it jumps to Firebird. No overstable mid. I don't mind powering down.
