Default Verdict/Truth and Roc3/Mako 3 combos

Reading this new review of the Verdict from Dynamic Discs, it seems to me that the combo of the Verdict and Truth in the same bag would be similar to carrying a mixture of Roc3 and Mako3 discs (Holler, Paul McBeth).

http://allthingsdiscgolf.com/dynamic...erdict-review/

Am I way off-base on this?

What alternative midrange combos do people use (sorry if there's a thread on here already that didn't come up when I searched)? Personally, I go a little shorter, and dig the combo of new-ish Rancho Roc, beat in KC Pro Roc for straight, and the Mako.

I haven't read the article, but have thrown these four molds quite a bit. I would say it is a semi-close comparison. The Truth has a little more stability to it than the Mako3 and the Verdict is a notch faster than the Roc3. Myself, I carry the Verdict/Truth combo because the two feel very similar in the hand. The Roc3/Mako3 feel quite a bit different. I do like the Mako3 though. It is very comfortable in the hand.

The verdict/Truth combo is more stable and longer than the roc3/mako3 combo. My best classic truth is just getting to mako3 status, and is still longer. With both, you can of course cover just about any line you need with these discs in difference weights/plastics/wear though...so I can see the comparison

Verdict/Truth is more akin to Hornet/Buzz

My Verdict is not as OS as I'd like, but since I learned that OS mids are pointless, I guess I should not worry about it.

Wouldn't it be the Mace as the Roc3 ? Dunno what the Mako3 comparison would be.. I've heard a heavy Fuse is similar.

the truth/verdict combo are def faster and more stable. To me the roc3 is closer to the truth than the verdict. although I really like the flights of the T/V combo I prefer a deeper grip and have the roc3 paired with a qms and a gator for wind duties

I use the roc3 / foxbat combo. roc3 for the stable/wind shots and the foxbat is straight and holds any line put on it.

PLEASE, don't start that again… NOT here, NOT again! haha

The tomato colored Verdict I have is very stable, and starts its fade during the middle of the flight and not the end like the Truth. Verdict dosen't necessarily feel like a different mold kinda, but a more stable version of the Truth. Almost as if a really really beat in Verdict could fly like a fresh Lucid Truth. Good combo, I bag it.
