Those are ESP, though, right? I'd like to stick with Z plastic if at all possible.

Nope, I'm still throwing Opto Pains also. I've gone to an all-Scandinavian mid line-up of Pain, Warship, and Fuse. Pain isn't a bad OS Buzzz complement but it feels a lot beefier and flies more Roc-like IMO.

I haven't thrown Z Nebs but lots of ESP AR Nebs so I can only guess that they'd fly a lot like a domey, heavy AR Neb, maybe with worse glide? Still, the Nebula is the closest thing to a Buzzz that doesn't become flippy that there is IMO.

The Zone is a good OS Buzzz complement too, but it's decidedly shorter and meathookier. A beat to snot one should do a bang up job though and they feel very similar to a Buzzz.

Hornet is IMO the odd man out, especially in terms of feeling like a Buzzz. It's beadless but it's noticeably different, shallower feeling. I'm not crazy about how they fly but my sample size is really limited so you can disregard that.

If you want something just a tick more overstable a good, flat C-MD2 is a nice Buzzz complement too. It has a microbead but it's hardly noticeable.

I'd cut you a deal on one or both. Sorry I couldn't help but throw that out there.

Those look sweet! I'm looking forward to what you have to say about them. I played today, and my X Buzzz is turning more than ever, so I think it's definitely time to get an overstable mid.

Sorry if my post saying I was going to get a Hornet wasn't clear. What I meant was that I already have a Hornet on the way. Thanks for the offer, though.

Hmm. I hate to triple-post, but I suppose since it's my thread...

I went to 2 different Play it Again Sports and a Johnny Mac's (in St. Louis for the holidays with my family) today, and I didn't really find anything at all interesting. There were no Drones or Zones to be found, much less a Nebula, and the Hornets I found were all around 150 grams and domey. The rim on it felt nice, though, and I think it will suit me, provided the disc flies as expected.

I really think my preferences are as follows (excluding the Hornet since I know I'm already getting one):

1. Z Nebula
2. Glo Buzzz
3. Zone
4. Drone

Damn auto correcting phone...Booter. not bower.
The zone and drone are really beefy though. If you're looking for an over stable mid, but not a meat hook, I'd avoid the drone. The zone might be okay. I replaced my Pain with my Jokeri...So, Hornet for Zone is a possibility

I think Hornets are underated, I've only seen one other person besides me that had one. But if you want to go another route, I've heard the Sparkle Quantum Sentinals are like mini Banshees
I want my overstable disc to be overstable, hornet is still pretty new and it's a straight thrower. I'm not a fan lol.
