Default Need help selecting mids (roc throwers)

My roc flies beautifully and I'm probably more comfortable with it than any other disc in my bag. Thus, I'm quite happy with the "multiple rocs in various stages of wear" approach that people have with mids. I've tried other stuff, but had lackluster results. So, if your mid game isn't roc based, I guess this question doesn't pertain to you, but for those who use rocs, what else do you carry to round out your mid game. Since the roc is such a versatile mold, I can't come up with many niches it can't fill, but I also don't see how an extra mold or two won't improve my approach game. The only disc that I really want to try is a gator. It seems like a bit of a specialty disc, though. Any thoughts on the gator or other discs that could help compliment my roc game?

get a buzzzz and don't look back. the gator is a great specialty midrange when going right is not an option. It doesn't turn over in wind and doesn't have much glide. I use mine allot! but the buzzz is my fav disc ever

A Sentinel MF is very Roc like and awesome for headwinds and for situations where you absolutely cannot go right. I love it for big hyzer spikes.

cro/gator for a more overstable (although I'd like a wasp, super roc, or drone), and a stingray for a more understable mid.

I throw a roc, a buzz and a gator.

My roc is super beat in and I can't get it to do anything but go right. My buzz is my utility mid/placement driver. My gator is indispensable, anything under 230 and left at all I pull it out. Also a good skip disc.

I carry the following mid-ranges...
*179g 2004 Worlds Super Roc
*180g 20th Anniversary Echo Star San Marino Roc
*180g Star Coyote
*175g DX Classic Roc
*175g Glow Champion Whippet-X (Technically not a mid-range but it is the way I use it)

i would say a gator or a drone would be great for you, both very overstable which is the one thing a roc can't do, so i think it would be good for you to fill that spot, i throw buzzz's, but your not here looking for a new main midrange, so look into a gator or drone, good luck

Like others have said I would def go for a Gator for a good overstable midrange. It is the most consistent disc I have in my bag. I have a Star Gator and a DX Gator that has a very very soft center. I have thrown the DX one over 2 years and it is still as consistent as the day I got it.
