I've tooled around with premium mids for about a year and have pretty much solidified my lineup. All 180g c-line or champion:
Md4 - overstable, windy, hyzer and click shots
Md3 (flat top) - straight with a reliable fade.
Md2 (semi flat) - s curve action
Mako3 - gentle turnovers or hyzerflips

What i love about this setup is the consistent feel discs to disc; even with 4 molds they all feel very similar. Some others that I also like are c-line md, g-line md3, and infinite chariot and all fly fairly similar to what I bag. Premium plastic and headless or microbes mids is not everyone's cup of tea, but I can't get enough of them. I've had the same mids in the bag for 6 months and they haven't changed much.

I've got this setup (but have a Meteor in place of a Tursas). And though I don't like recommending Swedish plastic stateside, the Tursas is a good pair with a Buzzz. Same concave angle on the wing. They feel alike in the hand.

^Meh, not that they feel entirely different, but that's like saying a Roc and Spider feel the same in the hand. Disregarding feel, Tursas is an awesome mold. I eventually switched back to a Fuse (started Fuse, tried Tursas, went back to Fuse) but YMMV...we're all different.


Both molds were a temporary love affair that tried to get in the way of Cobras for me. Eventually I went back to Cobras which I've thrown for years and years. Currently carrying base Buzzz' but no matter what I'll always cherish times with the Cobra. 11/10 roller

Alternatively I'm thinking of bagging a tursas as an US mid and one of the following two lineups:

TP Tursas 174g
Star Mako3 175ish g
Star 175ishg or beat champ 180g Roc3, cycle in the star maybe
Mortar or the like

-OR-

TP Tursas 174g
Ti Buzzz 175ish g / a BuzzzSS+Buzzz combo
Mortar or the like, possibly a BuzzzOS+zone combo

My fairways are speed 6-7 innova and my driving putters are judges, shields or pures, if that matters.

I don't see a clear advantage of one over the other, aside from the fact that the leaps in stability are possibly more evenly spaced between mortar / roc3 / mako3 / tursas vs the possible overlap between beefy Z buzzz / buzzzSS / tursas. I think if anything the idea of slimming down to a tursas / beefy buzzz / mortar sounds the nicest. Thoughts?
I'd probably take the best of both worlds: spotting you the Tursas, I'd add the Mako3 and the Ti Buzzz, then a Mortar, Zone, or my favorite, the Hornet...

Side note: I may need to try a Mortar. Keep hearing lots of positive things about it.

Mortar
Verdict/Roc3
Z Buzzz SS/Star Mako3
TP Tursas



Man there are a lot of good mids. My biggest headscratcher left at this point is - will the BuzzzSS start to overlap with the Tursas if I'm not careful? The SS I used to own was actually plenty stable for my power at the time, so maybe I'd be OK.

Same concern with the Star Mako3 - say I throw it on practically every hole, and pull out the Tursas only on technical shots... I could see the Mako3 beating into overlap. At that point I might consider grabbing a JL Mako3, likely max weight. Can anyone comment on the relative stability and life cycle of the star and JL Mako3s?

I didn't think they were that far apart. I think its closer to me saying pair a Spider with a Gator, but as you said, YMMV.
