While I carry 3 mids of varying stabilities, my slower stuff gets way more use. Pure/Harp/Theory have become my workhorses, while Verdict/Truth/Meteor are getting left in the bag more and more.

I'm rocking 4 mids-Roc3, Kc Roc, Dx Roc, Dx Roc, All in different stages of wear. I pulled my super OS BB Roc3 in favor of an ESP Zone.

I bag 5 putters-Zone, Jk Aviar, Mcpro Aviar, Dx Aviar, and 150-class Soft Magnet.

Here recently I'm not actually throwing mid range/approach shots with my mids, but more driving with them. Anything under about 290ft is a putter for me, but many variables can increase or decrease that number including how high of a ceiling I have, wind, etc.

Putters really are an essential part of my game, where mids used to be. As my arm grows I like slower stuff if that makes any sense.

175 and 165-168 Each On Pures and Envy's

Pures don't like Headwinds nor Crosswinds, but Calm or Tailwind, it's 200'-315' & holds whatever line i put it on.

I use all Envy's every round!. Drives, Long Approaches, All FH Under 250'. I'm RHBH/RHFH

175 P: BH Hyzers, 300'> Hyzers with skip, won't turn and burn FH unless OAT
165 P: S-Curve Machine! In Headwind! 300'> Tighter Shots than 175 P
175 S: BH Hyzers that Stick, 300' Slight Hyzers, Windy Helidrops
165 S: Favorite! 330' open field distance, Big Annys that finish flat, Helidrops, Stable Long Approaches

Nice, yeah I can see how the combo of those would do almost all the Roc/Buzzz stuff for you or at least within 30' of it.

I currently carry 5 mids, 2 putters and a slowish fairway. (see sig) I use my P Envy like I would a Roc though and drive with it on probably a fourth of my throws currently and use it for 80% of my approaches. It feels to small in diameter to be called a mid, but I agree, it flies like a mid, reminds me of my friend's beat glow Roc.

The rest of my mids are mostly for specialty shots, but I love them all.

Pure's are 200-300 Golf Distance Low Ceiling
Envy's are 200-300 Golf Distance High Ceiling
Mid's are 300-330 Golf Distance Low Ceiling.
Wooded New England play requires mids agreed, but my Teebirds cover 330-375' all shots. Not much Room for mids!

I tried the putter over mid approach, but it just doesn't work for me. I have extra large hands and to curl my fingers in that far on a thin rimmed putter causes me release issues. So I've modified the throwing putters where I need a good grip to a Pig and a suspect.

I'll throw fan grip approach shots with a G* Aviar driver or a Yeti though.

I throw my Ion* more than all the mids in my bag combined, and I don't even putt with it.
