Sorry for the rambling post, I kind of wandered off there

The point I was trying to make is similar to what others have said. If your arm speed is low and/or you are throwing lower speed fairways like a leopard, etc. then you likely won't see as much use for mids ... but increasing your arm speed and spreading the speeds out may have you needing them.

Anybody who thinks midranges are unnecessary or being passed by in the game should ask why mfgrs continue to crank out new midrange molds.

I love mids. I especially love mids for:

Downhill holes - A slight hyzer flip with a slightly understable mid can glide straight forever. Opto Fuse in my case.
Holes with trouble near the basket - Less skip than a driver.
Tight fairways - I feel more confident with a slow mid in my hand than any other class of disc.
Longer life at each stage of wear - A relatively blunt mid is less deformed by impact than a sharp edged driver. A mid should be able to absorb more hits over each stage in its life cycle than a faster disc.

The harp has taken a lot of the putter approach shots I used to throw because I've found it to be effective for me both BH and FH.

I've never considered myself a power player so maybe that's why I lean on mids more.
This fits me to a Tee (except I use a Rhyno instead of a Harp).

I don't have the arm a lot of guys do and I found myself trying to compete on "their" level and ended up just becoming more frustrated. So, last August I started throwing rounds with nothing but mids and putters in the hope of improving "my" game. It has been quite an eye opener.

My accuracy has improved, I've gained distance and I'm not throwing any where near as hard, and nothing flies easier from a standstill for me than a mid.. Yes, I have given up a little distance to the Teebird and Leopard, but I'm almost always in play and my score has dropped a bit because of it. My Comet now goes as far as my Leopard used to, so until spring, I'm playing the mid/putter game!

I once threw a bubble gum 182g opto fuse over 700' nearly dead straight at a ski hill course.

Still one of the most magical shots ive released from these fingers.

I believe it! The Fuses is one of the best molds out there for big downhill shots. It just never wants to fade.
