The truth is longer for sure and less fade but I'm a fan of the shark mold. I would say the dome on the truth is closer to a shark than a buzzz but it's not domey. It's not super flat either. A nice mix.


I've actually got my champ shark, z buzzz, and a truth here with me. I'll go take a couple profile comparison shots on the hot tub lid. That always comes out better.

I'm curious, if it is so fast for a mid, how it does not have that hard fade out when powered down, like the buzzz?

That is my least favorite part about the Buzzz, and is what ultimately led me to choose a beaded mid (Wasp in my case) for my workhorse mid. My Wasps show a similar fade regardless of speed, which makes them much easier to throw consistently. I found the Buzzz to require speed. Throw it at it's intended speeds and it was a lazer with no fade (Great!), lighten up on it even a little bit and it faded out early and harder than anticipated (Not so great!).

I appreciate that, that will help me determine whether to invests in the first runs or not. I love my suspect. The truth sounds like an awesome complement

I'm curious about that too. It just doesn't have a heavy fade. Even new. That's my opinion on it at least. I've never thrown a mid that was that straight when brand new. Not even a Buzzz SS. The tursas was close but it turns and then fades out. I get even less fade out of the truth.

It will still go left a little more as it comes to a stop from spinning but honestly I've never had a new mid that would act like this one does new. I've always had to take an old buzzz or new buzzz ss and beat it in for a while before I could count on it to land on the same line as it flew.

I think people who kind of advanced their game and counted on the buzzz and wasp combo will really enjoy the verdict and truth combo for those same shots. I'm a big fan of discraft mids and still am but they don't come in these plastics and I'm a fan of this plastic. These are grippier and softer than the lucid suspect to me. More like the VIP tursas and some of the other new opto mids. Not floppy soft but not a stiff rigid flight plate either.

Any idea what range of weights will be available? I like low 170s for mids but have noticed the DD stuff seems to come out heavier...

On their domes, Buzzz on the left, Truth on the right. You can see the truth has more dome to it but not much. To be fair that is the flattest z buzzz I've ever owned.




Shark on the left, Truth on the right. Look about the same to me.

My biggest worry when I hear something is "like a Buzzz" is this:

The Core is like a Buzzz! Hell no it isn't. It's like a beat Buzzz SS.
The Warship is a Better Buzzz! Hell no it isn't. It's too domey and you can't trust it in the wind.
The Mako/Shark/Coyote/whatever else is like a Buzzz! Just no. Please stop.

Just like everyone wants to copy the Roc or improve it somehow, it's not happening.

I think it would be awesome if this really does fly like a Buzzz, but I'm definitely going to be a little skeptical until I see some good videos. I'm also guessing that this feels like a Hornet in the hand due to the micro bead and bit of dome...

I believe the weights were pretty varied on this mold with more of them in the 178-180 range. I'm not 100% sure but the one that was tossed to me the moment I walked through the door was a blue 170g. It felt great and that's when I asked for two of the brightest ones they had above 175g and I left with the pink and yellow both at 178g I think. Love the yellow. It's not as translucent and feels a little more firm. Exactly like my VIP Tursas.

I think it was you in a PM I told I'm not pleased about having five different molds for mids but since they're all Lat and I am playing better than I did with all Discraft mids I'll keep at it. I know I'm done adding mids though for sure. I have everything covered with a Verdict, Suspect, Truth, Classic Fugitive, and VIP Tursas.
