I just bought a Berg a couple of weeks ago and it's the best forehand upshot disc I've ever had. I only throw it 150 or so in but for that distance it is dead straight and sits down when it gets there. Great disc!

I need something more stable than a slightly beat in roc and a brand spanking new buzzz. i was thinking a wasp would be good (in ESP), but i've never thrown one. so for someone who has thrown a buzzz as a forehand mid and a wasp as the same, do they work well for that? or for someone who has thrown a buzzz and any other mid forehand, how do those other discs compare to the buzzz?
md3?

IMO it is because the zone is shallow and has a wider rim width. The zone also has a low shoulder, like height distance from the parting line to top of flight plate is small. The shoulder is where many of the Innova overstable putters fail to be "forehandable"

I think the shape and overstability. It’s smaller diameter with a more forehand grip friendly wing shape. Handles torque a bit better as well so if you have a sloppy release it doesn’t throller on you as much.

To the OP, mortar. A domey frontline if you can find one.

low profile, overstable, no bead. Makes it very forgiving. I can forehand a buzzz with some success but a Roc comes out with all kinds of OAT. I guess I just need to practice with beaded discs to correct that. But I have always been very good with the Zone both forehand and backhand

Yeah, the Zone was the first disc that I could get a consistent forehand out of. Perfect combo of a comfortable rim shape and overstability to forgive OAT. It's still my most flicked disc since I'm a 90% backhand player.
