True, but like with putters, midranges can be a very individual thing. And while it's the archer not the arrow, some arrows suit some archers best, while others don't.

The demand for such different types of flight isn't nearly as prevalent in drivers, with discs like Cyclones, Gazelles, and Sabers going the way of the buffalo.
I like the between floating traditional bigger 180 gram diameter and driver style where the disc is big 180 gram diameter but is more big 180 gram fairway driver like in the way it flies, a rare combo that Innova made when they 3 topped a Shark. Shark is too putter like with the dome making the glide too much like a putter, even a ROC is more midrange like

Oh yeah, drivers there is still a demand for different types of fairway drivers including almost midrange like fairway discs like the Glide and Zombie or Leopard/3 to even the Archer/Stratus discs. Then the control driver like fairway molds like the Mantis or Dragon. Last some slower speed 9 that get called fairway driver.

Distance drivers yes there is a number of them simply due to needs like wind disc, roller shots, turnover and long bombers.
