US- pick one: Meteor/ Comet/ Buzzz SS
Agreed, although I do like Z and Glo comets so I will likely eschew the Buzzz for a stable comet. In fact, I might go:

Mortar or OS discraft mold - zone is likely
Z Wasp
GloZ Comet
Tursas or Meteor

Check out a DGA Quake for your Mortar slot. A little longer and a little beefier than a Zone. DGA proline plastic is pretty sweet too.

No guesswork on whether it has a bead at least.

If you're carrying Wasp and Comet that's fine. I feel like you can cover both workhorse roles with just a Buzzz, then have one OS mold and one US mold.

As far as covering both roles with multiple buzzes? you might be right. With one buzz tho, I don't know if I could squeeze an overstable flightpath out of the same buzz that I can get powered down neutral flights. Of course, I could work nose and hyzer angles to some extent.

The way I have my current mids setup I am not worried about minimizing molds, so I have no reason to throw a wasp-like buzzz and a comet-like buzzz when a wasp and comet will do fine or better.

I get that, as I do the same with Shark/Shark 3 however those 2 discs are closer then ones you use. I use Shark differently as it is almost a hybrid midrange/putter more on the midrange side due to it being a bit faster then other discs on the putter side of the midrange/putter hybrid equation. The Shark 3 is just like a low dome ROC in terms of flight but beadless.

Checked out a Quake at Spinners on the Green in Scottsdale last week. Not very mortar-like in the hand or by profile, more like a BuzzzOS bottom with a sharper top. I could see it flying similarly to a mortar.

Presently bagging these putters and mids:

Dagger for putting
backup Dagger for throwing
Proton Spin
Neutron Envy
Possibly a Plasma Proxy unless I feel like I can hyzer flip the Spin for straight putter drives

Recon Mortar
Z Wasp
Z Comet
TP Tursas


I feel like I should know better than to necro this thread, BUUUUUUUT - If I were to seek a GYRO option to replace the wasp and comet portion of my mids, what would be the best bet? Basically a longer version of the envy/proxy combo.
