Default Comet and truths? Or comet and aftershocks?

I don't throw many midrange shots during a round. I rely on wizards for many of those. I throw a banshee at slower speeds for OS mid shots. Truth or aftershock? I'm gonna learn the intricacies of the comet... It needs a friend.

The Buzzz is a beadless Wasp. The bead does make thw shoulder mold up a bit different. The Wasp feels much better in the hand.

Truth/Emac Truth is more like a straight shorter fairway driver in flight rather than a more stable Comet pairing. So if you want something to hit the low ceilings the Comet can't and push down a tunnel, this may be good. If you want something to throw the same way as a Comet but hold your angle or end with more hyzer, then these fly in a pretty different way. I have no idea on the Aftershock.

I like that way of thinking.

Do you really need a midrange? What are those ``midrange shots'' you want to have it for? Can't you throw your more straightish fairway driver at slower speeds for the non-OS mid shots you cannot reach with the Wizards?

Just curious ...

Do you currently throw any mids, and if so, what?

I always paired Comets with KC Rocs. They feel similar too. I also think the Wasp is better than the truth as a pairing.

I tried the Truth for a while, to me it flies like a shorter fairway and I never liked that I couldn't gauge distance with it. Lot's of people like the glide and are always yapping about how far the Truth goes, but for me, mids are about accuracy, not distance and un-range-able glide.

The huge difference in feel between the Comet and Truth would bother me a lot. Comets and aftershocks are great together. Same with Rocs. Feel is similar enough, but you get different flights out of them. The aftershock has more distance potential than the Roc in my opinion, so that little extra separation gives it the nod in my bag. The Truth also flies very odd when you take power off of it, more like a very slow fairway than a true midrange/multipurpose disc.

To me the best pairing would be a roc3. I used to throw comets and ranchos together. But there is a detectable speed difference. Comet was faster out of the hand. Picking up a nice os roc3 (metal flake, eo gstar, etc) is a great complement to the comet. Or possibly a MJ comet for the subtle more stability. Loving the esp glo comets.
