Default understable midrange: what's in your bag?

i'm recently finding myself in the market for an understable midrange but haven't thrown many. i've got a 167 panther that kind of fills the spot, but i want a heavier disc and maybe a little more understable. i'd like to stick with premium plastic and by no means am i looking to fill the spot with a "beat in" this or that.

purpose for the disc: hyzer flips, flattened hyzers, anny approach shots with little/no fade, broadening my exposure to the understable world

initially i was thinking 175 star/echo kite, or maybe a star wedge. i wouldn't mind some input from lat64 fans and the discrafters. maybe a buzzz ss to compliment my esp buzzz

Fuse is a great disc from latitude. Has a ton of glide. Holds lines great. It takes some practise to throw this disc but its amazing once you get it.

172g ESP Meteor in my bag. Should be just what you're looking for.

after reading this i started reading other meteor posts... you might be right!

sounds like it's a good understable pairing for the buzzz (which is my primary mid). any thoughts on meteor vs buzzz ss?

I need to get to the store this weekend and lay hands on some plastic!

I carry a meteor as well. you could look for a similar weight mako. those will hold whatever line you put out there, they are VERY predictable

Yep, as others have said, an X comet works great for the types of shots your described (actually a Z comet works well too). I use both X and Z comets for those shots - and many others. Comets are awesome.
