Default Need some input on a mid

so, i have a slot in my bag that has once again become empty and its proving to be difficult to find the mid i need. im now on my 3rd broken mid within the last 6 months. 1st was an old z wasp from 04, 2nd was another z wasp from the same era and last weekend was a buzzz from 2014.

all 3 were very similar in flight and seasoned but not thrashed.its a very neutral spot in the bag that i need and rely on a lot. hyzerflip to flat,very little fade or thrown flat,it would drift right but still fade out if given enough height. it was my go to mid slot that i use a lot in the woods out here.

after cracking both wasps, i sold them off because i just dont have the time to season one in. i went back to buzzzs and found this one that was seasoned but ultimately met the same demise.

so i need suggestions! i still have buzzzs but not seasoned and if i have to beat some in,i just may. im considering the gobi,a seasoned fossil gila(which i bag for the more stable spots) impact, mako3 ,element or even a buzzz ss

the gobi has gained my interest based on the vids ive seen and the way risley talks it up. it doesnt seem to get much love here but i have a friend who has one so i may give it a try anyway.

im just looking for other options. TIA

A Star or Champion Mako3 might do you well while you're beating in a Buzzz.

I'd think a BuzzzSS would work well, also, but I've only thrown one once, a disc I found that was inked and I was able to return to its owner.

truth would be too stable for that slot unless i find one seasoned but thats basically the same thing as me seasoning a buzzz,i do like a fast mid though.

mako3 is kind of what im leaning towards too if i can find one to try out . i havent thrown a buzzz ss since they came out years ago and at that time they were actually stable and not understable like they were said to be.

Recycled Core beats in pretty quick. I have one that's dead straight. Faster/longer than a Mako3 though IME.

My recent epiphany was to season a bunch of wasp like discs, maybe you've heard of this disc, the prophecy. I went this way because of my love for the wasp I took one look and knew that was the shape I had to have, if you like Wasps it's worth it they come in baseline so seasoning them isn't that big a task. The first round I ordered a pink one that was kinda rubbery, it was less stable out of the gate and with a comet compliment gave me enough time to beat it in just right, now it's the stable-US as I'm working in a stiffer one (proto plastic) that's my ’.02 but wtf do I know
