Default Midrange questions

So, my backhand isn't the most powerful and I would like some recommendations on midranges that can take decent power. The mids I currently throw now are a gold line compass, a star coyote for turnovers and a prime truth for finishing overstable. Is there anything that flies similar to any of those that can take a little more power? because sometimes I turn them over, would this be due to being beat in?

Ya know what, you probably are right, because I for some reason was strictly sidearm for 2 years.

Yeah, SOMETIMES turning them over screams form issue.
In my experience if thrown well the Compass can take as much power as one can put into it and just fly straight.

I've only tried a handful of Compasses, but they could all handle full power shots without turning for me (none were worked in though). I'd be concerned that it's a form issue. Pretty much any mid should handle a clean 300' BH shot without doing anything weird, and the Compass can handle far more than that IME.

How far are you throwing these mids? Here's video of Eric McCabe throwing a Truth 300' on a rope. If yours is turning over, the form video suggestion is the best suggestion in this thread.

Well...I've seen video of Ricky Wysocki turning a compass over too much on throws sometimes. He seems to throw the Anchor quite a lot now, which I makes sense to me. A soft hyzer with that is sometimes more reliable than a straighter throw with a Compass.

There are endless examples of pro players turning over their discs more than they wanted. This does does not necessarily mean they have form issues. Watch video of top players throwing drivers from hole #1 of Maples Hill Golds. It is almost impossible to predict where the discs will end up.
