Default Mid range disc advice

I'm rather new to disc golf, so before buying a mid range disc i wanted to know what you guys considered to be the best. im looking for something that is stable in flight, but wont roll 25 feet after it hits the ground 5 feet from the pin.

--thanks for your help

What are you talking about? That never happens.

OP, depending your skill level, I find that a Coyote is a great noob friendly midrange.

I wish the Hawk was currently available in nicer plastic cause it is a real nice evenly stable mid-range.

midranges are like the best discs, they're all so awesome you have trouble finding one that ISN'T good.

I've got a buzz that I use most of the time but I like Roc's, skeeter, wasp, drone, evolution and comet that I've tried.

They're all going to do what you want, the Comet can get a bit flippy same with (not sure which one) wasp or drone...

I forgot to mention! Shark! Everybody is okay with a shark!

I hate sharks, they sicken me. I'd rather throw a Roc that has been used as a chew toy than a Shark, and I throw Buzzzes.

But yeah, Mids are great. I throw Wasps, Rocs, Buzzzes, Nebulas, Impacts (Noob approved), QMS's, Sentinels, Skeeters (noob approved), the list goes on. Qms's are really underrated mids.

Buzzz, Coyote, Cro, Gator, Nebula...and even the Roc are good choices.

Being new you might not realize how loaded that question is. Your mid is a disc that you should be throwing almost all of your shots with. Seriously! Many players have developed a love for their versitile mid- usually a buzzz or wasp from discraft, or a roc from innova. Now please don't ask which is better.

Well, that course doesn't sound too challenging to me but I say you can't go wrong with a Buzzz, Roc, or Qms. Impacts are cool b/c they have a really driver like feel to them, just get a heavier one if you feel like you have a big arm.
