Question Moderately Overstable Mids

There have definately been opinions on the subject of overstable mids, whether they have a place in the bag or not.

But the molds that are discussed are often the Drone, Gator, Pig, Demon, and so on. Very overstable. Some say, "Yes! I have to have one." and others say, "No, I just power down a driver."

But what about those "tweener" mids, like the Sentinel, Warrior, the new Ace Race disc, and such? Not complete meat hooks, but they definately do fade out strongly and are more turnover-proof in wind. And they all seem a bit more overstable than, say a Wasp or a flat top Roc. They never seem to get much discussion.

Let the games begin...is anyone using one of these? Do they have real versatility or are they specialty discs?

I'm in that school, too. Either a new flattish Roc, or on to a powered down Eagle or PD.

Do you find the domey KC Pros more overstable than a flatter one?

i love to throw the demon and gator, but they never find a way into the bag because i can never find use for them unless there is a ton of headwind. i usually back down on TBs, FBs, or Maxs to get the same shot

Yes and I don't like flat rocs.

I know a few guys who use cros very effectively in this spot also. I never really got into the cro b/c it suits a different throwing style than mine but it is a quality disc and a good one to use if you pair it with another beadless mid that is stable or understable.

I love my flat roc..it owns any line I put it on. But I can depend on domey kc to be slightly overstable and better in wind.

flat top rocs = squirrelly once they beat in.

I have no idea why that is but man is it true.
