Default Overstable Mids

Whats up everyone. I need to pick your brains. So I recently started carrying a Z Wasp and a TI Wasp. Great discs but I thought they would be more overstable. I can drive with both to about 275-300 and they just stay straight with minimal fade. I looked up the Drone and people say its a meat hook. I came across a Hornet Vs. Wasp thread that was not very helpful. Someone did describe the Hornet as an overstable Buzzz which sounds great. I do perfer shallow rimmed mids which is why I love the Buzzz. I guess I want to know if there is any truth to that. I am open to other manufactures but it needs to be a shallow rimmed disc. Thanks

use your jokeri.

seriously though; my jokeri and pain do have quite a bit of overlap. i don't know a whole lot about the many, many mids out there, but it works as a good tweener disc for me. it could probably cover your os mid slot like it does on a lot of shots for me. just a thought!

Gator, Drone or Tensor. What ever you get I recommend your overstable discs in a Z/Champ type plastic.

Also consider the trident, or small stiletto if you prefer.

The question is.... Do you have bad form causing your wasp to turn over easily? Also, weight of the wasp? And is it flat?

I have a really stable wasp, but I've also came across some super domey and not so stable wasps. Drone is a beefy mid, I don't feel the hornet is any more overstable than a flat wasp, but that's just me.

Had a FLX Drone for many years and it does a great job at being overstable. They tend to do crashing meat hooks for landings. For the past year I have been using the an ESP Zone for those shots and it has been working out great. Shallower than the Drone and the rim has a more comfortable feel in the hand, for myself. This may be classified as a putter, but definitely does the job of a mid and that's how I use mine.

Are you looking for a meathook? Try the ESP Zone. If you want a longer very OS mid/fairway, you could go with the Opto Trident.

If you want straighter, with a dependable fade, the MVP Tensor might be up your alley.

I recently posted a thread.. The drone is the most OS.. I picked the Vector because it's perfect for the slot.. Others say the Tensor, Hornet, and Gator..

Prodigy M1 is pretty beefy. Nice grippy plastic too.

The most overstable mid I've ever tried (and I have pretty much all the overstable mids) is the Gateway Demon in Evolution plastic. That and the Zone are the only ones I can rely on for forehand.

If you really need low profile though, get a Zone. Cryztal plastic if you can find it.
