I've been beating in a Fission Reactor for a little bit now, and boy is it really nice. The Reactor has to be the most comfortable midrange I've ever thrown. They're straight to fade out of the box, but this one is starting to finish straight, and it's amazing.

I tried a few slightly understable mids that held hyzer angles pretty well, but they really didn't handle any power. Picked up a Mako3 and it's been great so far. A surprising amount of HSS when put on a slight hyzer, and throw flat it drifts right (rhbh) and finishes straight. So far so good.

The neutral mid is a slot that I rotate different molds in and out of my bag frequently. Mako3, Wombat3, Roc3 in Pro, Panther, Comet. Without question my favorite slot to throw. I don't get tired of a mold but I miss throwing them and put them in the bag so I can watch their pretty flights.

With that said the Mako3 gets the most bag time. It is wonderfully shapeable, forgiving, and has good glide. Also the Mako3 is a fantastic forehand disc for step-out turnovers.

Lately the Wombat3 has been getting some air time. One in champion and one in DX. They have more left to right play but I can still make them go straight. I can throw them softer than a Mako3 and get more D which is really fun.

It's the Buzzz SS for me all day! I kinda forgot about it for a little while when I was experimenting with the extremes (super OS and super US) but have come back to my senses and realize the neutral discs are much more controllable for me on most shots. We have an elevated tee, 394' par 3 with a left to right cross wind at my local course and I really like launching one of these backhand high left and watching it turnover slowly as it keeps pushing. I can stretch this shot to about 340-360.

Claymore all day. It would be the last mid to leave the bag if I was only allowed a certain number of discs. Very comfortable and so versatile.

Envy. I would have said Buzzz back in the day, but the Envy goes almost as far and I trust it more. Proton for a little fade at the finish, beat Neutron or new Prism Plasma for a true neutral flight. I still have a Bell's Brewery stamped Buzzz I pull out on ace runs because I really want an ace on that particular disc, but if I really want to score the mids stay in the bag.

Destroyer. Goes just as far as my mids.

Z Buzzz for me. Actually, I prefer relatively fresh. I'm currently on vacation with a 3-disc vacation bag that is:
- fresh flat Z Buzzz
- mildly worn domier Z Buzzz
- Undertaker

Many of the other options are better "neutral" mids, but the Buzzz is what I chose because there's no better disc for me to forehand and also throw multiple backhand lines. This has been especially good because I've been playing in some open courses and some decent wind.

Idk if I answered this earlier in the thread, but count me as another vote for the Axiom Hex. That thing is amazing.

But to be fair, if I could have figured out how to get a clean FH release on a Roc, I'd still be tossing Roc - Comet.
