Default Overstable Mid

I did a search for "overstable mid" and found a bunch of info but I guess I want something more specific to me.

I have 2 mids right now, a beat to hell comet and an gateway element. I find that the comet is fairly understable and the element goes pretty straight. I am looking for something more overstable. I used to have a 12x KC pro roc but lost it. Should I try another roc or something else? I don't care at all what brand it is.

Get a Z Hornet , and you will be very happy. I use it for all my overstable mid shots. It flies like an overstable Buzz

Another Roc would be a great compliment to the mids you already carry.

I use a Wasp to go with my Comet collection...very similar feel in the hand
I found the Hornet to be REALLY overstable and I think all things being equal...
using the same arm speed that you use to throw your comet and element to do what they do... the wasp would be a better fit.

I agree with the OP about the Comet's understability.

All my mids are Discraft, and I have to agree with RichMeade; Comet, Buzzz, Wasp covers a lot of territory quite nicely. All are very predictable fliers.

That being said... can't knock the Roc, but there seem to be about 20 different versions of 'em.
If you found one you like, get another, if possible

A wasp or a rancho roc (kc pro or dx) would be fine for most mid shots where you need stability. Anything where you really need a meathook it's probably more consistent to power down on an overstable driver anyway.
