Default MVP midrange setup?

I was going to post this in the MVP thread, but felt like it could get lost in the shuffle pretty quickly in there.

Do any of you MVP users have input on which remaining MVP mid better fits between the Tensor and the Tangent? I was curious a) because it seems like a lot of people who rock MVP use three of their mids, and b) I've been finding a few shots (mostly notably shorter flex shots) that my Tensor is a little too OS to reliably pull off but wouldn't really work with the Tangent.

Beyond my needs specifically, I'd just be curious to hear various thoughts on an MVP midrange lineup.

either a beat vector or a proton/domey axis.

I threw domey FR vectors before the tensor and super beat flat N axis before tangent. Now proton tangent, super beat N tangent and tensor with occasional addition of the either above depending on course/wind.

Probably a well seasoned Vector would be my guess.

all of my mids are mvp, and i use everything but axes.

the vector is the best midrange ever made period. its a roc with an overmold. i only use tensors because they fly like vectors when theres a headwind, and my bagged vectors are beat. the tangent is the perfect neutral mid, but i seem to only use it for 400 foot tailwind shots, i should throw it more.

honestly i could throw a vector and ion and cover every shot i need ever. im shocked it isnt a more popular mold.

Flat n vector skip the axis. It's longer than a tensor and the fade is not so abrupt. It holds a nice long straight line and laughs at wind.

vector vs axis is like ion vs anode.

super discs but find one that works for you really no need for all 4 molds in the bag.

Out of those four, the Axis is my least favorite. I throw more forehand than backhand, so I tend to favor slightly overstable (vector) more than slightly understable (axis)

I'm still in the figuring out which ones work for me. Right now my mid line up from OS to US is the following.

Vector
Domey Axis
Flat Axis
Tangent
Fuse

I could get by with just the Vector and the Tangent but I just love the way the Axis flies and the Fuse turns harder corners than the Tangent.

For the OP question for short flex shots I'd throw my Vector or the Domey depending on how much fad back I wanted.

I rocked Vectors for a good long while, but I just can't abandon my beloved Rocs. But the Vector is awesome...sneaky long too. I ditched the Axis real quick. It didn't click with me but I've seen other players (i.e. better players) work magic with it. It's tough because MVP discs run on the pricey side.
