Westside has a great mid lineup imo. I'd start there.

I'd forgotten that I do have a Westside Bard, and it's a good mold. Having said that, I'm happy with the Hornet on that side of things. It's the understable approach/midrange that is the only unsettled place left in my bag...

Tursas is very good in that slot - beat in Warship even better.

I'm sure they're good. Right now I'm looking at my little pile of Wombat3, Cobras, Mirages, Deputys, Pures, Mako3s, and my wallet is screaming to make one of those work in the US slot. My wallet is probably right....

Yeah - one of those should do the job.

I'm digging the standstills I'm getting with the Patrol, both backhand and forehand. It's really easy to finesse so it doesn't take a ton of power to put it on the line and let it glide. A little snap and it'll roll which makes for some easy late turning shots.

Beginners should be given one at every opportunity. Learn to control your angles with an understable disc and leave those overstable discs in the bag, unless there's wind of course. Anyway, at less that 300' this disc is fun to throw.

really great disc for really elevated throws, you can get some power on it and it hugs that hill and glides straight rather than turning like it normally does. found that out yesterday

Small bump. Someone on my home course had a Patrol, and said it was very good at holding an anny with some glide. So I pulled the trigger and ordered a blue 170g Lucid Patrol (Lucid is the only plastic available at the time).

Thrown firmly but smoothly with attention to good form, my Patrol is doing very well on the dogleg-right holes on my home course. It turns over nicely and holds the anny line, especially on the downhill hole. On the uphill hole, it turns nicely to set me up for a nice second shot, but can stall out and just go straight if I throw it too high (which I tend to do at times). (Both of these holes are 210-220 ft. and in the woods).

I'll continue to work with it in various scenarios, but the Patrol does look like the possible answer to fill that fresh-out-of-the-box understable mid/long approach disc

I picked up two Evidence(s) during Infinite's Black Friday sale, and they're both pretty dead nuts straight.
