My local shop has these in stock now. I resisted the siren call of the sexy Kastaplast plastic.

I use those discs like hybrid irons in regular golf... but disc golfers use the term hybrid differently.

They are longer than a classic mid but they have lower cruise speeds than a fairway. To me, this is what a true hybrid is, not a speed 10 disc. If I call it a hybrid, it will confuse people even more.

I am still going with mid, because that's closer to how I use it... and it will confuse people less than calling it a hybrid.
My solution to this is simple:

Stuff between putter and mid: approach disc

Stuff between mid and fairway: tweener disc

Stuff between fairway and distance: hybrid disc

Not sure there's much of anything between mids and fairway discs. The Cheetah and Leopard are just a step up from mids in terms of speed, but are considered fairway drivers.

Some use "control" driver to describe faster (speed 9 or so) fairway-range drivers, and "fairway" driver for the slower (speed 7-ish) drivers in that arena.

Definitely a tweener. I agree its not really a mid. It is more blunt than same rim-width drivers though.

But this is the GOTE thread...

I threw 36 holes off the tee with the Gote. Absolute line holding gliding machine. It is the go to mid I have been waiting for longer than kastaplast was a company.

I think GÖTE sold better than Kastaplast expected. . the biggest online shop here in Sweden released 240pc at midnight. . . and a few minutes later the site crashed. . .but a hour later all 240pc were sold.
That made the Göte the 2nd most sold disc in 2019 for the biggest online shop in Sweden

so, to people who have thrown heavy opto fuses , how would this compare? it looks similar in the vid ive seen but id like input. the opto fuse i use is very similar in the descriptions you guys have given so far. very easy to manipulate,glides for days etc. the fuse is just slow like a putter and has very little lateral movement when thrown on a rope but can bend corners like no other mids ive thrown. i love kastaplast plastic so im intrigued by the gote

Flies like my heavy 2nd run ESP comet...the good ones with the high shoulder, or my older gummy QMS once the flashing wore off a little...it’s point and shoot with a tick of stability.

My testing is at more than 5k ft above sea level, so take that into consideration but tests of anything I compare to also is thrown at elevation.

Yes not as flippy as any fuse I have thrown. I think comet/roc hybrid is not an unfair comparison. Glides almost as much as the comet and has almost as much stability as a dx roc.

I know this is basically a DGCR wet dream when described this way, but I think it can live up to it.

Definately touchier than a roc, a few times I was trying to push it too hard and got sloppy with my toss it responded poorly to OAT.

Thrown flat and smooth up to 75% power I got zero turn. On a smooth throw up to 90% power adding a touch of hyzer was enough to keep it straight.

Maybe a half tick more high speed stable than the most stable limited esp comet almost as much glide.

I have struggled to justify a buzzz and a comet in my bag on and off for years. I really think this could be the solution, though the buzzz would do a little better in the wind, I am throwing a kaxe for those shots these days anyway.
