Default Straightest Flying Mid...

Of course we all know this is not an exact science but I'm really struggling with my mid selection right now.

I'm in need of a Mid in the 172g range that will fly fairly straight with medium power.

Any suggestions?

Try out the Gateway Karma or Element

Both are low profile. Karma tends to be more overstable to stable, Element tends to be Stable to understable.

kc pro roc, or champ roc 3, elite x plastic buzz tend to be super straight at mid power. The dynamic disc truth in prime plastic is a very straight flyer too, just know its a mid that flirts with fairway driver range.

What is medium power for you? What are you throwing now? What are the flight characteristics of your current straight mid-range?

Also what disc are you throwing for mid now? Could be a form/ release issue.

I think there are loads of good answers to this question. What works best for you depends a lot on your preference for hand feel, plastic, manufacturer, etc. Do you like a deeper mid with a bead? Try a DX Roc or champ Roc3. Do you like shallower rims and more premium plastic options? Truth, Buzzz, or Compass are good choices. Do you like Gateway baseline plastics? Element. Do you like overmolds? Axis, Alias, or Atlas. There are loads more to choose from. I think just about every manufacturer has a pretty decent lineup of straight mids honestly.

Straightest mid I have ever thrown is a Comet. Beat up Roc is pretty close.

Honorable mention goes to the Tangent. Compass is a great do all mid as well.

Throwing a Compass, Tursas.

I'm looking for a mid I can throw without full power and get some decent strait shots (finesse).

I have know problem with Putters, Fairway and Drivers it's just the mids giving me a problem..

Low Power = Comet
Medium Power = Comet
High Power = Comet

Dirty form = not a Comet
