If like Innova and dx plastic, I would advise a Cobra.

Or just grab a KC Pro Roc since you already know how the disc feels and flies. Its a bit more durable than DX. Im sure this will turn into something like the buzzz vs roc threads, but hey try a buzzz out too in z or esp plastic.. the Buzzz is also a great mid-range and can go very far.
Thanks, but wouldn't the M4 be longer and faster? Why M3? will keep an eye out for Pro Roc's I think, there probably is some medium size/Hybrid rims out there in Rocs?

DX beats up really quick on faster drivers, but is plenty durable for mids and putters, I have a dx roc that's been in my bag for almost 5 years and it flies great.
I've used a lot of different Mids but once I started cycling DX/KC Rocs I've never gone back to any other Mids. They have good glide & distance, the Roc is the best Mid I've ever thrown. I think that DX plastic is good for Mids & Putters but I think it beats up drivers to quickly.

Why exactly are you looking for the "longest mid possible"? Mids will go a long way, but there's no issue with going to a slow driver for the shots that are out of range for your mids. What you really want is the mid that is most controllable and lets you feel comfortable shaping all the different lines you need and also will power down for certain approach shots. Any of the suggested mids will go plenty far, find the one that flies and feels the way you like.

It's the Indian, not the arrow. Discs don't have limitations people do.

After spending almost all of my time on a heavily wooded course, I started playing a course exposed to lots of wind, I took only my DX Roc the first time I went their and fell in love with the way midranges and their, blunt wings stay steady in windy play. Its a mostly shorter course, but my Roc leaves me a little short of where I want to be on some holes. If there is a longer faster midrange disc out there, I want it.
Surprised no one mentioning Atlases, but maybe those aren't widely available or thrown yet.

The 3 discs that will not leave my bag anytime soon are my DX Roc, DX Teebird and my Z Buzzz. Although, I am experimenting with a new Champ Roc3.

That's when a slow, overstable fairway driver comes in really handy. They go about midrange distance but are very wind resistant and easy to range. Whippets or Banshees fill that role nicely.
