I throw midranges for shots in the 200 – 240’ range, forehand and backhand, so I don’t need anything super-understable. Ideally, I would like something that can be powered easily for touch shots, and also hyser-flipped for straight with minimal fade tunnel shots. I have tried 168-170 Z Comets (great for field work, but not yet predictable enough for scored rounds), a domey 166 X Buzzz (horrible), and a 166 ESP Meteor (too fine a line between hyser and runaway turnover).
FWIW, I have been using Z Buzzzes as my stable midrange, but after cleaning up my throw a bit I am starting to dig DX Rocs. Sounds like the Fuse would pair better with a Roc - based on Discspeed’s review, it may be too similar to the Buzzz?
Would the Fuse be a good understable complement for the Roc / Buzzz? How does it handle a moderately clean forehand throw?
Mine are 177.
The Fuse is probably the exact same stability as a Z Comet (perhaps Fuse is a touch more understable), but it is not as touchy. It compliments a Buzzz well, sort of like a Meteor, but it is not quite as understable as a Meteor. It is also slower than the Meteor with more glide, and this makes it feel a little more predictable and helps with touch shots. The Fuse is excellent at the slight hyzer flip to flat straight shot. It does not really overlap with the Buzzz because with the slow glide all of its lines shape up different except the straight shot. It would probably overlap more with the Roc, because essentially it flies like a beat Roc already. Its like a dx Roc that has been beat just enough to lose its LSS, but still retain decent HSS. However, its still glidier than the Rancho.
