kern if you dont think the fuse is understable, could you give an example of a mid thats "truly" understable?


I'm not saying its not understable, but its not near as understable as you're making it out to be. You still shouldn't have any trouble whatsoever getting it to fly straight for good midrange distance. Getting it to hold a hyzer isn't as easy either, but it is very capable of doing that as well.

FWIW, I throw a max weight and a 173 opto.

From what I've seen they're definitely understable, but don't need that much hyzer for around 300' throws. Don't own any personally but when I get to try them out I usually throw them with too much hyzer due to expecting them to fly more understable.

The GoldLine are much more understable. I own one of each (176) and the Opto is an incredibly straight shooter but the GL almost always goes right out of a hyzer unless thrown softly.

i have a 169 gl in my bag and its one of the more understable fuses ive thrown. but ive thrown heavy gl and light and heavy opto as well. theyre pretty damn similar.

come to think of it i cant think of a primo plastic mid thats more understable than the fuse. the cool thing about them, though, is that they flip x degrees and then stay there, not flipping more and not fighting out of the angle they lock into.

I have two goldlines. 179 and 180. Both fly pretty much just like my optos do, maybe a tad less fade when I get them up in the air. I'd imagine that they beat in and lose stability quicker than the opto though.

A near flat throw with some nose up will get the Fuse flying laser straight over 300'. It flies such smooth anhyzer and turnover lines, but tweak it a little and you've got that magical straight shot with no fade.

Funny, the GLs I've tried were just as stable as the Optos I've tried.

if youre throwing a fuse for flat, straight shots at 300', you have some serious disc selection issues.

you were thinking "hey...i can get this disc to fly straight for 300'!" you should have been thinking "i can get many discs out to 300'...which one is the best tool for the job?"

then you wouldve picked out your comet and nailed the shot.

All the Comets I've thrown were more understable than my Fuses. My 179 GL is basically a reborn CE QMS and my 177 Opto that's very seasoned is easy hyzer flip straight. They lock onto lines better than any mid I've thrown.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.
