XXX is a meathook and long in overhands

Jr; I had hoped you would stop in and drop a thought or two, I keep meaning to take some quality footage and let you guys critique me. I know that would help me improve by leaps and bounds. Now, as to your comment; the above quote was my initial reason for bagging the XXX. I understood it to be a meat-hook, much more so than either my most stable PD and Pred. I also use it when I "attempt" an overhand, and occasionally for sidearms. The problem is my overhand form feels very shoddy and I am not quite sure of the fundamentals when it comes to it. I played short stop for years but it doesn't feel like a baseman's throw to me.
The Fuse is a permanent part of my bag. Although I do not pull it out as often as I may should, I have found that it plays a role no other disc does. The glide is just incredible, I have put it on long down hill annies and it just appears to float as if on a cloud. The disc is phenomenal. I keep hearing that I should consider a Squall also in this slot, and that it is also a one-of-a-kind.
As far as my "wind handling mid" I consider my Hornet to be this disc. I have thrown the Drone and Zone both and find neither to feel that great in the hand comparatively. Now, I will say that I have considered a Whippet here and have had some strong urges to try it out, but you also mention a Gator. Are their better plastics (of course faster) to try for these? Possibly the Glo (is Glow for Innova similar to DC? More overstable consistently)?
Mike; I posted a dialogue that I had with Jubu concerning the wearing stages of discs, and truly believe that I have to experience an actually worn disc. I just dont believe that in less than a year of play one can understand plastic progression via seasoning. I do not make a habit of hitting trees, and am pretty dang accurate as long as I remain smooth and keep my footwork in line. My range suffers, but I consider Iron golf to be good golf (par is par). I try to focus more on my putting over all.
Do you think a Predator might fill the role of a HW disc more consistently than a CFR PD or high PLH PD? I could always phase these out and just throw them in worn C-line and S-line. Keep the XXX for utility along with the Fuse. I am glad to hear that the River plays a unique role, I have enjoyed this disc.
I know that you guys probably hear lots of individuals state that they want to progress to a Pro level, but I have every intention of doing this. I have always been very rigorous and disciplined in my training and have competed in Martial Arts at National and States levels multiple times and placed in the top 10, and as high as 1st (I am a form guy, not as much a point spar'r). I trained to my 3rd degree before life became an issue, but have found that Discgolf strongly fills the role that Tae Kwon Do, Soccer, and Baseball use to play for me up until college. I really believe that a strong fundamental bag is a great place to start, I think there and knowing the fundamentals of form and applying them on the field.
Anyways, thanks a ton for all the feed back so far.
I can't imagine how you can throw a Predator comfortably 400', yet only throw your mids 300'. A Pred should only go 20-30' farther than your Buzzz...I'm just wondering because I would have to really muscle a Pred on a steep anny and a huge S turn to get 400', yet I can throw a Buzzz close to 300' from a standstill.
Anyway, my overall advice at this point would be to make some decisions and drop some molds so that you are learning to manipulate your angles of release a bit more...I'm trying to figure out exactly what kind of power you have, but reading your posts it is somewhat confusing.
drop some molds
