My vote is for an Obex. They are straight, slightly overstable, are super durable, and basically just do everything you'd want a mid to do. I know that wasn't one of your original choices, but I think they are similar enough, and better enough, to a Roc to mention them.

Depends on the Ti Buzzz, mine was understable out of the box. Not quite Supercolor Buzzz but nothing like a properly stable Z either.


I saw 4 Ti Buzzzes at the store and only one had less concavity of the wing and a lower shoulder than Zs. The three others were like Zs in shape and i got one of those.

Obex is straight only for a while the fade is pretty pronounced when powered down or thrown high. It seems shorter than my R-Pro Roc on a tee with no run up space. It seemed to max out at 10' less than Rocs in field practice with a full run up. At 300' Obex fades around 20-26' depending on height.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Thanks for the info!
Seems like I will try either the Buzz or the flat C-MD2. Because the flat MD2s seem rare here I might go the Z-Buzz route, anyone try to convince me othervise?

Get them if you can find them, otherwise go with Buzzzes.
