Disc golf is a challenging sport. Between simply throwing your disc accurately, the distance needed to get to each basket, and the tough approach shots and putts, everything we do in disc golf requires skill and patience. It also requires something else – a good, stable mid-range at the core of our game. Something that is ultra-reliable, deadly accurate, and capable of handling any shot at any time on the course. A disc that we can depend on to hit the line and keep it.
Basically, you’re looking for the best, stable mid-range that you can find. And that’s why I’ve brought you this list. I’ve researched and found you the 13 best stable mid-range discs in the game and put them all together on this one list. So let’s check ’em out!
The 13 best stable mid-range discs
1. Discraft Buzzz
2. Innova Mako3
3. Dynamic Discs Truth
4. Westside Discs Warship
5. Latitude 64 Compass
6. MVP Axis
7. Infinite Discs Chariot
8. Latitude 64 Claymore
9. Prodigy M3
10. Kastaplast Kaxe Z
11. Innova Atlas
12. Discmania MD
13. Axiom Alias
What is stability?
Stability is a disc’s tendency to turn over to the right, fly straight, or fade to the left, during the beginning of flight (For rhbh throws). Discs, when released, will fly according to how stable, understable, overstable they are.
Stable: discs will usually fly straight when released flat.
Understable: discs will turn over to the right when released flat.
Overstable: discs will usually fade more to the left at the beginning of flight when released flat.
Stability is simply how a disc immediately flies after it is released from the throwers hand straight and flat. The level of stability in a disc will determine if it is going to turn to the right right away, fly straight through the whole flight, or fade to the left early on in the disc’s flight.
And this is determined by each individual disc. The cool thing is that every single disc has a unique set of personality characteristics called flight ratings. That means each and every disc is unique. Each disc flies based on speed, glide, turn, and fade. See more about flight ratings here in our flight ratings guide. The stability of a disc is affected by the 3rd flight rating, or the high-speed turn of a disc and somewhat by the 4th flight rating, or the fade of a disc.
So this post will focus on stable discs, or those that should fly straight after being thrown flat.

The 13 best stable midrange discs
Our #1 Pick – Discraft Buzzz (5, 4, -1, 1)
The Buzzz is the truly the king. It is hands down one of the most popular discs ever made and is bagged by the majority of disc golfers. Looking at this list, you may already have a Buzzz (even if you’re a beginner). If you don’t have a Buzzz, you need to get one of these discs. They’re awesome in feel and flight. They fly super straight, hold almost any line, and can be relied upon in just about every scenario on the course. You can grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.

2. Innova Mako3 (5, 4, 0, 0)
The Mako3 is one of those underrated yet awesome discs that is just so good on the course. First off, the Mako3 is a super straight flier. I would say even better than the original Innova Mako. The versatility of the Mako3 is also pretty top notch. It’s very workable and will definitely become the workhorse in your bag if you start throwing it. Grab a Mako3 here on Discgolfunited.com.
3. Dynamic Discs Truth (5, 5, -1, 1)
I’m a huge fan of the truth. It’s the less stable version of the popular EMac Truth but that doesn’t make it any less crucial to your disc golf game. InfiniteDiscs.com states that “the Truth will hold an anhyzer line and fly just as expected every time.” The original Truth is a perfect starting point for a mid-range disc and the more overstable EMac Truth can be the next step up (if you so choose). Grab a Dynamic Discs Truth here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
4. Westside Discs Warship (6, 5, 0, 1)
The Warship is one of the faster flying discs on this list…and it can get you some serious distance for just being a mid-range. I would even call the Warship a hybrid kind of disc – hybrid between a mid-range and a control driver with the distance it gets from the decent amount of glide it shows you. Overall, a very long mid-range that can get you 20-30 more feet than most mid-range discs out there today. Get a Warship here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
5. Latitude 64 Compass (5, 5, 0, 1)
The Compass is a nice mid-range that can do just about everything. When it comes to the different types of shots, the Compass has the potential to be a true multi-tool in your bag. For those who love the Buzzz, this disc is similar in flight pattern but will offer just a little bit more stability. BUT it’s still a very straight flier that will show you how much it can be trusted for just about everything. Grab a Compass here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
6. MVP Axis (5, 5, -1, 1)
The MVP Axis is a very straight-stable disc golf disc. It has very nice speed and an awesome amount of glide. That mixed with just a bit of turn and fade makes for one straight throw toward the basket. A lot of disc golfers have raved about how this disc has pushed their Buzzz or their Roc right out of their bags, as it’s just an overall great disc. Get one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
7. Infinite Discs Chariot (5, 5, 0, 1)
I’ve enjoyed the Chariot so far. It’s a very reliable and predictable mid-range disc. The Chariot is a fairly straight flier with just a little bit of fade on the end. It will hold a hyzer pretty well through flight. But will fight you with your anhyzer and will want to straighten out. If you like the Mako3, you’ll like the Chariot and love how it flies for you. Grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
8. Latitude 64 Claymore (5, 5, -1, 1)
Two Lat 64 discs on one list, huh? Guess they’ve been stepping it up a bit there at the Lat 64 factory. The Claymore is a little bit more understable than the Compass, so you’ve got the choice between either as far as stable mid-range discs go. Compass is more stable. Claymore is less stable. Both are great discs. So why not get both? Grab the Claymore here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
9. Prodigy M3 (5, 5, -1, 2)
The M3 is a really awesome mid-range and a bit more overstable than most of the discs on this list (even with just a little bit more turn). Here’s what InfiniteDiscs.com has to say about it: “The Prodigy M3 is a domey, stable midrange that flys with incredible consistency and control. This disc is said to be good in all wind conditions and flies as well into the wind as it does with the wind.” Grab yours here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
10. Kastaplast Kaxe Z (6, 5, 0, 2)
The Kaxe Z is the most overstable discs on this list. But it still flies straight as an arrow just as you would expect it to. Overall, the Kaxe Z is a really good, stable mid-range. I mean, predictable flight, slim proportions, and decent stability. What more could you ask for from a disc? Grab yours here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
11. Innova Atlas (5, 5, 0, 1)
The Innova Atlas is one of my all-time favorite discs and is definitely a fantastic straight-stable mid-range. Although I haven’t sunk an ace with this disc yet, I’ve gotten unbelievably close on a ton of different shots. It’s reliable, accurate, and capable of taking care of almost any shot on the course. That’s what you need in a good mid-range. Grab one here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
12. Discmania MD (4, 5, 0, 0)
The MD is said to be the “ultimate control” mid-range. Discmania states that, “the MD is the numberless child of the Discmania midrange family. This icon of neutrality has a convex wing that makes it feel right at home in your grip. The MD has high glide even at the end of the flight, so the fade 0 is no exaggeration. Compared to many other midranges the MD is super straight even at the very end of the flight. The MD is an excellent choice if you are intimidated by tunnel shots. Pick one up and you can stop worrying on the teepad.” Get yours here on InfiniteDiscs.com.
13. Axiom Alias (4, 4, -1, 1)
I wouldn’t call the Alias one of the best discs in disc golf, but it is one of the best stable mid-range discs in the game today. Infinite Discs describes this disc as describe it as the “close brother to the popular MVP Tangent.” The Alias, though, is more stable than the Tangent. So if your a Tangent fan, check out the Alias here InfiniteDiscs.com.
A good straight-stable mid-range is an absolute necessity for your disc golf game. You want reliability, predictability, and the accuracy that these stable discs give to you. Not just that, but they should be the core of your disc golf game. So hopefully you’ve been able to find one or two from this list to help complement the rest of the discs you use on the course. The 13 discs included in this list are some of the most popular stable mid-range discs in the game and can help you absolutely crush it on the course!
