Midranges vary from speeds 2 to 6 though almost all fall between speeds 4 and 6. Midranges are the widest discs on the market. Their large diameters allow them to glide for longer distances than putters and make their max distance potential higher.
The combination of low speed rating and high glide means a slow, smooth throw with most midranges will go a considerable distance. It is often recommended that beginners start playing exclusively with just midranges and putters.
