    Super saturated (more) mid forward grime- looking at faster runs with some definition(within a fuzz context..) heavy but with a less wooly attack?
    Musket?
    Tall font Russian?
    Other?

    Sounds like the maybe the Wren & Cuff Pickle Pie B might be suited to you.

    Would a blue beard fit in here?

    The Bluebeard is slow and heavy, also I wouldn't call it mid forward.

    I second the Pickle Pie B suggestion, I never should've sold that pedal.

    I own the musket and ppb. it depends on the bass I use for my fuzz choice. the musket loves passive basses. the musket gets along with my stingray but the ppb is better...

    The Musket would be my choice. I've owned a lot of Muffs and it's the only one that I still have.

    For the tone you described, have you considered a distortion instead? Something rat based? Or for pure awesomeness the Brimstone XD-1? Its a little spendy and large, but you get a really versatile pedal that can do a lot of different things and do them very well.

    A TFR has ended my search for fuzz (for now...) but it's not at all "mid-forward." Maybe a Brassmaster type is what you want. Like B:Assmaster, Diabolik, Black Cat Bass Octave Fuzz etc.

    Don't forget the Eau Claire Thunder. I thought it was much heavier and more flexible than the TFR. The TFR does the muff sound brilliantly, but doesn't offer much more in terms of flexibility. The ECT covers a lot of ground and can get amazingly loud.

    You should check out the Fuzzrocious stuff! Sounds like a Grey Stache or a Rat Tail would be great for what you're looking for.

    Earthbound Audio Supercollider. Nastiest muff I've had the pleasure of crushing peoples' heads with.
