Glad to see we're thinking along the same lines regarding the Rocs/Comet/Wolf.
I too thought about the Reaper as an overstable disc. I'm borrowing a Z Reaper from a friend just to try it out, but I don't think I'll keep it. It is fairly beat, but I can easily hyzer-flip it and get some pretty good D out of it, so I'm rather hesitant to throw it into a strong headwind; which is why I'd be carrying it in the first place.
Blake recommended the Predator instead, saying that the Pred is just a better disc overall. I'll let him explain the specifics, (since I'm sure he can do a better job than I can) or you can check out the reviews on the main site if you haven't already. He suggested getting a Pred in Z for knife hyzers, skip shots, thumber/tommys and trick shots; and one in X for headwind drives and longer hyzers.
I just recently got an X Pred (still haven't gotten a Z), and I haven't thrown it yet. I'm not sure how far I'll really be able to throw it, but as long as it does it's job and doesn't flip into the wind, I'm willing to sacrifice a little distance. That's really the only time I'll be throwing it anyway...when there's enough of a headwind that accuracy (i.e. not flipping) is more important than distance.
