The Comet should be better for straight shots beyond about 170'. And with small winds from other directions than the rear quarter. The grip is friendlier with the Stratus and rollers are a matter of taste. If you need a roller from a constricted lie the Stratus is easier to get rolling.
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.

Looking at your mid line up the Z Stalker max weight recommendation in the other thread makes even more sense.

Thanks for the help everyone, I loved all the suggestions. The stalker didn't seem to have the glide the cyclone did, and the cyclone was a bit straighter. I'm still playing around with a mid range turn over disc, still tossing around the idea of keeping the comet or switching to the meteor. Any thoughts on this one?

picked up a Ti Buzzz and Stalker, both are money, never really thaught I would say that about a stalker. Even into headwinds, I am not having any problems throwing them into 15-20 headwinds. The Buzzz still goes 300-315' on the line I put it out on, and the stalker held its line out to almost 400' still haven't really pushed it yet.

Distance drivers

Z Nuke all out distance
Z Nuke OS head wind distance drives sidearm, and backhand, as well as long skip shots
Z Force x3 one that is newer and still overstable for side arm and power back hand drives, one beat to a stability comparable to a new Z surge, the last is in between

Fairway drivers
Z surge touch drives side arm and back hand
Z Flick mostly for tomahawks, some side arm
Z Pred x3 my go to driver, one newer and very stable, one beat and very flippy, and my favorite one is between new and beat, I throw them for all different kinds of shots.

Mids
Hornet short side arm and mid shots that need to finish
Buzzz x2 This disc has really grown on me and is thrown for 90% of my shots inside of 350' and sometimes out to even 400'
meteor mostly for get out of trouble stuff, but I do like it for short tunnels too

Putt and approach
Zone for side arm approaches and short spikes
Next I have two putters that I keep for actually putting.
Challengers and Magnets are what I putt with, I would like to get down to just one putter. I'm a spin putter but seem to have success with both of these putters any suggestions here?
