I didn't read all the posts in here but they all better be saying "yes Frank is right. The Ontario Roc is the most similar. I completely agree and don't suggest any other disc".

I agree with Frank.

However, JR the new champ stingray I have is not flippy. In fact it is stable and very buzzz like.

The Comet was Discraft's answer to the Ontario Roc. so Ontario Roc.

Shark might be pretty close but slightly more stable.

so then the S-MD1 would be fairly similar as well then? I think the MD2 is a faster disc with comet like flight. More speed instead of glide though.

I've only thrown DX and Star and if you meant Super Stingray then i agree.
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.

A good MD2 is like the power thrower's version of the finesse thrower's Comet. A nicely seasoned D-MD2 can also handle the finesse part, and really isn't that far off.

The MD1 and Shark both have too much fade though, and most MD1's I've thrown have been a closer to Rocs than Sharks.

If we expand to anything Innova-molded, where does the Aurora MS fall in this conversation?

Aurora MS is nowadays a straight rimmed old mold MD2. Has the same wing as the current MD2, the sharper nose (due to the different top) of the old MD2, and lacks the slight slant. So very much an MD2 with a bit less HSS overall, and especially in the wind. Out of the ones I've tested the 180 Auroras were less HSS than 170 D-MD2's, both out of the box.
