Are there other discs like the meteor?

Hey folks, I bought a meteor recently and I love it. I am wondering if there are other discs that have a similar flight pattern? I love that I can throw it RHBH and get a flick type flight out of it. But I am looking for other options that are similar, maybe even distance driver that does something similar or just other mid range / fairway drivers.

Out of curiosity, what is a "flick type flight?"

Methinks he discovered why understable discs are useful.

OP: lots of discs out there that are understable mids. Tangent, Fuse, Stingray...The list goes on. Are you looking to replace the Meteor or just asking for general knowledge?

Backhand anny

*OP-I use an X Comet for those types of shots but a Stingray is great. Fuses and Tangents wish they were those discs.

I also throw two meteors, it is simply a fairly fast and understable midrange. You'll get the same flight out of a looot of different molds if they are worn in to a similar level of understability. M4s are usually very close in speed and stability to a meteor.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Sorry, fast no, understable yes. Meteors fly fairly slow for a mid, but with a lot of glide. They're also somewhat unique as mids go, so no, you won't get "the same flight" out of "different molds when worn in".

Ted, really, where are you coming up with this stuff? It makes one wonder if you actually throw the discs you comment on.(see other threads)

Eh. From my experience with the Meteor, although it has a lot of glide it is also very fast. Sometimes, I think the Meteor might be faster than my Buzzz.

Also, although the Meteor is good, I believe that kind of shot can be accomplished by many other midranges, including a worn in M4. Personally, I think the Tursas is very similar to a Meteor.

Why don't you just offer your own viewpoint instead of attacking Ted's? I might not agree with what someone posts, but that's no reason to question their honesty. Instead, I just accept that their experience differed from mine.
