Either light weights (fission), a solid mold (streamline), or a sharper rim wide diameter driver (Stalker).

I often wonder how an Axis top would do on a Vertex bottom... or the Vector with the Vertex/Spin shaped underrim.
I don't think it's as much gyro as much as it is lack of glide. The Comet has curves that I think may be hard to replicate due to the overmold. I don't have a axis or tanget on hand to compare, but if memory serves me correctly, the overmold forces a sharper curve at the join.

Comets are pretty rim heavy anyway. They sorta have a lid like weight profile.
