Is the Meteor not a beadless Comet? Maybe I am remembering wrong.

The Meteor is considerably faster with a more driver-shaped rim. I wouldn't really consider them to be similar.

The meteor has a flattish wing, the comet is concave

Let’s just make everything in glow championish plastic. Gummy stuff. How about something really understable. Not flippy, just a nice long turnover disc. Like a beat teebird.

No gummy lids. A lid should be medium to firm plastic. They need to hold their shape to get that amazing glide.

....And that flight is what a DX Polecat is.

I was hoping something would come out of this. In my opinion it might be better to just make something like a larger diameter Polecat that is a touch shallower. It wouldn't have to be the best flying disc of all time, but if it has good glide and a fair amount of stability(as in straight with no fade) I could see people using it.

If a disc can be made that people like then there might be enough money made to cover the cost of making some different discs that need more testing and tweaks to get right.

I think a wraith type driver would be awesome just cause is so versatile. My other thought was a small diameter mid like a kaxe but a bit more os

I like the idea of a driving putter that is slightly overstable - a go-to approach/driving putter - I have the specs and drawings but mainly its a pipe dream - if anyone actually has means to go about designing a disc let me know - I am interested - quite a bit
