I have a pretty stable comet, Would it be worth trying this out?

Well, a comet is a 4/5/-2/1. Whereas, the archer is a 6/5/-3/1. So, a relatively OS comet probably wouldnt have a line similar to the archer, if thats what you mean.

There's no such thing.

Has anyone thrown the Z's yet? How are they flying? More or less stable than the ESPs?

A Comet does not have a -2 turn.

Default Z archer

Hello, to all of the people wanting to know about the Z archers, here is my 2 cents.

I bought 2 176g red first runs when they first came out and let me say if you love hyzer flip discs this is it. I own a 177g esp meteor also which flies and feels similar, however the meteor (pink colored) can take waaaaaaaay more snap before it turns over. I can throw my meteor with a 15-20 degree at 75% power on a hyzer release and it will flip up flat and ride, or if I really over power it it will flip up, turn over and fade right at the end for a soft landing. The archer is much more of a finesse disc and holds turn overs better with much less effort. For example I played a tournament a few weeks ago and there is a roughly 400+ ft dog leg right shot on high elevation. I released this disc at a 15 degree hyzer angle and threw maybe half speed and it gently flipped up and turned over all the way to ground, however it did flatten out right at the end to have a soft skip about 25 ft from the basket. (I use this shot because my side arm is more than a joke). I am not a power thrower, but if I throw at full speed I have to throw it with a 70 degree hyzer release or it will just turn right over. I am not a great roller thrower but these are amazing for that! These are also money for controlled hyzer flip tunnel shots. I can't really compare it to a DC glide atm because the only one I have ever thrown was reaaaaallly old and broken in over maybe 6 years. I really like the archers to say the least, it really helps me to throw more controlled instead of full throttle all the time. These could be huge distance getters if you throw them high enough to glide to their intended target. Monsters on downhill shots too! I hope this helps.

Cheers.
