Default Understable complement to Comet

What's a good understable complement to a Comet? Criteria:

1. Slow with controllable turn, not very speed sensitive
2. Doesn't fade out much at the end

And don't say beat Comet, I'm looking for something out of the box.

Are you wanting something in a premium plastic? If not, a proD comet will get understable pretty quickly. A stratus is Discrafts classic US slow speed disc but they dont make it in premium plastic. If you want something in a premium plastic and it has to be discraft, then you have two options. A meteor, which is slightly faster mid than a comet but still pretty glidey. Or the Archer, which was the Ace Race disc 2 years ago and is touted as the premium plastic answer to the stratus. Both are rated -.5.

Personally, I would go with an Elite X Stratus. If you have a shop nearby, go feel them up and see which one you like better.

Don't care which manufacturer. I've tried the Meteor and Stratus, I'm looking for something slower.

If you can find Prodiscus Stari that should be one that fits in that category.

A Stingray or the Foxbat are but the Foxbat is a bit faster then you would like. Stingray is the disc I can think of that is like a bead less Comet.

Pretty sure the Lat 64 Fuse is the disc your looking for. It's definately understable and if my memory is correct it feels similar to a Comet.

Slower than a Stratus? Hmmmm.....I think you are looking for a putter. X Putt'r is pretty understable. I thought the Comet was the understable complement, lol.
