So this is more comparable to a Comet than a Buzzz?

It's not a Comet but it's also not a Buzzz.

Less sensitive than a Comet, not as torque friendly as a Buzzz.

I think a QMS would be a better comparison.

If you're sticking with Discraft it's more Meteor than Comet.

Feels more like a Meteor but I'd say the flight is more of a cross between a comet and a buzzz. They have decent HSS and are fast like a z buzzz but their LSS is closer to a z comet. I bag QMSs to complement my z buzzzes, the gauge is more stable.

It could be the feel pushing me to compare it to the Meteor, but I also never thought any of the few Meteor's I've thrown were all that flippy either. I've only thrown one FR Icon and one FR Pinnacle Gauge. When new the Pinnacle seemed to have a decent amount of HSS. As the flashing wore down, it flew more like the Icon which started turning before the flashing was even completely gone.

This is my experience as well. I only throw FR Pinnacle's now but the 164g Icon i had was the best get out of trouble disc I've bagged.

Would the gauge fit in a bag with beat protιgι ghosts, Or is this more like a wasp/buzzz (ss) combo?

Been eyeing a Gauge from the local store (via website only so far ), but which one to pick, Pinnacle or Icon, that's the question. On one hand, if I could find a really seethrough Pinnacle, might come in handy come autumn/winter when LEDs are needed, but ideally I think I'd want the more stable one, wear that down, instead of starting with a less stable one and breaking that into even less stable.
