I always wanted a rare Crystal Meteor though, I figured that would be good...(they didn't make it in Z) now they have production run Z.. Makes me curious because of previous good times but it's no Comet, I couldn't imagine going back.

You can also get a Comet in Glow Z plastic one of my personal favorites. Nice blend and you can play in the dark!

Always copied, never duplicated.. Get one and you can become....

A Cometeer!
Comets turn too, after a while, even Z/Glow. But a little turn is good for versatility. A comet will fly in a unique way, but it will not unlock disc golf holes that any of a million other discs can't.

Yes, yes it does. Come over here, stand 2m (six feet away) and I will cut your tongue or fingers off for such blasphemy.

Sorry you forgot to capitalize unique. FTFY and added some flair, you don't have enough "flair"

I strike thee down in the name of the Cometeers !!!!!!

From Innova.

I would pick the Star Spider, DX seems to be currently oop and for discs the slightly puffy Star compared to DX will work just fine for non putting needs. The mold is basically a lower profile wider wing version of a putter being the small diameter midrange, something nice as putters fly well for straight shots.

The other for more plastic choice is the Skeeter also a putter type shape disc, a disc that is in all plastics listed on standard Innova website except R-Pro. R-Pro and Pro disappeared from the Innova midrange lineup in mid 2010's sometime.

Per the Innova website, Star Spiders are out of production. AGAIN, do not come to help new players with misinformation, it is not helpful.

My forehand is trash so I would like to learn some anhyzers, since these are very needed at our local DG course
...
Overall, my technique leaves a lot to be desired, and my hands are very small for my size (being 6 feet tall). Also, I dont have much power in my shots, but that probably comes down to the technique a lot...

Thank you very much!
There are so many options and I'm not going to try to steer you towards any particular one mold because you're clearly still getting your footing and what you like today could easily change tomorrow, but it sounds like you would benefit from a turnover shot since "My forehand is trash so I would like to learn some anhyzers"


You mention a meteor, and I think you'll like it, though I personally like the Sol better. The Sol is a tad smaller and has virtually no fade on it. Both of these discs will fly straight at really low power, and both of these will hold a decent anhyzer line at low speeds. You'll be able to hyzerflip both right away if you can get your drives up to 240 feet. Why that's good is that not only will you see the extra distance you pick up when the disc flips, you'll also get a long floating turnover (the big right turn you're seeking)
You can achieve similar results with the more versatile comet (like others have noted) but the comet also comes with a sharp bead (dealbreaker for me). You can put more power behind a comet and the comet responds well. You can learn a lot from a comet. A mako3 is a laser straight disc and it holds both hyzer and anhyzer lines. I used to swear by the mako3, but as I grew into the buzzz world, I left it behind. Now I use a stable (Z-flx) and understable (seasoned elite-x) buzzz combination for low to medium straight line shots and medium hyzer/anhyzer lines. For low speed anny lines and turnovers though, I still love my sol.

Well in that case the Spider is completely out of production as you can't find DX either anymore.

Sorry I Made a mistake


Then I would pick just the Skeeter. It will be a good choice for Midrange.
