Comet, Roc, Leopard, Teebird are proven molds that compliment each other nicely. I have no experience with your others but I'd say you have a solid bag to learn the sport. Wish I had focused on a core line up a little more when I was getting started.

I'm an older guy as well. 18 months in and making slow, steady progress. Kinda doubt either of us will ever be crushing Destroyers 500' though.

Good bag (except the Comet, of course ).

There are 2 holes where the flight of the Comet, if throw around 60%, is perfect. Goes straight a little ways on a low line and then slowly fades hugging the trees that line the fairway.

Yeah, I'm just messin' with ya (and all Comet lovers) about the Comet. If you like it, have fun with it.

Had a chance to play a longer more wide open course today for the first time...did not expect the Stratus to come in very handy because of the openness of the course (very few trees, a hand full on each hole, nothing like the 80 per hole on the other two courses I have played). Boy was I wrong! The few trees per hole on the course were very well placed. Several times I needed a straight shot with a slight right turn at the end with my RHBH...the Stratus was money! Definitely a savior for this RHBH only player. Thought about trying out a Meteor but I think I'll stick with the Stratus after seeing what it did for me today!!!

Just a quick question: my Stratus is 166g. I ordered it that way thinking maybe the right turn would happen easier with my slower arm speed if I went with a lighter weight. I'm wondering now if I should have went heavier for stopping power around the target....what would going up to a 175g Stratus do to the flight of the Stratus compared to my 166g?

Thanks again for all the input about this disc....other than my Leo3 this may just be my favorite disc in the bag!
