Default DX Wolf Equivalent in softer plastic?

Absolutely love my Dx Wolf. It's my main go to for anhyzer (rhbh) shots of 150-280 for dog leg rights. It glides it's anhyzer path all the way to the end. What would be an equivalent in this disc in something softer like champion or star? Mid range and drivers?

Tried both for this purpose.

The Monarch has a place in my bag for other purposes, but even it has a predictable fade to the left on a long anhyzer, or becomes a roller on a short one.

For a midrange disc, I really like the Innova Stingray for those types of shots. I actually used to use a wolf, but I replaced it with a stingray after a while. For a driver capable of flipping like that I'd recommend trying the roadrunner out. I can flip my brother's RR pretty easily and it generally holds very well. The stingray still comes in star, and the roadrunner comes in champ and star.

Beaten Roc (or a beaten version of whatever midrange you like) would work just fine. Lately I've been messing around with DX Cobras for midrange anzhyer/turnover shots...it's pretty speed sensitive, so you can easily control how much it turns, how quickly it turns, and at what point in the flight it turns.

I think you would need to beat that Comet like a red-headed step child to get it to turn like a Wolf.

Actually the X Comets do beat up fairly quickly. The ESP Comets, not so much. If you can get your hands on a Z Comet it is actually a bit overstable and will stay that way for a long time.

At any rate, I agree that a seasoned X Comet is a good choice for a mid-range anhyzer shot, but the original question references a Wolf. I think even an X Comet would need a complete thrashing before it turned like a Wolf. A Wolf is a REALLY flippy disc.
