If Prodiscus STARi is too new then try Phantom+ or Wham-O 91. These babies will turn.

The Fuse and Tursas I have limited experience with but turn slow and do well. I do think they fly faster than the Comet so there's a minimum power to get them to turn, where the Comet is really easy to power down and throw with a putter style flight.

I would really look for a flatter Comet as has been mentioned in this thread a few times. My X with shoulder still is only a -0.5 turn after nearly 2 years, and was a firm 0 for a long time...flat ones even in ESP or Z are significantly less stable and I can get them to glide right from a slight hyzer release. If you already like the Comet, a flatter one is definitely a bit of a different flight shape if you are looking for these subtleties. If you are a clean enough thrower to find the Comet doesn't turn enough, I do think you'll enjoy a less stable shaped one.

Could be the dome. I figured that it was the PLH molding up different because of Goldline losing its firmness, but you seem to have thrown the mold more than me. I will take your word for it.
The 'new' Fuse I have is both speed and nose angle sensitive though.

Categorically, I would call the Comets stable, but yes, I see what you are saying. I was responding to someone categorically calling Comets understable.

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.
where do you find a proD comet

hmm. I suppose I haven't owned a Gold Line fuse that wasn't firm. Even my brand new pair (with the new GL stamp) aren't too soft. Feel more or less like my old GLs, just domier.

Could be a mixture of both the dome and plastic molding up with different part lines as you indicate.

I've never thrown a Tursas but think it might work. Maybe an MVP Spin?

Get some cheapo DX Rocs and rapid season one as needed. Toy with them and torque them. New stock Rancho fine, nothing fancy needed. If you are tossing Comets, adding Rocs to your field bag and as a carry disc should be pretty smooth with similar rims and bead. Will not come out of the hand much different.

Even X comets take a long while to get a big shift between newish and beat.
