Default Is there a beadless Comet?

I love everything about the Comet except it's bead. Is there a mid out there that flies just like the Comet but is beadless? My favorite thing about the Comet is how I can hyzer-flip it for dead straight shots in the woods. I've considered checking out a Meteor but am worried that it would be too understable and not hold dead straight lines.

Anybody know of a beadless Comet clone? I'm not interested in an X-Buzzz because I like my throwers in premium plastic so they keep their flights a long time. Not into seasoning/cycling. Also, I only consider discs made in the USA (no Trilogy).

I would give the Mako3 or Discmania MD a shot, but IMO nothing flies like a comet except a comet.

i dont feel like the comet really has a noticeable bead?

I have yet to throw something that has the flight of a new Z comet, that came that way out of the box. Ontario roc is closest, but i feel theyre a little more OS to start.
Maybe a Shark? But it would prolly be the same in good plastic, more OS than you are looking for.

C-MD1 maybe? its Discmania, but made in USA

Mako3 - a Comet that can be thrown like a Buzzz.

Mako is similar to a slightly flippy Comet. Meteor is more of a "power" disc that likes being thrown hard while a Comet is a finesse disc.

I'm a bit of a rookie, but I really don't think there's any "comet" that's not a comet. I admit I hate the feel, but I'm willing to work around it for the Comet-y goodness it provides. It sounds like you use your comet a bit differently than I do, though. I would give the Meteor a shot because it does make for some great straight shots and has great distance for a mid. I have a Glo Z Meteor that has some turn (def not flippy) but mainly just likes to go straight and would achieve the straight lines you want. But to me the flight has almost NO similarities to my Comets, which tend to need lots of height to get where they're going.

Nothing else is a Comet.
But there are plenty of beadles discs that do similar type of things. Mako3 and Axiom's Theory both come to mind, but both are smaller diameter and lack that Comet glide.
But Comets are floaty large diameter magic.
