Spider - soft champ is easier to range for me between 200-100 differences in power and still maintain both FH and BH lines with a nice little dump and stick instead of gliding past like most straight to understable putters will for me. The rim feels comfy whether going fan grip, power or two-finger FH - it's also my go-to for OH and the occasional get-out-of-shue roller.

It really is a feel thing tho. Find a disc that feels right and your mind/arm will make the adjustments if you are feeling confident in your plastic.

I agree on throwing a putter at that distance. I like the Nova personally. But I disagree on the Buzzz. IMO it's not a great disc to power down. I prefer a Fuse for this. I carry both a Fuse and Buzzz in my bag.

I just got a Comet, so it’s new to me and not beat in. Mine is Titanium plastic, and it glides remarkably far with Little power. You will overthrow if you’re used to approaching with another disc. Yesterday I tried an anhyzer turn from behind a large tree, 150’ from the basket. The line was good and I really thought it was goin in. But, then it was like the whole scale of the shot kept changing, like an optical illusion, while the Comet never started to come to the ground until it hit the trees in the ditch 25’ behind the basket. The Comet defies gravity in the last third of flight.

If you want a putter version of the Comet, a Rubber Putter by Lighting sold by Gotta Go Gotta Throw is out there. Also rather cheap for a disc.

The Spider is OOP? I am not even sure the Star, last plastic made in is still being produced.

Nope, and I'm hoping for a '3' version eventually.

So just temporarily ran out of discs during the Corona Virus stop on manufacturing. The DX is OOP though that much I know as of last year the DX plastic for the Spider got hard to find then basically gone.
