Default Glide vs. Meteor

What are some of the differences between the two? All I can really see after looking at them both is that the Glide is a tad bit faster. But I'd like to learn a lil more about them before I make the choice of which disc to buy. Thanks

I own both and for some reason can't get used to the Glide. For me actually it doesn't glide whatsoever. Its strange. I have tried to like it but everytime I take it out for a round I hate it.

The meteor on the other hand is a magical disc. It holds lines really well and glides forever. It goes as far as my drivers sometimes. I use it for dead straight shots or turnover shots. It usually holds its line all the way to the end with no fade unless you get it up too high or have the nose up too much. Its a staple in my bag.

See, I'm the exact opposite with the Glide. It does exactly what I want it to. I often find myself underthrowing midranges and the glide gets me more distance because of my light throws and usually parks for nice, easy putts. I have heard alot of top pros use meteors though. I say get both

I'm with climbingbubba, love my Meteor, but can't get comfortable with the Glide. I think the Glide is more sensitive to my technique flaws while the Meteor is much more forgiving.

Glide needs some good snap and you will get results! They are both similar, but if I try to crush my meteor for me I get a heavy anheyzer were the glide just takes off!

The meteor is a great disc. I've fooled around with a lot of understable midrange discs (panther, stingray, OOP Breeze, Kite, and all that good stuff) and the meteor has prooven itself.
