The Ask MJ & Comet Love Thread

I really think this needs it's own space. Let's bring together questions for MJ and specific Comet talk into one thread.

ps. everyone e-mail Discraft requesting a special edition fly dye esp MJ signature comet!

and, I'll go first:

I'm looking for an out of the box undestable midrange to replace beat up dx rocs. I've tried an esp meteor and didn't like it. I've thrown an Opto Fuse about 4 times and LOVED it.

Do I need to try a Comet? How does it compare to the Fuse and/or beat up dx rocs?

I can answer this one.

An X Comet is what you're looking for. They are less high speed dependent than a Fuse, making it easier to work lines and hold turnover lines that don't fade out. Much closer to a beat up dx roc than a Fuse.

If you LOVED an Opto Fuse, why don't you use that? Or you could buy an X Comet like VictorB suggested and see which one you like best. The newer X plastic from Discraft feels really nice and has a bit of grip to it.

Sorry, I loved the Fuse for what it was, but it's not the understable disc I'm looking for. I should have elaborated. From what I could tell, the Fuse would be more of a Buzzz, which are like my seasoned rocs. I'm trying to get away from depending on dx rocs in certain stages of wear and the Fuse will likely make it there, but not for what I think the Comet might be an answer for.

it did replace my beat up rocs and coyotes. It can be a bit finicky to get the hang of at first, the main thing is to throw it nice and easy while learning it. Its a great disc cause it shows the flaws in your throw really well
