I have a couple of flat X-Comets and yes they can be leaned on more so than the domey ones. the "best" Comets have a nice gradual dome with a defined plateau in the middle. These also can be leaned on if you have a clean form. But the Comet really wasn't meant to be muscled.

There is a lot of technique involved in playing the wind. I ain't skeered to throw a polecat/sonic/bite into a headwind. Don't throw as hard.

Nice inclusion of the Bite in that list. Does this mean that Polecats have some competition for a spot in your bag?

I have one too. 180g and off-white. You should buy mine, no sense in both of us having bad Comets.

i was just wondering on peoples thoughts about this idea and wasnt sure what it would do. i wasnt looking to be ripped for not knowing how to throw a disc that i know how to throw quite well. just wanted someone's thoughts about something i have never tried.

Generally, if I get a disc that should be flat-ish with a big 'ol pop top dome on it I'll use the hot water trick and try to flatten it.

Part of the reason that you got ripped on was you suggested taking a disc that is supposed to have some dome and flatten it to change its flight. That's not a great idea; in the case of the Comet it actually will probably make it flippier and worse in a headwind. If you want something to fight a headwind, you should probably buy a disc like a Hornet that is designed to be thrown into a headwind.
