Thanks for the advice on this one Frank, I just got a Comet and I have launched a few good shots but mostly I turn it over short. Sounds like I need to throw it similarly to a 150 Champ T-bird that I like to use in the woods.

Sorry troll, the ION is the real deal. It's revolutionary. Don't let your hatred of Franky boy deprive you of one of the best discs out there.

Damn this popcorn is good

yeah youre right. i havnt seen any real progression in disc design in the 20 years ive been throwing plastic. the valk, firebird, boss, destroyer, and katanas arent REALLY note-worthy advancements.

the ion is the greatest, most controllable driving putter ive ever thrown. i try every disc that comes out. the ions stand out. they feel that good.

i'm not ruling out the ion. I'll give one a try. I'm just skeptical because of all the hype. Some people gotta have the newest thing out and they want everybody to know that they have it as if they are the "first" (see DS's comments). But revolutionary??? that's a pretty bold statement right there. would you still like it if it didn't look like candy? because appearance isn't even on the list of things I look for in a putter. but "revolutionary" from BD, that makes me wanna try one out...

mine drops like a rock when putting with it. wind doesnt seem to have much effect on it, so i use it when its windy or when putting downhill.

A lot of people praise it as a driving putter but I think discspeed putts with it too. Not sure about the other dudes.
