The only Comet available at my local store is an elite X that is super domey and VERY stiff. Are those common attributes for Comets or should I be patient and wait for another one to come along? I have no shortage of stable to over stable mid ranges in my bag atm and I would assume this one would fly very much the same.

Comets are slooow domey discs, but usually flatten out a little around the middle of the flight plate. If it looks like a contact lense then it is probably undesirable lol. My X comet is very stiff, a Hair more than my Z, and that is one of my favorite qualities about it. I personally don't like flexy discs even for putting. Flexy discs get worse in the hot summer when I play and better in the freezing winters when I don't play. They are more prone to wobble which is a very bad thing.

So IMO unless it looks like a contact lense snatch it up.

Do you throw drones...just getting into them
I have only thrown them a bit. They are more stable than i really need where i play most of the time. They are a fantastic wind disc!

I remember seeing you at lunch at cookout during the OHO. I was a supernoob at that point and didnt realize how down to earth most of the Pro's are so I didnt say hello. Maybe this year we can play a practice round together...
I had forgotten that i ate there last year. Events kinda run together after you've played as many events as i have the last few years

Even if its really stiff its still not going to be overstable, comets just arent very stable

I was your partner once at Brackett's random doubles and I learned a lot just by paying attention to your technique. I'm very competitive and want to play as well as possible at the tourney. I'm interested in maybe taking a lesson or two before then. How much do you charge?
Pm me we can discuss is
