Agreed on the 2019 ones being stable, mine replaced an old Z Buzzz in my bag

I just one one of these in an auction for a steal. I am so stoked for it. I had one a while back and loved it... But I love almost all comets

Odd thing was the gote was more HSS on a smooth slow throw. And threw big anny lines well. But it doesnt handle power nearly as well as a comet. Its odd how much touchier it was at higher speed. It didnt give me much more than my wizards do or rekos did. Reminds me a bit of a domey Ontario shark.

Curious to hear what you're doing for training. I have found hot yoga to be a nice complement to disc golf.

I have found the Domed Shark in Star, the last of the Pre-Flight numbered discs to be the best thought I do like the mold 5 grams light of max weight the way I like most discs outside of putting putters with Exceptions in my bag... These discs are, Impact at 170-172 grams and 173-174 grams, the Stalker 170-172 grams, and the Champion Destroyer at 165-167 grams thought I have a 170 gram Champion for very high wind days I should not really be playing.

MJ, Curious to how long discs usually stick around in your bag? I'm guessing comets move through a little quicker just from volume of use. Also, at what point do you say this particular disc is done and another one needs to go in?

MJ what mids are you bagging to compliment the Comets? I’ve tried the Buzzz, Wasp, Malta and now onto the Drone which seems to be my favorite.

I am not MJ but I also had trouble pairing my comets for years. The Buzzz is too close unless it's fresh ti or something. My prefered compliment is not discraft. The hornet was my favorite dc compliment.

I believe that MJ bags an ESP Banger for shorter throws and uses a fairway driver (Mantis?) for longer throws. MJ can correct me, but I can't think of any time that I've heard that he threw a different mid-range (Buzzz, Wasp, Drone, etc.).

I remember him saying on windy days he would put in a buzzz, and I think for a time the hornet would come in and out. I’m guessing the Malta is going to take the place of the hornets when he carries that spot. Again MJ will be the one to actually clarify.
