But I'd be more excited by Innova XT Comets or Gateway Sur-Grip Comets.
I'll see your Sur-Grip Comets and raise you Eraser Comets.

Heh heh, yes. I pretty much own and have thrown every Comet. I do like Big Z and they are "grippy" in summer but I play year round and they aren't grippy enough in winter.

True, but flatter is usually more understable for Comets. Jawbreaker is flat . . . almost has a puddle top when new . . . and is the most understable Comet I've thrown when new. I'd love it if Gstar or ESP FLX would mold up the same but be more durable.

Unhappy

Just wanted to come here to vent. I lost my favorite comet today, a domey 169g big z. Threw it on a monster 400’ downhill hole and once it cleared the gap and got out into the open it started turning and probably glided 200+ feet the right into a giant ravine. Re teed and threw a roc3 afterwards and it did the same thing. Once I walked down there I realized there was a ripping headwind.

I enjoy throwing Comets. It is my favorite US midrange.
When my hyzerflip pures a line, I think to myself "yes".
When it flips too much and glides 200' god knows where to the right, I think to myself "no".

This story was like reading some kind of disc golf comic in the Sunday funny pages.

Pour one out, hate losing Comets

Chained out on a drive today using my new Swirly ESP Comet. This is my first ESP and it just gets effortless distance with that point n shoot comet precision.

Sadly, after crashing into the chains it took a temporary swim in a shallow pond. It's not gone, just cost me a really awesome birdie. Stupid ponds...
