Just took delivery of these two beautiful titanium comets so guess I'll see how they throw this week!

They look great and feel great, here's hoping they fly great as well (actually my first Ti disks)

I'm loving it with Challengers and Zones. Any idea if they're doing Ringers or Putt'rs in the future?
Only messed with the bangers in jawbreaker so far. I like that it is in between the d and soft plastic feel. Maybe my d banger in the bag will become a jawbreaker at some point. And I am not sure what they are planning to make in that plastic

Such a great disc! The comet is the one disc I make sure to loan to anyone new to the sport too. How Discraft doesn't include into their starter pack is beyond me. But then again I'm not a huge buzz fan. Comet and then if I need something more stable I'll reach for a wasp.

Here's a quick question though. How are the titanium comets compare to the current Z comets and Big Z comets? The Big Z seem a little more stable then the regular Z to me. The Ti any more stable then the big Z?
For me the titanium are more stable than the rest of the comets. Big z and z are similar, big z will break in faster

Is this theory accurate?
Yes, it shows problems with your form and gives good feedback for when you get it right

thank you, MJ!

Looking forward to seeing you and Mcbeth compete on the wooded courses in 2017, since he is apparently moving back east

Good luck, and have a great season in 2017!

You know I received a 175 z comet in a misprint pack and threw it alongside my 180 glo comet to see if there was a big difference. I can throw my glo dead straight to 300 flat, and when i threw it on a 300ft dow hill shot it gave me a nice S (very stable). My z comet, however would turn at about 260 unless I gave it some hyzer.

What I obviously notice is that my glo comet is very domey whereas my z is flat to slightly concave. Is this a common feature of z comets? I bag the glo to complement my pin ghosts but i dont want to carry 2 comets due to space. Plus its snowy outside so i dont want to throw my white glo until it dries up.

I've been trying out at 167g ESP Comet lately. I've played a few rounds with it as my main midrange so far. I've only used it on shots up to 260ft. Great disc. I'm most comfortable when throwing on a slight hyzer or more. And this disc is perfect for those kinds of throws. It just floats and floats. Very predictable turn and fade. I love it in the woods, which is all the courses that I play.

How much would I need to beat in a Cryztal Comet in order for it to expose my form issues both FH and BH. I think that it will already expose my FH issues but I'm not a Discraft/form expert.
