You could also pick 1 to leave out for a while. If you find yourself consistently missing that mold and the other isn't getting it done switch them out and see if that fixes what ails you.

I hadn't realized this was a hot issue.

I like both, but I'm throwing Cobras right now. It's pretty much do you want slow, glidey, and straight? Or faster, a little less glide, and a more snake-ish pattern. Also it has a snake on it.

The newest Cobras have different tooling and the nose appears to be sharper.

Comet! Especially now because you can get them in so many different plastics to fill different slots of stability (beat x for flippy, ESP for neutral, Ti for stable). The glide, and not having to muscle a shot really helps too.

Cobra just feels better in the hand to me.

Me throw Cobras over Comets? That was then, this is three hours later.

But still. They're both great discs. But the glidey slowness and less action at the end of the flight is what's drawing me to Comets at the moment. Check for another update tomorrow.

I am missing the big snake on the disc though...

Cobras are gross. As are all Innova mids.

This is the issue for me as well. I realize most logical people would just throw both, but I like to carry less discs.

One mold has dwindled down to DX only, the other is a tour series disc (which also comes in a great baseline-ish plastic, X).
