The fact that I know this lets me know I should take a break from dgcr.
My dog is actually named Moo

I recently went out and played an opposite hand Comet only round at a little pitch and putt. I didn't play well but actually had some fun again. It was much needed.

Ever go out and play atypical rounds for the challenge?

I used to a lot. Not necessarily opposite hand rounds, but would do ome mold only or try all side arms or roller rounds and such. Can keep the game fresh and fun

I saw you had to miss some action to go take care of him, hope he is feeling back to 100%.

I think I tried to quote the post that person was replying too, it was literally just a copy and paste of an answer you gave a long time back. Strange.

Glad to see your back though!

Just had to say I LOVE the new run of your tour series comets! A bit more OS than last year's (I like them straight to OS). Plus, they're awesome to look at. I've already bought two (that i don't really need)!

I actually really enjoyed it. Very well run for the most part and super challenging courses that were a nice balance to each other. Wish I could have putted better though

Comet throwers - how do other midranges fit into your lineup? In my case, I'm trying to bag one or two X comets to wear into neutral/flippy, plus a nice reliable Z comet. With any side or headwind, I would really rather throw a buzzz for forced turnovers, but then I'm still going to want something in between a buzzz and my OS mid, probably a Wasp as I have not been able to find a buzzz that is stable enough for this slot. And then honestly, I would really like to bag a truly flippy mid alongside the relatively stable X Comet - think mirage or tremor.

I end up with like 5 freaking mid molds! How do I manage this? I could cut one or two and just power down a champ teebird for OS mid shots, or power up on a Proxy or something for some Comet shots, but who wants to do that??

I go back and forth between a Wasp and a Buzzz, currently bagging a Buzzz. Throw a Quake for OS stuff, flippy X Comet for US stuff and a domey Z Glo Comet for stable Comet duties. Buzzz and Z Glo Comet do most of my mid work. I don't have much use for anything more US than my X Comet.

Depending on conditions, temperature and wind mainly I pick my Comet and build the bag off that.. It's cool enough now I can use my worn 174 glo Z Comet again as a superb straight flyer with zero fade. When it was warmer I switched to a fresher ESP 170 because it turned less.

I play a small 8-10 disc bag.. My Z Comet has replaced my Buzzz. I usually pack something more stable like a heavy Tangent or Axis, I putt/approach with plasma Envy so my stable slots are covered. If they aren't I will throw something like a Crave or Relay at 250' but a Wasp is what I used to use.

Sometimes I will go 176 ESP for a touch more stability if it's breezy, if it's nasty out 180Z fresh. Then I build backwards, if I'm packing the 180Z I usually take a worn FR ESP 172 for long turnovers. As far as more understable or short understable I use the Spin.
