I guess what I'm trying to say is that when conditions are right for me to throw my favorite, I really only need one. If I feel like I need more stability I will pack two or if it is the only mid range I'm packing definitely two.

I have about 4 in Z I rotate through 2 backups, 3 in ESP primary throwers + 3 backups in ESP I don't throw much.

I'm currently bagging 5 midranges in 2 molds:

Fresh DX Roc3 that holds straight in wind and hold a hyzer
Moderately seasoned to straight w/ slight fade DX Roc3
Lightly seasoned ESP Comet that is just straight
Heavily seasoned Glo Z Comet for turnovers or flip ups
Heavily seasoned X Comet that is super flippy

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??
Currently I have in my cart, finishing from right to left
ESP Comet
Z Comet
Big Z comet (Hasn't been getting much use)

TI Buzz SS

ESP Buzz (Replaced a Drone with this but not much use)
Z Buzz

TI Buzz OS

If you looking for something more flippy than a comet you could always try a Meteor.

Depends on your style of throwing too! My comets in the bag right now are: beefy Z Glo comet (will finish with slight hyzer), and a neutral worn in ESP Glo MJ comet for dead straight to slight turn shots.

I throw a Max weight Z archer for my flippy mid slot (hyzerflip turnovers or even rollers!) Depending on how windy it is I have a Z wasp or a Z hornet on my shelf that I throw in the bag.

But it rarely gets windy enough here where the Glo Z comet can’t handle it. Sometimes I just hulk up on my cryZtal zone instead.

So 2 comets, 1 archer, then a wasp or hornet.

I use a comet for basically anything that is a finesse line. Push hyzers, flip ups, slow turning shots, even turnover forehands...as long as it's not too windy. For power straight shots, long hyzers, or forced turnovers, I'm throwing an aftershock (or wasp depending which is in my bag currently) Then theres the drone for "mini predator" type shots.

Even though I only carry 1 comet currently, it probably gets more work than other midranges.

Wasp seems to go well with the beefiest Comet you can find. In my case it's a vanilla Z Comet. I had a GloZ before but felt like I wasn't getting the glide I look for in a Comet. Would not mind trying another one, maybe I'll go a little domier this time if I can.

Great thread!

Id like to weigh in on the mid range combinations as well. For sake of simplifying I used to struggle limiting my mid molds to three variations; however, the MJ Comets are pretty stable and have allowed me to ditch buzzzs. So on a stability spectrum my lineup is as follows now:

. Old school base plastic comet. Freaky tricky and ugly as crap...kinda like my ex.
. Semi fresh ESP Comet max weight. Has that magical late turn we all look for in this disc
. NEW MJ signature ESP Comet. Flips up straight and rides on rope. Flatter profile for sure...thank you Mr. Johansen
. Beat Z Wasp or Jawbreaker Wasp
. Brand new FLAT Z Wasp or DGA Quake.

MJ, Has there been any disc out of the discraft lineup you have been wanting to try out in a new blend if possible? What would it be? Rubber blend ringer gts for putting, bangers in different plastics? Curious to pick your brain.
