Well, aikalailla niin kuin ainoa oikea Comet lentää. Lähin versio prototyypistä, joka oli aikoinaan money kiekko.

Well, just like the only right Comet fly. The closest version of a prototype that was once a money reel.

There are not a lot of Elite X Comets to be had online right now. Perhaps that will change some time in the future.

I told myself that I wasn't going to get a 2019 MJ but then I went to a store and there they were.

The 2018's MJ's I have are really low shouldered and seem very flat because of it. The Sparkle Ledgestone and now this 2019 MJ I have picked up (because I evidently have a specialty Comet run problem) have a high shoulder so more of the dome I tend to look for; they are kinda 3rd-run LEish (which was the run I liked.) So I'm guessing the 2019 Tour Series is going to be on the beefy side for a Comet, but it's been raining (again!) so I haven't thrown it.

Of course all the specialty run Comets are 177g+; they run all those heavy. My go-to Comet right now is a Big Z with the same sort of high-shouldered dome but it's 173-174g. I generally throw Z Comets in that general 171-175g weight range, so I think I've always counteracted the extra beef a bit with the lighter weight. I still have my $ Comet from back in the 90's; it was penned 171g so I've always thrown a lighter Comet. I should probably stop buying all these heavy specialty runs.

Ok I'm prepared to think about it.. Looks camouflaged though.. Maybe not..

Damn why do I want so many Comets..

I want my old Elite X back.. 179g... never should have given it to my friend so he could forget it somewhere... seems like a needless tragedy. That old plastic was sexy, it's hard to get behind new X.. It's a shadow of what once was.

Here it is, it's very soft and gummy, I was surprised. As far as the Dome I'll have to compare it to my Z and ESP comets and let you know. For now though here are the pictures:
