Comets. I’ve been trying to like them, but I just don’t click with them like I do a beat roc.

Im definitely picky with hand feel. Deep dish putters are pretty unthrowable, IMO. Wizards especially. Too deep to get a clean release consistently.

Wide rim + deep-ish (I.e. Prodigy Ds) drivers offer the same issues; tough to get a clean release consistently.

Any disc rimmed 22mm or wider. Just can't get them to go any further than my 11 speeds.
The Teebird - by the flight number I should like this disc. In practice it is no better than an OS midrange for me.
(note: I throw my distance drivers 350')

I'd put the Viking in the same category. Like a Valk, but a hair beefier and noticeably glideless. Clunky to the max. I've never thrown a Viking I even somewhat liked.
I like the Valkyrie, have for a long time. That was my default answer for "first beginner driver" question. But now, the Valk has a lot of legitimate competition and some aren't as nose angle sensitive as the Valk is.

Yeah, the FD when it first came out didn't wow me. I felt like I had thrown it before with the JLS.

(I like the Buzzz and Comet. The Meteor and Wasp can suck it though).

Pure - just wasn't as stable or predictable - a lot of people love it, but the Atom is a better pure in my mind

Wizard - I tried it, still own 2 - but the hand feel isn't my favorite

Ion - similar with Wizard - the round inside rim is not cool with me - flight is good tho, but - eh

Dagger - I actually committed to the Dagger for a YEAR! I bought a stack of them - just could never say "I love this disc' so I switched - glad I dig

Rocs - I like rocs I guess, roc3 are ok, but I just don't love the feel and the fact there are a million variants of it

Leopard - I have had a few in my day, a fine disc but once I tried a patriot that's the kinda disc I was looking for out of the leopard.

Clash - it was just way too inconsistent and dumpy

Katana - not my fav hand feel and a little unpredictable - there are tons of runs and stabilities making it hard to find that perfect match.

World - super inconsistent - idk who really uses these anyways

Is this like a DX Roadrunner?

I'm pretty sure not liking Comets says more about the disc golfer than the actual disc...but that's just my opinion
