If I can't find the room, I'll be rotating the Ti and the Z. So as you can see, I'm definitely a Follower of the Temple of the Comet. Best mid-range disc ever made. And IMHO, the best disc golf disc ever made.

On a side note: I recently purchased another Michael Johansen Tour series disc with a stamp version I had never seen before. Looked like a standard tour series stamp where the Chaineater comet is above the word "Comet", and Johansen's signature is below it (I believe these are the 2018 Tour Series). But this one has a dot matrix background, the Chaineater is at a slightly different angle, and Johansen's signature is slightly lower. Really curious as to the history behind this stamp.
Can you post a picture of it? I have a 2017 z tour series and a 2018 esp glo as well, I would love to see what you have there.

What's is the most stable version of the Comet out there?
Currently throwing a Glow Comet. Love it, and the most stable version I've thrown.

I'd say max weight 2018 tour series. The 2019's flew pretty standard for a Comet.

I'll second this, only Comet I've thrown that would really fight back. Flew like a Roc.
Generally any heavy domey Z (including regular, Big Z and Glo) will be pretty hearty.

Default Comet love?

The other thing I’ve noticed with Z Comets, is if they are pearly and fairly opaque, they’re pretty beefy for a comet. I stumbled across a few these about 2-3 years ago. I can throw them with a bit of anhyzer and they will fight back out like a Roc does.

Y'all are making me want to throw comets again. I always end up liking them a lot at first but slowly start throwing them less and less for something a little more reliable and wind resistant.

1. Do these fly similarly to a Buzzz?

2. Can I get a pic or 2 for example of what to look for?

No. A Comet is a high-line floaty disc that is best used with finesse and the Buzzz is a low-line "throw it hard" disc. They are just fundamentally different. A Comet with more stability doesn't change that.

Unless something has changed that I'm unaware of, the easiest way to get a beefy Z Comet has always been to just get a Glow Comet. That seems way easier than searching for pearly opaque Comets.
