Hey MJ,

What is the most stable run of comets that's stock or decently easy to acquire? I have ones from straight to heavy turn (currently bag 3) but would love to have one that will hook up slightly as long as I don't overwork it.

If you don't find a comet stable enough, you could try a Göte, a large diameter glidy mid but more stable than a comet.

This is an MJ Comet love thread, not a what should I throw instead of a Comet thread.

Not MJ, but...

I've always found max weight, domey Z's to be pretty reliably OS for a Comet.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out. I have a new Z but remember it being dead straight. I'll have to pull it out and give it another go.

The Bobcat has been flying really well for me, but it fades a lot more than any comet, obviously. The dead straight ESP swirl glo I have works well enough, just wasn't sure if there was anything stock that was slightly more likely to hook up at the end. After 10 years of throwing them, I'm just so comfortable with comets that I like to use them on just about every shot that I can.

I found a really domey glo Z comet that’s the most stable I’ve ever thrown. Funny thing is it’s only 170-172g.

I’ve thrown the last 2 years worth of MJ ESP signature comets to compare, while those are nice and stable out of the box. The glo Z still wins for stability.

And if MJ can throw his Comets as far as he does without turn and still get a fade, is it too early to say that maybe field practice is more important than adding another disc to the bag?

You guys are too funny. If I could throw my comets like MJ, with the courses I usually play, I'd literally just carry 2 comets and a putter in my hand. Guy is good!

That said, nothing wrong with adding a new disc or version of a disc to the bag. After all, a lot of us are as good as we're going to get, or close to it anyhow.

Yeeep. I figure either I could practice form for hours on end and maybe, maybe I could slay my local with a comet and a wizard...or I can throw a couple drivers in my bag and get a slightly better score with my current level of suck because of the extra 20-50 feet they get me.

Back on topic, I’ve found the recent max weight ESPs are pretty throwable even for someone who sort of sucks (me) as long as you’re not throwing into a headwind. I don’t have a huge sampling to pull from but they seem like they’re probably “stable” comets.
