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.

The fact that I know this lets me know I should take a break from dgcr.

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.

My winter lineup will probably be 1 new 2018 MJ Comet, 1 PL aftershock, 1 shastashock, and 1 PL quake

Default 2020 mid lineup

My mid lineup is currently in flux for the winter too. Hoping to figure out the overstable side of the spectrum.

173 Z Comet(three aces on it and gets most of the work under 200’)
179 2019 MJ tour Comet(long comet shots, shots that I want to finish left)
177 sparkle BuzzOS
175 Mcbeast Z zone

Can’t decide on either the buzzOS or the zone for overstable mid, adding an ancient z wasp in for the winter to further complicate that choice.

Regardless of location winter often entails extra clothing and a worse run up. Though day to day I would preach Zone>BOS, for winter stuff I'd say disc up to the BOS. Does it come in FLX plastic? If not try a Drone All joking aside if you'll absolutely bag both next spring and just want a temporary winter minimalist bag yes BOS. If you're at all unsure or "a Zone person" then stick with what you know...

They sold out very quickly just like the MJ ESP Banger GTs did.

Don't both suggesting that Discraft could make more of either of these discs. That would be way too logical.

Guess I missed out on that one. Never even heard about the release.

Discraft is too busy to do that ATM for anything like that because they're making all the McBeth fanboys happy...
