Is the Coyote/Anubis beaded?
I bought an Anubis for a friend, which became an immediate wall hanger, but I can't remember.

I do know Mr. Comet himself used to throw the Coyote when he was with Innova.

From what I hear from the Coyote guys it's not the same as it used to be..

Not that it matters much in this zombie thread, but fwiw, I have sanded off beads before.

Followed up by one of the least reasonable answers.

Watched a dude park a 320' hole with an old QMS on a beautiful slowly turning BH. Didn't recognize it at the time but it was quite Comet-like.

How is this unreasonable? OP wanted ideas for a beadless comet. The rotational inertia will change ever so slightly I guess, making it ever so slightly slower, but comets are already only speed 4. It becomes an issue if you plan to use it in a pdga sanctioned event because of rule 813.01 B and I wouldn't personally risk it, but a person could argue two things here:
1. How many throws onto a road could warrant the complete sanding of the bead within the confines of the rule
And
2. How is flight characteristic alteration quantified? We already know that parting parting line heights have a big impact on stability per mold and plastic. If you remove a bead, you're removing what, 1 gram? 5 grams? I never took apart a disc to compare the ratio of rim weight to flight plate weight like MVP, but the rotational inertia equation will be changed on the rim by that amount of mass reduction, which occurs at the point closest to the center of the disc with regards to the bead and thus having the smallest impact on rotational inertia as far as the rim is concerned. I find it hard to believe that sanding off a bead will produce a flight characteristic beyond the tolerances of disc production in general. It might change its ability to be thrown differently, but not its actual flight. But again, "excessive sanding" is expressly forbidden in the pdga rules so while it's an ethical grey area, I would only do this to a disc I use for casual play.

Does that make my answer more reasonable?

No, because you're intentionally modifying the disc, which is pretty straightforward against the rules. Not a debate I want to have, but there's really no reason to follow a different ruleset.

Also if it was just magically a better disc without the bead, I'm pretty sure manufacturers would watch on at some point in the development process and make that mold
