Are you throwing a Wasp instead of a Roc? I find that I need a mid that won't turn much, but has little to no fade either quite a bit, but then again most of the holes I've been playing lately are 200'-275' and straight.

It's not just my first X Comet...it's my first Comet.

I actually bulked ordered my 3rd run ESPs from Discraft directly because I couldn't find anyone willing to sell me a second run, and I'm glad I did. I think it might be my favorite run of Comets. I've really enjoyed throwing them again. Still prefer Rocs.

And since I don't think I've posted this in a few years...in case you don't believe me.

The Comet/Roc thing is a terrible dilemma.

LOL, no... I haven’t bought any ESPs since the second LE run. I have enough of those to last me a lifetime

I used to throw Wasps but am happy cycling Rocs now. I just put a couple Comets that I thought would fill the most thrown spots in my Roc cycle for fun.

Honestly, if you're looking for straight in that range, you're in the right thread.

Given your previous story.. Glow Z all the way!!!!!!

Actually personally I like my glow Z 174.. Reasonable stability, flatter top that kinda mellows the "Z" ness out. Not the glidiest Comet but very utility as Comets go, durable etc and I use it for glow rounds.. A lot!

I don't always play glow Discgolf but when I do, it's always with a Comet.

My 177+ Z that is domey, still turns on me, especially if there is a slight headwind. I know my form is quite torquey, but until I can iron it out, my "2.5" Roc slot is currently unfilled, which is my most thrown mid slot. I need to change my sig, since only the mids are somewhat accurate.
