Part of making this thread was so I could see how many people don't like it because it is too flippy............because those guys would benefit the most from learning the disc.

Anyway I am not a big fan of the Z since some were a little soft.....I have seen some blue ones that were nice and stiff and I will try to get some more in my next order and see if it makes it into the bag.

I can see someone not liking the plastic but if it is too flippy for you its probably in your best interest to find a way to throw it straight as it will eventually add distance to pretty much every throw and even more importantly give you a smoother release in general.

Yeah he was actually one guy i had in mind who rocks this disc and he also came over to Discraft from another company and fell in love with the disc. He is also from NC where a Comet would see more use than most other areas due to the wooded fairways.

Also Ron Russel won the world championships in 99' with a Cyclone, Comet, and Magnet as his only discs.

Got my first tourney ace with a Z-Comet on #6 at MacGregor Park.

The Yellow ones I just got seem pretty stiff, but I guess it's what you're used to.

That right there is the main reason I forced myself to start throwing one.

Default comet

I like the comet for what used to be my short RHFH shot. It turns faster than alot of my putters so it has its uses. I think if your throwing it and it finds the ground too fast you should try hyzer flipping it. Doing so it will give you a dead straight line out to 100 than start to turn right. I like to do this with alot of putters also it all depends on what my arm is doing and my confidence not the actual disc limitations

Exactly.

The Comet has a bad rap as a turnover disc. You CAN turn it over, but you can also throw a big sweeping hyzer with one as well and pretty much anything in-between. It's pretty much neutral stable, you can do just about anything you want with it. If you can't get it to do anything but flip it's the archer, not the arrow.

Beads = Stabilizers which is pretty much why most of the best discs have beads. The bead prevents the disc from flipping early and allows a more direct flight pattern.

Anyway the bead is the reason a Teebird is still a great wind disc even though it isn't "Overstable" and will outperform Destroyers and even most Xcals in consistency in the wind.

List of great beaded discs: Teebird, Roc, Gazelle, Viper, Firebird, Eagle, X2, Cyclone, X-clone, Talon, Comet, MRV, MRX, and Wasp.

Actually I may need to start another thread asking for the best non-beaded discs since retty much every staple disc has a bead.
