I finally found a dealer that stocks X Comets. Picked up a max weight one yesterday. Been sick and not able to test it out...arrgh

I ordered a couple of the signature Comets. They look nice, and now I hope they fly just as nice. Also, I hope you're getting a share of profits.

MJ, have these signature Z Comets molded up just like a typical max weight Z Comet? More overstable?

Got some field practice in with the X Comet and a round in as well. I thought the Comet was awesome in other plastics, but now I see why there is so much rave about the X. It's flight is so super smooth.
Unfortunately, it is so rocky here that I don't know how long is will be before it is chewed into bits. The X is seems to be very fragile. I don't see the Z leaving my bag.

i play very rocky courses. bottom line is this: i have been very surprised how long an X-Comet remains in each stage of wear, whether it been a nice fresh max weight or a beat low 160s.

X Comets are amazing (or TP when I can find them). Z Plastic once it does beat in is an amazing thing. It takes forever to beat in (and longer for a slow flying disc like the comet) but its worth it. The problem is when you loose a seasoned one...

Yes we are getting a good chunk of the profits from these. Compared to a regular Z, they might be a tick less stable. They are super straight right out of the box and the plastic is much grippier than normal Z

I didn't get one of the Z runs, just a couple of your Ti Stamp Comets, but I did get one of Val's Thrashers, and it is a bit gripper, it isn't full on Z FLX plastic, but more toward that than traditional Z.

Seems like recent Z plastic is better on a whole than stuff even from a year ago. Grippy but still tough. Maybe it's all in my head? Maybe discraft love is just growing lol

I haven't noticed anything different. The Tour Series Z's I have feel the same as the Z that's been in the bag for a couple years. Never had a problem gripping it. If I did I'd try to buy up CryZtal, which is usually more grippy. Seems to have some FLX in it.
I prefer rigidity over grip for most discs, though.

Mine seems more overstable than the Z I've been using. But truth be told, I'm starting to think my Z (a fly dye around 175g) flies more like my 177+ X Comet.

The tour series Comet I've been throwing is noticeably less overstable than a max weight Ti (Ledgestone) I have.

I bought two tour series discs, but they're so pretty that I'm only throwing one right now.
