There's another thing I'm wondering as I read the suggestions from others for your bag: Why would someone who bags a bunch of Rocs add a Comet?

For sure, the Comet is a great disc -- in fact, it is my most loved disc -- but adding a great disc does not necessarily improve a good bag. As you carry a bunch of Rocs and some are worn in, I think that they cover the Comet lines already. (I do have a beat DX Roc, which flies almost the same as my Comet.) In my oppinion adding a Comet would not improve your bag but rather decrease the simplicity it currently has.

On the other hand, I've read several times that Rocs and Comets match well. They clearly feel similar in the hand, but I always regarded their combination as consisting of a newish Roc with fade and a Comet without fade. As soon as you cycle Rocs, I see no more need for the Comet.

How do you and others see the situation? (You have not bagged the Comet; why not?)
I think the Comet suggestions were recommendations for a disc that would be good for form work, though bagging a Comet is always a good suggestion.

The reason I don't have a Comet in my main bag is because I have worn in Rocs that cover what I'd use a Comet for, much as you described. If for some reason I lost my worn in Rocs and all my backups, then I'd bag a Comet until I can wear in some more Rocs to that spot.

In post #17 of this thread, I list some other bags/discs that I have assembled. The Discraft bag has a Comet. If I needed to, I would use this Comet until I have a straight/turnover Roc again.

Alternatively I could use the Leopard3 that I bag, though it would have to be powered down or thrown on a lower line.

Thanks a lot. That makes sense to me.



During my reading through old threads I came across this bag evolution thread that deals with the Rocs/Comets question all the way through:
