What I was truly curious of was the overall stability of those particular Comets compared to a Buzzz. I understand the flight differences in terms of touch vs. power and speed vs. glidey distance. My Buzzzes haven't been responding how I would like (probably because I throw them with a combo of power and high lines), but neither have my Comets to be fair. My MJ '19 is extremely touchy, while my beat Elite-X is finicky on if it wants to turnover or dump out of the sky. I will note that I have a natural hyzer relaese with putters and mids.

My problem with a glow Comet is that I play in snow and have a winter dubs tournament coming up and it has a very wooded back 9, but snow and white discs don't mix. I should get a glow Comet for the summer though.

Chartreuse worm dip dye will take care of that. Your local Wal-Mart may carry it if you are in a area that has good fishing local(ours does), otherwise you can order ir.

I mean I know we are in a Comet thread and everything, but it sounds like you want a KC Pro Roc.

I'm probably gonna get a ton of hate for this, but I carry a beefy Roc to cover the shots that the Comets can't make. They feel super similar in my hand so it works out really well IMO.

On a side note, I love that the Comet thread has more than 300 pages. The Roc has 220 pages and the Envy has 380. I think those are the closest competitors for thread length.

What drivers are you Comet throwers using?

I throw x Comet and a Roc that's probably more like a Z comet as mids and absolutely love em. Wondering if I'd have similar taste in whatever driver you're using

Roc/comet is a proven duo. My Gila/Comet pair isnt that different.

I carry a Sentinel as my crutch. It's not as similar as a Roc because it's oddly fast for what it is, but it's the same concept.

I can't carry a Roc as my crutch because when I do I just throw the Roc all day.

I hate drivers. My drivers are generally DX and Pro Valks. I hate them, though. Hate all of them.

*can't throw drivers*

The gila is much like the San Marino sentinels I bagged back in 06/07. Its great and the speed helps it keep up with the comet distance, especially here @ elevation. Also crowds my wizards less.

I messed up by throwing a whatevertheycallit-Champ plastic Gila that was a bit too beefy for me. Fossils are $$$, though. The only thing keeping Sentinels in my bag right now is the financial investment I have in the stack I've got.

Edit: Amber? Is it Amber plastic?
