At any rate...most Comet throwers I know are cheating with a more OS mid for certain situations. You CAN throw only Comets. I've seen it done. I'm not that good.

I used to only throw comets.

You can do it, but you can also change tires with a crescent wrench...it just might not be the best option for every job

Edit: Amber? Is it Amber plastic?
Yes amber. I prefer Armor (more like star) and they are usually straighter. They start close or less stable than a fresh fossil, but faster and have good carry. I carry 2 or 3 Gila and 2 or 3 Comets.

I'm a Comet thrower and on the "understable" side of things I bag Leopard3's and Sidewinders . . . I think they are "Comet-like" drivers with the understanding that no driver will ever be like a mid like the Comet. But they glide well, are workable on various lines and are good finesse discs like a Comet.

If you love Discraft then probably a Mantis and Heat would be the same kind of thing (MJ does bag those).

I've never thrown them but I'll bet others would add the FD, River & Maverick to the list. From all I've read I'll bet the FD is the most Comet-like driver . . . but I'm happy with the Leo3's so I never tried them.

My drivers are not indictive of my love for comets. Beat teebirds and beat in wraiths are my long range flippy discs.

A beat in teebird can be comet-esque cause they are neutral line holders.

Sidewinder
Wraith or Shryke

My drivers aren't really settled. ^^^These are the most likely to be in the bag. The Leopards are almost always in. Thunerbirds/Vikings/OLFs/Undertakers sometimes make an appearance.

Thanks guys.

I currently throw Z FLX Heat which I really like that's likely in the SW ballpark. Also have a PP Convict that I like for similar finesse flight but slightly more stable.

I'm kind of on a fairway kick lately but on the understable side, I mainly use a Relay. I like the Relay a lot but I've always been curious about what a proper weighted Leopard in different plastics would fly like, as well as FDs. Only tried a lightweight mantis... Stalkers?

I bought my old man a Sting last year, I should also try that this spring.

Add: I used to have a DX Eagle that I destroyed... i'd like to try more of those too

Gorgeous. Slow-ish and long... if you have a decent ceiling to work with. These are easily capable of 400+ on a golf line if you throw them correctly. Stars work best for these shots IMO.

I use:
DX for very understable
Pro for pretty much anything I can
Star (or Champ) for relatively overstable or higher powered shots.

It's a good match for a Comet IMO. JLS, FD and others can also be considered. From what I hear, Leos are a bit like Relays. I still need to try Relays one of these days. I just never get paid in Relays for the stamp jobs I do
