My new Jawbreaker Comets came in the mail this weekend (pictured below), and I think it's going to become my new go-to Comet until it gets super beat up. It's a touch less stable than my Z Glo or newish ESP Comets, but more stable than my X and beat-up Ti Comets (all max weight). It still flips up easily (as expected) and seems to have more fade than any of my other Comets when not fully turned over, so I was able to pull off a ridiculously accurate 270-ish ft hyzerflip, which got me excited enough to want to make it my primary. The Jawbreaker plastic is medium firmness and smooth yet super tacky, and I am curious to see how quickly it gets beat up by collisions.

Nice. Those jawbreakers look sweet. Just got myself a ledgestone TI and have a fly dyed z on the way. Still on the lookout for a nice looking ‘18 esp in a lower weight.

I'm trying to buy the hype but my star Cobras are great for me. I play mostly wooded courses.

I wouldn't give up a perfectly good mid that was working for me to try another disc. I mean if you were throwing mid shots with a Roadrunner I'd say give the Comet a try, but a Cobra? You already have your mid.

I bag both. Comets are "one line" shots usually, while the Cobras are for "two line" shots and rollers. Comets can fly higher lines without risking not turning enough/too dumpy of a fade, and Cobras I can punch through on lower lines. Many different uses for both though it's definitely not a necessity to have both in any persons bag. Different strokes and all that.

PM me if you wanna hear more Cobra (and Comet) talk!

After I got the use 1 disc talk after starting out with bosses and Katanas haha, I picked the Cobra and did everything with it. That was the DX. Now the Stars I have remind me of the love I got for the Cobra.

Comets fly nice and straight, nothing bad about them. I just wondered why so many people were in love with a disc so I tried it. I will continue to keep try it to see if something I like is there, but I only like to bag 8 to 10 discs.

I threw a Comet this weekend for the first time in years and almost aced the hole.
I gotta get me one.

(I also love Cobras and could see a spot for both in a bigger bag. I agree with Grip's comparisons of the two discs.)
