Interesting, my x Comet has held up well. In fact, I was thinking x must be the best baseline plastic that I've had... You play on rocky courses?

I thought the Durability depended on the run? You know kind of like the flex of Z depending on run to run. No mater what the discs tend to fly the same from Discraft run to run.

Not sure. I only have one x, to your point. Could be true, which is one of reasons I was questioning ... I would buy another x at this point but not if they vary run to run that much to the point one guy says they're trash and the other guy feels they're the best...

I have only used old Elite X and there were two types. First was an almost no gloss Elite X that would get waxy and fingerprinted up after a short period of a years use, the plastic was softer. Then a second Elite X that was low gloss and felt like a low gloss less durable ESP but not as durable as ESP, these Elite X were the harder more durable plastic. Often the Second Elite X had a sparkle/shimmer to it but not always. A few early early Elite X were between the First and Second in terms of wax & fingerprints and had durability between the two main types.

New to the comet world. Have a 172ish zglo (so domey!) and a max weight ESP (bought because glo is great camouflage in our woods in the daytime). I’m not that good but man am I finding a lot of use for these discs. Not sure if it’s the lighter weight or the dome but the zglo is definitely more comet-y for my noodle arm-flippier and glidier. I might even have to keep both in the bag for those shots where I’m not worried about the glo hiding under devils club.

I just scooped a couple of new x comets and they are seriously lss,even compared to the z and esp ones I've thrown. The plastic feels awesome and I'm sure they'll season in, but after about ten rounds and a lot of tree hits they are still fading out. My old x comets are stiffer and serious flip and glide machines so I'm hoping these will season into something similar.

I saw some fresh X stock a few months back.. Is it softer than previous runs?

Yup. I've had an x comet in the bag for a year and it's in very good shape. It's probably one of my fave plastics from discraft.
