Flat/puddle generally means flippy with Comets. I've found or traded for several LE, don't know what run but one is pretty soft and flattish and it's flippy. I have a meatball stamp X that's almost puddle from use and it's flippy too.

Any way to tell what runs on the LE?

anywho,

1st runs - have tooling - chalky/tacky plastic - high shoulder - domey - kinda stiff
2nd runs - flatter- slicker/softer blend of esp - low shoulder- have tooling - most were not domey
3rd runs - domey and flat - soft blend esp - no tooling - high shoulder
I disagree with the soft blend ESP of the 3rd runs, but this is the best description of the runs written soon after the 3rd and last LE run was released. To also add to this, the yellow 3rd runs were more ZSP than ESP.

Bang on mutha fu cka!!! The first runs really are special and oddly soft... and the yellow 3rds are their own kind of magic.. Probably what formed my yellow esp preference (flat top bit of shoulder). My 3rd run esp is a freak!!! Yellow, it's like grippy Z, good laser stability and improved grip, everything you thought a hybrid should be! It's like a glow Z slightly broken in with way better hand feel but the same magic flight.

Haha expanded version for ya!

My first run sounds like a second run but I know it's a first, I jumped on the second run, wait maybe I missed it, either way only kept the freak yellow. I traded a couple to someone, got a fission 143 photon first run.. Magic disc, took a tournament in masters (tied for open) with it. Worth it!!! (Maybe mild regret... nope worth it! I bought more MVP lightweight after that)

Not so humble brag:

Played Steel Club (Hellertown, PA) for the first time Sunday and had a few incredible shots with the Comet. If anyone watched the recent tournament coverage the course has changed some but overall it's a very similar layout.

Parked a flat and open 375' hole (line of pines behind the basket) with an 18' MJ, very mild tailwind. Also threw the same disc 440'ish on a downhill, tee and basket along a line of trees on the left - right side of the fairway was open. Wasn't parked but was well within the circle. Enjoyed having 8 or so ball golfers watch it take a lifetime to land Ran the chains a few times from inside 200' elsewhere on the course - mostly with poor footing or brush getting in the way of what my normal putter throw would be.


Why did I wait all these years to throw bag the Comet?

I still have my 2 yellow 3R LE Comets. I will say they definitely formed my preference for what my perfect Comet should be. The '18 MJs are damn near identical in shape, which is why I stocked up on those.

Been trying to convince a friend of mine to bag Comets. He has pretty ridiculous angle and speed control, so a Comet would fit like a glove in his bag. He is very change resistant though - but I got him throwing Undertakers after him seeing me throw so many good shots with those, so it's not a lost cause.

I was such an anti-beaded midrange guy - I'm sure you could dig up countless posts of me in the past saying such. A Buzzz whore. Does your friend have an ultimate (or freestyle) background at all? Tell them to shut up and just throw the thing. I finally did, and, well, you see my above post(s).

DGCR made me throw a Comet about 10yrs ago and I'm grateful for it!!!!

All this talk about 3R yellow LE's makes me wish I'd picked up a couple ESP glows, I bet they feel and fly nice! I thought it was stupid they didn't glow though so I passed.

I took a Comet out today. Parked my 1st and last holes with it. I might have figured out the grip issue.
