He played ultimate a lot before he got into disc golf.

He's going to throw one this winter, because I'm going to give him one and make him throw it

Ever since I came across this video on youtube, I've become obsessed with playing Comet only rounds. Just 2 Comets. My local course only has 2 maybe 3 holes 400+ ft so I'm not missing much by not having drivers. It's helped my over all game and taught me to disc down more often.

I'm curious what 2 comets everyone here would carry if they were to play a comet only round.

When I go out, I bring a beat 175 X and a newer stock stamp Z. I putt, approach and throw turnover shots with the X and the Z does most of the work off the tee and forehand flicks if I'm really in trouble.

Your choice is exactly what I'd choose for a 2 Comet round. I could swap an ESP LE in for the X but a have a sweet, flippy meatball stamp X that I paid $4 for.

Fresh Z and beat Z would be my choice.

If I could only throw one discs for the rest of forever, it would be a Z Comet. And honestly, my scores would not suffer much.

I took 3 Z Comets out the other day, 174g used, 178g and 180g new. The 180g is a puddle top and most OS.
I could see carrying two of these in my bag. The comparisons to the Cobra is correct, imo, but there's still something different.

Been rocking a domey 174 X and high shoulder to flat 178 or 179 MJ ESP (2019 I think?). Surprised myself with a few shots a week or two back, see post #3406.

Long time Cobra thrower here, unsure of your history with them. To me the Comet has a hyzerflip to flat when worn/beat or not too much hyzer upon release, perhaps gently drifting right as well RHBH. The same amount of release angle on a similarly beat Cobra will not hold the "flat" part of that flight but rather will keep turning more...and fade more at the end. Less glide than the Comet but they are also faster so distance is negligible. Cobra is also the superior roller disc IMO

I bag both in a large bag, but recently with my Spider Monkey I've only been bringing Comets - they're still a relatively new mold to me (year or so?). I can manipulate both molds to give me similar results but the way they reach their landing zones are unique to one another.

Been a while since I've thrown an X Comet, they carried really well with some spin at low power. I lost my last one 2-3 years ago and have been throwing almost exclusively 174-180 Z's since, with a short dabble with a '19 MJ ESP. The MJ was really beefy, big time overlap with my middle stability Rocs.
I normally carry one 175-176 Z, but I guess if I had to pick a pair I'd go with a seasoned 173-174 Z and a fresh 177+. Preferably both domey.
