I hope to see ESP Comets in regular production more. I had a flat heavy one years ago that was incredible.

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.
I started throwing Cobras when all there was were San Marino molds.
I can do things with Cobras that these Comets won't do. But I'm not sure if the difference is the DX Cobra vs the Z Comets which feels like Innova Champ plastic.
I know almost nothing about Discraft plastic.

I'm looking to get a 165g X-line Comet to get better and learn a clean release. What kind of distance can I expect if thrown correctly?

It won't ne a certain distance. It should be a clean fairly straight flight with very little to no wobble in the flight. I need to break mine back out and give it some field time.

Comets were money today at a tournament. Officially kicking my buzzz out of the bag. I think I can cover all mid range shots with a wasp, glo comet and beat up x comet.

I thought that since it was a fairly light Comet in a fairly understable plastic, the distance potential would be less than, say, if I got a heavier Comet in a Glo Z plastic.

I'm not looking for distance out of it since I am going for a diagnostic disc and to fix my form. But I was thinking of using the distance that I can get with it as a gauge of how well I am throwing.

If I good player can get a certain distance with it thrown flat without any OAT, and someday I can get the same distance with it thrown flat, I must be throwing it well.

That is just my theory and I might be wrong.

So I threw my Z Comet back in the bag recently. I'm determined to learn how to throw it. My form is crap, and I might as well work on it a bit over the winter. What's better than a Comet.

Anyway, I birdied a hole that I've only birdied once ever with a 120 footish throw in the other day. 50 percent power and it just floated ever so gently and landed like a feather in the chains.

Followed it up today with 60 ft or so "putt" after missing a mando. To save par.

What an idiot I am for not throwing this sooner. It's a thing of beauty.
