Just find any Comet with a bigger dome and you'll find a more stable one than current ESP Glo. They're not common though. The 3rd run LE ESP was one of them, and no ESP has molded up like that since. There are some Z comets starting to pop up with a big dome and I've been slowly snagging them for the backup pile. You can rip them as hard as you want flat and they will stay true.

Same with some of the one from the 2000's. I have used my moms Domed X or Elite X Comet as one can rip on the disc as well as use it for the approach shot as it is such a disc for that due to Comets in a non Z plastic having more glide then the low dome discs. Never thought about how the Z plastic would work in high or low dome as an approach disc/windy day putter but would work for the driving putter slot if one does not want to use a putter for the driving putter type of shot.

I however use a Star Shark the 2016 hi dome model you had to brake in or the old Pro Shark both 175 grams to use in the same place as a domey X plastic or ESP Comet would be used for a disc in the approach slot up to as close as 37-40 feet to about 75 feet or so. Any further and I am using a Shark 3.

Being one of the top rated putters, why isn't there a MJ signature Ringer? It's very underrated and seldom mentioned or advertised by Discraft. I love mine for upshots especially in wooded courses.

Oh hell yes. Retro stamped comets on newer plastic blends do real well I bet!

Yes please, the Saturn stamp is by far my personal favorite! I have a nice little stash of the originals and one of the pearly Big-Z comets they ran that stamp on when they were first released in that blend.

It would be fantastic if you could work some magic and bring back something similar to the old tournament pro baseline plastic, X-line is nice but just doesn't compare to the grip of the original blend. Swirly tournament pro comets with a MJ signature saturn stamp... please take my money now. Those would be a great compliment to the 2017 MJ Z/Ti blend comets.

I'd buy at least one - simply because I don't have that stamp in my collection.

So probably 3 or more
