Novas are more stubborn in my experience. Comets can shape lines better, whereas you can hammer on a nova as hard as you like and it won't budge off the line you put it on. Comets are definitely glidier too.

I would say the glide and the low speed stability is very close but the Nova is not as high speed stable.

Or perhaps I have issues with OAT with the Nova; it is super deep dish and it is hard for me to grip.

Well you know I can get behind that... I tend to bag discs that I can throw fairly flat and get the flights I want.. It seems Cometesque now that you bring it up, everything else has been built off the Comet as an anchor.. It's the only non gyro disc I always bag.

My bag isn't all Comet like though but it holds the Center midrange utility, I refer to my Tangent as a wind or steep downhill Comet.. In my head anyways.. Comet, Envy, Inertia is always my competitive choice for 3 Disc rounds.

How about the Inertia as the DD Comet?

Not enough glide. I am with Streets, it's the Heat.

X, TP or good esp cyclones (domey ones). Those are one of the most neutral drivers theres been. They were my step up from the buzzz or comet for years.
