I bought two more ESP Comets with my store credit over the weekend. A bright pink one with a white stamp and a black one with a purple stamp. Didn't really need them, but they felt a lot like the swirly '19 MJ's, so they should be a nice stable to slightly overstable comet.

The Cryztal Comet I got from DiscJunkie is the perfect Comet. Little flip/turnover to it and the plastic feels way better than newer ESP or Z does, and infinitely better than Z from 4ish years ago.

With 1/2 of those being '18 MJs, and I'm still working on getting my first one beat in...

I might have to post an updated family picture of Comets when my last order for the year comes in

I definitely have a problem with buying comets when I see them. I have way more than any player would ever need.

My comet stack may be one of my shortest stacks. However it has been more than 7 years since I lost a comet, so I never really feel like I need more than a couple.

Aw man, the thought of losing one of my Comets gives me the chills.
I guess I’m in the same boat as you: I stockpiled the LEs when they were released (because I stupidly thought they would be limited haha) but I’m still using the same 3 I’ve always used. I have about 20 of those LEs and I consider that a lifetime supply.

That would last me a lifetime. I stocked up on them a bit (owned about 10 or 12) but eneded up going back to my Zs.
Enough of us thinking they would be limited and stocked up is probably why enough sold to justify production.

Good run to stock up on.. I've got three. And I'm jealous. Got a couple seconds and a first run 172 LE that's beautiful but kinda flippy. Hounded Matt from Snap Discs to sell it to me, he finally did after my lone (other guy didn't pay ace pot) Ace at provincials. With a Force at 280' haha. How my game has changed.

What's bad about the plastic from that time frame? I think that's when I picked up my Z Comet. It's a bit stiff and slightly pearly, but seems alright to me.

Maybe it's a timeframe right after that, mine isn't pearly, just a dayglo yellow. Personally I find it's not particularly grippy and just doesn't feel good in the hand. I have a similar problem with a lot of the stiff jolly launcher Champ as well as some of the newer ESP.

New Z from this past year is really nice though. The swirl glo MJ comet is good too.
