New Z from this past year is really nice though. The swirl glo MJ comet is good too.
The 4 year old Z is the best translucent plastic I have ever thrown. Nice and stiff, it's what I judge all others by.

The 2019 was both slicker and more flexible... Although I am finding that this year's is loosing it slickness as it farther out-gasses, even though it isn't being played wirh.

If we include how it's aged my favorite plastic ever is the Z used for my opaque 4 point Z predators. It feels better than my Opaque 11x Teebirds and is holding up better than CE these days.

I just really love Z plastic. I like stiff plastic and Z is virtually indestructible. My 4-5 year old Z Glide still almost looks like new and my new Z Sol looks like it's going to be the same way.

I'm a big fan of Z, especially the weird trippy haha grippy Z in yellow... but here to throw some love down for my orange meatball big Z. It's breaking in beautifully.

Amazing at 150' + range!!!

When did Discraft release the Tour Series 2019 Swirly ESP Comet? Like January 2019?

Only ones I can find on websites are max weight 177+ and dull. No lower weights or better color bursts.

Even one from 2005?

Was there an MJ Tour Series in both 2018 and 2019, two different runs? Or has the 2018 MJ Tour Series just continued into 2019?

Confused. I thought there was just one bottom-stamped Tour Comet, and that it came out in 2018...

I believe that Discraft has produced Michael Johansen Tour Series Comets for at least 3 years now.
The 2017s were in Z plastic.
The 2018s were in a glow ESP plastic.
The 2019s are a bottom stamped swirly ESP.

Which one of you addicts snagged that last xout MJ that was on Infinite last night? I was going to buy it this morning and she gone.
