When I threw a mixed bag I would pair a stable kc roc and that was a near perfect compliment. Now that I’m all Discraft it’s been a little trickier. The Wasp seems to be the closest to the rock but that kc roc had a very similar feel as well. The drone I’m using doesn’t feel anything like the comet, is faster and very overstable but I’m really liking it.

Try a DGA Aftershock. Flight closer to a Roc but feels different because it's beadless. They are straighter than the Wasp but not so much that they are a buzzz clone

Aftershock is an oddball. I liked it but when I tried it; it was less high speed stable than a Buzzz but more fade. Not what I was looking for at the time.

I find them to have HSS/LSS between a buzzz and wasp. Kind of like a lightly worn DX Roc. They are in and out of the bag though, which probably says more about me than the actual disc. discisfinecomrade.jpg

Thats what I wanted out of them. This was very early run sparkles I was throwing. I wanted a Buzzz with more fade to compliment my comets

MJ, whenever you have time , is it possible for you to do an In-the-bag for the 2020 season?

I'll believe it when I see it! I can imagine it's a daunting task, as there are probably always discs entering and leaving the bag, alongside the tried and true discs that are always there. Maybe just pick a good tournament and focus on what you're throwing just for that weekend?

I remember stalking your bag during the 2017 PFDO. You were on lead card (Jomez, I think) for all 3 rounds, so we got to see your bag pretty well as you faced Moraine. Three different Comets, the famed purple Banger, Mantis, and Undertaker were some that I remember off the top of my head.

Most importantly, happy new year MJ! Keep up the awesomeness.

MJ, what are you throwing when the wind is up when you'd normally throw your comets? I find I have a hard time controlling them in the wind.
