Awesome man, my name's Mike and the Comet worked for me! Thanks DGCR!

I actually started using a "birdie" grip just for the Comet to keep a more controlled angle, now it's everywhere, I have to stop myself when I grab a driver haha.. Except the Relay.. I can birdie that sucker and pretend it's a mid... anyhow...

Welcome fellow Cometeer! .......
....BA da .dada da dah! and away I go on a frozen rope!

I used to only use a fan grip on drivers and putters for many years. Late last summer and fall, I dedicated myself to throwing everything with a power grip. Took a bit to get used to, especially with comets and putters, but now they are flying even truer to holding their lines and I can throw them in a wider variety of conditions.

No matter the grip you use, once you can throw them smoothly they are pretty much the perfect golf disc.

I fan gripped putters and drivers for literally decades. I switched to all power grips a few years ago; the power grip doesn't aggravate the arthritis in my thumb as much as the fan grip was. My perception was that I gained quite a bit of control with the power grip, but it's not a fair comparison. I had lost quite a bit of control as I struggled with getting a comfortable fan grip, so the control I gained with the power grip might just have gotten me back to where I was with the fan grip.

A few summers ago I watched a video with Drew who showed how he used a 3 finger power grip. I've been using that on my putters and mids, and it works great for me with the Comet.

I took the Comet out for it's first round yesterday morning...very pleased to say the least.

Very pretty looking both in the hand and in flight. Handles power well especially for a Comet. Keep questioning myself on why I bag a 19 instead of a 20 sometimes.

I added one of the '19 Sparkle Zs to my bag yesterday with much success. Domey, stiff, quite stable, paired well with a fairly flat stock ESP and domey understable X. I tried to throw it as much as possible for any shot that didn't require a driver or a putt. Very workable and had surprisingly better glide than I remembered (tested my two when I first got them, Been in the closet since) which was nice. Even held up to open field windy shots well. First time ever Playing the Preserve at AGA Farms (Perkasie, PA) and it was a blast aside from the open 1100' par 5. Boring hole with a giant fairway and zero trees.

Don't recall hearing much about these, anybody else bagging one? I was throwing the pink:

I'm bagging a blue one of these. I found it is now filling my stable slot (used to be a new buzzz or beat wasp). The weird part is I have a super beat buzz that I used for power turnovers, but other that that, the sparkle does everything the buzz normally would do. For me, RHBH 177g, it is not a traditional comet. Doesn't hold the same comet lines that my regular Z does, but it is way more forgiving. I pull this comet out to RUN ace, and regular comets to try for birds.

messed with mine yesterday, definitely more stable than stock z, see a bigger difference in LSS. on full throws there is less wiggle than a normal comet. This is a run I may invest in three or four of just to have that top end comet covered for a while.
