So with all the hype of the stable comets (which I love), what's a great neutral to understable comet? I use an X comet but it's gotten so rashy and doesn't hold up very long. Just a flat z? Big Z? Or take the time to work in an esp?

Find the "older" run of ESP Comets. The run that's after the limited edition run but before the swirly ESP. They molded up flatter and are on the understable side. That goes for any Comet, really. If you find one with a low dome it will start out less stable.

Big Z or any flatter Z will be straighter. Even a good bit of the new esp ones are straight right out of the box. You just have to look for the ones with lower domes on them

I have maybe 10 of these 2013 CryZtal Comets and I throw them in field practice.
They are between X's and Z's in stability.
Unfortunately, they are low on the glide potential.

On a more pleasant note, if anyone wants to buy them off me, I'd sell...

If nothing else I am going to see if I can get a limited run of this stamp done sometime this year

I had a few of those. That orange one to be specific.

That run of plastic (late 90's) was unbelievable for its time.

You could describe it but no one would believe you...

Everytime I read the title on this thread it makes me think MJ is in a relationship with a girl named comet. Wonder what kind of profession a girl named comet would be in?..
