I just bought a Comet in titanium plastic. I haven’t thrown a Comet before today. Would the Titanium be on the more stable side? Less? In the first few throws, it turned ‘too much’. I have read it’s finicky, so I have work to do on my end to find the right power.

With comets, titanium usually falls in between normal esp plastic and z plastic in terms of stability.
And yes the comet can be finicky to learn, but it teaches you how to have a clean release and how to use the disc to do work for you

If you want a nice stable comet with a little more "forgiveness", I recommend picking up an MJ tour series Comet. It's the best run I've thrown and I can really lay into with power (with proper form of course) and it handles the extra torque really well.

I was looking for the ‘Comet experience’. Threw a bit more today on the course. Wow the Comet goes straight and sneaky far. Seems to only fade if I’m not anticipating fade, otherwise, flat release is straaaaaaaaight. Anhyzers aren’t giving any love quite yet. Fun disc though.

Edit: to clarify, anhyzer turn shots fade/flex at the end, but straight shots do not fade. That was the oddity today.

Well, I’m going to go ahead and double post, MJ can you give some insight on your thoughts on spin? You’ve talked quite a bit about spin control, but I haven’t seen any real details. What shots require more or less spin? Do you see it a key to getting distance with less effort etc... thanks!

Congratulations on the win at the Clash, Mike. Looks like it was a tight race for the top spot. Bogey-free third round did the trick, eh? *Never* bet against MJ at Hornets Nest.
