Yeah this is definitely the question. Also to factor in is do you throw speed 7ish fairways or the 9ish control drivers, as I find I can hit those low ceiling straight tunnels powered down a bit easier with the Leo/FD type speed 7 fairways to mimic a low ceiling mid if necessary.

If your Comet turns, then pairing with something like a Roc3 works because it can handle all the straight/wind/hyzer/flex lines, and can do low ceiling a little bit better. If your Comet is pretty straight then you can add either a low line drive Buzzz style mid or something like a Verdict that is both more stable and fast for a lot of variety, as a straight Comet can take care of a lot of milder lines.

Wasp is perfect for this imo.

Thankfully they make DX and KC Rocs. I bag an ESP and Z Comet, a few DX Rocs and a Z Wasp. Definitely some overlap but every mid line is covered and they all have a similar feel.

Depends on your style and how much fade you are needing. Stability-wise I surround my comet with a big z zone, z wasp, and sometimes a z hornet. Anything faster than that I’m using a neutron resistor for tweener mid-fairway stability.

that's what I thought too, then I gave the Aftershock a try. Better fit next to the Comet, imo.

I pair a beefy Pinnacle Ghost with my Comet and it works great. There are quite a few beaded midrange molds that have reliable stable flights and similar hand feel, and IMO really any of them can pair well with a Comet.

LOL sounds like we are discussing wine...
"a sensible, stable, firm blend; pairs well with Wasp."

Well, if there has ever been a disc worthy of praise like a fine wine, it is the Comet.

I've been pairing them with Sentinels for years, but like you said there really isn't anything magic about that pairing. It is one of several discs that would work for that.
