as we all know, we grow, form gets better and discover initial impressions may have been wrong. Tangent is great...but it doesn't power down as well. This is why i stopped throwing it.

I won't throw light comets anymore for workhorse duty anyway like i was back then either. Way different animal.

There were some other discs I thought of from reading forum or talking to others. Please tell me if I’m wrong I’m going by what others said about the discs:

-Alias - this was a contender but seeing as it’s short for a mid and that I drive fast putters (Proxy and Envy), sounds like there would be too much overlap.
-Mako3: sounds like the right type of flight but maybe a little faster than I want and less glide; also likely good amount of overlap with the Proxy
-Fuse: too understable and finicky
-And a few others that after reading threads didn't seem to fit the bill: Squall (too stable), Claymore, others?

Would a Proxy and Comet pair well together? I realize there would be some overlap there too.

Thanks all!
The Comet is the best disc every made...Ever.

Having said that, I don't throw it as much as I should, simply as it does have a higher skill cap than most stable mids.

As far as what the Comet pairs well with, I bag 175g Z with both the Neutron Alias and the Recycled Fuse.
The Alias is shorter but resists torque well, plus it makes a great circle +2 putter. The Fuse is a bit faster and is a tad understable, very useful when the ceiling is super low.

Add in an slightly OS mid, like a Roc3 or Buzz and you are set for all of the midrange shots.

The only thing that I cannot do with the Comet is putt. Backhand, sidearm, roller, overhand, turbo, whatever, the Comet does well.
