I bag both Ti and Z
I totally agree I'll sacrifice a bit of glide for bump in stability. Truly the amount of glide difference between my domey stiffer comets and my flatter softer comets really isn't that significant to stress over. I missed out on the TI comets, hoping they get run again!

Comet update: took my 171g ESP Comet out to the course yesterday. I'm getting the slight S flight I am looking for out of it - I would call it 4/5/-.5/.5

At this point I'm bagging:

174g Lucid Verdict
175g FLX Buzzz
171g ESP Comet
175g X Comet

I think at this point I would throw another ESP comet in when my current ESP beats in past that slot. Or possibly a more stable Comet plastic.

One stop shop with the comet, I have a Z glo and in that plastic it is perfect when it's sweetened just right. Any line I out it on it holds but really it's sweet for flipping and watching it turn for ya. Perfect 280' annys that get there effortlessly. Fuggin beautiful thing it is.

Just picked up a 177 X Comet, and man, this thing has the most ridiculous flashing I've ever seen. It downright hurts to hold it. I thought Trilogy discs were bad, but it feels like there's a steak knife on the bottom of this bead.

I've had one or two lately with a little more flashing than normal. I just removed it. Feels comfy and still flies like a comet.

I got a few MJ Z Comets recently and I was thinking they had the least flashing on any disc I've gotten in a while. Silky smooth on all edges.

I lost my favorite Comet; fly dyed Z. I still have my Ti comet in the bag but I need another heavy Z. Guess off to the disc golf store I go

I have lost or misplaced or had( stolen) at least 4 comets in various plastics, I'm going to give it one more chance with a glow comet purchase. Maybe I was not meant to throw these.

The glow comet will be your lucky charm. And you'll love it.
