Used to love my comet when i was a beginner. got a 178 Z. but now i can't get to to hold any line whatsoever. too flippy. if i drive with it it anhyzers itself straight into the ground about 100 feet away! too much high speed turn for me.

I used to be a big Comet fan, but when I got better distance, I couldn't throw it without flipping it.
I have gone to throwing Rocs for their stability, and decreasing the molds. I use a Rancho, San Marino and Ontario for most of my mid-range throws.
After reading this thread, I probably need to take out that Comet and see if it's worth revisiting

I wanted to like the Comet because it seemed like a great disc for me on paper...I use a light touch and so on. But I couldn't get used to it (I have a Z). It feels like a big floppy domey piece of crap to me. Every once in awhile I pull it out and try it again. So I stick with my Buzzz and Meteor.

I love me some comet. Right now I've got a TP and an X comet in the bag to compliment my rocs and I've been throwing the comet more than the rocs lately.

Frank, what weights? I've only my tp's are heavy. Are you using a light x to compliment? What's the difference in their roles?

I did watch a DGM episode last night that had Michael Johanson (not sure on spelling) doing some pretty cool **** with a Comet. Made me wonder if I should pull it out of the mothballs again. I was pretty impressed that that guy did so well and seemed to throw 3-4 discs for the vast majority of his shots.

Agreed. Thought the Comet would be great, but it is too flippy for me. I prefer the Buzzz.

^Same here, I was kinda glad I didnt like it just cause it was so oversized it was a pain to take it in/out of my bag.

Sounds like its you more than the disc... go out and use either a putter or Comet only to get your form back in check. I know plenty of power throwers who use this disc without any problems.

I think the comet rocks...I just like other stuff more.

I like most mids I've tried.
