Roc - never felt right in my hand.

Judge / Warden - I'm not a DD hater because I do enjoy the Marshal but I just can't get a clean release with neither the Judge or the Warden.

Comet - the weird bead didn't bother me but I can get similar flights on other discs that aren't so touchy for me.

Wraith - never found a run that actually matched the flight numbers.

Speed 13 drivers.

I agree, I have that slot covered with a few other molds so not a big deal, but would still love to be able to throw a Comet for some reason.

This is a very real concern. Good Wraiths are out there, but they aren't always easy to find. Most Wraiths I've thrown in the last several years fly something like 11, 4, 0, 3. When the Wraith first came out you'd see the actual flight numbers. For a Wraith to be good you definitely need that bit of turn and glide.

The same could be said for Destroyers too. A lot of Destroyers come out way more overstable than the assigned numbers. Generally, the faster the driver the less likely you'll be to find one that perfectly matches the flight numbers.

The reason I don’t like the Wraith and Destroyer is because of that inconsistency. I don’t want to have to try ten discs hoping one of them flys like I want. Or you find that one that suits you and it gets lost. Good luck finding another one that flies the same.

I feel better about my first post on this thread now that a lot of people don't like Rocs too

pretty much anything discraft. I love the flight of the comet and banger gt, but the plastics just didn't work for me. I felt they were either too slick, or flimsy. The z has the indentations or striations that just didn't feel right in my hand. Not a hater, just a tactile thing.

You can tell plastics from one another by feel alone? Wow.

TL;DR - the Comet is possibly the most polarizing disc in the sport. It's a love hate thing for me too admittedly, but I don't mind the feel.

I probably already responded to this one but here goes again:

I don't like the flight of fresh Rancho Rocs. Sure, everyone likes a beat Roc, but I specifically do not gel with the flight of a freshie to the point that I would prefer not to fiddle with breaking one in.

Unbeaded putting putters - I like the bead. I dunno, seems to fit better in a knuckle. I like Zones and clones of Zones, but not for putting

Most Innova-molded speed 9 offerings advertised as understable - it all started with one of those pop top champ sidewinders that flew stable. Never been able to get these speed 9 things to fly right. Give me a thundie or a firebird, sure.

Not saying I could take a blindfold test to tell what was what, but yeah, some plastics feel better in my hand and some feel worse. And few things are more frustrating than a mold that flies well but is not made in a plastic I like.
