I think the Proxy is more 'comet-like' - I did not like the spin, but that's me - its the weird rim and grip - I cannot stand the rounded top - Proxy is the Straightest (slightly understable) floaty awesome approach disc of this decade

The closest MVP/Axiom disc, other than hand feel, to a Comet is the Anode. It still doesn't have the low speed glide of a Comet though.

The closest I have thrown, low speed, is a Polecat. High speed is the Banger GT.

Caveat: I have not thrown the APX, nor probably will I, as it is compared to the feel of an Aviar.

I can get behind that I think never thrown an APX I thought it was more stable than a magnet but that sounds acceptable..

I don't care about hand feel haha I care about flight.. And no the Proxy is great but not the right answer it likes to fly straight too well.

Polecat is an acceptable answer for discussion the Anode is not, it is also likely to fly straight even with a little anhyzer.. Too much Aviar not enough Comet.

I also think the Zeppelin? Is too midish I am instantly curious about it I saw F. Howl did a review on Infinite discs and it sounds interesting but I haven't thrown it.

Because so many putters when worked in can fly that dead straight line and take all the power you have. And when beat in can do that slow turnover for the whole flight.

But the Comet does it best in the wider diameter mid class.
Definitely. There's lots that I have beat into shape too, tree by tree Z Comet and Z Spin it's a very similar break in.. They are both great out of the box and better after six months. Both fly great with clean power and hold the line. It's important too that the putter has as much capability for hyzer, anhyzer,glide and power resistance as the Comet on a flat line just shorter range...

I was going to say Polecat too. It takes all my "Comet but slower" shots.

I haven't had luck with the Reef (same mold as APX, if I'm not mistaken), but probably got a D-line dud. I enjoyed watching Brad Schick throw some amazing shots with his old APXs, but they looked beefier than Comet lines.

The Pure is another possibility, but it's a mid-putter to the Comet's putter-mid. Maybe it's like a super beefy Comet.

This is my vote as well. I also agree with slowplastic. The beauty of the Comet is that it gives you putter precision with wide midrange glide and range.

To throw throwaenvy a bone the Spin is absolutely a very Comet-like putter though.

I've only thrown a Comet a couple times. The one I threw was very comparable to my Champion Stingray.

So when I want that sort of flight at a shorter distance I go for a somehwhat beat in DX Aviar P & A.

If the Spin works that well for the OP, that's great.

Maybe the Comet is the Spin of midranges.

If so, it was certainly ahead of its time

So if APX is out of production does that mean the Spin is the front runner by default? Haha

How different is the Spin from the APX?
