I have one. It's very pretty but flexible and super slick. It flew like a Z with less glide. It's in my collection but not worth throwing as stock options fly better.

i.e. wall hangers

There was a sparkle Z last year that I feel the same way about the flight of. Really pretty disc; flies OK. I have a bunch of Comets I like the flight of more. If I had to throw it, it would be fine. I don't have to throw it, though.

I thought the sparkle was Cryztal... it sure did not have any of the normal Z haze.

Never mind, I'll take your memory over mine on this issue.

Butts, I was hoping for a comet with some fade and get rid of all the other mids. I guess we'll see how the 2020 mold flies

I'm a big fan of riding horses and listening to classical piano, but I'd never ask a horse to play piano. Just hang on to an overstable mid to pair with the Comets, otherwise you are going to waste a lot of time looking for a piano-playing horse.

Max weight Ti is going to be your best bet. They have the same HSS of Z but a bit more fade... but beat in super slow. They are stock so you don't have to wait for special runs.

Tour Glo Swirl is what you were wanting, but that was 2018. If the 2020 fly like you want, better buy a tall stack of them as that Discraft may not make that stability again for years.

I know we've hashed this out before in one of the previous pages. Do you mean the 2019's? My 2018's are flatter and noticeably straight flying. My 2019's have a higher shoulder and more dome and have a reliable fade on the end of their flight.

2018


2019

Nah, he was talking about the 2018's. I think there is a general disagreement about those as I've had a lot of people tell me they are beefy and mine aren't. So I really try to avoid talking about them since mine don't seem to fly like other people say they do.

My 2019's are still sitting around, never been thrown. I have a lot of Comets.

My experience is the same as yours, I've had 3 2018s, lost one, throw another and have a backup, all 3 are on the US side and flatter. I have 1 2019 it's domeyer and more stable.

I really struggled with the 2018's because I tried to get them to fly like a beefy mid and it wasn't working. Once I got it out of my head that it was going to fade and started paying attention to how it actually flies, it's been a workhorse in my bag.
