Or maybe I will just work on my form a bit with it.
If you want it to fly like when MJ throws his Comet, then you can't watch it fly.

But then how will you know if it flew like his?

The best part about throwing a comet well is watching it fly!

Good thing it flies slow enough to take in the whole view

Took out two ESP Comets (pre 2018, post LE runs) that are both flat. A yellow and pink one, both the same weight. The pink is pretty OS for a Comet, and the yellow has some turn. Not a bad pair to start using at all lol. I just ordered a 2018 ESP Comet to see what they are like.

Comparing my post- LE, pre- 2018 flatty ESP to a current run Z, the ESP does have noticeably higher overstability and PLH.

I pick up a mj esp “glow” recently. Great disc.
Definitely more stability than the glow z I lost a while back. It’s flight reminds me a lot of my proxy, but longer. Pretty decent hss, definitely bites back at the end of its flight, where the z had a neutral finish. Holds a hyser pretty well. And great distance potential.
I suspect I’ll have to get a less stable compliment, but we’ll see how this one breaks in.
Any experience with how these comets wear?
