What I obviously notice is that my glo comet is very domey whereas my z is flat to slightly concave. Is this a common feature of z comets? I bag the glo to complement my pin ghosts but i dont want to carry 2 comets due to space. Plus its snowy outside so i dont want to throw my white glo until it dries up.
They have a tendency of making both domey runs and flat runs of discs. The domey runs of comets are normally a little more stable

Right off the bat it would probably show issues with forehand form. Crystal's probably will take a bit of breaking in to show things backhand, except for late releases. Won't take you long though

Thanks MJ. Just wondering, have you thrown any molds from your fellow touring pros that you'd like to see discraft make? Does not having a stable "speed 12" make a difference for you since you throw a wider rim nuke and crank? I guess a force would compare to a destroyer, however even if destroyers are beefy id argue they're more stable than overatable.

I don't really throw much of the really wide rim stuff. Only bring them in for certain types of courses and conditions. Biggest rim I normally carry is the crank

Is that why Discraft started making Ringers in Soft X? Do you and Nate get hit up by the factory for input on new runs, molds, plastic blends, etc?

Damn that's a lot of reading. Must be cold where you are. It's to much fun keeping this thread going on here.

As far as the comets go I usually don't do them until around April
