These special edition Comets are apparently made of the same plastic as the elite line of discs (the XL, XS etc.). Whatever, they have a nicer feel to them that the normal Comets and appear to be very durable. I have a 174g one and despite it having to crash through bushes and twigs, it appears to be totally unscathed. My only criticism is the hotstamp, which is rather plain (like so many special edition series discs)..... but then again, we're all here to throw discs, not look at them aren't we?! Flightwise, they seem to be very similar if not identical to the normal versions and I look forward to being able to use mine for many tournements to come!

My Review:
The Ron Russell Signature Series Comet is a moderately slow, evenly stable midrange disc. Understable at higher speeds and evenly stable at slower speeds this disc has excellent glide with very little low speed fade. I'd say the distance on this disc is somewhere between a Roc and an Aviar Driver. The Comet has probably the best glide I've seen in a disc. Thrown hyzer it will flatten out and fly straight. Thrown flat it will give turn slightly but straighten out and glide straight. Thrown anhyzer it will hold a right curve until it begins to slow down where it will straighten out and glide. This disc would make an excellent beginner driver and most beginners should find it will give more distance and control than the faster, smaller diameter drivers out there. The Comet is a solid, accurate, versatile midrange. This disc should go far when thrown with a tailwind but players may have trouble with this disc turning over with a headwind or crosswind and may favor the heavier weights or a more overstable midrange such as a Roc or MRX. Also of note, the Signature Series Plastic is quite resiliant and feels similar to that used on the earlier Elite Pro models (XL/X2/MRX/APX).
