I've thrown the new ones. I like them.

I have a 180 Green that is maybe just slightly less stable than a new 180 old run red comet, but pretty close.

I agree that they are about as soft as the GLO run, noticably softer than Ron Russell SEs and the old Zs. They feel really great in the hand.

Wow. These Z comets are nice. Just played in 20 deg weather with 20-25 mph winds making it feel like 5 deg.

Very grippy without being super flexy. Nice flight. A lot like the new elements, but a bit different. The HS turn is more of a curve instead of a turn.

Nah Darren didn't know...it sounds like Discraft is still curious themselves about what they really want to do with them. Hopefully they've got someone that reads this forum and sees the interest they're generating :)

I might have to shot them an e-mail with a link to this thread. I know Pad is a comet thrower (hes the one that got me into throwing ESP comets) and he is usually the one that answers the e-mails. So you never know

If these (Z) were a mainstay, I think these would go in the pag el permemento

Ditto. FREE THE COMET! Quit jerking us around with the LE ESP and the once every four or five years Z runs. Put it in the regular Z and ESP line-ups. It's a great disc, and a readily available Z Comet would find a spot in my bag.
