I suppose i am a dirty bastard then :(, ima try and get a few more because this one is fuckin perfect. Perfect dome, great stability. Flies like a worn in ESP, ive had some Z's that were a bit flatter on top and were not nearly as HSS as ithink comets should be, and this one is money :)

Is it just me, or do I see a disturbing lack of x comets in stores... what's happening at DC? Anyone got a clue?

No clue about X Comets, but an observation about ESPs.

It was supposed to rain today (it didn’t :) ), so I carried a 168ish ESP Comet instead of my usual 163ish Z Comet. The ESP definitely has more LSS – the Z Comet usually holds a line, but the ESP flexed out of a turn (and OB :( ) on what I thought was a perfect drive.

Maybe I just haven’t hit enough trees with the ESP Comets.

Man oh man....Midnight Z-Comet's are still the bomb. If you are a comet thrower, I highly recommend picking one of these up.

Discraft can't produce enough discs to meet demand at the moment and they're moving into a bigger facility soon to make sure they can make enough discs. They just received a huge order and are cranking out discs 20 hours a day (the machines require some down time) but still can't keep up. I looked at a wholesale order sheet that describes what discs they can currently ship and more than half out them were blacked out (unavailable). Almost nothing was available max weight.

I'm sure they're still producing X Comets, they just can't make enough discs to meet demand at the moment.

They are so straight with almost zero turn or fade. It flies like what a comet should fly. An X always seems to have more turn than I would expect. The Z and ESP always have way more fade than I would expect out of a comet. A sponsored Discraft player this weekend even commented on how straight it flew and finished, while I was throwing it for the ace fund throw off.

Would you be willing to part with one or two of those...in the 175-176 range?

...And ordered another one from DD to get a max weight one...funnily enough it was about 30 cents cheaper total to order from there than from a "local" internet retailer in finland.

My Midnight Comet has been in the bag now for over a month now and it is still flying great for me. It is now nicknamed the birdie whisperer. If you are a comet thrower, I highly recommend getting 1 or 2 of these. By the way, I did get a couple of those purple comets and they are a touch more overstable than the Midnight's.

So I was recently reading this thread and then came across a used very flat, recent run fuschia Z Comet at PIAS today and had a hilarious time trying to process information- wait is this like the purple ones they are talking about... are they supposed to be flat or domey, etc. Needless to say, I bought it and am curious to see how it will test against my trustworthy Z Buzzz/Opto Fuse combo....

The flatter comets aren't as stable as the domey runs. They are straight to slightly understable in flight. They are a nice compliment to a buzzz though.

For future reference(And this is my opinion):
Domey Comet = Straight to ever so slightly overstable
Flat Comet = Straight to ever so slightly understable
