It also says that the Comet is 21.8cm but we know that isn't true either.

It feels fine in my hand and i'm sensitive to steeper slants.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

It's not? I guess I never noticed. so what size is the Giant and the Comet??

EDIT: I went to my car trunk and measured several different discs

Z Comet (2-3 years old): 21.8
ESP Comet (recent run): 21.8
DX Roc (5 years old): 21.5
DX Rocs (this year): 21.5
GL Striker (eagle stamp): 21.5
TM River: 21.5
Z Buzzes (3x, 2 years old): 21.5
Ti Buzzz: 21.4

Oddly the Comet was one of the only ones on target. I measured some of my Innova fairways and they were coming up under 21cm. shrug.

My Z-comets, 1-2 year old ones, other of them is 22, the other is 22.1. My freshly bought Midnight Z is between 21.9 and 22. My third run ESP is just a smidgen over 22. A year old X is 21.9. I had a Z I lost that was 22.2.

My 1-2 year old Z Comet is 22.15, my ESP Comets are 22.1 and for reference my Axes are 21.8, actually conforming to the PDGA specs.

If only the Comet hits the mark and everything else is coming up short, I'd wager you're measuring them wrong somehow.

It probably was the scale/ruler I was using. I only paid $1 for it. the level of accuracy is negligible especially on the metric side (we don't really use metric in the US and A). so if we say i had a 3mm margin of error then that would put everything else on target and the comets at 22.1 so then I'm getting the same as you guys. interesting.

So what are you guys measuring Giants at?

I do? Ummmm, I'll go take a look, haven't seen it in ages though, thought you had it...

EDIT: Orange TP one with a Vipunen stamp? Found it.

EDIT2: Looks to be 21.3cm.

This thing BOMBS! It is 8/10 (no real wear) 173 cloudy pink vip. It's just like my all time fave driver, a night shift boss. I'm gonna try and get some twins and see if they are all like it.

Are the nightshift Bosses more LSS and shorter than normal Bosses?

The dark blues were like a speed 13 PD. They were the most consistent, longest boss (maybe even d driver) I've thrown. I was getting 470 a lot with them and touched 500 a couple times with them. Once with Bradley Walker there. When they started selling for $100, I sold mine off
