I threw a flattish Z and semi domey 3rd run ESP in field practice with mild constant winds to moderate gusts in 45F. Pretty normal results. It took me forever to get warmed up and loose. Around an hour and a half. Some sleep deprivation and fatigued body. I tried different grips when the normally cleanly releasing grip didn't work. I didn't have enough upper back mobility with the shoulder blade hitting the vertical upper back muscle. Anny most times. I threw other stuff for an hour and a half before retrying and two finger Jenkins style thumb with a lot of tightness either early or late pinch worked at least as well as my normal mid and putter driving grip. That is power grip loose fingers with the index finger almost not inside the disc ans even looser than the other fingers and a late pinch. I was getting consistently stronger grip than ever and so far my arm ain't hurting bad so there's progress. The wind didn't bother me at all. Both Comets flew beautifully but especially the two finger grip gave early slips to the left. Not surprising in these temps.
The difference between me being off and on were too great for consistency and being able to compete with the Comet so it can't be a work horse disc other than for annies overall. For days when i'm on it is much more versatile and not as hard penalizing disc except for range control. Given how much the distance changes with throwing low. I don't like to gamble with discs and even in calm conditions my physical capabilities vary way too much from day to day so i'm too gimp for this disc for anything other than utility disc. If i were in better shape and didn't need to warm up so long and wouldn't cool down as fast as i do it would be a much better disc for me. i'm not pro enough for this disc considering how i got comparison Coyote, different Squalls, Buzzz, Leopards Champ and Star, GL River and Z Stalker to fly for different distances but straight and more predictably. Despite the wind. Well the Squalls were a little on the iffy side at times too but not as much. Overall i was getting a better grip than ever and more pull from the fingers and Blake said that is wrong
I just am not sure how to get push if it ain't finger spring and i haven't tried it yet at full power. Too much rounds to little field form practice. Today was equipment testing. Anyway i couldn't get my Star Leo to flip and that is new. It fades out earlier than my a little flipping champ and is shorter.Still 360'. Champ to 370'. The champ flipped less than normal. I got normal flip form the GL River because it faded out on me in mostly rear winds and i wasn't able to get any good enough rips for best D with it so i was pushing trying to kill it and probably overdid it which often leads to a little wrist roll.
Missing with the Comets sans slips felt and resulted in what over committing to Rivers at 105 % power were doing. No joy for either disc. There comes my problem with many other discs than the Comet too. I am crappy and busted enough to not need discs that turn back and bite me. I had the best grip day ever with more disc pivot than ever and still so many Comet shots were off enough to kill the scores at least in tight places. And that is where the Comet shines so the main purpose was too severely compromised. If you don't count being a great diagnostic tool to be the main function for that disc. Also the Axis suffers from needing too perfect of a throw for me to execute always. AKA required skill and current ability level. What good is knowing and at times performing to requirements when at other times you can't make the shots? That is forcing me to use other discs as mainstays.
II don't recall carrying Comets for rounds this season. And i love the disc. Not so much when it throws tantrums (that is me messing up). Still it is an awesome disc and i'm also saddened by the Axis and to a great degree the Warship with their superb glide carrying them off too far on anything but great throws and not being able to rely on myself enough to use them all the time
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.
