The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I'm looking for a turn over disc with a little more distance than my Wolf. It seems like a lot of people dig the Comet, but I'd like to hear what you all think of these discs or if you feel there is even a better turn over mid out there.


Thanks and Peace!

well, I throw both, but then again not exactly....I used to throw the comet, but I switched and throw an Ace Race meteor, which is what I have heard called a modified comet. I also throw the Z-glide. Both are great turn over discs, but the glide seems to be more under-stable. They are both rated the same at -0.5. The difference is that the glide is a long range driver and has more speed and distance, whereas the meteor and comet are more true mid-ranges and slower. A comet is rated at 0.0. Just look at the edges of the discs..... So for me, I go with a glide for distance turn-overs and a comet or a meteor for shorter turn over drives or straight runs.
The comet to me is one of the greatest discs ever made, you can use it as a turnover disc pretty easily...but you can also use it ans your primary mid in a lot of cases...just cause its under-stable its not JUST a flip disc.

easily the most controllable disc in my bag!
I agree. You can definitely turn a Comet any time you wish, but unless you are throwing into a head wind, you can throw it hard with some hyzer and it'll flatten out and glide forever. Strangely enough, the same is true of the Stratus, which most people use only for ensured turnovers. If you throw it with hyzer and not too hard, the Stratus will glide a long, long way. But don't try it into a head wind.
The Z Hawk is a great option too.
The glide is a cool disc, the comet is a legend. I played catch @ 100-200 ft with the comet with a buddy who taught me just a taste of the comet. It is a phenomenal disc when learned, and a hard disc to master. Well worth the effort. It is like a long range rattler for me. It is a beautiful thing to watch. Hole 13 (old hole A) at Kensington was a favorite of mine to watch good players throw a comet (rhbh). It is one of those gems of flight that makes flying discs so intriguing.
I have a "D" Hawk, but I've searched all over for a Z Hawk without any luck. What kills me, is I had a Z Hawk a few years back and gave it to a buddy....damn!
I mainly want a anhyzer disc that doesn't come back at the end. Will the Comet hold a ahyzer line without coming back? "Hard to master"? How come?
My experience exatly with that set of discs.
Yes it will. So will the coyote with enough snap. Comet is an awesome disc.
I didn't realize how much I loved the stratus until I lost it. I don't use it much on my home course, but any time I go into the woods, I use it often.

I was going to commend this disc to Rescue as well. It is one of the most "effortless" discs in my bag. It allows me to throw nice and easy and still get 250 ft (very valuable down tight corridors). It's the disc I pull out when I'm pinned by a tree as well.

If I'm throwing a shot that has to go right at all costs, I'm throwing a stratus. I pulled the glide and the meteor for this one (though they too are great discs). My experience is with the pro d version very beaten in.
Hard to master because it CAN become a 350+ sweeping anhyzer disc with touch control. Mere mortals marvel at the wonders of a comet.
