The Comet is a long range medium fast straight approach disc. Its most notable feature is probably the longest glide of any golf disc, certainly the longest of any I've thrown. It holds whatever line you put onto it (left, right, forehand or backhand!) and will go exactly where you throw it. This is a blessing and curse at the same time, since wayward throws can end up getting punished by being a long way off line. Unlike Rocs etc. it can be a little hard to weight the length of your throw with a Comet but it comes with practice. But, if you have the control, a Comet can get you a long way with incredible accuracy. Comets make pretty good discs for beginners, especially golf beginners who play Ultimate as they feel similar to larger discs like Ultrastars. Heavy weight Comets are also pretty good in the wind though the lighter sizes may get pushed around a little with the huge glide. Personaly, I think they're an excellent and often underrated disc and always ensure I have at least one with me when playing.
