"The Comet Trading Company's finest racing broom. Starting to show its age, yet still an extremely versatile and a great first broom"
—Description[src]

The Comet 260 is a broomstick manufactured by the Comet Trading Company.

History

After her first house match, Skye Parkin received a new Comet 260 from her father.[2]

Ron Weasley believed the Comet 260 looked flashy, but they were not in the same league as the Nimbus 2000.[3]

Two years later, Oliver Wood claimed a Comet 260 would look like "a joke" next to a Firebolt, and after seeing the two brooms in action, Lee Jordan agreed that Cho Chang's Comet was "no match" for Harry Potter's Firebolt.[4]

The Auror and Order of the Phoenix member Nymphadora Tonks owned one of these brooms, and flew with hers to help transport Harry Potter from 4 Privet Drive to 12 Grimmauld Place as part of the Advance Guard.[5]

There was a tantrum during the Gryffindor Quidditch team's tryouts in 1996 that involved a crashed Comet 260 and several broken teeth.[7]
