The Comet 290 is a broomstick manufactured by the Comet Trading Company.


It was relatively new around the summer of 1995, and can do nought to sixty miles per hour (in ten seconds, from context) with a decent tailwind according to Which Broomstick.[2]

The witch Penelope Fawley was gifted one of these brooms by her mother before she was imprisoned in Azkaban, being one of the few things she had to remember her mother by. It was thus inscribed with her maiden name "Padgett".[1]
