I would rather like my disc slightly broken in to beat to hell than like my disc new to slightly broken in...



edit:
in retrospect I suppose i could explain better.
I would rather throw a disc that fies how I like anywhere between "slightly broken in" to "beat to hell." than to throw a disc that flies good out of the box and flies ok slightly broken in, and then becomes in predictable.

better?

lock-off wrote:so i sank a 200 ft approach with this thing today. it was slightly elevated, and i threw a nice smooth hyzer that swept right into the money spot on the basket. i do like it for touch approaches, but it seems to work well for tunnel shots and straight approaches that are short as well.

u shoulda seen me doing flips and somersaults out in the fairway im sure it was funny. people were cheering from 2 different holes!

That was you, I think I was a few holes behind you.

Best as I can figure from other comparisons (and experimenting with a roc this summer):
elite z wasp =champ roc
elite z buzz = new dx roc
not sure about x
new D buzz = nicely beat in roc

beat up d buzz=nice right turn disc, havent found a comparison, maybe a new stingray?

I didn't have an x long enough to draw conclusions but mine was beating in and flew like my Pro D when it was new. I don't remember if I lost it or traded it.

so ive been throwin this skeeter a lot and the dx plastic is TOUGH on this thing. ive drilled trees, no change in flight or even knicks or scratches. its kinda freakin me out how tough it is. and the fact that its the straightest thing out there. very comparable to a d buzzz but the grip is way better. who's used this besides the one guy that reviewed it?

I dont know about anyone else but my beat Roc will only flatten from around 75 degrees of hyzer at 85% power anything less and it fades right/turns over depending on how much less. My seasoned Rocs require 20 degrees of hyzer to flatten at 85% power, Broken in Rocs need about 40 to flatten and slightly used means thrown flat/slight hyzer - will hold flat the entire way. For me new Z Buzzzs (domey) fly like my slightly used Rocs, X-Buzzz flies the same but breaks in quicker. Just trying to clarify some descriptions you used and if comparing to a different disc in degrees of wear, clarifying what the disc your comparing to flies like when new, lightly used, seasoned, beat, thrashed, ect.

About rocs flipping (up to flat or flipping over). I have found that my rocs dont really flip, except by the wind. My rocs tend to fly very stable (and i dont mean overstable), depending on which roc I select for a particular shot (i carry four). In my experience, rocs hold a line like no other midrange around, although I am sure some would argue a buzz can do the same. Anyways, I seem to only be able to flip my rocs when I make a deliberate effort to torque them over.
