Overrated: ROCs Yeah, I said it... the Buzzz is better and I don't even throw one! I mean, unless it's a rancho roc molded on a tuesday in spring with a north wind blowing (really do they need that many variations?!) Also the teebird... I don't disagree it's a nice disc but slow down on the love on that thing (especially the 8x,9x, CE blah blah)... for that matter any "CE" version of a disc.

Underrated... simple, Cobra! (in all plastics!) and the Drone (THANK YOU for making it in FLX!) And the Crow.


*edit... now what!

Am I the only one who doesn't think the Boss is overrated? I use them all the time to great result. And they go farther than my orcs by a good 25 feet consistently.

I'd say:

Overrated: The Nuke, since its basically a Boss, but apparently is cool on DGR to like.
Underrated: Since everyone seems to hate it, I'd say....The Boss.

Ha!
DGR is the only place the Comet could possibly be considered for the overrated category.

The ranchero Roc comes with hash browns, cheese and onions...I think...

I agree that the Boss is tremendously underrated on this board (judging by all of the Boss overrated early posts). the thing is stoopid long, and if you find the right one, literally impossible to flip (I apparently have one).

But man I don't think the Nuke bears any resemblance to the Boss. The Boss is so much more (over)stable in comparison.

Over: Roc...yup, I said it. (Decent mid that is versatile, but it does not excel at anything that another mid couldn't do better.)

Under: Lids (Polecat, Putt'r, Birdie, etc.)
