These are the 20th Anniversary Sannys I mentioned earlier. Note that there's some writing just above the tail; it says "KC '09", and will not be on the ones set to be released later this month. I heard that the KC '09 Rocs total somewhere in the 1000 range.

man the plastic on those feels SO nice

I missed this before. When you say "my Sanny" do you mean the old Sanny, and when you say that the new Sannys have a blunt nose you mean the re-release?

Damn it, now I confused myself!

Anyway, the few Sannys I've had all had a wing more like the Ontario. I've had like 50 Ontario's and never noticed any difference in the wing. The only real blunt nose Roc I ever remember seeing was the Rancho, and I don't remember seeing anything but blunt nose Ranchos. But I always heard the term "sharp nosed Sanny" used like there was more than one kind of Sanny, so I always assumed there was some Sannys out there with a nose that I never saw.

Good God...I explain Rocs to people all the time, and I don't know what I'm talking about. I hate it when I don't know what I'm talking about. Why didn't Dave D just answer the damn question?

Original is Sharp, the re-issue is Blunt.

This afternoon, myself and 2 other decided to go play the front 9 of Rosedale down under with only 2 discs for tags. I chose a light Wizard and my new Sanny. We are going into the last hole tied. #9 is a 265' tunnel shot with a turn to the right. I normally throw a Roc at this hole, so I step up and crush it on a slight anhyzer right into the chains! From my angle, I thought I hit the left side, and probably wouldn't stay, but these Disc Kings really hold the disc in.

The disc was gotten from Fred Smith for caddying for him at worlds through a rainy 4 1/2 hour round. I helped change all the baskets on the course about a month ago. Karma? You better believe it.

Picked up 3 beautiful beat up rocs this weekend at PIAS...1 10x that is 8/10, 1 11x that is 7/10, and an 11x that is 6/10. Best $18 I've spent on used discs in a long while. The 6/10 11x is a beautiful turnover roc, that alone is worth the price :)

Played a tournament this weekend and just killed it with my Rocs. I erase all the stamps off my discs so I had a bunch of people ask me what I was using....."just plain old ROCS"

You know I totally forgot about it until today. I keep getting rocs in tournaments so my stack is huge right now. I'll probably throw yours in the bag as it's lightly seasoned..btw why did you trade it? Do you still throw Rocs?
