Rocs are the absolute most consistent mold in my bag, and my bag is build around consistent, dependable discs.

At this point, if someone told me I couldn't throw rocs anymore for one reason or another, I'd quit playing disc golf.






....well that's a bit extreme, but I probably wouldn't throw mids for a long long time (until a true roc clone came out [and a wasp is no roc clone,] )

Do the new dx Rocs that everyone seems to like have the "Mid-Range" or "Multipurpose" stamp? I have always seemed to like the "Multipurpose" Rocs better.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-

I just put a new Glo Rancho in the bag and the plastic seems very durable. I threw it for a whole round hit a tree or two and absolutely no nicks, dings or scrapes.

Tried the Buzz for a few weeks; nice disc but it is not replacing my Rocs.
For me a beat Roc is as understable as I want or need.

Got some premium plastic Rocs and even though they are not readily available they are nice to throw. My Champion Roc stays overstable and has not broken in in almost a year. Just got a Star 2009 and it is very grippy and is staying pretty stable so far.

I'm about to start just buying rocs in bulk. Even rocs I bitch about aren't bad. Any Cincinnati area guys wanna go 1/2 zies on them?

What else can you ask for in a mid?
Stable, fights wind, good distance, not nose sensitive, holds lines pretty well

Now I get it! But I have put a ESP Wasp and a Champion Roc together side by side and it looks exactly the same. Am I missing something or are they they same mold?

Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Innova was really shameless with it, copying the Wasp like that.

It's like that Ontario Roc...it's TOTALLY shaped like a smaller Comet! I hear it even anhyzers!
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

Staying on topic, here are my Rocs:

I SOOOO want to throw them! :D

Unfortunately, it is my form that won't let me.

And, Frank, as jealous as you are about us throwing comets, I am about you throwing rocs :P

This. Or Big Birds. Thank god I got a bunch when you could find them used on eBay for under $5.

However, I will say the newest blend of Rocs if you can find the right shape are nice. There's still a lot of the poppy top ones being produced, but you can find a lot of nice shaped ones too. Large stamps help with that.
