I'll have to say I'm a Roc'er and proud of it! Granted I haven't tried a Comet or Meteor or any other mids besides a Buzz and Shark. :lol:

I've tried lots of other mids...buzzz, comet, element-x, cro, shark...never have I been able to throw a disc as consistently as a roc.

The comet came close, but the added overstability and tick less glide made me come back to the roc.

I've thrown lots of other mids as well. If I couldn't throw rocs my next choices would be Element X followed by qms. I'd say the element X is the most Roc like disc I've ever thrown. The S plastic is cherry.

Hi, my name is Darrin and I'm addicted to DX and KC Rancho Rocs. I tried quitting the stuff and played around with others but nothing could fill the Roc cravings. I carry four or five in the bag at all times. And have a 30+ high stack of back up/rotation discs that I always add to (most coming from trades here). I laugh at that excuse of not throwing Rocs because it's hard to replace a beat one. Unless I'm missing the meaning of rotating disc.

Nah, my form doesn't let me get them past about 330-340 or so before they start turning, unless I have unlimited cieling and can sky bomb them...

Nah bob I'm just bustin your balls.I Can't throw a roc 400ft on level ground. This was a real gradual slope and I threw a realiy high hyzer flip. It was an easy 60ft high at the apex.

When you flip a 150 Roc like that, does it flip up completely flat (when new), or does it flip up ALMOST flat and stay on the hyzer?

Flat...very mild turnover and then comes back.

1. When you buy your first three, you have no beat one, so the start of the rotation takes awhile unless you go buy used ones.
2. One used disc is not like another, you still have to learn the power levels that make it do what you want. The "hard to replace a beat one" doesn't apply just to rocs, it applies to all discs, but of the many folks that throw rocs, one of the most popular comments is that a broken in roc is a thing of beauty (or the like).

I've got new and thrashed in my big..thrashed is longer and straighter. New is shorter and more stable. A new roc is not a pig even at 7000ft. It takes me about three weeks of using one roc to really give it a good thrashing. So it's not like it takes a year to beat up a roc. It does if you throw it 3 times per round. So I don't buy the excuse that rocs suck because your shit outta luck when you loose your good one.

I carry 11 discs in my bag.

4 are Rocs.

Cheetahs and Aviars are for wimps.

It will get flat and hang on for the ride.
If you wrist roll it will flip past and hold.
Roll-under and it will hyzer the entire way.
