Replacement for Classic Roc

Postby Drowsy » Tue Apr 24, 2012 9:57 am

I absolutely love the classic roc for approaches and short drives under 250'. It's just the predictably straight flight and low speed fade along with the shallowness that makes for a clean release very time has made this disc my primary approach for the last 5 years, They dont make them in premium plastic anymore, and I need to find a sustainable alternative. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As a former classic rock whore, just throw anodes or opto pures. Personally, I spent a lot of time with wizards and they kicked classic rocs from my bag. Although the wizard may be in danger when I finally get an anode to try out

The wizard is a little too deep for me, maybe a release issue?

I think so, I've been throwing classics for years, and it instantly felt like a classic when I picked it up.
