rancho rocs = most stable/overstable
san marino rocs = most understable/best glide
ontario rocs = in between the rancho and san marino

they aren't all that different.

So when buying a roc, just buy a dx roc and be done with it? The roc is the only mid I haven't really tried (I know, I know, how can that be :shock: ) and I'm thinking that has been a mistake. I've really liked the mrv and the s element x, but too many great players swear by the roc. I'm gonna add one to my bag and play it on most shots as a second disc to see (and break it in) what I think and want to make sure I'm using the right version. Since there seem to be about 50 different versions (sb, champ, '01, dx, classic, ontario, rancho, etc, etc) I want to make sure I give it a fair shake with the right mold.

What a trip, this is one of the things I only recently discovered for myself.

I asked Innova about it when I was checking on a custom stamp run. Just a few days a go, in fact.

I have three Rocs now. They are all different.

My old standby is stamped with the Roc bird and says "Stable mid range driver". The newer Standard DX also has the bird, but facing the other direction. The stamp says "multi purpose".

Then I have the KC Roc.

The Stable Mid Range driver is domey.

The multi purpose Roc is a flattop, big time.

The KC is super domey.

I think I like the flattop. No need to heyser into the wind. The distance is about the same, but the disc is more consistent in bad conditions. Lucky for me, as this will be the design in the future.

Dave Dunnopace said he will do a DX Starfire next year BTW.

dm42:

basically, try a dx and work from there.

after a certain point in wear, all rocs fly exactly the same no matter what mold version they are and regardless of the plastic.

e.g. i have a super thrashed ontario that flies the same as a super thrashed san marino and flies the same as my super thrashed rancho that flies the same as super thrashed 8x/9x/10x/11x kc.
