I do. I'll post in the 'Ask Dave' thread and see what he says.

C'mmmooonnnn new DX Roc!! :P

I've got a bottom stamp DX Roc that I'm pretty sure is in the new DX. Got it from www.discndatonline.com. They'll look through there stock also, to make sure you get what you want.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

We've done most of the models already, but not all weights and many have not been hotstamped yet. The older stock has to run out before the newer stuff takes its place. It should all be phased in by next year.


Groovy.

Yep. All things in time, I guess...patience is a virtue...but I still want one now! :P

Oh well...at least that gives me time to beat up on my current DX Rocs and make way for a brand shpankin' new one! :wink:

I have more Rocs than some people have in their bags. 4 KC Rocs, 1 champ glow, 9 DX Rocs. I could always use more though... It would be comforting to know I have 15 brand new DX Rocs all the same feel and weight and know what to expect.

DX wraith

Postby twmccoy » Thu Aug 03, 2006 2:36 pm

I threw a DX wraith some the other day. Here are my impressions (171g).
Pretty overstable. I had to really try to get this thing to fly flat.
Good glide. If you work this disc over a bit it glides forever.
Very stiff plastic. This disc was really rigid and didn't bend at all.

Overall it is a winner, and flies at least as far as any other wraiths out there.
The plastic seems OK, very stiff and hard.

Only 4 or 5 are in my bag at any given time. Some are new, some broken in, some beat and some thrashed. Spares for every slot I use and then some. As to the whole San Marino, Rancho, 10xkc vs. 11xkc, they all fly slightly different, yes. And yet which one gives me the flight path and glide I like the most? The current production of sharp nose rancho cucamonga DX.

Innova probably made quite a bit more Rocs in this new DX plastic than other molds, so when they hit the shelves it will be a tidal wave of em. Believe me, when I find them im getting quite a few to stash

Just received 3 DX Teebirds from Zonedriven, and they're all the new DX plastic. They seem to have a little more dome, imo, compared to older runs of the DX Teebirds.

I also got 2 DX TeeRexes the end of last week, both tourney stamped and in the new DX plastic (of course). The 175 is fairly flat, a little flatter than the Star version, but the 169 has quite a dome -- comparable to the DX Wraith or the Teebirds I just described. Interesting.

I carry a 170 DX Wraith for my bomber disc. I can rip ths disc and it will bend to the right and then start turning back @ about 350 feet. Best drive with it....about 450. Mine too has a good glide yet i think the plastic feels like a broken pro disc....and it has decent flex to it. If i thought with Hyzer, it will hold the hyzer pretty well..unless i unleash some extra torque on it. All in all, i prefer the feel of the Star wraith to the DX....but i love DX teebirds vs. champ discs..
