Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but basically those are coveted simply because of the flat top that it has. It's just hype if you ask me, just like the flat top buzzes that everyone says are so great.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

thats why. they are wayyy flatter than regualr DX rocs. they seem stiffer too. around my area everyone falls into 1 of three groups:

Roc guys

Ching Roc guys (not many of these people but there are a few)

Buzzz guys (Hey! That's me!)

I've seen them stiff and floppy, they're just as diverse as normal DX Rocs.

Very very flat top though, due to the "ching" stamping method. Ching came up with the method we use today to do multicolor hotstamps (pictures, drawings, ect.) and with DX plastic, it heats it up so much that the stamps flatten it like all hell. Ching Rocs are money for headwinds, I dont have too much experience with them though, but a buddy finally got a icebowl ching roc after seeing me with all mine for so long, and he loves it, 2 aces on it, 5+ fairway aces.

the original ching rocs WERE a slightly different blend and more durable as well as more overstable.

the current ones aren't any diff from normal dx plastic.

the stamp you probably have is titled "zen basket"

Really... When were these run? Any story behind the special run?

they were run from like 1997-2000.

basically, they just used a different dx blend on ching discs and had a blend that worked better for full color printing (which was invented by holgate at ching).
