110g CE Roc?

Postby ParanoidPiranhasDave » Wed Jul 26, 2006 11:20 pm

I just bought a CE Roc off of a guy on ebay, the big bird stamp. He had it up for 7.95 buy it now. I checked his other items and noticed he wasn't selling any other discs. He was a power seller, so, for 12 bucks with shipping, I figured...hell, might as well give it a try.

One thing, he said on his short description that there was no weight written on it, but that he thought it might be 110g. Were there any made that only weigh 110g?!
Even if it is, it'll be a cheap wall hanger. But I'm still curious.

I doubt that. THe lowest weight Ive ever seen is a 145 DX Valk in Academy, and I was amazed.
I couldn't see something as low as 110 being produced. Thats WAYYYYYYYY too light.
But ya never know.

It REALLY is that light, they sell it at the local pro-shop for $8.99 and I'd be suprised truely if they were over 100g. Even for their weight, they're still stable as heck...

I have also seen magnets run in hard toy plastic it seems, with tourny stamps and they're 80g...

In a tourny at Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago my rolling butter was a 130g DX Stingray :P

I saw a 144g Archangel the other day, and almost bought it out of curiousity. What should a RHBH thrower expect ouf of such a light driver? I've got an old, beat up 150 class Cheetah, and when I whip it RHBH, it flys completely opposite of a normal throw, it turns over and falls right pretty hard.

for the most part, lighter discs won't have a different flightpath other than a more pronounced fade. Wider rims are affected by it much more though, and im not sure exactly how so as I havent really thrown much light distance drivers. Even DX Aviar P&A mold in the 150g range will be stable when new. Domey discs ment to be understable will be slightly more understable in lighter weights and easier to break in. You should be able to throw a 150g DX Roc and have it not turn over no matter how much power you're giving it. Like blake always notes is the key of having a sound pullthrough, hit and follow through.

I have a bunch of 110-class Wizards and Element-X's that the kids in my neighborhood use when they walk the courses when the parents play.

Innova had sent some really light 120g-130g dx cobras to get to victims of Katrina so kids would have something to do. There was at least a hundred of them, they were incredibly gummy and felt really cool.

most companies make ultralights for kids. (innova EADGE program) I always wanted to see how a 120 class spirit would fly :shock:

I find they fly like S Spirits. They're really overstable. It's funny to throw them in a headwind because they don't turn over, but they get batted around a lot.

i have one of these super light rocs. i paid 6.99 for it. it's like toy plastic and i think it was created for the 'max time aloft' game.
it's kinda fun to throw around but nothing you'll find use for in your tournament bag.
