I'm going to state the obvious and say I think it's bullshit that it's so hard to find a Roc in anything other than DX. Yes DX wears in well blah, blah, blah it's not that I don't like DX. I just think the absence of Rocs in Champ or Star, especially in anything other than 180, or at certain times of year, or unless you hold your tongue just right, is dumb. So there. Is that Roc praise because I care whether they're available, or a Roc complaint because they aren't?

premium rocs are way easier to get nowadays.

the star rocs at DGU have been on sale for a while at $17.99 but are, admittedly, only available in 180.

Also what about KC?

Has anyone else noticed that KC plastic has an odd static-ey feel to it, especially in cold dry whether? Even to the extent that dust and stuff is attracted to it? It just never feels right to me.

Don't worry Jesse. That may look like a thread jack, but I'm helping bump your page count. 66 to go.

x3, if I wanted a premium roc I'd throw a QMS..but they are too sharp for my soft gurly hands.

Top picture..how you feel when you fist throw the comet....bottom picture...how you feel when you realize there is no way to repeat that on a regular basis.

I don't know what a fist throw is but it sounds violent.

I threw some Roc shots today for the first time in a few months and I do still love em. I could take out my "other mid" and toss in a Roc and not really miss the other too much. I will say the Roc glides less than I am used to but some of the light weight DX's I got to throw went for a long long way.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-
