man...is this a comet haters thread or a Roc lovers? Geez, you'd think you wouldn't talk about 'em here...


This thread is only 3 pages long. We get a while to be juvenile before we have to act like the grown up Comet thread.

i find on windy days i don't throw the rocs well. Today it was windy and i went 36 holes not throwing a single roc. ordered some star rocs and hopefully they will be super stable and flat topped.

Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Back to the less juvenile post count raising. I use 'em both and the Roc is the better one due to massive reliability but the Comet is great too especially in tunnels and anny work and when needing to use less power for the same distance. Only after you meet the added finesse requirements of Comets though. Rocs are a lot more forgiving therefore consistent especially with heavier winds.

So in an experiment I took a brand new rancho roc and a wizard and removed the bead on both of them by rubbing it on concrete and then carpet to polish it. The wizard flew like crap and was really squirrelly, the roc on the other hand was very controllable and flew best at 60-70% power, it's kinda cool but too bad it is illegal to use in tourneys.

I've done that with a wizard as well. I too found that it was super squirrelly, I wasn't upset when it cracked a bit later.

Is anyone throwing new sanny rocs still? I have a few put away that I was thinking might be the next in the rotation as they are nice and stiff.

The Sannies I have are all recent run with either club or tourney stamps. The plastic is super stiff and feels kinda like KC Pro in the hand. I love the flight pattern (out of the box they fly like a well seasoned rancho in the same weight for me) and if I could find more on a regular basis then I would probably put them in the bag.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-

actually yes I did and it flew more stable than a D buzz. I actually think it flew pretty close to the old element-x

i lost my best worn roc recently so ive began to beat new ones in again. my 4x glow is still beefy even in strong winds. ive got a nice kc that is getting really straight and i just ordered a few 171 rocs to see if i like the lighter weights. my roc pile seems to grow on its own as i snatch up all the used kc rocs i can find, but at least im getting rid of some of the old unthrown stuff now.
