I played a round with just a Roc and Wizard. It was nice to get in alot of throws with a Roc. The more time I spend with this disc the longer it gets for me and the more control I have with it.

I have 3 DX Rocs in the bag right now. 2 are flat top and one is a semi-beat stock stamp DX. They are the only mids I carry. I would like one that is a bit more beat because I have to force my beat over to get a nice turn. I have another in the practice stack that I have intentionally thrown against brick walls and payment try to beat the straight out of it and the thing is still stable.

I have never liked the feel of the KC plastic and actually think it is too stiff. I don't know why there is no love for poppy top Rocs because if I had room for a 4th it would be a poppy top one that is in my practice stack. That thing just bombs and is longer than any other Roc I have thrown. As I think about it I think I am going to grab it and make some room right now.

The Roc is a great disc and the new DX is awesome. I carry three, in different stages.
I have a new pearlly blue DX one that is very pretty. My beat Roc is two years old and gets the most use out of the three, it has a very nice soft fade.

I currently throw the DX at 175 weight around 260-280. Would going to the KC plastic help any?

Got my latest order today and one of my three discs was a yellow bottom stamped DX Roc. It's closer to flat than even slightly domey and is some of the tackiest grippiest DX I've felt. Nice and stiff too - should season very nicely.

Nope, they just take a little longer to beat

But you could go with a lighter one for a little more D, and since the KCs start off a touch more overstable, a 150-165g KC is a nice disc to have around.

My latest new dx is a tourney stamped orange creamcicle with a tinge of white, and I could consider it pearly.

one of our local PIAS has some off-white and blue swirly rocs that I am guessing you could call pearly if you wanted to.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-
