so what then happens when one seasons a roc?
most discs tend to lose HSS as they get beat yet maintain some fade, i would assume rocs work the same and simply become turnover discs as they get worn in and eventually beating into either shreads of plastic or a roller disc.
does the roc possess some sort of magical ability that when seasoned it turns into something completely different?
Most high end plastics and newer disc molds will tend to lose their HSS first. Older discs in DX plastic like the Roc, Teebird, Eagle, Gazelle, etc will lose their LSS first, making them very straight and controllable for a good portion of it's life. A Roc has to really be beating in for a while to get it into the 'turnover midrange' slot (the ontario mold will get there faster than the rancho or san marino)
So, to answer your question: Yes, the Roc (as well as a few other discs) do have a magical ability to become different as they season.* That's why 'cycling' rocs is such a popular strategy - in different stages of wear, they become different types of useful
discs all from the same mold. This is also a big benefit of throwing baseline plastic discs. Your Roc is too straight for hyzer shots now? Go buy a new one, and keep the straight one. Your roc turns too much, even when thrown from a hyzer? Congratulations, you now have 3 rocs in your bag, overstable, stable, and understable. The best part(s)? They cost $9, are easy to replace, and don't take years to beat in like premium plastic does.
*Protip: Basically any mold that was created with the intent to be manufactured in baseline plastic will do this.
