Holy overstable goodness Batman!

Are these going into production? Or just a special USDGC release?

This would kick my flat baseline Rocs out of the bag.

from what ive been hearing,theyre not overstable. very straight with a little fade at the end. sort of like a buzzz.
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

So is this a 100% not the champ plus mold roc? I heard those were straight too. I guess I am asking, are these actually non-plus mold-straight-flying-champ-rocs? Huh?

if these are like the testers i threw then prepare to buy them in bulk.

i'd say they have the HSS of a slightly worn KC Roc with a very small fade. the fade was noticeably less than any other kind of Rancho Roc (sans R+). they were faster than other rocs with less glide. the extra speed helped reach similar distances as my other rocs despite the lack of glide. the difference is not as drastic as cro vs roc, but it was similar.

normally it takes a lot for discs to make my bag and disrupt my setup. this one is a keeper. i need to budget for a huge stack of these as i want the type that i threw, not a second or third run.

it is no surprise mcbeth wanted this as his sig disc. he was the one that got me throwing anniversary echo sannys, and these are even better.

slower than a cro, but faster than your avg roc.

mcbeth vs avg roc

mcbeth= faster than avg roc w/less glide
avg roc= slower than mcbeth w/more glide

So basically it's a flat top dx rancho, but in premium plastic. Never been a fan of the flat top as a workhorse mid, but I like to use them off the tee as a driving midrange since they are a touch faster. Might have to pick a couple up when they are available as long as it's not a limited edition type thing.

I have been throwing one of these for a bunch of shots trying to see what it will do. It is dwfinitely faster than your average roc but not tweener fast. Brand new, this disc is a big fan of holding its release angle. When flexed, the disc fights out but much slower than a champ rancho should. these also dont fade like a fresh kc pro or a regular champ roc. The fade is closer to a 7/10 kc pro roc. According to an associate with a cannon arm, these wont flip up very much, even when ripped, when new but after getting some good wear on the disc it will start to pop up from hyzer or track right for while if thrown flat.

In total; faster, less fade, but enough hss. I'm bagging one, but I already liked how flat rocs flew

It's too late by a couple years, they aren't real +rims but I haven't seen a rancho without some amount of shitty slant for the past 2 or so years, all of the new KC, DX and star Ranchos are slanty...I fucking hate innova
