I hate the way QMS rims feel

I probably won't worry about it much then. I didn't like the full plus rim on the roc and champ roc, but if it's just a slight tilt - and has been like that in the last year or so on the dx - then I probably haven't even noticed that the couple of newer rocs I have and I've been throwing a lot are like that.

Drivers with the plus rim though, are a different story. I can't get my fingers tucked into my power grip properly with a plus rim, so I'll continue to avoid +mold drivers.

Same here. Not sure why plus rims are being used.

Anyway,what about a 13x Roc now that Kenny bagged another win?

Nay, a QMS is still way harder to flip up than a beat roc.

Just want to check if I've missed any info.
Is there any other differences between kc pro and dx other than:
- time to beat in
- feel of plastic?

KCs usually start out more overstable

Yeah, my KC's have a higher PLH than my DX's. And they need a lot more breaking in to start turning from hyzer. My most worn KC is a line-holding machine while my DX's are line-shaping.

I've had one great KC and 3 bum low PLH flipping when new ones which aren't bad in rear winds but not as good as nice DXs.
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.

So, after taking a break from Roc's for about 4-5 months, I must admit that they have gone back into the bag and kicked out the Buzzz/Comet combo. Played a round yesterday with roc's as my only midrange and tore shit up from 320 and in, including 4 basket hits in two rounds. There really is something about a finely worn KC Roc that is fun to watch.

I swap out my Rocs for a Wasp/Comet tandem every so often and then after a month or so put the Rocs back in. I dig Comets, but i love some Roc. So very predictable.

There is a lesson in there. Ideally you want discs for every category that are predictable.
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.

Anyone else tossing Classic Rocs for any shot? Or am I a loner in this regard?

What to look for in a KC pro roc? Gonna use it as a OS/wind mid. Just wondering about dome variance and how it affects flight.

You are not alone sir. I have a handful of of the good classic roc's from about 10 years ago, sitting in the closet. I have one in the bag for specialty tee shots. It has earned me many bird's in my years of playing. The more recent runs of CR's have really been shitty though.

Last year they made soft tacky ones that broke faster than R-Pro so avoid those at all costs. So i'd pick a hard plastic semi domey high PLH one. They tend to be slick.
