I got 2 FR and they feel and look just like FD described them. The Blue 171 was a tick more stable than my pink 177 though. I threw both in the field about 35 times before the round and then quite a bit during the 2 rounds I played on a medium length, wooded course. They shape lines just like rocs do but they are definetly faster than a DX Rancho. The stability is comparible to a new KC roc. I like em

How do these fare in the wind compared to a KC pro?

If they are like KCs fine except in swirls and if they are like McBeths Jalle Stoor threw it well in moderate winds in the Frisbeepoint dubs and i saw no errant behavior. He threw a better score solo than the rest of the teams. Lucky me i played with him but i'd like to throw a Roc3 too :-)
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.

Only one room for me is Kuopio Halli, and they have sectioned it with huge net walls :/

The colours are awesome though...super bright, fluorescent red, pear green fluorescent, deep purple and a deep turquoise...best looking Champ plastic I've ever seen.

Compared the Roc3 (177, neon green, slight dome) to my mcbeth roc, new KC, new DX.

It is less stable than a new, domey KC roc, more stable than my domey DX roc and more stable than my mcbeth roc. It seems they tweaked the mcbeth roc mold a little as it is a bit slower and a bit more glidey than the mcbeth roc. It didn't go as far as the Mcbeth roc but it did out distance the KC and the DX. A slight headwind kicked up at the end of the testing and it held it's own pretty well.

This thing kinda reminds me of the old pro line gremlins.

So I just got some rocs in, they're a little different than the ones I already have. The inside of the rim isn't slanted like a plus, but opposite- it's concave. Like a QMS? I seem to remember the QMS being like this, but I could be wrong. Nice grip.

It's just weird, I got 3 of these, all have this, but in varying degrees. One has the groove, then it flattens out for like 2 inches, then comes back.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

:/ well that pretty much marks the end of my Roc love. As much as I hate slanty discs, rounded ones are even mor3 obnoxious...looks like I'm in the market for some nice Ghosts...

I was at a local shop today checking out some ghosts and my first thought was why not? The few I've thrown flew familiar to me as a Roc thrower plus you get a nice choice of plastics right off the shelf. I've gotten annoyed enough with Rocs recently that I've been throwing Champ Shark/ Dx Sharks to see if I could go that way, I read on the PDGA forum about Shark3 and I thought screw this.

Have you guys tried King Cobras? Not too far off of a new Roc and a nice disc to boot.
