The Roc could go into porn, Teebird get locked up for vehicular manslaughter, Valkyrie get lost in the warm hug of smack....

And the Aviar would be home on prom night.

I believe this is signature worthy.

They are selling like crazy in the USDGC proshop. I picked up 2 and got to throw one of them a couple of times in a field around the Winthrop course. Definitely not as much HSS as your typical USDGC Champ Rancho. They feel awesome in the hand and the plastic is like those stupid crystal clear Beasts that have been floating around. When I say flat, think of the dx flat tops. They were all marked with the factory second stamp, and some of them had a sunken in feel on the flight plate.

IME the HSS of a new dx Roc is the same as your average USDGC Roc, it's the LSS that really marks the difference (with the premium plastics being more LSS, especailly in the last bit of flight).

so flippy discs get lost more?

I would say overstable discs get lost more.

i just meant that if it's the hot new warp speed driver there will be a lot of people throwing them, more people throwing them the higher the likelihood of finding one on the course. flippy isn't necessarily bad, but if you can't get it dialed in to be controlled there is a lot more room for an errant shot...especially in a warp speed driver where you're going for distance over accuracy.

I'm glad to see that innova has finally realized that they make more money selling a higher volume/lower profit margin than with a super low volume/higher profit margin model. It's taken too long to get a premium plastic roc into production. With the recent release of the star roc, (which is $$$ in that softer midrange blend BTW) though, I guess this was inevitable eventually.

Not intending to take anything away from McBeth at all, but I'm surprised that innova let the roc be his sig disc. And if it won't go into production as his sig disc as has been speculated, then it makes no sense that they would release what looks like a production stamp w/ his name at the USDGC. Releasing it at the USDGC is like having a CD release party to promote the thing. It's a foregone conclusion that whatever roc they bring to the tourney is going to be the star of the show, so to speak. Every single one will be snapped up, for sure.

You know that previous champs must've asked Dave D. to have that disc and been denied. I gotta think the Champ and Dave have had that conversation and IMO, if anybody should have their name on a champ roc it should be him. I would think if innova put a signature on arguably the most iconic name in their line-up, then it should be inarguably the most dominant disc golfer of all time. Dave should have let Climo have the roc.

I know the beast is taken, which would've been kinda sweet for him, but surely there's another mold that he throws which he could've taken as his sig disc. Not saying he doesn't deserve a big seller, but putting champ rocs into production is a game changer. They've been so exclusive for so long that no doubt they'll sell like hot cakes when they go into regular production. I think KC earned it, from his decades of loyalty to the company and to the sport.

Am I wrong?
