I'm not sure a flat top champ rancho would actually sell that well, especially if it was kind of straight. At the very least it's going to be outsold many times to one by both KC pro Rocs and Dx Rocs because those are the most well reputed by Roc throwers. Also, those break in much faster, meaning people need to keep buying them. The only real coveted premium Rocs are the original CEs and the old Kenny glows that are flat but very overstable.

Factory second

They had a bunch of these at the Winthrop pro shop:

Weight: 178g. Factory second because it has two small black specs in the rim

Yes, but it is pretty firm. I find crystal plastic to be more flexible.

These are not like any Rocs I have thrown before. I expected a more stable flight, but found it very neutral. And ( imo ) one of the problems with Rocs is having to " break in" a disc instead of getting one off the shelf that does just what the last one did immediately. If players find that these are durable and still consistent they could catch on quickly.
