Try a fan grip for rocs, I've found it gives me way less OAT

That would be my guess, too. Make sure the disc is aligned the same with Rocs as it is with other discs, not that it feels the same when you grip it. If you aren't having issues with other discs then there's probably some grip issue that's causing the OAT.

Yeah the grip on the rocs feel funny to me as soon as I put it in my hand... I haven't tried a fan grip because I would lose lots of distance...

Are you using a power grip on your putters and mids? I found it useful to learn to throw all my discs with the power grip and find consistency there, then adapted grips a little to be similar to the Climo fork grip on mids and putters.

Yeah I have been using the power grip... I would have no problem throwing a roc with a fan grip I don't think, except it wouldn't go anywhere.

This is pretty similar to my grip, I get 350-375' out of rocs with that grip.

Yes, I had trouble with Rocs until I started using a fork grip. Now I can throw them just fine with a (somewhat modified) power grip. Not as far as Mashnut, though . . .

Rocs are very stable (straight) thrown cleanly, but sensitive to OAT. Not Comet sensitive, but still.

Then why throw a roc? If the rim doesn't feel good, you won't like the disc. Try a different mid. If a disc doesn't feel right, no matter what I can't throw it. All mental, but don't get sucked into throwing something that doesn't feel right. There is another disc that will feel better and throw better for you.

Possibly, but it is worth learning to like beaded discs - there are some very good ones!
