Trouble switching for Buzzz to Roc.

I have been playing for a year and a half and I just recently switched to rocs and I cant seem to get the distance with them as I did the buzz. I can constantly throw buzzz around 320 to 350. Cant seem to get more than 250 - 270. Any advice would be a big help

the buzzz is just faster than the roc. all there is to it.

the roc can be pushed out close to a buzzz but at the end of the day is more controllable and achieves more lines than a buzzz for me. so i'll stick with the roc for most shots.

i do reach for a buzzz for sidearm approaches. it beats a roc in that category for me.

Give the roc a lil more height.
Once the roc beats a lil itll stretch a lil futther.

Im not one to just swap discs. The way each disc compliments the others is what makes a bag refined.
You may find a fairway, or a different fairway will give you the missing shot.

If i went buzzz instead of wasp/comet combo id swith clones for xls and avengers.

I threw nothing but discraft for a while but just recently threw a destroyer and an eagle in the bag so I figured give the roc a shot

It's been said often here, Buzzz and Roc are two different discs. Just because they're their manufacturers' flagship midranges doesn't mean that they're interchangeable.

If youre really set on pure dc you could go sp hurricanes and torques/shockwaves with possibly an overstable clone or talon for the eagle.
Dga mids are really nice and severely slept on.

This is so true. I like the buzz and I like the roc, but for different shots because they're very different discs. Buzz's are straighter out of the box, a little longer w/ more glide and better for turnovers. Rocs have that consistent fade and will hold a hyzer all the way to the ground. Rocs handle forehand snap better for me and the bead just feels better in my hand for backhands. I use both but for different reasons.

Don't switch discs b/c you want a disc that flies the exact same as a disc that you already own from a different manufacturer. If X disc is working for you then why change. Switch or add discs to compliment each other and allow you to make different shots or hit different lines easier.

DC's roc equivalent is the wasp, I think, FWIW.

Unless you're angling for an innova sponsorship, just use the discs that work best for you and don't worry about mixing manufacturers.
