At what point is a disc too flippy?

So my first ever roc 12x KC Pro Roc, is at a point where it is extremely flippy. I've since started playing DG seriously after a several year break and for awhile, it was my go to straight to turn over disc. Now however, I'm leary when throwing it, because on a straighter shot I'm afraid if I put to much on it, it will just flip off the fairway. My course is full of fairly short, nothing over 300, and fairways with trees on each side so your shooting a very specific line. The new McPro Roc3 work great for really straight and turn overs as well.

So I'm not sure if I should retire my first ever KC Roc, or beat a Mcpro Roc3 into a more zeroed in turn over disc. Do I just need to start throwing the KC Roc with more hyzer to get the shots I used to? Or is the risk of throwing a turn over OB shot to much to take?

i dont think ive ever retired a disc cuz its too flippy. my beat to piss dx aviar held a hyzer almost in the river a few weeks ago. and its super flippy. you just have to learn the disc and adjust the throw

almost retired my beat to piss stalker cuz its flippy but no i found uses for it. huge flick anny bombs. i can get it like 300+ around massive dog legs(with witnesses). keep it, youll find uses for it

Personal preference on this one. There are shots that that roc is perfect for. It's just not the same shot as before.

There's no hard and fast rule. There are people that throw discs until they crack and others that replace their discs once they start to season a little. If you'd prefer to throw something else in the situations where you now throw your Roc, it's probably time to retire it.

Agreed with most above.
I think more than anything else, if your mentality is now such that you don't think you can trust that disc, then you're probably not going to throw it well. For some, the disc you just described is an essential component of their bag, but if you're more confident in executing the shot with something else...well, there's your answer.
