Sounds suspiciously familiar to my experience. I just got done replying to Innova about the incident. They did ask where and when I purchased it so maybe I'll get a replacement from them. I bought a couple R3's, and had all intentions of throwing them until DiscChainBasket18 said they were going for ridiculous cash. I had the same problem with an anvil once.

I agree. I personally am not a big Roc thrower nor in the market for these limited runs, but it is frustrating how Innova even claimed that the Roc3 would be flatter and then this varying degrees of domyness comes out. Good businesses should always keep the interest of the customer in mind...guess Innova isn't getting the message and just throwing whatever poo out the door that comes off the line.

There's no way you could call the AO's or the proto's "domey".

But a few were board-flat and some were a little less flat.
The difference probably isn't noticeable to most people.

OTOH, all the PM RC3's I saw were indeed board-flat, like a table top.

DiscJunkie: I trust your judgment on the ones you saw, but I went through all 50 that arrived in Memphis for a seller here and about 7 were flat. Around 20 had a mild dome, and 23 were literally domey.

In my opinion, if the mold was supposed to be flat, they should x-out any that are domey. It's not what was advertised.

I bought three domey ones. I like the dome. But, I don't understand how they can justify this.

Someone would be out of their mind think innova is going to deliver a consistent mold no matter what they advertise. Your best off finding a shop somewhere that's selling them, then actually go and feel the discs before you buy.. and even then you might not find 2 that are the same. Never buy innova online that's for sure.

They produce more than they can keep quality control for.

I got tired of buying the good old Innova plastic that used to be consistent for $30-60 a disc when i can just switch to a new company that has superior consistency and the most precise molding hardware in the industry with discs that are just as good if not better... seems like a no brainer to me.

No manufacturer is perfect, but i try to vote with my wallet to keep competitive standards alive.
