Unless your reading comprehension was at a level to contemplate an explanation from the point of view that starts with a Warship and then modifies it, lightly implying the Roc3 is a modified Warship copy, and it certainly is from a plastic perspective...........

All 9 of my RC3 Rocs are crystal clear with nice grip and flat as a disc can be with out being concave I guess I just got lucky. Four are max weight one 177 two 176 one 175 and one 173 with that flag stamp. These are the real deal forsure the one I have been throwing is 176 grams and is straight to 300 with a nice smooth forward finish left. I challenged a steady 15 mph headwind and had no turn from flat release. I can't wait to beat the heck out of one to see what we get there. I hope they run the big birds with this same blend. Has anyone thrown the JO Rocs next to these? I didn't get one of those yet and would like to pick one up if they are the same run.

His was some odd cryptic sarcasm/irony.

I cancelled my order, they offered to hold me over for the next run (big bird ones) or to hold my place for the standard stamp when it comes out in february. I chose to cancel my order. All in all a good explanation by Chuck at GGGT. I won't blacklist their site due to the conversation I had with Chuck today, but they won't be my first place to order.

You could tell he really did feel bad about the situation, and did offer a handful of ways to try to appease me, so I'll give credit where it is due there. But i still think this could have been prevented, so still not happy.

BUT i didn't really need a straighter flying roc anyway, i want a more overstable than a kc roc, so it's probably in my best interest anyway....think i'll put this $45 toward a new bag now.

Edit: Also, they never charged my card, since they don't charge cards until shipment. So that is good too. Don't have to worry about any billbacks and such.
