I am throwing mine so I'm not trying to "profit" off of them. I've bought and sold on here for years (over 400 transactions) and one thing I'm certain I haven't done is "make money." I have way more invested in disc golf than I have made a profit on.

I am really impressed with its flight, so what do I do when I like a disc that I plan to throw? Get a reasonable number of backups.

In fact, I don't really think it was hard to get these. Seems like they were everywhere online. I bought all of mine from a local seller. I suppose if you're living in a rural area with one course and no one sells discs there, then getting one in person might have been hard. But, if you can get online and post in this thread, there were a TON of opportunities to get one. In fact, they're still selling in the marketplace for $20-$35 a piece.

So, I'm not sure what's more sad: Pleasuring yourself on a stack of new protos or whining on here because you can't pull the trigger on one. They are literally everywhere.

I agree, they were not hard to find.

Good luck! Not sure what you consider a good price, but I bet you won't find one for under $50. I've run across quite a few people with these and couldn't trade 2 max weights for one....

And the people who say they aren't all over is crazy. I bought some with the sole intent of reselling to make a few bucks (You make it seem like people are making millions!!). I wanted to sell enough so that I could keep a couple for free. I was fighting tooth and nail for sales because the market was flooded and if you think otherwise, you haven't been watching the Marketplace for the last couple days.

And not being able to find 180 is hogwash. I got 9 of them at 180, paid $14 for two, $15 for two and $17 for two others. They were not hard to find at good prices and weights. I know because I did it and I am no dealer.

Agreed Jay Dub! Does anyone have the link that goes to the innova dealer page with the big bird Roc on it. I was on there yesterday but can't seem to get back.

I planned on being able to get a couple of max weight flats from gggt, since I was one of the first preorders. So I missed a variety of opportunities while still banking on gggt. But once I realized what was gonna happen I had no problem finding two at a reasonable price on the marketplace. All depends on what you are looking for (color wasn't my main concern) and what you consider a reasonable price. I just wanted to pick up a couple throwers without having to wait til february. These will be in my bag for a long time.

Thanks bikinjack

Well congratulations on being awesome and having nine 180g Champion Roc 3s. But if you really think that 180g RC3s(that aren't price gouged by resellers)are easy to come by right now then you are delusional. Your experience is not what the majority of people are experiencing right now.
