You threw an amazing drive on hole 15 in the first round of the West Coast tourney at La Mirada last week. What disc and weight did you use?

Hi Paul

Just finally got into rocs. Have a couple roc3s and dx ones. Broke my understable one in cold weather. Is there a way to break in dx plastic faster or you've just gotta put them through normal use?

Also I always hear 'Dx has more glide' when would more/less glide be better? Is it something to do with uphill/downhill or even wind conditions?

Thanks!

throw it more than you normally would. throw it off all 18 tees and for upshots just need to throw it more to get it to where you want.

DX plastic has rumors of more glide but in order to take advantage of that you need to be able to get the height on them to allow them to glide. low ceiling shots a Roc3 will fly better because it gets on a line and holds compared to a DX which just drops the whole time.
