I find my RC3 to be a tad bit more stable than my CMD2. But that's because it is one of the super old gummy opaque ones and I have beaten the **** out of it.

I second this...I don't even look at the marketplace anymore. People trying to get what they paid for a disc and add shipping on top of it...which I can just go to DGC and get a good priced disc with free shipping....or worse, people in the marketplace upping the price of disc more and more like their initiating a new huge state tax increase.

The reason this sport was such an interest to me before was the cost to fun comparison. Very low cost, and a lot of fun. Now in order to get good plastic from most people, the upped cost and not being able to purchase the plastic is making it less fun to try out new plastic.

I don't understand the craziness either. I had some ROC3s and offered them for $20 + shipping. Sold most. The ones I have left are all in the mid 160s so decided to hang on to them in case I end up liking them. If I dicide not to throw them, the unused ones will end up as a CTP most likely.

From a collectors point of view, I definitely agree with the CE comments. I just don't see the return on investment for a $50 first run modern disc. I learned the hard way with first run X-cals.

From a throwers standpoint, I can see the desire to have a cool stamp, I'm all about the weird plastic in my bag. I just can't see paying 50 for a "thrower" that doesn't have a solid track record, ie. 8x, 9x, CE, 10X, etc.

I have yet to throw an RC3 and I figured it may be that amazing/worth it, seems more like FR/Stamp hype from what I've gathered so far.


Perhaps this will stimulate RC4 production? or change innova's production/ stamping policies in general, the Totem Teebirds went off fairly well to say the least. I feel like they'd be living under roc's if they don't gather something from this crazy inflation curve were seeing with aftermarket sales of "limited availability" plastic lately...

FR Buzzz i'd presume as far as collectability (price) is concerned. I'm sure there are some older smaller production run discs (jupiter comets or Cam Todd Challengers) and some newer production run discs (FR TI SS or FR Z nukes) etc. that are more "rare" from a number-based definition... I'm sure another more-discraft informed member can provide you with a real answer.

Of course, I can go to Stubhub and pay someone (more like some agency) who already has the tickets 3-10x their face value for theirs, and if I do that, I've made an assessment that the experience will be worth the hyper inflated price.

Now, because I do that are Fleetwood Mac going to get Christine McVie to fly back from England and rejoin the band just for the show I attend, and proceed to put on the greatest performance of their lives? Umm, not likely.

But people paying buku bucks for RC3's are buying into that mentality.

*cough* Peter Green *cough*
