Gstar Roc3 vs Gstar Gator?

According to inbounds, these 2 discs are very similar:

I'm looking for a mid range (gstar plastic) disc for overstable shots upto 250ft. At that range, will I see much different between these 2 discs? Thx.

Gators are bricks... Roc3 is straight with a bit of reliable fade. Funny that chart makes the roc3 look more of a hook than gator haha.

I'm not sure with gstar though.

I bag both. G* Roc3. Champion Gator.
Used to bag a Star Gator. Even in star plastic there was a noticeable difference between the Roc3 and Gator. Roc3 has more glide and less fade. I threw it about 30' longer too. In Champion, the gator is a glideless brick. Which is exactly what I wanted.

Thx for the comments. Gator: 5,2,0,3 vs Roc3: 5,4,0,3

Would appear the only difference is the glide, which I think tells me the Gator will fade quicker compared to the Roc3. Will probably need to bag both.

Roc3 is not overstable. The fade is VASTLY overrated. I'd rate the Roc3 5 4 -1 1. Its definitely not a 3 in fade, not even close. The Roc3 is straight stable

To me it is. more so than a brand new kc pro roc.


A gator has no glide, awesome disc to bag ( trick shots ...)

You want a handful of rocs in your bag. 1 gator and one understable like a meteor

Gator is a brick and super OS. Doesn't go very far, reliable in wind, great utility disc. Roc3's are much more of a workhorse. Much longer, a lot more glide, less fade. I don't know exactly how the Gstars fly compared to other plastics, but in champ you can get anywhere from decently OS to dead straight roc 3s out of the box. Either way it'll be less overstable and longer then a gator by a lot

My Gstar roc3 started out straight to a late predictable fade, now that it's broken in it goes straight for even longer before fading, but turns a little if I really crank or throw it into a headwind. I traded away a metal flake gator because it was too much of an overstable brick. My friend that I traded it to doesn't use it anymore either, he throws a suspect for that slot instead.

A G Star Roc3 is not as stable as Champion Roc3. This disc can be used for awesome straight to slight anny shots.

Depends on the Roc3 you get just like any other disc. I have some that are really straight out of the box, but I've noticed the domier Roc3s will be noticeably more overstable.
