Project Save the Rancho Roc!

Okay so in the VRoc thread I brought up the idea of getting Innova to retool the Rancho Roc. The idea involved a kickstarter campaign to fund the engineering analysis, 3D modelling and tool design, and the fabrication of the actual mold.

But for this discussion I want to know what is the best iteration of the Rancho Roc to use for the modeling.

Everyone seems to like the 11x KC Pro.

thoughts?

I'd be happy if they'd just bring back the flat rim.

With the three new Vroc molds coming out I highly doubt Innova cares about the Rancho Roc. And really, how many damn Rocs do there need to be?

When did the Rancho Roc die? Isn't that what all DX Rocs are?

The Rancho mold has already been cut once. I'd imagine that Innova has the data for it and any tweaks already. I doubt you'd have to go to this much trouble. Just raise the funds for a recut.

Allegedly one is based on the SM Roc, then the standard Rancho, then the Roc3.

Ranchos aren't going anywhere, but if you want the best run it was the "Big Eye" USDGC Rancho. 2008, I believe. I'm lucky enough to have 3 F2 big eyes and they are magical.

And since we're playing make believe, why not have them bust out the 4x glow?
