Roller disc weights?
 
I'm starting to try to work on rollers. What kind of weights do you prefer? Do you want a max weigh monster to crush the puny grass or a lighter weight to frolic daintily on top of the blades?

Well that all depends. Do you throw sky rollers or do you hit the ground early? If you rely on turn to get the disc vertical I would recommend lighter weights which CAN be easier to flip. If you hit early you are going to be releasing vertically and thus turn would be bad.

In general though, stick to above 168. I find that rollers get blown around a lot in lighter weights from cross winds.

My experience is that anything under 170 or so just get's caught up in any sort of grass and loses all of its distance. I only throw 175's for rollers. That said, if you are having trouble getting them to stand up and go straight, getting something a little lighter is not the worst idea.

Get a condor in the 190s

Forehand Rollers - 175g CFR Max for distance and 175g KC Banshee for tighter lines.
Heavy & Overstable with a thick rim to bust through some stuff is my preference.

I prefer max weight discs for rollers. The lighter discs tend to be affected by stuff on the ground a lot more. They bounce more often, redirect easier, etc.

Heavier is better. For rollers I use a 173 Eclipse Vector, and a 200 DX Condor. I don't know why but it's easier for me to roll with slightly overstable discs. The Condor is like a tank on the ground.

Get a 200g condor. That thing will roll up and over a fence, and keep going.

My 9x KC Pro Eagle is 175g and it rolla like a total bad ass.
