My KC Rocs do not turn into a headwind unless I turn them myself. Though they are less resistant to oat, they have better hss than any other midrange in their class.

I have always been very picky about high speed stability. It’s why I throw Rocs over Buzzes, Firebirds over Felons, D1s over Destroyers, etc. When the PD came out it was great because it had the...

I hope you’ll forgive my skepticism, but I’ve heard that one before. Like flat and pearly Firebirds, I hope this mold comes around again, preferably before my last CFR breaks.

Eh... they didn’t have the same high speed stability of the first runs. No glide, more dumpy. I left feeling disappointed.

I wonder if they retooled the mold, and these are pressed from the original. It’s confusing how much the PD has changed over the years. It’s subtle, but runs from the last 5-8 years seem to have more...

Film yourself and take a look at your form. We all get creeping form flaws that go un-noticed. It’s surprising how much you can learn/unlearn thanks to video proof.

If I handed you a wiped stamp D1 and told you it was a D2, I’d be surprised if you could tell the difference in feel. IMO, just go with both, nobody likes having to track down fresh overstable...

My 17 year old KC Roc yields to you. However, minus a few cool points for having spent the majority of its life out of your bag.

First hole-in-one in too long this week. Ohm on a 200 foot uphill anhyzer, needle thread shot onto a 60ft wide island. It’s funny how confidence in a disc can work.

UDisc actually has it as 415-ish (hole 2 at Downriver here in Spokane), but that seems long. I’m just trying to hammer home my surprise at it’s high speed stability, at least as long as one doesn’t...

Instead of making innumerable crappy Star Destroyers, Innova should just make less of them at a higher quality level, while charging a few dollars more. Same profit, and as an added bonus it’ll keep...

This is exactly the shot that the Roc is legendary for. KC or DX will do.
If it must be premium premium plastic, a Comet will also do the trick.
