Oh and please don't get a Roc3, VRoc, VRoc3, RocX3, etc. Those are not "Rocs," just Innova trying to profit off the name. If you want to see what made this mold famous, just buy a regular, old DX or...

Find a store with a used bin and find the most beat up, slashed, chipped, junky looking Roc you can and buy it. It will be magic. Then get a new one for a shorter, more stable compliment to that.

Very nice! I have a few of these and they do fly great. My only beef with them is this blend of champion plastic is super slippery for my grip. If it's not perfectly dry out, there's no way I can...

I was there in person for that one. I still remember the groan from the crowd when Ricky hit that branch on his second drive during the playoff.

Yeah I've noticed this a lot in the past. Often Paul would have a slow start to a tournament, but his scores each successive round would just get better and better. A lot of players will have a hot...

Well that "Secrets to finding the right Destroyer" video did finally confirm one thing we've suspected for a long time: the Scorpius definitely shares at least some mold parts with the Destroyer. I...

Yeah, sorry, but not sorry. There are plenty of people with small hands out there who throw slower discs and still score very well. There are plenty of short people without particularly long arms who...

I don't get the whole "custom fit" angle for disc golf. I mean, we throw pieces of plastic. Aerodynamics don't change. Heaven knows that manufacturers have produced just about every conceivable shape...

You know whenever people give their critiques of pro athletes, inevitably someone brings up the "Hey, they're way better than you, thus you have no right to critique them" angle. Honestly, I don't...

I think it has been remarked on before, but molds are generally designed for a certain type of plastic. The 3 top mold piece was designed for champ. DX shrinks a lot more than champ during cooling....

When I said old, I just meant they had been in my bag for a long time without beating into unusability. I've used a lot of DX Rocs from many generations of DX plastic. The current DX doesn't suck at...

Hmmm, I don't think I see the problem. If you like the KC Pros for consistent feel with your Aviars and you already have some beat in KC Pros, then pack those most of the time. Then if you're playing...

His driving was mostly good, but so many missed putts with the Lunas. He's definitely not dialed in on those 30-45 footers yet. On that second round, I would guess with his Aviars he would have been...

By your logic, someone should hold the distance record for throwing a disc off the rim of the grand canyon. It would definitely go more than 1000 feet, who cares about how it was thrown or what...

The naming scheme won't make sense to Americans in terms of us understanding from the name which disc is faster just from the name. Still, I don't think that necessarily makes it bad; it will just...

I like the idea that the Firefly is not as simple as a P2 clone. Something new will be interesting.

Oh and I also throw old DX Rocs in the woods. On the most tightly wooded course around here I...

This was going to be exactly my advice. Often around here, MA2 is the lowest non-protected division in most events (because there just aren't enough people willing to sign up in MA3). Don't let pride...
