The Roc3 was like his favorite mid with Innova (right?) and that's a 5 speed too...

Yeah but with the most 3 top discs Dave D just made the discs a Speed faster except in the cases of the Aviar 3 and limited run Gator 3 just to make more sales from the discs. The 3 top discs are not necessarily faster molds, some are like the Shark 3 are faster then original mold but not all 3 top molds are faster. ROC 3 is just a flat top ROC. Think about this, I do not consider most of the 3 top molds to be faster speed, a flat top ROC has the same flight numbers as a ROC.

Flat top Rocs have never been an actual promoted product by Innova; they have never listed flat top Rocs on their website and have never to my knowledge assigned them flight numbers. Flat top Rocs are just a disc geek thing.

When I worked at a disc golf store, we were able to purchase TFR, KC Pro "flat top" rocs.
we ordered about 20 with our touney stamp and they all were normal rocs with a very flat top, I agree that they don't regularly make them but they have made runs that all came out flat.

There is a machine that was used originally to make the full color Ching stamps and that machine flattened the discs. It didn't matter what disc it was (Roc, Gazelle, whatever) the disc would be flatter. I think the Aviars (which are already flat) looked the same, but anything with a dome would be flatter. So that's where this madness starts, the Ching Rocs. They were truly "flat top" Rocs. After a bit they stopped selling the pigment the machine used so the full-color process changed, but the original machine was sitting around at Carolina Flying Discs. People were wanting "flat top" Rocs like the old Ching Rocs, so they turned on the machine and ran the disc through. Ta-da! Flat top Rocs. So you could special order them, and to my knowledge that is still possible. That is not in dispute.

What I meant is that "Flat Top Roc" has never been an option on the website as a regular production item and they have never issued (to my knowledge) revised flight numbers for how a flat top Roc would fly vs. a normal Roc. So saying a normal Roc and the flat top Roc have the same flight numbers as a way of proving that the Roc3 flies the same as the Roc is a throwaway comment; the flat top Roc has no flight numbers.

Which is just another weird tangent since this is a Discraft thread to guess if McBeth's signature is going to be on a Wasp or an A-SS. What were the other two? Vulture and Drone? OK. Wasps, A-SS's Vulture's, Drones. Should we have a poll?
