Well my Champion Roc isn't stupid OS like a Justice or anything, but even on an anhyzer release it will turn back to the left pretty quickly. That can be useful for certain shots, but it's not really what I was looking for in a midrange when I got it, and given that it's Champion plastic it's not easy for me to beat it to straight either.

Mine is a rings roc, it’s definitely got less glide than a DX or KC, but it’s got glide. It flexes out of an anny but not aggressively. I’d say the overstability is most similar to a Q sentinel, not on the gator end of the spectrum. I’m throwing rocs about 280-300 currently.

Admittedly I don’t throw the champ that often. I’ll throw a fresh DX for a left finish most of the time, BUT on those lines where I need straight for 220-240’ then breaking left hard, or throwing a hard high line hyzer that is gonna hold that hyzer and not budge, the champ roc can’t be beat.

They came out somewhat scuffed, and it would seem that the R3 in particular had some areas around the rim that had been bonked the requisite amount to bend the PLH down slightly, which is what I was looking for.

Anyway, I took them out to the course and...
no apparent change in flight path. Straight to fade, like a slower, brand new Z buzz essentially. Not anywhere close to the flip up to forward fade I wanted.


I picked up a 171 gram rancho on a whim this weekend, which if I decide to go down the path of a cycle will be a welcome addition. I may also have to try a DX VRoc sometime as it sounds like a pretty legit mold. For now, however, I think I'll skip the rocs and roll with comets plus an overstable bookend.

Try a Shark 3, No dome like a Shark but is more like a beadless low dome to flat ROC in shape. It flies like a more Overstable Buzz but not a true OS Buzz. Only flaw, the Shark 3 only comes in Champion still.
