Buying used is the best thing you can do but us roc throwers dont let go of used ones too often so you kinda have to get lucky and find one on FB or at PIAS.

Yeah my buzz is typically for lower line strait to slight turn shots, and use the comet when I can put a little more air on it and hold a line forever. Also great for turnovers.
My Z Wasp is about 2 years old and still has plenty of fade. I love it! I can pretty much throw it as hard as I want with 0 turn.
I do have a couple JB Wasps which are dead strait, and will start using those for the hyzer-flips/turnovers soon. They'll likely replace my Buzzz.

I take a few to the local wooded courses and play best shot doubles by myself. They get knocked around a bit and get natural wear. It's a fun way to practice and once you get used to them, they make fairly decent putters too. It's also a fun way to break up monotony.

Might I suggest worst shot doubles? It's my new thing at the home course and it's really helped my consistency off the tee. A line's only a good line if you can hit it twice.

I gave a couple of my used Rocs away to some new players at my local course (have backups in similar stages of wear.) Hope they come to appreciate those Rocs. Or maybe I'll get good karma and the next time I hit chains with a Roc it will stick instead of splashing out.

I'm definitely keeping my eyes open on the local market, though.
Might not be respect but that PIAS might have tried to sell discs and did not make enough to justify keeping the discs in stock, sold them to the Pluto Sports.

I Will second that the Innova DX ROC makes a great long approach putter if still OS but if beat in the Same disc will make a great long approach putter if running everything.

Many times I have stepped up to the lie where my Roc landed and missed the putt, then picked up the Roc and made the putt I just missed. I have always chalked it up to some combination of making the adjustment and getting out of my own head and simply throwing a disc to the target without overthinking it.

Sorry for the disc drift but I do the same with a Shark half the time.

I only have one KC Pro Roc, but shelved it because it was so slick and domey that I had a hard time holding onto it.
