However, to my surprise, the Champion Roc3s (I have two) performed like the Star Roc3s: straight flight with a 'dump' fade at the end. There was no appreciable difference between the Star and Champ Roc3s.

I most recently got a Metal Flake Roc3. Brand new, it's a bit more overstable than the Star and Champs, but not too much so, and I expect it's going to season in to be like the others.
thanks. thats my experience to a tee. including the MF

What makes them better - the plastic these are currently available in is excellent. The disc shapes are consistent and feel nice. I especially enjoy the metal flake releases. You can buy three of one you like for $45 and be set for years.
So same disc but in champ plastic?

Is a mc pro roc 3 actually different then a Kc pro roc? (Disc - not plastic)

Shark3 is very under rated. It holds sweeping hyzers and anhyzers better than a roc3 and can handle a ton of power. Handles wind just fine as well

The shark3 is like the shark, the rim and the ROC will stop most from using it

No, these are not the same discs in different plastics. The -3 models all have a different, flatter top mold piece than the traditional discs of the same name. So they have slightly different flight characteristics. The Roc3 tends to be a bit straighter and less overstable than a Rancho Roc. McPro Roc3s, while having a very KC Pro type plastic, are much less stable than KC Pro Rocs.

IME, the KC holds its stability longer, by the McPro holds that seasoned sweet spot just a bit longer. They both feel greath in my hand. Very similar feel actually. The McRoc3 might have just a slightly better grip for me though. I havent thrown KCs in quite some time so I cant say for sure, but I dont remember loving the KC grip this much

I just got a Star Leo3 a few weeks back and best I can tell its exactly the same as a Leo but with an extra 25-50 ft.

The Champ Roc3 I have is basically dead straight in terms of turn/fade.

Yup. Straighter, less fade and WAY longer. My McPros go a solid 30+ feet farther then I'm used to as a long time kc roc thrower.

Roc3s are decent. I like the McPros, I don't love most of the champs. Mako3 is great and so is the shark3.
