Haven't bought a new KC in years, but I've never had one turn into anything close to a Comet within a month. You might have gotten an outlier.
Yeah, I've never had a huge issue with KC Pro Rocs. DX Rocs you can get duds and have to be a little picky with, but I just pick up KC Pros whenever and they are always good. Sometimes they are great, but when they are not great they are still good.

I've never had one beat straight in a month, but...so you know that "carry multiples" thing? The OS Rocs are never, ever the ones getting most of the throws. They really only get thrown a few times a week. My Roc cycle predates KC Pro Rocs, so I've never used a fresh KC Pro as my "throw all the time" Roc. It occurs to me that I really don't know how fast one of those should beat in if it's you primary Roc.

I am a longtime Roc thrower (I currently bag 4 KC's, a champ Roc and a Star Rancho Roc). I have primarily thrown KC Rocs in my time. Brand new (12x and newer), they can start fairly stable. Straightening out in a month isn't unreasonable - it would matter how much you're throwing that one disc. After 4-6 month of throwing consistently, it should straighten for sure. After a year of regular throwing it may start to flip.

I've had DX Rocs that maintain their stability way longer than any KC Roc, but I've also had brand new DX Rocs start straight to understable. Every disc is a snowflake.

Depends on the blend of DX...

Haven't bought anything in DX for years, so if the recent stuff has felt good it is probably worth a shot...

San Marino Rocs back in the day used to beat out the fade fairly early and then stayed basically straight for a looonnnggg time. A seasoned San Marino was just dreamy. Of course the plastic back then seemed stiffer and more durable, but I'd take a flyer on DX San Marinos if I was in the market for some Rocs.

I'd have to sell a lot of Rocs before I'd be in the market for some Rocs, but in theory I'd do it.

As Three Putt said, San Marinos are good straight flyers. I haven't liked the DX plastic that has been available recently but for $6 each it is worth a try.

Got a couple old KCWO DX Rocs from a gentleman at league that's been playing 20+ years. They've been thrown and they're about to get thrown a whole bunch more.20210618_214042.jpg20210618_214047.jpg

My two month old KC Roc cracked in half. White and stiff 180 gram. I don't throw 500 either so I thought it was weird. Anyone else have this issue lately? I've only cracked older discs before, not basically new ones.

That is super odd.
Got pictures of the corpse?
Wild guesses… It got roasting hot at some point. Some voids in bad spots in the rim inside of it.
