I won my devison as 90% in my division of Rec only showed up to get a disc and leave due to cold then the few that did stay did not finish the round, I was the only person in Rec to fully finish a round the other 2 one bailed after he found we were playing the 5 holes now gone that were in another part of the park and the onther slipped on the tee pad and messed up his ankle really bad. One kid who was about 12-13 he had to be rushed to the hospital by somebody found under the bridge that goes over the Missouri river after his round, he never made it back for the ceremony, he was getting slower and slower. He was in hypothermia, wearing not even close to the right clothing for the weather but did have some thin gripper dot style gloves on so he never lost fingers. Lucky two people looking out for him as well as myself did find him, or his entire body would have shut down and next day he would be dead. From then on his parents started caring a bit more about the children they had, before they took them for granted.
I just want to bump this most Casey-like Casey post ever.

A question for you Roc cycling experts: Does a #4 Roc have turn assuming I'm releasing it flat? Or is it more of a straight flight with minimal (almost none) fade?

I refer to the Roc cycle like this:

Overstable 1 -- 2 -- 3 -- 4 -- 5 Understable

A #3 Roc to me is as close to a frozen rope as they get.

4 roc to me is thrown flat, rides right just a bit and straightens out instead of fading.

Got a couple XT Rocs from the Pro Shop, they were both slightly puddle topped, really grippy. They fly just like a Roc for me.

Should have some turn from my experience and very little fade.

Man, this I-blend Inca sort of reminds me of a Super Roc, but flat and less bulky.
