I have found the #2 Upshot to be the closest disc to a XD, the Colt is a bit more tall in the shape of the disc from picking up a Colt in the store. Also #2 Upshot I stared using back in the 2000's when the regular XD was not made or a s much and the + mold began to take over. The mold will need to be broken in more.

Me too but then the Replacement for said disc is a Putter my brother uses the Stud. Sill not close, the Stud is like a more square less OS putter version of a Gator and the Classic ROC is a more Colt shape but OS like a Shark. In fact a Classic ROC is a 3 speed Shark. Then I would not need to use a Star Shark for Approach shots having to use more touch then I would like for an approach disc. Could use then get rid of the Shark mold. I mean Innova makes a Limited production run Classic ROC but the thing is in Star and I want an R-Pro so I can use the mold for an approach putter and uphill/downhill putter as well as precarious basket placement.

I might even have back in the mid 2000's become my main putter too the old DX version or the softer Pro when I was trying a few putters that I did not like. I found the Rubber Putter had a bit more glide then I wanted and did not fight the wind well, so I was looking for a better putter in 2004 after first year of using an old plastic Rubber Putter I was given by an Uncle.

I just got a Star Classic Roc from the Proshop a few weeks ago, and I think they still have some.

They do but the plastic is not what I want from Innova. I want a DX or an R-Pro for the disc, more so in R-Pro as that is more useful then in Star as an approach putter, DX would be the closer putting putters.

Hey XDrocker, I see you've been posting and commenting about the XD on various threads. In my past I was a big XD advocate. I used Star, Champion Glow, R-Pro and DX XD's. But the best XD I used, and still have, are these Special Edition Soft XDs. Similar to the SE Rhyno's from ages ago. Current pics below!
