If a DX Roc, ANY DX Roc, is flippy for you off the shelf you need to clean up your form.

Same, I use low dome almost flat top Star and regular low dome Champion and the Valkyrie though they fly straight the flat top star flies better into mild headwind up to 20 mph and the low dome Champion is not good into the wind though up to 10-12 mph headwind the disc is at the max where it can still preform and get the full flight. Do not like Pro as then it is like the Road Runner US and I feel then just get a Champion or Star Road Runner.

The Gator changes so much as I see from my brother, the DX can be from a no glide flat top that tops out at a specific distance for every player then, with dome a Gator is to a average to high glide disc if even having a little dome to them for a Gator. Then the Metal Flake is for the super power player to get the average glide to work though not that OS considering how flat top the mold is. Then the Limited run G-Star are like Stud in the putter glide the disc has but with a bit more beef to the disc then a Stud. I do not know other molds as my brother has not used them. I bet the Star gator is like DX having high glide with dome models and no glide version stopping at a set distance.

Also some Valkyrie's with the Monarch Top on them from over 10 years ago in 2008. Discs are from the then lite set of Champion that ran like early Blizzard Champion runs though these specifc disc do not get above 158 grams due to the discs having the Japanese Open stamp on them. Some can still be found on the DGU site under the Japanese Open discs set.

I shouldn't say it like that. What I mean is, even the flippiest off-the-shelf DX Roc has more than enough stability to fly straight with an OS finish, if your form is cleaned up. If you're flipping one, you MIGHT WANT TO do a little work cleaning up your form.

Or just throw OS stuff horked over -- sure works for Nikko. Whatever is fun for you.

But there aren't any Rocs that are "flippy" right off the shelf.

Full disclosure: I don't throw DX plastic at all anymore, so my comment on DX Roc3's and Roc3's being less stable is mostly conjecture. But even off the shelf, the ones I have thrown always finish straighter than other plastics.

Having said that, let's not act like they stay like a Roc for long. I stopped throwing DX because of a Firebird I had a couple years ago. Had one run in with a parking lot, then the next thing I know it's turning in a slight headwind, even with my noodle arm.
