Default Roc plastic for ITB 2019?

So...I love my some rocs, currently can’t decide between the dx roc and the kc pro roc for this year. I love and hate different things about them. DX: I love how quickly they beat in but hate how quickly they beat in, shocker. I love the fresh slight overstability, the feel in wetter weather, and the flip to turn when beat in. KC Pro: I love the flight and feel, but hate how long they take to break in, but when they are... money! Very point and shoot laser straight disc. Plus I putt with the KC Pro Aviar, consistent plastic.

I prefer to carry 3 -4 mids in my bag and I want to keep the stable and Understable plastics the same. Usually 3, one being a gator. I need help....
OS- Flat top glow champ gator
S- newish dx or kc?
US- beat newish or kc?

Thoughts?

Have several spring practice sessions with 5 of each to find which you enjoy and trust most.
There is enough variation among both dx runs and KC Pro runs that making decisions based on their customary attributes is a fools errand. A 'good' dx roc won't beat in that fast, but a waxy one sure will. Get a couple handfuls of Rocs and learn them for what they are, you'll come out ahead!

Do you already have KC's that span the stability range? If not but want to keep plastic consistent you could get lighter ones from straight to US and max weights ones for the stable to OS range.

R-pro is the solution. It’s a good inbetween of DX and KC Pro. My favorite is the stiff R-pro. Unfortunately, they aren’t so easy to come by these days.

If you already have them at those levels, just keep adding new kcs until you have a full cycle of kcs. Keep the used dx at home as back ups for the broken in kcs.


If you get some kcs "too flippy" I can take them off your hands lol

I’d grab one of each and work them in for your stable and understable roles. I think optimally you’d have a cycle of kcs, but that will take time.

Hmmm, I don't think I see the problem. If you like the KC Pros for consistent feel with your Aviars and you already have some beat in KC Pros, then pack those most of the time. Then if you're playing in wet weather or on a course where there are holes you are likely to lose a disc, pack the DX's instead (maybe even just 1 DX for the disc eating holes and KCP for the rest). Is there a reason you have to absolutely only use one or the other plastic for the season? It seems like you might be overthinking the issue.

That said, I just stick to one Champ Roc (where you use your Gator) and a stack of rotating KCs.

You’re over thinking it. Pop those KCs in the bag and go.
