I've been throwing verdicts for a while, and have one beat up to the be pretty straight, but they lack glide. I got a star roc3 in a trade, and I like it a lot, and it's pretty stable. I wouldn't mind getting a champ if they are a hair less stable than the star. What is the difference in stability between star and champ roc3s? I don't hear a lot of talk about star roc3s.

I would say the stability's are in order of what I have experienced. If you want something that is straighter with mellow fade try a mcpro that will season nicely. It will take longer to season the star or champ plastics. But OS can be based on disc weight, dome/flat, arm speed, and plastic.

MF (most stable)
star
Champion
Mcpro
Mcglow
gstar
dx (least stable)

I'd mostly agree. In my experience:

MF > Glow > Champ > G* > McGlow

I haven't thrown a Star, McPro, or DX.

I had (and still have) Star Roc3s that were straight with a bit of fade at the end. I had an idea that I would get a Champion Roc3 (at the time a McBeth 3x) to be an overstable compliment to the Star. The Champ Roc3 flew... straight with a bit of fade at the end. Almost exactly the same flight pattern as the Star.

My Metal Flake Roc3 is a tad more overstable, but not by a lot, and it seems that MF Roc3 actually gets more distance for me. The McPro Roc3s are similar to Star/Champ fresh out of the box but quickly start seasoning in. My GStar, acquired in the early days of GStar, flew like my Stars, and I have not thrown the GStar in a long, long time. The DX is least stable, and I've never tried a McGlow...

That Verdict of yours- what plastic/weight is it? When you say straight, does that mean it's picked up turn to offset the fade, or just lost fade to be straight from start to finish? How far are you throwing it?

I'm surprised you think it's lacking in glide. The Verdict glides at least as well as my Star Roc3- for me, anyway...

it's a high 170 lucid. it isnt turning, it is just staying straight longer and longer before fading out. It'll be hard to take it out of the bag, but the star roc3 doesnt dump at the end, it has a much more forward fade than the dumpy fade of the verdict. Ive never seen a midrange handle power as well as the verdict though.
