I might just want one of these!

Can't find any specs on it yet though. Deep, shallow, thin or thick rim?

This is how it got it's name. Makes for a good rhyme.

Got the specs

Max weight - 175
Diameter - 21.1
Height - 2.0
Rim depth - 1.5
rim thickness - 1.1

Looks like a less stable Challenger

Roach was in the prototype stage when it was thrown and enjoyed by thousands of disc golfers during the 2015 Ace Race.
Now it's available to all disc golfers!


Wow. Discraft ran an Ace Race this year? Did anybody go to one?

Sure did. My DG league sponsered one and everyone recieved 2 proto discs to use.
I love them and kicked out my Magnets and toss the protos in.

They need to rename this disc. I will never, EVER, buy a disc named "roach". The roach is a disgusting, filthy insect that should be eradicated from the face of this earth. The other use of the term "roach" pertains to illegal drug use.

Bottom line, this may be a great disc, but Discraft made an exceptionally poor choice in the name of it. I really am stunned at how thoughtless Discraft was about this.
