And yeah, 06 produced some serious bangers. I had been tinkering trying to find the most OS Roc3 back around 2013. Put a pre-release Japan Open stamp in the bag which was as OS as Id found and was pretty happy. Then a buddy gave me an 06 champ and I never looked back.

FWIW I got a glow Roc3 at a tournament in 2013 and the thing was beefy. Like really beefy; it was waaayyy too OS for me. It was the only Roc3 I had at the time so I thought they were all like that, but the ones I tried later were not anywhere as beefy as the glow one. I'm not sure if mine was a freak or if they were all meathooks like that, but...

I forget what my point was.

You were probably curious if mine is a freakish beefcake? I went and threw it this afternoon and it is not. Pretty nice flight, has a bit more wiggle than my KC Rocs so I might find a use for it

That's too bad; if yours was a freakish beefcake I could write them off as freakish beefcakes. Now I still have to entertain the possibility that the disc isn't a freakish beefcake and I just suck at disc golf.

I have a couple Star Rancho Rocs. They started out as "freakish beefcakes", but then after a month (almost all of a sudden) it flattened out to a straight thrower. It was kind of weird how one day they were fading hard and then flying completely different the next.

I kind of miss their beefcakeness...

Hmm, if my couple weeks old Star Rancho Roc was a freakish beefcake it would have turned left away from the river back towards the fairway, instead of flying straight forever over a levee and bike path and riverbank and apparently right into it never to be seen again

Whenever I have a favorite disc I promptly throw it into water somewhere

I have finally given the Roc a chance and I'm currently bagging two flat, low wing dx, two very small dome dx and a kc. I'm really enjoying all of them, even the flat ones. It's so much fun to release a Roc on a hyzer, have it flip up and fly super floaty laser lines. I'm starting to love this disc

The flat ones are nice too, usually its just the really domey ones that people dont like. Might be sacrilegious to some but roc3's are nice too.

New to the Roc game, so I thought I'd ask the resident experts here. I bought a fresh max weight KC very recently and within a month it's already straight and overlaps with my comets. I'd really like to find a DX or KC roc has starts a little more stable. Is the think to look for a mild/low dome that's pretty stiff? My friend gave me a stiff flat DX that's almost too stable for what I'm looking for.

For DX Rocs, what I look for is a firm rim. It shouldn't flex easily when you try to twist the disc. IME if it is relatively softer, it will fly like a seasoned Roc right away.

Haven't bought a new KC in years, but I've never had one turn into anything close to a Comet within a month. You might have gotten an outlier.
