I've had several throws with the M3, and agreed with the OP's findings that they have a fair amount more LSS than the Roc3. It's rarely windy enough in Memphis to need something more stable than the M3 but in windier parts of the country many may like its straight flight and large fade. I did like the M3 better than my Roc3 for my flick. Sidearmed it doesn't require as much hyzer and doesn't have the dumping fade of their M1.

Last week Cameron came to bag tags after his Memorial and Texas State tourney trip with news that they would be calling the M3 the new M2 and reconfigure a new M3 to fill in the large gap between the current M3 and M4. BTW, the M4 is really nice and reminds me of a nicely seasoned z buzzz. Cam called the M4 "money".

They really need to drop the letter and number stuff.. Just name the things so this doesn't continue to happen. These are great molds and just shuffling everything around and changing them is only going to scare people away.

I too agree with much of what mike said. Really love the prodigy plastic for midranges. I've always had problems with grip using premium plastic mids. I haven't had any problems with my M3 and M1. Just got a M4 earlier this week but haven't had time to throw it yet. Can't wait to test it!

I'm more impressed with the m1 than the m3.

That overstable mid spot is harder for me to fill with nice plastic discs (gators kinda suck in stock plastics, drones I only like in SE and LE Z which run $20 a pop at least), local retailers have the m1 for $16 already so I may actually try one

How did the m1 fly for you?

For me, the M1 flew like a Hornet. Straight initial flight with zero turn and then once it slowed slightly the fade kicked in. Grip felt better than a Hornet (flatter, not nearly as domey IMO).

Throwing my M1 flat with maybe 10' of height I got it out around 275'ish (max distance for me = 450', normal golf distance with distance drivers = 400', Roc max distance = 320').

Don't think it's going to replace my Gator, but the M1 will be in my bag for a while I think.

In a word... Overstable

But it's not so overstable that it can't be controlled, it seems to be a bit less OS than a Drone and have a bit more glide

Like a stable Drone. Personally I don't need anything that stable since I'm not giving up my Whippet (which I only bag when winds are 20mph) or Firebird. I don't need a disc in between those two and they both flick cleaner than the M1 did for me.
