Sounds like you want a Shark 3 or a Lion, though not in Star as I have read on here the Star slick color stamp that is hard to take off using Nail Polish remover/Acetone or other things like Goo Gone is a slick color Stamp. Shark 3 is what I use and a Lion is almost the same thing seeing how it flies online by average players. Shark will work too but the normal to high dome they have that putter float in the glide that most normal to high glide putters have that are not high OS putters like a Pig, Zone, or Sinus.

The Anubis might be a worth a look, or beat up a DX Roc and hyzerflip that sucker.

Lighter weight Roc3. 170ish is straighter than max weight.

I have a DX Roc3 that I use as my straight flyer and a Star Roc3 for more stable midrange shots. So, if you already enjoy the Roc3 then try it out in DX before spending money on other discs that you haven’t thrown.

Yes if you can find one in the used bin/are willing to wait for it to season.

Maybe a DX Roc3 (not Roc but Roc3) that will beat in to what you want fairly quickly. Someone mentioned the Infinite Discs Anubis, which is like the OOP Innova Coyote, and that might work well for you.

Also, the Prodigy M3 in base (300) plastic to beat in, or Prodigy M4 in more premium plastic that is straight-to-slightly-understable.

Last but not least: beat up a Buzzz.

Does Innova still make the McPro Roc3, but with somebody else's name on it? If so then that'd be my suggestion, and is what I used for that shot shape when I was bagging Roc3's. It feels like DX but will hold up longer.
