The thing everybody loves about the Roc is it’s superb high speed stability. When Rocs get flat topped, the HSS is the first thing to go. Kind of defeats the point.

Yeah they get beefy in most plastic if flat topped, one of the premium plastics they make might not be as affected as much since all ROC come more Beefy in that plastic.

It is the same way with a few other OS midrange from Innova that have the top with that dome to them. they get beefy when a disc is in flat top to regular, Gator comes to mind.

Why can't Innova make a ROC disc in other plastic then DX that has the dome to it the way a good ROC DX has? Then people would use both a DX for less wood shots and the premium for woods and some higher winds. Wonders what an R-Pro ROC would be like? I bet the disc would be the right dome for most of the disc.

I think the best flat-top Rocs I have tried were actually the XTs from the factory store. They aren't labeled as flat-top but they are flat and pretty beefy. Haven't owned one for awhile though.
