Default The Cro

Does anyone use this disc? What are your thoughts?

Yes, I have used the Cro since it first came out in star plastic. I think it is reliable and handles the different speed levels and shots well. I have used it in the star, DX, CFR Champion, and R-Pro plastics. I beat the DX in too soon, put the star on the back burner since it was first run. I mainly use the R-pro and break out the Champion for something different. It has been good for me were I need a longer approach shot than I can get to with my Rhyno. If you play alot of wooded courses it works good for that.

I had one in the bag for a while. Star plastic. I really like it for short up shots, but I just use a putter now. Between roc, buzz, putter I see no fit for the cro.

I have a DX cro and really like it, but like T Strat said with a buzz, a roc and a putter it seems to overlap in my bag. But get one and try it out. Might replace something or add something to your bag.

To me it throws like a slightly longer challenger or BB Aviar. It's not a bad disc, I just have discs that can do what it does so I don't throw it.

I use a DX Cro from time to time. It doesn't have a permanent place, but occassionally I use one depending on the course. My normal mids are

Z Buzz
Z Buzz SS

San Marino Roc
KC Pro Roc

DX Gator
Star Gator

so if a course tends to have shorter S curve drop zones, I'll put the Cro in in place of one of these.

Another way to look at it, to me it is a shorter, cutter Roc.

If I lost my Roc's, Buzz's or Gator's, I would replace them. If I lost my Cro, I wouldn't replace it.

Same way I feel about my Mako (use it time to time, but wouldn't replace if lost), but on the other side of the stable spectrum.

I have one. I carry a Spider instead. Innova says Cro is an alternative to a Shark. I carry a Shark too but it's heavier than my Cro or Spider.

I used to throw a Cro, but it gradually made its way out of my bag since I was just throwing my newish Roc all the time. It is different enough that I would recommend everyone try both and see which they like better, but I prefer the Roc.

Rocs seem more consistent off the tee and the stability/glide are a little more driver-like as opposed to the Cro which feels more like a fast putter than a slow driver.
