But I do feel like we dont have any good flight info for all the past years of champion rocs. Like Id like to know how the past few years of champ glo's fly, how these mf rocs fly and just in general how they all fly. Ive always been fond of the 05-06 runs of rocs but I havent been able to throw too many others.

It would be interesting info to have.

I stayed away from Champ Rocs for ages because I knew a guy with one of those "One Division One Champion" Rocs waaayyy back when and that thing was beefy. Like way too beefy for me. A few years ago I tried one and was kinda shocked that it was basically like a fresh Roc; it wasn't anywhere close to the meathook of my memories. Were they really that different? Did my form change? Was it a little of both? Who knows?

I guess I would just want to know where the outliers are. Give me the super beef runs and the super straight to understable runs if that is even a thing. Ideally I have always wanted a roc that has the gator flight but have never been able to find anything close. I know the rings rocs were pretty os but they were domey and stiff so i stayed away.

Champ Rocs are the best Rocs. I buy the 30yrs when I see them and while I haven't picked up a throwers Roc, I do have a collection of 30yrs and Roc+

Every champ Rancho I’ve had is beefy. Ive had 05, 06, 2016, and a champ glow from last year. All beef. I just dont know if a Roc CAN be gator OS..
The newer champ glow rancho’s are money. Board flat and OS. I have a prehistoric Roc from last year, good run, just a little “plussy” is my only complaint. But most new Rocs feel like that anyway.

A few years are less OS than others. Some are very OS, for Rocs. Mostly, I care about teh feel year to year. I can't handle plussy rims, especially in Champ plastic. But they all fly fairly OS -- I have never thrown a champ Roc that was neutral (except seasoned 2008 Champ Sannies).

I will buy a MF Roc. And throw it. Glad I carefully noted I wasn't 100% sure, because sharing accurate information feels important to me. Also glad the universe needs me to laugh at myself -- MF Rocs happen now, finally, just to prove me wrong.

I expect we will see DX Roadrunners next.
