Flat or domey, light weight or heavy, they are pretty much all the same. These are not the buzzz that people talk about. They are 100% stable to overstable. The people that say its a straight roc throw they disc flat or on an anhyzer out of their hand. When thrown like that they are a straighter roc than the other rancho molds. But if you throw on a hyzer like myself you are going to find that this roc flys alot like any other rancho roc. Its a nice disc and nice plastic but it fills no gape in my 6 roc line up. Maybe if I can beat one then it might but as of right now its only in the bag because it is winter.

the domey ones are a little different but what i must say is the reason it took so long for me to decided if i wanted to put my name on the Roc3 is probably the same reason you are saying it hasn't replaced you other rocs yet. (currently have 3 roc3s 1 dx 1 kc) it took me 3 weeks to finally realize this is what i have been missing, i was scared because i know what i'm getting from a kc or dx but this has just added that wow factor to my bag and now i can throw lines i never thought i could with a roc. i'm sure after your winter use you will have the same opinion

I've thrown a handful of Roc3's now and it is a testament to Innova's inconsistency that I haven't found two that have had an identical flight pattern.

I have a blue 168 Roc3 big bird that is crazy overstable and a 174 dayglo double proto stamp that has replaced my buzzzes for straight narrow shots.

I agree. I bought a Japan nationals roc3 that was a little domey, flew overstable and had no glide. I think it was an anomaly tho, as I've seen some big bird roc3's that were flat and looked more like the flight I was expecting (I didn't get to throw it)

I'm waiting for the stock stamp release

I picked up a standard production roc3 and even got it lighter than I normally get rocs because I wanted it to bridge that gap between mids and my teebirds, but damn, this thing was a brick. I ordered it online and it has a terrible top. It starts out flat for the first 2 inches all the way around and then has a ufo top. If I throw this thing as hard as I can I can get it out to about 250 but it is just always trying to get to the ground. I can put a normal dx rancho out around 330 so that is a huge distance loss especially since it is supposed to go farther. I hope they all are not like this.

I didn't even think about that. I'm pretty experienced in flattening discs so I should give it a shot. Do you think it would make it fly how it is supposed to?
