I've never held or seen one in the wild. Either actually.

I might still have a cro somewhere. Bought it before I really knew anything about discs.

Nope my brother has my Celesron Telesocope from 1999 and it is well made in China, the legs are a bit chintzy being heavy wood but the rest is well made. I have a knock off pair of binoculars Nikkon from my grandpa who got them in early 1990's, supposed to be Nikon model kncokoff but they are just as good as the Nikon model. I have for running got two of same brand of Desmit sport tights Medium ASICS/Adidas Knock off that work well if not better due to the inner pouch that allows me to not need sports undies and a different pair similar sport tights Tauwell that would be great standard sport tight if not super low rise made in China for Japan fashion, also got Small in that.

Also my Athetico Disc Golf Powershot backpack is made in China and it is okay, could be better but it is okay for what it does.

Lion is a very good disc. But it’s not a Roc.

Yes a Cro is a mid that lots used as a hit the tight gap on a hole disc before the mold went full oop. Cro was also a favorite of women playing disc golf for some reason even before a pro Innova sponsored female started to use the mold.

I've seen a Lion exactly one time when I found one. No name/number IIRC. I stuck it in my bag to post on the local lost disc page after the round. Half hour later and a dude rolls up asking if I found it; I had forgotten about it by then but after a couple seconds remembered that I had indeed found a Lion that round. I handed it back to him, and he gave me a weird glare. Then later in the week he posts to the lost disc page saying that some guy (me) tried stealing his disc and only begrudgingly gave it back because he confronted him (me).

So that's my long way of saying that, based on my sample size of one, Lion throwers are over-reactive jerks. Don't throw Lions.

Cro isn’t bad, like a small diameter Roc with less glide. Sort of like a precursor to the Proxy flight wise just not as long ironically.
