Default Straightest flying Roc?

So many different molds. Rancho, Ontario etc. What is the straightest flying mold? Similar to a Buzzz.

I think it depends on the thrower. Flat tops are the straightest that are available to most people. An 01 is by far my money disc, anytime there needs to be a shot, the 01 comes out

A beat Rancho will be as straight as anything. I forget which of the other ones starts off straight.

I personally think any of the Flat Tops fly very straight. I prefer the Flat Top Glo Rocs, they are the only ones I keep in my bag.

I threw a Woody the other day. It flew very straight out of the box without the harsh fade of a Star Rancho or some KC runs

The rough Roc to Discraft conversion goes like this:

Rancho Roc=Wasp
San Marino Roc=Buzzz
Ontario Roc=Comet

The straightest Rocs are San Marino's. I know a couple of San Marino Roc guys who converted over to the Buzzz when it came out and told me they flew very similar. With what San Marino's were selling for at the time, they saved a lot of money switching. One guy has pretty much switched back to the re-issued San Marino's and the other has stayed with the Buzzz.
