This pretty much sums up my feelings on this topic.

I cycle Rocs. I currently bag three KC Rocs & an 08 "Thrower" Champion Rancho Roc.

I do, the current runs of DX I've been using have been feeling great. I have a KC Roc that is still overstable and I've been working in a flat top that is perfect, and has been holding up real well. I'll be excited once I get some turn out of it.

Yup, still cycling Roc's. Honestly, I will continue to cycle until my stash of 30+ is extinct.

You might look at a Star VCobra. Straight flying, with some fade while brand new, but that will diminish with seasoning. The thing about the VCobra is that (at least for me) it's very long for a what I expect from a mid; it's at least as long as I ever got out of my (Star) Leopards.

Pretty much the only mid i throw.
Bad plastic and + rims have burned me. I moved to a Ghost cycle for a couple years and loved it. Ghost is truly the Roc standard bearer now, absolutely no reason to use Rocs unless you are single brand.

I don't cycle Rocs but I am trying to start a cycle Ghosts instead.

I am cycling Gazelles for fairways.

The Dynamic Discs Truth is also a straight mid that feels more like a FW driver. Very flat top, very fast.

I tried Ghosts but they were just too deep. Never felt like I got a good grip. But I have small hands.

cycler here! I used to throw the comet, roc3, and gator, now I have two cycled KC Pro rancho, and a usdgc champ rancho. still have the gator though.

I can't believe I didn't try out KC Pro rocs sooner (because they're such good driving discs).

the one bad thing about cycling KC Pro rocs is that KC pro plastic is fragile below 40F so cycling can be precarious during winter/fall. Also in the north east the leaf situation in parks (especially bad during fall, but can be just as bad throughout spring and summer too) means you could always lose a disc on a given round. Also they mostly come in white/cream that can get dirty and hard to find in leaves/snow/brush. Thats why I only throw blue or pink KC pro rocs.

i went though all the typical mids, roc3 (champ, glow champ, McPro), buzz, and comets (I kept the comets for field work though) and saw all those "in the bags" of climo, wiggins, barry shultz, brintster, ect who cycle KC Pro rocs.

I wanted to at least try cycling KC Pro rocs (maybe I'll get up to 4-5 cycled ones eventually) once I got pretty consistent (I'm almost two years in playing). Its kind of a sentimental/intimate way to build a bag, cycling KC Pro rocs like they're you're friends/pets that have a life cycle (OS to stable to flippy).

I'll take a look, I was also considering a Foxbat, but I feel I could just power down my Leo for the same results. Plus not sure how the foxbat feels.
