I believe so, though I have not thrown either disc in those plastics. My Glo Z Roaches are less HSS than Challengers. Makes for straighter upshots. Tons of glide, without being flippy.

Loving me some roach. If your a fan of the magic to me the roach is a tick sleaker in the hand and a tick faster. Other than that very similar feel and flight. Took the magics out of the bag for the first time in years.

I've just made the switch to the Roach after putting with Pa1's for over two years. It's taken me a few weeks to really iron out the odd form I had been using to putt with such an OS mold. May sound odd but these two don't feel that different in my hand but the flight of the Roach is so much easier to keep straight and my putting has been much more consistent. I was putting with it in some 10-12 mph open winds yesterday for practice and it held up nicely. These are stable. Love the grip and durability of Jawbreaker. My Big Z's are really great throwers too. They remind me of a slower ESP Buzzz. Discraft did a good job with this mold.

My flight #'s =
3 | 3 | -.5 | 1

One last bump. Anyone find the Big Z Roach to be more stable than a lot of the initial reviews put online?

My Big Z is significantly more overstable than my Glo Flx Zs. The XSofts are less overstable, but very workable.

Yeah I thought the Big Z Roach would replace my PA4's but I'm going to carry both for throwing because they are that different. The Roach won't hyzer flip for me like the PA4. I think Discraft should have given it a rating of 1 instead of 0.

Are any runs coming out with any domes or pop tops? My buddy got a Discraft X-mas bundle with a black MDGO stamped D-Roach that had a pop top, and that's what made me go out and buy some Roaches. I opted for the X and JB, but mine are flat. Great fliers though, I just liked the feel of that D pop top (I haven't actually thrown it, just putted with it....).

Any one notice D's running more domey?

No D Roach experience at all, but I used to see some crazy domes with Pro-D Challenger misprint packages. Mine would have been in the 170 range. A ten pack would have 2 with crazy dome, 2 with sunken tops, and 6 in between/normal.
