There are a couple more of those mystery metal flake x out rocs on infinite right now as well as a couple regular champion x outs as well. Pretty good price for a champ roc.

For those who throw USDGC/Champ Rocs, which year(s) do you like most and why?

I really like the 30yr Luster Rocs. I buy them every time I come across them in person. I think I have ten now. I like them because they are very true to the numbers. 4/4/0/3. These also can skip if they hit the right angle. It is useful sometimes. Mostly, I buy them for the durability and cool stamp.

I own some of those mystery MF Rocs, I haven't thrown them yet but the tooling is not Roc3 tooling. My best guess is they're test runs for something or some special order.

Received two newer, embossed KC rocs yesterday. The rim definitely feels "plussy" to me. More so than my older, penned variants.

Anyone else noticing this on newer stock KC rocs? I hope this isn't the new standard...

I haven’t looked at the rim specifically but I have noticed that newer KC rocs I have, both flat top and the normal KCs, haven’t felt nearly as comfortable as I’d like. It might be the rim but it has me looking for alternatives since I don’t have a local shop close by for me to look through.

I've found KC's to be generally plus-y over the last few years. Probably why I prefer DX to KC.

How much does weight impact the flight of a DX Roc? I want a DX to hold stability for as long as possible, so I figure I want 180g max weight, but I'm having trouble finding any over 177g at my usual stores.

Pretty sad at losing my 2 favorite Rocs over the past month.

Yikes. Thanks for sharing your findings.

Yeah, these two I just got in the mail - my hand screamed in horror as soon as I checked them out.

177 to 180 g is going to be minimal difference. PLH is really going to be your deciding factor in starting stability and if you're looking for longevity KC plastic may be the way to go.
