Oh, yeah, that's better -- two molds that don't feel or fly the same to replace one that does it all.

I've only had one Star Ontario Roc, but the one I have is just a great seasoned Roc. Still HSS enough that I don't flip it unless I roll my wrist or something dumb like that, but not a lot of fade. It's like a good Z Comet. I love the one I have, can't figure out why it's not a regular production disc. My Star Ontario is so much more dependable than any Star Rancho pop-top piece of crapola Roc I've owned it's not even funny.

Bump for visibility now that we’re passed the Wasp trolling. I’m hoping for more of the nex DX plastic with these.

Meh, I'll throw two mid molds vs. 4-5 of the same mold any day. Much lighter to carry around.

That don't make no sense. Why is it 4-5 on the Roc side? Buzz/Wasp, Worked in Roc/fresh Roc. 2 vs 2.

Glad that you like Discraft mids, keep throwing 'em.

Like he said ^^^ If you were carrying a fresh and a seasoned Roc, that could be comparable to the Wasp/Buzzz setup.. I would still pic the 2-Roc combo, cuz you know, they feel the same.

I carry three Roc slots. Fresh, straight, beat. Are you going to add a Meteor (not all that flippy except at higher power throws) to the Wasp and Buzzz to cover the flippy role?

I BH/FH them so right now, I don't have a big use for a flippy mid.

So I've been throwing the same 180g Star San Marino Roc (Ol' Blue) since 2010. It's a beautiful disc and is the true workhorse of my bag. I keep a 2nd in my bag (orange) that covers the slightly beefier throws and will slide into the workhorse slot should something ever happen to Ol' Blue. I have one other reserve (also orange) in my stash.

It seems Innova is stopping or has already stopped production on the SM Rocs. Does anyone out there know where I could score a couple max weight Star San Marinos? (Preferably bright colors but would consider most any at this point.) I know it's kind of a red-headed step-child as far as Rocs go, but it was the only production run, premium plastic Roc that was available in 2010 which is why I went with it. Now I've been throwing it so long that I'd prefer not to switch.
