My DX RocX3 really does just feel like a flat, overstable DX Roc. It's only maybe 30' max shorter with a bit more fade, and more reliable into a headwind. But at the end of the day, it's still very much a roc to me.

Millennnium Taurus is the Roc-X and a step up in stability if you're dead set on staying in the Roc family. Otherwise I'll throw another vote in for a good old Z Wasp.

Here you go. Flies like a fresh Rancho Roc but in premium plastic so it takes forever to beat the overstability out of it.

Its a similar disc to the Roc, but the nose shape is noticeably different. Its a Roc in the same way that a BuzzzOS is a Buzzz. Its meant to be an overstable compliment and its very similar. But its not the same disc.

So my point is that if youre trying to be a Roc purist for whatever reason, the RocX3 doesnt really fit. Something like a Wasp, Ghost, Mace are all closer to a Roc, despite the name IMO.

I know you want to stay within the Roc family and everything, but the easiest solution is really to just suck it up and throw a Z Wasp. If you close your eyes you won't know the difference. And it will be way easier and cheaper to replace than whatever specialty run of Roc you need to find.
I can tell a difference, the Z Wasp has the more comfortable rim due to being Wider then a ROC.

Another great and cheep on Gotta Go Gotta Throw is Lighting # 3 Hyzer. The #3 Hyzer is very similar to what A ROCX3 is for a disc but maybe that disc is 4-5|3-4|0|4 but being in the Baseline the disc will wear in a tad. I know as my dad had that and kept loosing them as discs so he found the Z Wasp as that was as OS as my dad needed, he found that he did not need such an OS Disc.

At the time in m dad in his 2 year of play he was trying to get a disc for ever single shot type he needed, a few years later to now he has mostly a putter for putting and an OS putting putter, a US and OS putter for throwing, a US and OS set of midrange then same but also a neutral fairway, and same for drivers in 9-10 and then just a Tee-Rex/Xcal disc for the max speed slot as there was not much for speed 12 in 2007-2009 that was not on the OS side.

I have a quick dumb question : are Roc3s typically flat on top? Like, I'm more likely to trust that I'll get a flat Roc3 if I order one blindly through the mail? Isn't that one of the main appeals of Roc3s over regular Ranchos besides being a tad faster?

From what I have seen the average Roc3 has more of what I'd consider a low dome or "kinda flat" but not really flat. I've had Roc3s in Champ and Star that were as domey as regular Ranchos. If you want to buy a flat Roc3 it will have to be in person or through an online store that will confirm flatness. OTB Discs is one that lists ratings for how flat or domey each disc is.
