After years of hearing how great and versatile the Roc is, I broke down and got one. I HATED it. It felt huge and clumsy in my hand, and was as unpredictable as anything I've ever thrown in 15 years of playing. That said, others swear by them, so it really is a love/hate as mentioned earlier.

I've been a RHFH thrower for 14 of the 15 years I've played and have seen the evolution of the discs and plastics. I have recently bought into the hype of Innova's speed 12/13 drivers and own a Destroyer, Boss and Groove. I can indeed throw them fairly well, but they all basically do the same thing for me and all go about 350'-375' on a good drive. After falling in love with, then losing and not bothering to buy a new one, I recently re-discovered the SL in Star plastic by Innova. I can consistently throw over 400' over a flat fairway, and it flies so straight it'll make your jaw drop. The TL is still possibly my favorite disc though. Super straight forehand or backhand, thrown hard or soft. It's also easily ripped a long way on an anhyzer, again fore- or backhand. Give one a try, and if you have a hard time keeping it from turning over into a roll, give yourself time to develop your release and try it again. Nothing's better than ripping a 300' laser beam down a narrow fairway.

Not the best forehand disc but you can make it work.
Just thought I'd say I just got a X-out Star TL. Of course real men throw pink so I got it in pink.
