In my experience it is very forgiving of OAT. That's one of the things I like about it. Definitely a "power" mid-range disc.

I would compare the OAT forgiveness of the Roc3 to a Z Buzzz. That good. I've turned both of mine over, but it's always an angle or wind issue. It's never the OAT-fluttering-wobble-over that torquing other Rocs does.

Didn't know if .I should get another wasp or a pain or a roc3
Me and regular rocs don't get along very well
Tourney this weekend has roc3 and terns for in player packs and I didn't know which one to choose.
My Opto Pain has more high and low speed stability than the Roc3. I'd say it's a little beefier than the Z Wasp I have, but not as OS as a Hornet. The Roc3 is kind of halfway between a Z Wasp and a Z Buzz to me. It's a straight flyer with a reliable fade. I went to a wooded course today and after 9 holes I stopped at my car and put the Roc3 back in the bag. The Pain has too much fade to it for a lot of the holes there. The Roc3 was working quite nicely. it' probably won't be leaving my bag again.

Never thrown a Tern, so I can't help you there. I've heard great things about them though. A few guys in my club who loved Katanas made the switch after throwing one.

i got a chance to look at the roc3s for the player packs today
they are max weight-glow (they looked pretty flat also)
so i guess i will try one, if i dont like it, it will be ok for glow rounds i guess

Sorry, I didn't mean to accuse you of being a Innova marketing tool. I believe you are just telling us what works for you from the discs you use.

However, it is true that people will buy discs based on what you say. Thursday morning, before I read this thread, my buddy was asking about the Mako 3 and mentioned you - word travels fast in small tight communities. He is thinking about getting a Mako 3 because his Roc 3 is too stable for him on most approaches. Sounds like that would be a good idea.

Personally, I don't like the bevel, so I don't throw Rocs for that reason. I've been told I could change my grip, and the bevel would work better for me.

All of you Roc3 throwers should check out a Pinnacle Ghost from Legacy when they are widely released. Super flat top and handle power very well.

I'd say go Roc3 over Tern. The Terns seem to inconsistent in my experience. Also the Roc3 is more versatile IMO.

i think i will because the terns are too fast (for my noodle arm) and tye-dye (camo)
