If your down for some reading, head to TBird's post #1504 in this very thread and dig in. Should give you a good idea of the cycle system and the need for so many Rocs.

Also those using KC Pro ROC discs also tend to cycle though the cycle is a bit slower then with DX, it is still done.

The only ROC throwers that do not cycle are those using the ROC and ROC 3 in the Star or the ROC 3 in Champion most do not cycle but tend to use the varying heights of dome on the the Star ROC and then the Star/Champion ROC 3 to have the OS flight paths they want. These people using multiple premium ROC discs often label the discs they have from most OS to least OS as they are looking for the OS factors they want as some older disc could still be very OS to a newer one due to dome.

Good to see the Roc thread back on the first page.

I got into Rocs around this time last year. As others have suggested, try a few different Rocs to see what works for you if you want to get into Rocs. Within the base plastics DX and KC, there is the normal stock stamps, flat top, glow, flat top glow, etc. to pick from in terms of preference. A stock stamp KC or DX is a great starting point. DGU is a great resource for trying Rocs because you can typically find factory seconds of each different plastic combination.

Back in the DGR days there was a complaint on there about DGCR that effectively was "who wants to answer the same question about Rocs 1,000 times?" I mean if you don't throw Rocs maybe that would bother you, but I'm a Roc guy. I specifically came here to answer the same Roc questions 1,000 times; it might be my favorite part of DGCR.

I’m sort of tempted to buy a stack of DX roc’s and just throw those every other game.

If you're the kind of person who is tired of chasing every new mid that comes out, likes a bead and would prefer to have one mold to do it all, then a short stack of DX Rocs will do you good.

Been throwing DX Rocs for 5 years and feel no need to search any new molds.

I like the Comet and Buzzz. But I feel like I’m missing out on a classic by not at least playing around with some DX Rocs.
