Indeed, I meant "no time". Bought it back in the early 2000s.

I've been throwing my DX Roc along with my XT Rocs, but the DX just never felt or flew the same. The slight dome made it feel like a different mold in my hand, and although the flight was 'ok', I just couldn't grow to trust it like I do my XT's.

I flattened it with the boiling water trick and a weight, and now it's perfect...what a difference! I was hesitant to do this, but figured I had nothing to lose since I wasn't gelling with this disc. I'm glad I did, and will be ordering a few more DX Rocs the next time I buy.

30yr Rocs are what I’ve been tossing for a while. They’re sufficiently stable and have a little tendency to skip if you get the angle right. Not as stable as a Rancho (with that said I’ve had bad luck with Ranchos and sometimes get flippy ones). 30yr is a pretty consistent mold. I’ve had one in the bag since release and it’s perfectly straight with a little fade.

"No Time" KC Pro Rocs were a mid '00's thing. Climo had won his 11th title in 2002 and there were a few runs of 11X, then there was this run where it didn't say anything about how many titles he had won. There may have been more than one run, but it was not very long after they showed up that Climo won his 12th title in 2006. After that the 12X's came out.

The late 11X KC Pro Rocs were soft and not very stable and the no times and early 12X tended to have the same problem, so they were never super desirable among Roc throwers. Like with anything, you can have a good one. They just never had a following like the 8X or 10X had.

The best Roc I've ever thrown is a Z Wasp.

I had a chance to throw my new “wing yang” USDGC Champion Rocs. Having never thrown any type of Champion Roc, I didn’t know what to expect as far as how overstable they would be. They’re by far the most overstable Rocs I’ve ever thrown so I’m happy. They’ll pair well with my DX Rocs.

I saw a brand new day glow green 2005 15th Anniversary Roc at a local shop for $33. It's been on my mind ever since. I only throw pink discs, but man that ROC felt so good. That nice grippy, opaque soft champ plastic

Is that disc golf depot?

I have been using a quantum taurus which is essentially a luster champion rocX. It fills the spot nicely

No, it's actually not Depot. It's a small thrift shop that somebody has their collectable discs for sale. Not sure if Depot has the 2005 anniversary one, but I did see this years 2020 30th Anniversary Luster Roc there.

Then in late 2000's in 2009 the winners of divisions at 2009 Ice Bowl got a Disc, the flat top version of the late 12x to early 13x KC Pro ROC that sells for $45-$50 USA. I won my devison as 90% in my division of Rec only showed up to get a disc and leave due to cold then the few that did stay did not finish the round, I was the only person in Rec to fully finish a round the other 2 one bailed after he found we were playing the 5 holes now gone that were in another part of the park and the onther slipped on the tee pad and messed up his ankle really bad. One kid who was about 12-13 he had to be rushed to the hospital by somebody found under the bridge that goes over the Missouri river after his round, he never made it back for the ceremony, he was getting slower and slower. He was in hypothermia, wearing not even close to the right clothing for the weather but did have some thin gripper dot style gloves on so he never lost fingers. Lucky two people looking out for him as well as myself did find him, or his entire body would have shut down and next day he would be dead. From then on his parents started caring a bit more about the children they had, before they took them for granted.
