is this a good roc worth picking up as a first roc experience? or can i pick up any rancho and it'll be fine?
All rocs are the rocs that people like

Roc throwers - I am ready to drink the Roc Kool-Aid but need guidance from the Roc Elders. I am willing to pick up 2 Rocs in different plastics - which Rocs are the best / are most representative of the Roc family / would complement eachother and my other discs the best?

For comparison right now I throw a max weight cryztal buzzz and a 166g ESP meteor. I like the idea of cycling a mid and ending up with a slower, glidier shot shaper.

Depending on how I like them I could see myself ditching the c-buzzz. The max weight buzzz is great for when I absolutely need to hit a gap in a straight line through the woods. I do however miss the way my beginner shark flew and I could see myself pairing my new rocs with a 177g DX shark I picked up used and haven't thrown yet - how would a shark pair with a roc?

The Roc and Shark pair great, when new. If you buy DX Roc's you will eventually reach Shark stability and will no longer need the Shark. I'd definitely suggest trying one Champion roc3 , and some DX Roc's.

If you want to beat it in quickly ---- DX Roc
If you want it to last a little longer ---KC Pro Roc

Star Rocs are okay and take a lot more punishment, but they just don't feel right to me.
Roc3 (dare I say) are just garbage. Mine felt like they changed from throw to throw. A tad to hard it does this, a smidge less it does this, a cricket farts it does this. Just very inconsistent in my opinion

Get you a couple of KC Pro Rocs and enjoy the magic

I would say buy a Champ Roc3 and either a DX or KC Pro Rancho Roc. Go from there. Maybe you'll like the Roc3 better or the other way around. They are not yet non proshop retailing the Roc3 in Pro and DX has only been pumpkin rocs.. You may end up wanting all Roc3's. Roc3 = Little faster little less glide.

So try them both. I find they mix well together too. I've got Roc3's, KC's and DX's.

KC Pro and DX, 172-175 or max, depending on what you throw your other mids at. Throw the DX around for a while until it gets into that nice dead-straight Roc flight, then start working in the KC Pro for all things where the fade or additional overstability is needed. If the KC wears into straight, replace with another KC. If the DX wears into flippy, replace it with another DX if the KC isn't straight yet.

Another option is to just cycle DX Rocs, making sure you always have a fresh DX for fade/overstable mid duties.

Roc3's are more of a buzzz type disc,what i mean by that is it's a faster mid that is thrown like a Driver.

Agreed - when Rocs throw more like putters and need height, Buzzzes are more driver-like and can be thrown low and hard.
