No, it's not a Roc3 by any means. They're even penned "R" instead of "R3."

Looks like they sold out of them too. They only had 4 when I grabbed two.

I saw those up a while ago and just assumed that they were mis-labeled. Throw some pics up so we can get our detective lenses out.

Link to an album with the discs and comparisons. I left out a full underside photo between them because I couldn’t capture it to where any noticeable difference could be seen.

To me, there is a definite difference between the Roc3 and the MF Rocs. They’re definetly not Roc3s.

Looks damn near identical in profile to the KC pro. In any event, they probably suck real bad, you can send them to me for disposal.

Haha! I’m a sucker for rocs with champ plastic. I’ll be tossing them sometime this week and see if one makes my bag now or later.

The closest looking ones seem to be the R-Pro and KC. There is still a slight difference in the top of the nose, but that could be from cooling, not a mold change. The Taurus I have looks a lot like KCs with that same slightly higher rise. It is honestly hard to tell though. Are they fairly flat on top?

They have less dome than my USDGC Roc+ and way more than my Roc3’s. Looking at them a little closer, the dome is between the Rancho and the KC.

I mean aren't we overthinking this? If it has Roc tooling with the patent number it's a Roc; if it has www in the tooling it's a Roc3 or some sort of not-a-Roc-Rocish disc. Isn't that still the deal?

I remember some early Roc3's being penned as "R" - I forget which plastic, but it could've been metal flake. It's been a while. The domey ones were more overstable.

The big bird Roc3 in my hand right now is penned "R". That's why I'm saying look at the tooling. Tooling don't lie.
