While I do have a couple Pro Rocs, I really like the grip of DX Plastic. I think I'll be getting a Roc and an Rocx3 for that extra beef.

Pretty sad at losing my 2 favorite Rocs over the past month.
At what stability do you want it to hold? New/fresh out the box, or just not flippy?

Lightest weight DX Roc I bag is 175g, and it went through the cycle more or less the same as max weight ones. Have managed to keep it for 5 years. If anything it held stability longer than the newer soft embossed DX.

Seems if you like DX Rocs you gotta plan to cycle them and have something like a KC or Champ as the upper bookend.

EDIT: didn't see your post above. Haven't thrown a DX RX3 so interested to see how that works out for you.

I want that fresh flight I'm able to get where it glides straight 300' but has substantial left-finishing fade to hook up around obstacles, especially with some height. I love the worn in straight flight too, and plan on bagging multiples. I'll report back on the Rocx3 comparison some day.

A USDGC champ Rancho roc is probably your best bet, but not the most readily available or most cost effective option. A Z wasp could also work if you want to mix brands.

If you get the F2 or thrower USDGC’s they aren’t too pricey. And even USDGC’s vary in stability from run to run. I’ve got too many of one was interested.

Also, the Millennium Taurus is basically a RocX, and feels just like a premium Rancho.

Maybe this is sacrilege in the Roc thread, but I've really been digging the Discmania Method as more TeeBirdy RocX3.

Is there a translation available for this? I have no idea what you mean.

The Method is a new mid from Discmania.

I'm guessing it's a straight to fade kind of disc, like a fresh Champ Teebird?
