I'm 61 and have never been known for my distance so I would say lower arm speed.

i really prefer to keep my Rocs to the same mold and same general dome/wing profile.

Rancho Champ, 3-4 KC Rocs (Ranchos, obviously), sometimes with an old bonus Ontario for added flip and glide.

I have a hyk dyed Roc3 that is not very stable at all, possibly older, think that is an Ontario? It's not even very best and flies more like a fresh dx flat roc than a star roc3.

Pretty sure the Roc3 only has one tooling. If it's a Roc and tooled Ontario, it's a Roc. If you're not sure what mold it is, it could be a Cobra.

Ontario mold DX Cobras from the 90s were flat and rather stiff, not as stiff as a stiff Roc though but close.

No it says R3, it is awesome, just surprised to hyzerflip it straight when it barely hit a rock, the roc, 3. 😅

You might want to stop throwing it then. It's probably pretty rare.

Some of the early Roc3s in the 3x to 4x era weren’t stable at all and flipped easily. This was about the time I was getting back into disc golf and I had picked some up at an ATX PiAS. I recall the guy telling me how everybody was complaining of them not being stable and worrying of a possible “re-tool.”

Is your flippy Roc3 having a little bit of a plus-mold feel? Most of the ones I have from that era do have a little plussy feel.

Just ordered a PFN dx roc from marshal street. $20 base plastic disc for my first time trying a mold is dumb but needed to hit free shipping threshold
