I don't think they are as flat but I haven't looked it up... These have the (very) small healthy dome that you find on embossed star Roc3.

I fell in love and now I don't see a reason too look any further. Hyzerflip to pure laser after a couple of trees. Just bend em straight every now and then, awesome.

Flat top rocs are as the name states flat topped where as the roc3 has just a very mild dome. To me roc3's have a bit better glide and hold their flight characteristics longer. Flat top rocs for me tend to break in a bit quicker. They are very similar molds but I would say that the roc3 is the slightly superior mold.

I did not notice but you are right, my new spare flat top Roc is notebly flatter than my old one, and the star Roc3. I heard the DX Roc3 are flatter than Star?

However there is also a difference in rim between the Roc and Roc3? I assume this is why the flat top roc glides as well as the roc3, even though it is flatter as you say!

No clue on which roc3's will be the flattest. I have only thrown the McPro roc3's for any meaningful amount of time. I currently dont throw the roc3 but thats just because I lost the only old one I had, back when the McPro plasitc wasnt as waxy and grippy. I do currently throw a KC Flat Top roc as my straight to very slightly overstable roc. I dont really care what kind of roc I throw, all I care about is how the plastic feels and how the dome is. The mold is secondary since I can find a place for any flight of a roc in my bag.

I have some FAF board flat Star Roc3s and some Champion Roc3s (McBeth 3x, I think) that aren't quite as board flat, but are still pretty flat.

Side note: And it won't be long before we're reading these posts in the Roc3 thread, a they keep this Roc thread "pure"...

From what I have seen for the Champ Roc3s it seems the max weights are flat as a board, the lower in weight they go the less flat they are but I would never call my 165 Champ Roc3 domey, just not as flat as my 180s. If that makes sense. All the Champ Roc3s I have are the proto or Big Bird stamped runs.

I use my Roc3s as my OS Roc and old DX Rocs for everything else Roc related.

I mean we should be able to openly discuss the differences of a roc and a roc3 in this thread.

Interesting that you use a roc3 as your OS roc and not a rancho. Are you throwing a freak of a roc3 or do you just have a lower arm speed or something else.
