This is anarchy.

Keep in mind this only works if the go-to Roc is your 3. The seasoned Roc slot has to be three in order for 3 to mean seasoned Roc. So if you have a four Roc cycle with a Champ, a fresh KC, seasoned KC and turnover DX you would have a 5-4-3-1. A Fresh KC, seasoned DX, slightly understable DX and turnover DX would be a 4-3-2-1. A tbird888 cycle would be a 5-3-1 (could be a 4-3-1 or a 5-3-2 or a 4-3-2 as well.) If you run a tbird888 cycle and call it a 3-2-1, the numbers no longer mean anything because now your seasoned Roc is two, not three.

It's funny you break it down like that. I know you're talking about my simple setup post, but I personally bag four.

Fresh KC CG > 2 sweet spot Ranchos (DX and KC but throw them interchangeably - thank you ODRB for the safety net) > turnover Ontario

When I talk about it I say I run a three Roc cycle but carry four because I have two #3s. I mean 2 -#3s...

Why can’t everybody assume you got a flippy one, a straight one, and a fresh one, and any others are assumed to be seasoning into straight or flippy?

When I talk about it I say I run a three Roc cycle but carry four because I have two #3s. I mean 2 -#3s...
So do you throw both of the sweet spot Rocs? If so, do they have different roles? Or is it just a either/or kind of thing?

I ask because for about a decade I had a three Roc cycle with six discs. I had two fresh, two seasoned and two turnover Rocs, but I only actually threw three (one of each.) The others were backups. It wasn't a very good system, I had some Rocs that were in my bag for a long time that didn't get thrown.

I gradually took the fresh backup out; the seasoned backup usually wasn't broken in all the way so it was actually a "not exactly fresh but not exactly seasoned" Roc that could back up both the fresh and seasoned Roc. The turnover Rocs had the same issue, the main turnover was flippier than the backup. At that point I started considering it a five Roc cycle, so I don't have any "along for the ride" strict backups anymore.

I'm still not very good at the cycle; I throw the seasoned Roc most of the time. More than once I've realized that my main (3) Roc was actually flippier than my understable (2) Roc. I just put more hyzer on them and keep throwing them until they really start to get me in trouble. Truth be told my main Roc right now should probably be cycled, but it hasn't gotten me in enough trouble to make me do that yet.
