I like my OS mids on the flat side, which is why a flat Z Wasp is my "1" Roc. My "2" Roc is a DX Rancho with a slight dome to it, the other 2 are Comets. "3" is a small domed Z, while "4" is a beat Elite X with a nice dome. I have some 2010 DX Ontarios and they could be my "3" Roc, but they got a bit squirrely after I flat topped them, so the Comet has taken that role, while I figure out where my KCs (2 Whites and 2 Color Glows) and my other DX Ranchos fit in. Anyone have any experience with Tauruses?

The VRoc is as much a Roc as a Buzzz is a Wasp. Roc3 is to a Roc, what a Thunderbird is to a Teebird.

I threw the Buzzz before I threw Rocs. The Roc just felt and flew better for me.

Last fall I had the Buzzz itch again, so I bought a 177 X. Threw it for a while, did fine, but I traded it off. I'm not going down any more mid range tangent roads. I'm happy with Rocs, I know Rocs, and when I screw up a shot, I know the discs well enough to read my own mistake.

The only mids I own are Rocs and Comets, (and 2 Roc3's that are never bagged). And every time I get the itch to try a new mid, I look in the mirror and say, really? You think that is going to do something magical? So I go and buy a pretty new Roc and I'm happy again.

I use a Z Wasp for my #1 Roc, 1-3 DX Ranchos and then a Z Comet. Tauruses are solid, very similar to a Champ Roc or Z Wasp.

My thoughts on the topic exactly. I had a bit of an itch a month or two ago to try some MD3s.. and decided that would be stupid because Rocs already work so well for me. #ROCS4LYFE

Every thread is better with pictures.
Here is the family: from left to right is my youngest 1, the eldest 4, then 3, and 2. All PFN, sharp nosed, low dome, stiff KCs with rainbow stamps.

I'm contemplating putting rocs back in my bag in the offseason, at least for a little while. Over the years I've bounced back and forth between roc and comet - but there's just something that hits me sometimes, and I love baseline/midgrade plastic for putters and mids, and I want to throw rocs again.

Smart. DX and KC Rocs are the magic.

I changed from emac truths to rocs recently because I felt that
emacs were difficult to range and that the flight was too different than comets flight (more like driver). So here is my current midrange lineup:

Big Z Comet (hyzer flip and tailwinds)
Dx Roc (straight to slightly os, holds pretty much any line)
Star Rancho Roc (fresh OS roc flight)
Mvp Deflector (meathook)

I also have another dx as a backup.

I just found 3 06 USDGC rocs on the Bay and scooped them up. They are so hard to come by now a days. By far my favorite run of Champ Rocs. Overstable with just enough dome to be glidey but still feel flat in the hand. I have been throwing one for 6-7 years and it's still doesn't want to turn.

I also have a star baby roc that I'm debating whether or not to throw. It's still in the bag, but I feel like those bad boys are meant to fly.
