There have been many different types of Rocs throughout the years, but this was a great addition. Another reason is Roc's are more stable out of the box, so by beating them in, you can cover a slightly wider range than Buzzz's (you can beat a Roc until it's flippy, it's tough to find a Buzzz as stable as a champ Roc3). Are there differing flight characteristics between them? The VRoc is a slightly more under stable disc than the basic roc, but this is the one i lease recommend (just an opinion). Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Anonymous I originally picked up a 180g McPro Roc3 to have something more overstable, but then lost the dx roc and started using Roc3 for everything. I recommend the DX, this disc is weird In the way that as it breaks in it doesn’t really lose its flight characteristics. Roc3 – The Roc3 is a variation of the flagship Roc mold. Roc3's are generally flatter (thus the "3" top, which became Innova jargon for flat-top) and slightly straighter. It has almost no fade on it at all. This was actually exchanged out for a different disc per request!
I've noticed that the Star Rancho Roc is listed at the Innova online pro shop as an out of production model (but available at the F2 store). My roc is much more overstable, but people say that this shouldn't really be the case.
The Innova RocX3 is the most overstable version of the popular Roc midrange. The roc3 is just a faster disc. Is the mold just more os than rancho? Idk why people seem to think a roc3 fades harder than a traditional roc. Are they retooling the mold again? This new Roc 3 claims to be perfect for everything, from controlled approaches to midrange drives. In my experience Roc3s are flatter, faster, and straighter than a Roc in similar plastic. Or not making it in Star for some reason? Flat top KC is very straight and is has a very similar flight to a new dx roc3. I also wonder about this. It flies flat and straight and always fades left. Whatcha interested in?
If you want more stability get a kc pro roc, wasp, or something else. Double stamps/F2's exist, and are cheaper, but are still hard to come by). I've thrown KC Pro Rocs for years and recently tried a Roc3. My experience (I bag a Star Roc3 and a DX Roc)! I have probably 3 champs and 11 or 12 McPros, and they are all a bit different, Hey, any chance that you know what their 'V' technology stands for?
In my opinion mcpro flies the closest to the flat top rocs, but the feel just isn't quite the same. Champs have a good deal of stability and will hold that for the longest. In terms of stability of regular production from overstable to least overstable it goes champ->mcpro->kc->dx->dx roc3. Find the disc you are looking for from our live inventory of 49,550discs! I think the intent was to make it slide off the fingers cleaner or something, I don't hear many people say good things about them.Innova lists the Roc3 as a 5 speed, where I believe the Roc is a 4 speed. This disc can take and hold the angle of release, even into a headwind. Similar thing for me except i'd thrown roc3's for years and recently tried a KC and think I prefer the dome/difference in flight with the KC. Does anyone have any experience breaking in a Discmania Md3? The one I have isn't particularly overstable, but it does fade more reliably than the dx. They hold straight with some decent fade at the end new. Detail. They season faster than Mcpro/KC. Star Roc3 177g.
Unfortunately you can't find those very easily so I bag roc3s instead. Does anyone know what the deal is? I have two Rocs in my bag, one in Star and one in DX. Personally I do not carry anything but baseline mids except for a meathook. BUY NOW. My favorite by far is the flat top kc pro. I can really torque down on this disc and it does not turn over. Just curious what the difference between a VAviar and an Aviar is. When I would throw it with a good amount of power ,flat or with hyzer, it would turn over or finish with little to no fade. Wish OTB would find some more of that plastic so I could buy a few more! Compared with other Roc versions, the X3 is a low profile and hefty rim that provide it with extra stability. Hit me with some knowledge on the differences in flight between your run of the mill Rancho DX or KC and the DX/McPro/Champ versions of the Roc3. So for the original Roc (not the Roc3 or X3 or vroc, just the original one), can someone explain to me the difference between the different molds? I mainly throw dx/kc pro rocs, and I bought a 180g champ roc3 to see what the hype was about. They will season slower and IMO it is the best roc for cycling. Idk why people seem to think a roc3 fades harder than a traditional roc. Current mid lineup for me - which I feel really good about now - from most US to most OS:Worn DX RocFairly new Flat top KCP RocFresh KCP RocMFC Roc3. I'd compare it more to the old champ sharks, but with more high speed stability. Straight with a baby fade. Fast shipping as always, Michael G. I've had both. The Roc3 is a five speed disc with about the same characteristics. (verified owner) – July 6, 2020. I've got a MFC Roc3 that is just super straight. level 2 The jolly launcher plastic is also good stuff. Innova claims that this is the ideal midrange for windy conditions and forehand throws. In terms of shape, I don't see much of a diference in mine. I think I know what you're talking about. You can check the bottom of the disc to see which one it is. I originally picked up a 180g McPro Roc3 to have something more overstable, but then lost the dx roc and started using Roc3 for everything. Compared with other Roc versions, the X3 is a low profile and hefty rim that provide it with extra stability. I have seven rocs total 2 roc3s, a san marino roc, a vrock, a metal flake roc3 and a couple of rocs to hanging up. Champion Details. See what Innova has to say about the mold here, Ross I like it for tight short tunnel shots, because it flies super straight. Great disc, as always a great buying experience on OTB! They do not have as much fade as them out of the box. In my experience Roc3s are flatter, faster, and straighter than a Roc in similar plastic. Originally the roc3 was the first roc in champ outside the usdgc runs. I use a combination of rocs and roc3s right now. Shout-out to Samuel Aldrich! MORE INFO.
It's a disappointment IMO. It provides accuracy at any range. They had all the years Kenny won the world championship printed on them. McPros have a mild dome and typically fade a little more than a regular rancho roc. Close. It's the straightest disc I have ever thrown and it will hold just about any line you put it on. Seems to 'dump' a little harder instead of glide left - when comparing to a regular roc. There have been many different types of Rocs throughout the years, but this was a great addition. Dx Roc has a mild dome with great glide. Before I added this one to the bag the only “stable” to “overstable” mid I had was a Champ Roc3 171g. All Rights Reserved. (verified owner) – November 5, 2020. The same throw with the Roc3 will be faster and fade/drop left and down more quickly. Champion R3's start out pretty stable and will beat in to pretty straight with SOME fade, I've found the glow and MFC's to be a tick more stable than the normal champ runs. In my experience what I think it might be is that for most shots with Roc3 I'm throwing them much harder with much more spin. Aka, more speed. The Roc ages gradually and predictably. This seems odd to me. They are just so freaking straight on the LSS portion of the flight, with a little bit of HSS turn.
