  • Question about the various types of rocs..

    Ontario is understable
    San Marino is straight
    Rancho is slightly overstable
    KC pro is a little more overstable than Rancho

    What about
    Classic Roc
    Super Roc
    and most importantly for my knowledge, the flat roc??

    More overstable
    More overstable
    More overstable

    Anything else?
    ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

      Sorry... I could have added more.

      Classic Roc - I don't throw a bunch so I would have to defer to someone who throws these. I do know that they are more stable than an Ontario.

      Super Roc - these are also more overstable but you can definitely get over on them. They are probably most similar to a NEW KC Pro.

      Flat Roc - this is the most stable of Rocs that I carry in my bag. I flip it and if I get the height and the snap right, it comes back perfectly every time. I also use this for short hyzer shots that most might throw a Gator at.

        I carry 5 Rocs in my bag .. I took my classic Roc out because it was too overstable for what I wanted to do with them. I use my DX Roc for overstable stuffs. I have found my super Roc to be pretty overstable too, although not as bad as my classic. I only just got my Ontario so I haven't had much experience with it yet. but it seems to be overstable also. that could be because it is brand new.

        I;m not sure about a flat roc .. not sure I know what that is. My Classic Roc seems very flat on top, much flatter than all my others.

        I also like Valks and leopards. I have 5 leopards and at least 4 Valks that I carry everywhere. Different weights and types (pro, DX, champ, star etc..)

            I'm assuming he's referring to Ching rocs.

              Maybe he means a Ching roc? Anyway, those start out tastey stable and season nicely to tastey understable! Mmm.

                my KC Roc is super understable now. it is very beat up and I can wrap it right around trees and it won't even fade back when landing at all. It is awesome

                  I do mean the Ching Rocs... though I gave Jamie an understamp that is nearly as flat as the Chings I have.

                  Depending on the plastic of the Ontario, they get very overstable. I have a star that is still stable but a DX that I can practically flip to a roll.

                    Okay... umm in comparison to a kc pro roc then. I throw my KC pro rocs straight with a little fade and sometimes it is not enough for me and actually turns over easily at 175g. Looking for something a tad more overstable than a 180g KC Pro Roc, is this ching roc more or less stable than the 180g KC pro Roc?

                      New, I would say it is more overstable, yes.

                        For overstable, i would use a DX Roc, they are cheap and work best for overstable .. IMO.

                          I believe Ching Rocs are $10 at most places - just a few bucks more and well worth it considering it is more overstable and will stay so for much longer.
