Review: The champion roc is a very nice disc. It is more overstable than the dx rocs I own. Perfect for headwinds and drives under 315 ft.

Until recently I had been using a Champion Classic Roc for all approaches, but decided I needed something that would fly farther, so I started throwing rocs. Since then my game has significantly improved and the amount of discs I use has diminished. The Champion Roc might not be as beginner friendly as a Dx roc, but it is definitely better in the wind. Overall an A+ disc.

Review: discgolfguru.com The Roc is my absolute favorite disc. If it were the only disc I had, I'd still be a happy golfer. It's slightly overstable, but can be thrown pretty straight and far when needed. I've used the Roc as a distance driver with good results, but the Roc's pride is in the midrange and approach. It responds perfectly to movements in the wrist and goes precisely where you want it. It's great for getting around trees and other obstacles in beautiful hyzers and anhyzers (arches); it even rolls pretty good when in a tight spot. Sometimes it may roll too well on a longer shot and roll away from the hole, but that can be compensated for by shooting a little left or throwing more flat and straight. It fades faster than most and tends to curve right for right-backhanders, and curves left, and then roll right, for right-forehanders. I give this disc an A+ and "Best of Breed" in its category.

Review: The champion roc is a very stable midrange that gives you alot of consistency even in the wind. It skips more than most midrange discs and can handle even more power than kc pro plastic. If your a powerful thrower, this is a great midrange. When its thrown really flat and hard it will fly straight with a predictable fade at the end.

Review: I picked one of these bad boys up after having been a big fan of the KC Pro Roc for about 6 months. This is a stable disc with just the slightest fade left at the end of a right-handed backhand drive. Without a doubt my straightest and most dependable mid range disc. This disc seems to go exactly where I will it to every single time. Too bad that they only offer them in a limited run and they tend to go for about $10 more than any other Champion disc. As it is, I am *almost* too afraid to chuck this one on those risky water hazard holes. A must-have for people who are serious about their mid-game.

There are two different molds of this that i have aware of. One is the 2001 usdgc charity disc, and the other is 2002. The 2001 is a little but stiffer plastic that the 2001. The stiffness ads a little stability, but not very noticable in the roc. These both fly very similar to the dx rocs, but are a little bit more stable. They are my #1 mid range disc. I had problems flipping the old rocs over (anhyzer) when throwing full power, but the CE fly very true and straight for me. I currently throw the 2002 model because i tend to like the softer plastic a little better. Because of the durability factor, these have replaced my old rocs in my bag.

My Review:
The CE Roc is a fast, slightly overstable midrange driver. The CE plastic is the same as the rest of the durable CE line. The CE Roc was a limited run of around 1,500 donated to the US Disc Golf Championships. The CE version is faster than the other plastic models currently available. It has a very flat flight plate and its flight path most closely resembles that of the KC. The CE Roc does however have greater resistance to turnover and slightly more low speed fade. Try to imagine a 195g KC Roc and it will probably be close. Thrown flat and hard it will hold a straight flight path and fade slight left for the final 10-15% of its flight. Like most Rocs, the CE will throw very well in windy situations if thrown with the nose down. I would say this is probably the most reliable Roc on the market and has more glide than the other versions. It should be the longest of the Rocs for mid-powered players. I've only thrown 2 rounds with my 179g, but it is now my favorite disc for almost all shots in the 220-300' range.
