i like the feel of the roc+ mold, but am still unsure of the slanted inner rim. was this slanted rim the only change in the mold? what was the purpose of the change, a different feel? what is the future of the mold, and what type of feedback are you getting from the team as well as the public?
Everything else is the same except it allows us to make heavier discs without as much weighting agent, and discs that feel better in the hand to some. The reaction is mixed. Long time Roc throwers are the most likely to not like it. They like the Roc the way it normally is. Players who didn't like the relatively small Roc rim, like the fuller feel of the + version. I am in this catagory, and prefer the + version. Now, people like me will be able to get the benefit of throwing a Roc for their game. It will likely be used in a limited capacity like R-Pro or a limited variation in some other material like Champion, which is what I prefer. Only R-Pro is main stream.
