The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I've noticed some people on this page refer to flat top discs verses (I guess) normal discs.  For example someone asked if the dx roc was a flat top?  Do disc manufactures do this, or maybe I'm way off base?  Basically what I am wondering is, do manufactures make a particular disc normally and then some with a flatter top?  Thanks for the input.

The "Ring of Rocs" was a full color stamped disc.

It's kinda annoying that there should even be so many questions about molds. Can't Innova control their process any better? 


I learned my game on 'flat tops' and now have to go through hoops if I should have to replace my 11X Firebird or 'old mold' Beasts.  I also notice the new champion Panthers are much domey-er than earlier.


It's almost enough to make me throw Discraft!

Tate N we did not say all ROC's are FT's apparently you have never seen a CHING ROC with the full color stamp process. Take a look at any of the Ring of ROCs , Buddah , Peace sign , Skull and tell me these are not flat tops!
I don't really know about who has what molds, but I do know that how fast the platsic dries or cools... as well as the plastic being used can make the disc flatter on top.
@Brett: I WAS enough to get 4 Discraft discs in my bag. Next to my 11x Firebird and my CE Valk.
Discraft has flat and domey discs as well I have had 3 150 Class Cyclone Pro D  all flat tops but the two 173 Pro D cyclones I had have been domey.
The DX 'Rancho' ROC is flat topped & one of my favorite flyers. Long, super- straight with minimum fade at end of flight. Awesome disc!
