I am an Innova disc thrower and i have finally started branching out to rolling the disc for those really long distance shots..I was wondering if there was anyone who had some experience throwing Innova rollers and could recommend a disc that would work like discraft's stratus, or better...

Any beat up criver you already own is the best disc to use to start and best of all, you don't need to buy a new disc.

Fresh off the shelf - a Champion Valkyrie, Beast or Roadrunner will do the job. I use lighter weights as they are easier to flip up.
I've rolled forever and used Innova except Discraft Eclipses for a while. I'm using a beat 172g Champ Boss. Monarchs are great. I used a champ Beast for a long time until they became too unstable. I like to land a roller pretty upright and stable so it holds a line. Valkyries are great too. The first run star stamps were the best rollers ever. I have used Cobras ans some Stingrays in the old days. When champ plastic came out I used a T-bird and a TL for a year or so after the first run Valks ran out. Very long range and straight. Practice different discs and try to have a consistent release so then you fit the disc for your throw.
am I the only person who throws a roller with a kc pro roc in 'get out of trouble' situations?
Try the roadrunner or stingray
glad to hear it. Inside of 100 ft or so they're just so reliable for me, but I really never have seen anyone else use them for this purpose.
I use a dx rancho roc for shots of this nature. I get down on a knee and flick them either left or right handed nearly straight up and down (depending on how far I need them to go before they curl off, or if I want them to curl off at all). Sometimes I can do this type of shot and use less spin and get the disc to go straight and then slow down and fall over dead on that line. I probably wouldn't use it in a round yet though.
I like my sidewinder, flys good and rolls like a mother.
True, but useless statement of the day: Rollers are fun to throw.
i like sidewinders for a roller
a broken in dga rogue is good for me , i know it isn't innova but the rogue seems to be my longest roller right now .
I have a slighly beat up Champion RoadRunner that works Great !!!
