I've used it for years for shots from 225 feet and shorter including as my putter. It has a putter rim that's not as tall/thick as the typical putters and is easier for those with shorter fingers to grasp than say an Aviar, Wizard or Magnet. Check out the Zeroline Spike from Latitude 64 as an alternative made with softer material.
not much glide on the classic roc? huh, i thought out of all the putt and approaches, it had quite a bit of glide in comparison. The bead was ruff on that disc and used to rip my finger to shreds, so i sold it. yea, i gave my friend crap for putting with it, cuz i thought it was a midrange exclusively, at least that's how i had used it, but Innova's site clearly states its classification as a Putt & Approach. so the verdict, its a tweener disc, kinda both!!
It's funny how you can pass around the same disc to ten people and 8 out of 10. Will have a diff. opinion on it. I do find it easier to throw than my putter, but with the semi blunt edge. It just seem to drop like a stone when it runs out of gas. I throw the APX and JK Aviar and they have a pretty good glide, so maybe it's just what I'm comparing it to?
