i use this disc as a putter and my friend is totally against me using it as a putter since he thinks that it's a mid-range, what's the verdict guys?

I think it says putt and approach on it, but I use mine as a short mid-range disc. Reason is, it doesn't have that much glide to it. IMO it's a Gator light...way light!
I'd say it's a mid-range.
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.
great for those 200ft of the tee drives,and those under the basket approach shots
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!!
I think the DX version is much better than Champion version for putting and shouldn't rip your finger.
its a mid-range, but I think it works best as a putter--its very much like an XD--
any round(ed) rim disc ......is a putter
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?
how close is it to the rim of the classic?
perhaps, or maybe you through it in tailwinds only, lmao!! i dunno.
The original Roc was an XD with a bead.
