  • Speedi 4

    The first number is the speed of the disc. It can range from 1-14. Putters are rated 1-3 and are designed to function at low speeds any player can use. Mid range discs are 4-5 and require more speed when thrown to achieve their desired results. A fairway driver will be speed 6-8, these discs fly mostly straight. Discs that are speed 9 and above are classified as distance drivers. Throwing a distance driver takes a significant amount of power to get up to speed, players are rewarded with additional distance if they learn to control these discs. New players are cautioned that speed does not equal distance. Due to the difficulty of controlling higher speed discs, a beginner could find that a light weight disc with a speed of 6 or 7 could fly farther for them than a max distance driver with a speed of 13. In fact most new players should learn by throwing putters only so they can develop the proper form. After a few weeks they'll begin to get reliable results and are ready ×

  • glidei 4

    This second rating is numbered 1 – 6. Glide describes a disc’s ability to remain in flight. Discs with higher glide ratings will fly further than discs rated lower in this category. A high glide rating is good when the goal is distance, but can have the wrong effect for putts and approach shots. Sometimes overshooting the basket can be worse than not making it far enough. Low glide ratings such as 1 or 2 are popular with upshot putters because they don't fly for distance but for a little extra control. Glide is different for different kinds of discs as well. A putter with a glide of 4 will stay airborne much longer than distance drivers with a glide of 4 ×

  • Turni 0

    Third in Innova’s flight rating system is turn. Turn is rated from 1 to -5?, with -5 being the most understable. The lower the numer, the more striking turn will result. A newer, slower-throwing disc golfer using an understable disc with a ‘high’ negative turn rating will enjoy great distance, as the disc isn’t going to fade as quickly. Also, players whose farthest throw is 200 feet or less probably won’t notice any turn in the flightpath. Once a player gets more speed and power, they will see their understable discs start turning to the right at the beginning of the flight before fading to the left at the end. Discs rated -4 or -5 are popularly used for rollover or roller throws by experienced players. Some discs have 0 turn which means that they'll start to fade when they run out of speed during the flight and at no point will they turn. It's important to carry at least one disc with a high turn rating in your bag for rounds. ×

  • Fadei 3

    This last rating category ranges from 0 to 5; with a disc rated 0 being the straightest finishing, while a disc rated 5 fading the most during the last portion of the flight. Even discs rated lowest in turn will still ‘fade’ as the disc slows at the end of the flight. A disc with a higher fade rating is useful for a hole with a dogleg. Straight finishing discs are great for control, discs with little fade are normal. If you're a Right-hand backhand thrower you'll find that almost every disc wants to fade to the left at the end of your flight. Discs with a 4 or 5 fade rating are excellent in heavy winds. They sacrifice a little of the distance but make sure that the disc won't do anything unexpected. Discs with a low fade are more susceptible to being affected by the wind. ×

Flight path

Release angle

The illustrated disc flight line is based on the manufacturer field testing results, during its development process. So, to level the playing field we chose to put a different spin on things for such visual illustrations. Sticking to the manufacturer's test results will offer you a good baseline for how that particular disc will fly.

Product Description

The Innova DX Roc Color Glow 2022 Philo Brathwaite Tour Series Mid is a stable to overstable high glide disc. This is what so many folks learn on for their first disc and it's what they throw forever. The stamp features a robotic roc hybrid flying into battle, crying out with the Philo Destroyer stamp riding its back. It's one of the coolest looking discs out there. And if that wasn't enough, it's going to glow in the dark too!

The flight path of the Roc is short, straight, and stable. It's an excellent forehand or backhand disc and in the early stages it's going to hyzer out on you. As you hit rocks, chains, and trees your Roc will begin to get some nicks in the side and have much less of a fade at the end. When it beats in or seasons, it's going to have a straight, smooth finish and can be your tunnel shot disc. This is a buttery mid that you can rely on in the 75-250 foot range. Every time you need more than a putter or less than a fairway driver, reach for your Philo Roc. This disc is perfect no matter the skill levels involved, you'll find beginners and world champions finding success with this disc. You will learn angle control with it and throw it on a hyzer line to bend it around trees, or throw it on an anny to give it time to level out and slowly move to the side. The Roc will rarely flip, unless you really beat it in for years, then it will get flippy for you.

DX Plastic with Color Glow is a baseline blend from Innova. It's not meant to be thrown as hard as you can, it's a disc that gets you from start to finish gradually and with lots of control. The glow in the dark will be soft, just like the throws you're going to be putting into this midrange. As the plastic gets too worn you can have your Rocs in cycles, with an overstable, stable, and understable.

You're going to love the long glidey shots you get with the Roc. But this isn't just a cool disc that's going to glow in the dark and be your main midrange. It's also a way to support Philo Brathwaite as he competes in disc golf tournaments and commentates as well! A good portion of the money you spend on this disc makes it way to him. You get a disc that you can manipulate, love throwing, and lower your scores. And you get to help out a fellow disc golfer at the same time. Snag one of these today and see why this classic disc is still so popular today.
