These Thrower Rocs are meant to be just that … thrown. So even though you won’t be keeping these behind lock and key, you’ll still look upon them with pride.
For one, the latest Thrower Roc stamp, designed by artist Levi Whitpan, is pretty darn sweet. 8 Roc feathers form a ring atop the disc resembling the flight of a single feather.
Whitpan said the plan was for a simple and clean ring. "Something that complimented the beauty of the plastic itself and the spirit of the USDGC Roc in motion, without being detailed or extravagant," said Whitpan.
He said he had several versions he tinkered with, but this was the final choice. "And the solid feathers seemed perfect for showing off the actual foil color/pattern," said Whitpan, who also designed the new USDGC Roc+ (pictured below).
Next, the plastic colors available are pretty rad. There’s a full array of colors including some wacky blends that might melt your brain. All in all, it’s a Thrower Roc not to be missed.
More about the Thrower Roc:
Thrower Rocs are different from the Collector Series Rocs. Each year, a small number of Rocs do not get used for Collector Series releases. Generally, this is due to minor cosmetic imperfections that do not affect the disc's performance or because we simply had extra discs leftover after all collector series Rocs were produced and sold. These discs vary in age and appearance, adding to their mystique, collectability, and appeal. We refer to them simply as “Throwers”.
