To make the best disc golf packs and elevate the sport of disc golf.
We imagine that our story starts out no different than any of yours – with a mild interest that grew into an overwhelming obsession with the flying disc. In fact, we’d venture to say that most of you are the obsessive type like ourselves. As it turns out, we’re also obsessed with how we interact with discs and, more specifically, with making backpacks.
Pound is a product-driven company committed to evolving with and elevating the sport of disc golf. As disc technology and emerging talent continue to redefine the boundaries of the sport, equipment and course design struggle to keep up. In order to develop products that will not only keep up with but also help redefine the sport, Pound utilizes the latest in backpack design technology. From 3-D modeling to technical materials, Pound utilizes current technology to push product development beyond the current boundaries.
However, fancy software and high-tech materials mean nothing if you’re not part of the actual building and testing of the bags. That’s why we take a hands-on approach to design, carrying out every aspect of the development process in-house. From the initial sketch to 3-D models and pattern sets, we cut the materials and sew the prototypes together. The prototypes undergo testing in the field, ensuring that design and materials come together to achieve their ultimate goal – performing for players under all conditions
We guarantee all our packs against defects in materials and workmanship for life. All you have to do is ship us the pack - we’ll repair it and send it back to you free of charge. Repairs that are not the result of manufacturer defects are also offered for a reasonable fee. Regardless of the cause of your issue, Pound will see that you and your pack are back on the course as soon as possible.
There you have it the three disc golf items that should be on everybody's wish list.
You either throw them or you don't but you have probably said, is it more or less stable than a Roc?

You either throw them or you don't but you have probably said, is it more or less stable than a Roc?
This blog is supported by Dude Clothing if you want to support Disc Golf Idaho and need new disc golf gear please click though to dude above.
The Roc has been the go to midrange for a huge percentage of the best players in the world. Before everyone was committed to a brand almost every pro in the game had a Roc in their bag.
below is two great quotes about THE ONE TRUE ROC and some history on this beloved disc. Thank you to www.dgcoursereview.com message board for some of the Information below.
"There are moments in disc golf where sponsors are forgotten, politics evaporate, and the love of the game shines through. This was one of those moments. @schusterick introduced me to The One True Roc today. I had never heard of it. That's because I started shooting disc golf about 3 years ago, which is apparently about how long this disc has been languishing in @sockibomb13 's basement for.”
The Flight Record
“As I was told. The One True Roc is a disc has been passed along for more than 2 decades by now. I forget who started the tradition. I can say that the founding fathers of disc golf have signed it as well as many of disc golf’s most beloved champions. The One True Roc is a symbol of acceptance as one of disc golfs greats by its peers. The idea is once you have, you sign it, use it sparingly and pass it along to the next golfer you feel is worthy. Obviously should you lose it or even worse sell it, death is the penalty.
ric ric unburied this lost treasure. It seems soon after I had it and passed it along it vanished. May the tradition continue and thrive. Fly on➡”
Types of Rocs:
-Original Roc - “Wings & Rings”, named because of the logo,- flat XD style Roc, made in San Marino
-Classic San Marino Roc - original dome, made in San Marino. The San Marino was more like the Rancho than the Ontario
-Classic Ontario Roc - slightly more domey, made in Ontario
-New Classic Roc - The Classic Roc is still in limited production and will be available from time to time. It is now in the category of an all-around disc. The two closest discs to it are the XD (not quite as stable) and the Ching Sniper which is a little faster and a little more stable.
-Proto KC Roc - it has the disc going through the Innova logo and reads "the Choice of Champions."
-After Proto KC Roc - Has a bar through it; it came just after the Proto KC Rocs.
-Original KC Roc - made in Rancho Cucamonga. The first run KC Rocs have a bar going through the Innova logo and reads "Champion Discs."
-KC Roc - made in Rancho Cucamonga. (The number of Xs refers to the number of years that Climo is listed as World Champion. Eg.- 9 times = 9x.)
-Super Roc - made in Rancho Cucamonga. The "Rancho" mold is identical to that of the USDGC Champion Roc, the KC Pro Roc and the staple, DX Roc. The plastic is sleek and grippy like old school Pro Line material. The Super Roc will provide a unique feel and enhanced durability. Sales of these discs will help support the 2004 PDGA World Championships in Iowa.
-Special Edition (SE) Roc - made in Rancho Cucamonga
-Special Edition (SE) Super Roc (178-180g) - made in Rancho Cucamonga
-Champion Edition (CE) Roc - made for the USDGC.
o2001 version is the Rancho, sharper nose (i.e.- not blunt). Most overstable.
o2002- regular blunt nose. Least overstable of the CE Rocs
o2003- is the blunter nose KC 8x mold
o2004 – blunt nose
o2005- the "pre-release" run of 1000 '05s are a remake of the Ontario mold , as are the Special Blends (SBs). Since the SBs were advertised as straighter than the regular '05s, my guess is they're not blunt.
-Pro Roc (used to be the Super Roc). Available in SE plastic in 2004.
·All of the discs referred to by the city are not of the old style mold. The classic Roc was subsequently produced from the old original mold, or one like it, for those that craved the old disc. The "new" type of Roc has been produced with three different city names on the bottom, first San Marino, then Ontario, and now Rancho Cucamonga.
·The flat XD style Roc (sometimes referred to as the Wings & Rings Roc) and the original dome Roc were made in San Marino. Then came the slightly more domey Ontario Roc. Now Innova has gone back to the flatter dome a la
San Marino Roc, and they are stamped with Rancho Cucamonga and this includes all KC Rocs, Super Rocs, and
the ever sought after Original KC Rocs and Special Edition Rocs. Finally to further complicate things there are some San Marino Rocs (both XD style and domed style) that some refer to as "triple ring Rocs." Look at the under side and in the middle you will see 3 distinct rings.
·Different KC Rocs have different characteristics. The 8x are stable. The 9x are understable.
History of the different kinds of Rocs:
1) Original Roc 21.2 cm diameter - narrow rim, one of the first discs with a bead, and was basically a beaded version
of the XD. This disc was first released around 1987, and discontinued around 1992.
2) Classic Roc - was a re-release of the original mold and came out around 1995 (I think)
3) New mold Roc - which we have several variations of today - is a 21.7 cm disc and was first released in '88/89.
Basically they beefed up the rim of the original and made it significantly more stable.
3.1) San Marino Early runs were made in San Marino, CA (and are the most sought after - selling for $50+ on eBay). Early runs had the same "wings n rings" stamp as the original mold, and had just a little dome to the flight plate. “A couple runs in '91/92 were super flat and hard - the best rocs they ever made, IMO.”
·The San Marino was more like the Rancho than the Ontario. (Dave D.)
3.2) Ontario Manufacturing was moved to Ontario, CA and a new mold was produced around 1994/95. These runs tended to be just a little domier in general than most San Marino's - but were still awesome straight flyers.
3.3) Rancho Cucamonga Rocs. The Rancho Cucamonga Rocs were yet another version/mold of the same disc - and early runs had retained the shape of those early 90's runs of San Marino's Hard and Flat and very stable.
3.4) KC Rocs The onset of the KC plastic has produced a number of variations of the new style Roc (I think all Rancho mold's - with a slightly different plastic) I can't really speak to the quality or flight variations of the Ranchos/ or KC's as I haven't gotten through my stack of San Marino's yet
3.5) Pro (SE) Rocs in 2004. The Pro Roc should be available Mar 2004. The Pro Roc is overstable in tests. Pro Rocs were made from the standard DX Rancho mold, which is the more stable version. The "Rancho" mold is identical to that of the USDGC Champion Roc, the KC Pro Roc and the staple, DX Roc. The plastic is sleek and grippy like old school Pro Line material. The Super Roc will provide a unique feel and enhanced durability. Sales of these discs will help support the 2004 PDGA World Championships in Iowa.
·With the proto-Rancho and the proto-KC Roc; there is a difference between the two. The proto-Rancho was made in heavier weights only and had an Innova choice of champions rainbow stamp, the disc came in white only and has a disc through the logo. The proto KC is similar but has an enormous nipple that actually indents the top of the disc (exactly like the 8 time KC Roc). The logo was also similar but there are differences there as well. The Innova stamp doesn't say choice of champions and is a bar through the logo and not a disc. (from Joyup Lee)
2003 more stable than 2002. (Dave D., 3/5/03)
·The "Star" Rocs are likely to be pretty hot for several reasons. They look and feel great. This is also the true "first run" of Star Rocs since Innova created the line. Star Rocs are stable (not overstable) like the Special Blend. They fly straighter and hold an incredible line.
·Star Rocs are pretty much the standard "Rancho" mold.
·Special Blend is more the "Ontario-style" mold, making them less stable than regular Champion or Glow. Special Blend Rocs should also prove popular as this is quite likely the final run of Special Blend discs. These, like the Star Rocs, are pretty straight flyers. Both gold and silver Special Blend Rocs are available. They are flippin' sweet.
·Regular Champion and Glow are all overstable pigs. If you prefer a meat hook, here you go.
·There was only one, truly clear disc. It weighs 180 and has a ghost "Eye Roc" stamp. Its whereabouts shall remain unknown at this time.
The numbers referenced refer to post #s on the PDGA Discussion Board.

Dave on the Roc
The Roc is simply the best, most versatile mid-range disc ever made. It provides accuracy at any range. This disc can take and hold the angle of release, even into a headwind. It can be used for driving, upshots, straight shots, hyzer shots or anhyzers. The Roc ages gradually and predictably. If you’re not sure what disc to throw, choose the Roc.
Santa Cruz, Ca
This weeks great course takes us to Santa Cruz, Ca and the historic Delaveaga park or better known as DELA. There has been so much said about this course but the one thing I know is there is not a single tee shot on this course that is not fun. Fair may not be a word to describe DELA but I guarantee you when you get done with a round there the first thing you will want to do is play it again.
All holes are considered par 3 at DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course. In the long pin arrangement the SSA for DeLa is usually close to a par round (depending on conditions). Therefore, a par round at DeLaveaga in the longer set-up is roughly equivalent to a 1000-rated round.
My top 4
4. Hole 6
Hole 6 is the first hole I really look forward to playing and who wouldn't like a a 413ft hole that you can throw a putter or midrange to.
Avery Explains hole 6
3. Hole 17 Gravity
Hole 17 is one of my favorite holes at DELA. Throw for the ace and hope to save par throw away from the basket and play the hill like John Baldwin and tap in for a two.
2. Hole 27
"DeLaveaga’s hole 27 is truly the “Top of the World,” and is perhaps the most famous disc golf hole on the entire planet Earth (the 3 pin locations for this hole are indicated in the above image). Originally the 3rd hole of the 1984 course, this hole combines challenges of altitude, distance, and wind with some notable limitations in available lines from the tree-scape. There is no question that familiarity breeds competence on this hole, and it is one of several holes at DeLaveaga that is commonly viewed as favoring local players. It is common for locals to throw their entire bag on 27 at the end of a practice round. Errant throws from Top of the World are common, and it is important for safety reasons to call out “fore” and the number of the hole (or parking lot) the errant throw is going toward. When you play 27"
