I am using wp super cache and it is a free version to speed up my wordpress site but I know that Wp rocket is a good one too, especially to speed up woocommerce site which I am using now, but it is a paid version without allowing users to use it as free trial.

What do you have any experience with Wp rocket? I want buy this paid version but I am not sure it will be more better than wp super cache?

There are hundreds of caching plugins available for WordPress, and WP-Rocket is probably the most popular paid plugin for few reasons :
- it's compatible with any web hosting plan
- if there is any issue on your site with wp-rocket, you will have support to fix this issue
- it's support other WordPress configurations like multisite, Woocommerce, EasyDigitalDownloads, Polylang etc..
- 1 site license is expensive ($50) but unlimited sites license is affordable for web agencies or wordpress developers who can install wp-rocket on all their clients's sites

But to answer to your last question:
it will be more better than wp super cache?
It should but if your compare it with other caching plugins by running thousands of tests, the difference between them for page loading duration will probably be under 0,01s. So if you are only looking for better performance, you may find the license expensive compared to the performance gain.
There are other good alternatives like Cache Enabler which is a lightweight caching plugin, open-source, developped by keycdn on github.

I'd also suggest Cache Enabler as @VirtuBox said.
In most benchmarks Cache Enabler comes out better overall. Though, WP-Rocket usually takes the top spot.
If what you want is a free caching plugin - Cache Enabler won't let you down in terms of speed.

Why not try Redis if your host supports it?

Paid ones seem always better than free ones.

I am installing this plugin on my WP site to try and comparing.

I am using WP super cache, it is pretty good, I have no chance to use Wp rocket because it requires a fee for that.
