Let's talk star rhynos... again

The first time I felt up a star rhyno was a couple of years ago or so and if I recall correctly, it was super stiff and painfully domey. Today I was at my local disc shop and for whatever reason I pulled a star rhyno off the shelf and was surprised to find that it was extremely gummy and nicely grippy. I could fold it like a taco with one hand. It was also reasonably flat, though it did have that annoying nipple on the top.

I was also a little surprised to find that it was the Ontario mold... I guess I had always assumed that they weren't producing these anymore.

Is this part of a new run where they've altered the star plastic or something? Or have they always been super gummy and I'm just remembering the old ones wrong? Does anyone know anything about these, and has anyone thrown them?

Gummy Star Rhyno was a CFR disc a few years back.

But it wasn't a CFR disc, it had the standard star stamp. This is not a shop that carries older discs...

So why is the Star Rhyno Marshall Street's worst-selling Rhyno?

So I went back to the shop and got the gummy Ontario star rhyno. It's pretty freaking awesome. I went out and abused it for awhile today... it seems to have more glide than the semi-gummy pearly Ontario champs I typically use (and love)... flies dead straight with excellent stability even into a headwind. I'm kind of surprised these things don't get more love...

Found one of these at a local shop today. I had no idea they existed. Haven't thrown it yet but I'm already making plans to permanently fit it in my bag somehow. I normally play with XG champs, maybe it can be a rainy day disc. It's white with this weird blueish marbling along the rim. Did anyone find out what the deal is with the Ontario tooling? Old disc/new stamp?
