I have a gummy Champ Rhyno that I bought for windy approaches. Really good for that use. I have tried putting with it. I've never seen a disc bounce out of the basket more than this thing does. I think the plastic returns to it's original shape faster than other "soft" plastics do. Once it impacts something, it "springs" back into shape, and bounces out of the basket. I have put it in the basket from pretty far away a few times, but never use it for putts. Even if I have the Rhyno laid up ten feet from the basket, I'll grab my Aviar to finish the job.

That stinks. I was hoping the opposite would be true, that it would absorb the impact better. I guess I'll still try my luck and see how it goes.

Have you tried throwing with a stiffer Rhyno, like one in DX or one without the spring back (SE or R-Pro)? It appears the problem is with your gummy Champ Rhyno is the force with which it springs back. No spring back (DX) or less force on spring back (SE or r-pro) and that should alleviate your problem.

Do you have problems throwing hard with it? The softer the plastic, the more OAT it likely to be imparted on the disc because the force of the throw and snap will flex the disc impart OAT.

the zipper noise is pretty audible, and you can definitely make out the record grooves in the plastic. i'm not sure how the best way to explain the feel is, but they just feel different than a regular gummy rhyno. all of the ones i've had were the same color throughout the disc, and were not pearly.

No problem getting accurate distance with my Rhyno. There's a short 250' hole at a course around here. Automatic birdie with the Rhyno. I've had the thing bounce out of the basket on a 15' putt that went right in the sweet spot of the chains. Like I said, good windy approach disc. I also use a Pig, it can handle a little more power. Never throw a Pig if there is the danger of it rolling down a hill. It will roll down the hill.

This man speaks the truth. If there is a hill even remotely by the basket, it will seek it out and roll....and roll...






And roll...
