As someone who recently discovered and fell in love with Rhynos, I have been asking myself the same question. I started w/ two DX Rhynos and then bought a gummier Champ Rhyno and traded for another Champ Rhyno, a little bit stiffer. I love the Champion plastic ones for driving off the tee on short holes and short mid-range shots, especially at my home course which is heavily wooded. The DX ones are my go-tos for putting b/c they feel much better in the hand, but they are so damn HARD! I really, really wish I had 50-70 bucks to drop on an SE Rhyno b/c from what I understand, that's where it's at when it comes to Rhynos...great feel/grip and soft so as to not bounce out of the basket.

So...I'm not reallly answering your question above...more like adding to it...are SE Rhynos worth the dough?

I guess I should clarify that I want a putter to putt with, not necessarily hang on the wall.

Push putt. I currently use a lighter weight (166) Pro for putting.

I'd say try a ProLine. They're very nice. Grippy and flexy and a good bit cheaper than SE.

I have a few of the white Pro Rhyno's from DGV.
They absolutely do not feel like R-poop.
A little stiffer and grippy, but not rubbery.

Disclaimer: I am not a Rhyno expert and don't throw them. I do, however seriously HATE R-pro. These do NOT feel like R-Pro to me.
Just my .02

Molnar is not a fraud. His pricing and sales tactics sometimes can be debatable, but he sells good stuff. I have bought tons of stuff from him that would never be listed on his site.

So you don't throw them...are they in your stash for sale/trade?

When the Soft Rhyno came out in the late '90s, I loved them, adopted it as my main putter, and bought ten for practice. Still have 'em. Two in very worn condition (they were the ones I carried with me and used for all putting from 1999-2006 or so), the rest have their stamps clearly visible and about two of them are in fairly good shape.

What do these things go for nowadays?
