I don't remember theirs and I definitely didn't consciously use it as a guide for mine.
I'm very open about my design process; here is the sequential process video for that project. You can see my character design phase and the Google image photo I used to help get me there.

Any similarity to the Innova version is accidental.

I don't think either of you copied one another. Honestly, they are not that similar to me.

I do suspect that the idea of a KC Polecat might be better than the reality though.

Yes or at least stiff R-Pro, like the limited run stiff R-Pro Pig and even more limited Rhyno. A stiff plastic that is not a premium would be nice for those who want a stiff lid, lids work best when made in stiff plastics. Since current XT is like between stiff R-Pro used for Wahoo, and the discs above just not nearly as durable and regular R-Pro just a tad stiffer R-Pro, the plastic is not as stiff for the Polecat disc as it once was for limited runs.

I say we keep trying until we get the right blend.

If you want a stiff Polecat, buy a DX. They're amazing. Focus, man. Stiff R-Pro is about as durable as regular R-Pro. Great for Pigs and Rhynos that can stand to lose stability faster. Not good for Polecats.

But then why make a regular R-Pro Pole Cat in the first place? I mean the R-Pro plastic runs from very floppy Gumputt like plastic to being like the old flexible Pro plastic for the Rhyno in most runs after 2010.
