I remember my Brinster sentinel being pretty blunt nosed, like the Taurus.

I just got one in the mail today. Mine is identical look and feel to the plastic of my C-md4(both run very recently I would assume). Very clear, no pearliness. Very very grippy.

My Taurus and MD4 are both neon pink. Jolly launcher-ish. No streaks. But they both feel great. Taurus seems to have closer to a true 0 hss. They fly pretty similarly though. I have only thrown the Taurus ~10 times though. Hoping it beats in to fly like a new md3, and my md3 beats in to fly like a neutral buzzz. Time will tell I guess.

The Taurus definitely has a true HSS of 0. All of mine are marked Rx on the bottom. When compared to the RocX3, the nose looks very similar. It almost looks like a RocX...given the shape of the dome, the nose, the wing and the bead. I think a lot of people were hoping the RocX3 would fly like this thing. Regardless...it's nice to have something that fits between a Gator and a QMS for my setup.

In terms of stability, this is how I'd rate them(Most to least). Taurus > RocX3 > MD4

How does a Taurus compare to a Star Rancho Roc?

From my very limited exp with the star rancho I’d say the Taurus is more overstable, less chunky in the hand and a better wind fighter. I have to put a bit of anny on it if I don’t want it to dive to the ground. Looking forward to see if the Taurus can bear in a bit, flight wise.

The Taurus is a fair bit beefier than a Star Rancho. My Taurus has been able to hold the flat hyzer into some pretty severe headwinds as of late. I've stopped carrying my Gator because I found myself grabbing the Taurus instead. While the Taurus isn't as piggishly overstable as a Flat top Champ Gator, it is still plenty overstable to fill that type of shot. The only thing I haven't been able to do yet is get a consistent short range flick the Taurus when compared to the Gator(Flat vs. some dome), but I rarely throw this shot so I'm not too worried.

I am 99% sure that the Taurus is just the Roc mold but molded in the same fashion as the Roc3/Rocx3. All of my Tauruses I have are marked Rx on the bottom and does feel pretty roc'ish in the hand.
