Default Replace my Champ Rhyno

There are times when the wind is kicking up or I really don't want to overshoot the basket -- both, usually -- when the champ Rhyno is the perfect disc. The deep rim and sharp edge are hurting my finger on release, though.

I prefer throwing a Neutron Envy for upshots -- that's the perfect feel for me with the lower profile. But it just wants to go and if I get under it on a windy day it can take off.

So is there anything short and overstable with a low profile. Most I've seen seem to be deeper, which makes sense, I guess.

Rhynos are shallow but not super shallow like Zone.

SP Breaker might work also. You probably need to feel them to see.

Maybe Suspect too.

This was my thought, but Proline.

I use to throw a champ Rhyno. Then my pro pig started to beat in. I love it for most drives under 250'.

I went from a Champ Rhyno to an R-Pro Rhyno since I stopped driving with it. I use it almost exclusively for putts on hills or in wind and like the feel of the material. In limited use I'm on my third season with one and its taking its licks nicely. As others have mentioned, Zone is a _really_ overstable putter (I have a Crystal FLX), which truely makes the Rhyno seem straight-stable by comparison. I too use a Suspect in my bag for long ups and field flicks which want predictability. It drives like a long Rhyno with better HSS for me, you might like it for that.

I agree with the Zone, one of my favorite discs and one of the few discraft discs I throw.

Not a lot of putters much more shallow than the rhyno - maybe the thumbtrak is throwing you?

The zone indeed is nice and shallow, with a high shoulder/PLH that just feels right in the hand.

The warden/judge are others that have caught my attention in searching for a stable, shallow putter to compete with my wizards.
