Looked closer at pic and its a Rancho. I'm new to Rhyno Nation, so it will still be fun to compare to the DX.

Stars don't seem to get much love, I'll have to check dome and plastic feel if I ever see one.

I just kind of fell into them. Found a Star Ontario in one of the first few rounds I played (called and was told to keep). I did not use it too much at first be over time I used it more and more for throwing approaches. Eventually I decided I needed backups. I love them now but it could be b/c they are the first version of the Rhyno I ever tried. Part of why I love them is even for being a premium plastic and overstable, they seem to have barely any skip, so the stick where they land (which is funny b/c the Gstar I have has significantly more skip).

Sometimes the ones you find are the best. Found a JLS and loved that thing.

Found out something today about Rhynos. When there is an inch or two of snow on the ground, Rhynos rarely dig in under the snow, making them much easier to spot.

Gummy champ came in and it has a dome. Didn't drive with it today, too many other new discs to throw.

I also have a Gstar that is a San Marino, only slightly more domey than my whites. I have noticed that that some non Ontario Stars are basically the same gummy feel and flatness as mine, but only certain colors (mostly white).
The two I have are those gummy whites with the funky nipple and boy are they OS. I can feel them pulling away just prior to the snap and have to grip them significantly tighter to keep them in hand as compared to the Ontarion champs to get the right "rip" point. I'll have to work with one for a while to throw it with confidence but despite the heavy fade, it's still a hit and stick Rhyno.

I recently ordered one online and it came with a big dome too. I flattened it and it's fine. If you don't like the dome, there's a fix for that, (in most plastics anyway).

Did you throw it before you flattened it? If so, do you notice any stability difference after flattening it? And how do these compare to other Rhynos?

What plastic was yours and what did you do?

Champion. Played a full single round with it before I flattened it, if anything it lost a little glide, other than that no change in flight but now feels like the other 5 Rhyno's I have and that's what I was looking for. The Champ is the most stable followed by the G*.

Boil some water, turn the disc upside down on a counter, fill it with boiling water and place something flat on top of it and let it cool. If it doesn't take the dome out, try again with some weight on it. Don't do this trick to any KC type plastics, it wrinkles the flight plate. Dx can wrinkle too. Works well with Champ and Star, never tried it on Pro, so I don't know.
