Why is a zone classified as a putter, it's a midrange in speed without a doubt and does not have a putter profile.

Zone is definitely more OS than a Rhyno. Breaker or Suspect are a good call. Breaker will be a little shorter while the Suspect is borderline short mid range-ish.

Never thrown or held a rhino. Is it the inside rim that's hurting your finger? Could you sand/ bevel the inside rime to make it more comfortable? Just thinking out loud..........

A BT Soft Harp is a slightly shorter, less glidey and skippy zone. It kicked the Zone out of my bag and my upshots haven't been better in a while.

Good to hear. I ordered one yesterday hoping it would be exactly that.

I would counter that while the Zone is much more focused on driving and stability than say a Rattler, it's still a stumpy, slow, short range disc. By comparison, the Suspect is only slightly slimmer in profile than the Zone, is called a mid, but is comparable to a fast putter speed wise in the 3-4 speed range. I do concede that while the Zone is able to take a rip, it's still putter slow with discs like the Suspect on the slow side of mid defining the border from the other side.

For the OP - try both. Fun discs.

I agree that a Zone should feel better to you. You might want to have someone check out your grip or your Rhyno because a Rhyno shouldn't be hurting your fingers. What kind of grip do you use? Is your finger getting caught up on the release? I have a Wasp that did that to me. I put it away for a year and now it doesn't happen anymore. I must have changed my grip or release.
