They're awesome. Really nice consistent fade, grippy and durable. I bought a stack of them.

The r-pro rhynos are very run specific. Most are crap but the good blends rival the old pro-line.

I really feel like reliable describes the rhyno in general. For whatever reason it gets overlooked, but it makes my approach game the bread and butter of most of my rounds.

Yep. XG champs and champs seemed pretty close stability wise to me.

And I like the reliable descriptor.

Does anyone else think XT Pro would be a natural fit for the Rhyno? If they became RPO (not a limited release) then I would buy a stack of 10 in a heartbeat.

I googled and found this link. Apparently they have already tried making XTs. The URL says XT and the review says they were marked XT on the bottom. Anyone know why these didn't stick? I'm assuming there were molding issues...

I have 5 Color Glow Champion (San Marino) Rhynos. They feel great in the hand, they're gummy. Three of them are flat top & two have a slight dome. They fly great but beat in WAY quicker than I hoped. The one that's been in my bag since the end of January has lost quite a bit of fade. It fades about as much as my new S-Line P2, will less glide obvious. I have a regular production (Rancho) Champion Rhyno that still has its fade after over a years worth of abuse. I wish regular production Champion Rhynos were consistently flat. I have trouble gripping regular Champion Rhynos when it's wet outside. Should I try out a Star Rhyno? They don't seem as popular as Champion/DX/Pro Rhynos.

I have a couple of Champion Rancho Rhynos, and they're slightly domey, and have lots of (unexpected) glide. As to Star Rhynos, all of the ones I've seen and held in my paws at the stores have been very flat, so they might be what you're looking for.

If Innova only made the Rhyno in Star plastic it would be a great disc. I would make it work and use it all the time but it just isn't as good as the other plastics. It gets overshadowed by all the great runs of Pro and Champ. I don't think Star has much more grip than Champ. I personally prefer Pro and R-pro the best. Pro does beat in somewhat fast but you get months of a great Rhyno before it starts to straighten out. For me the grip is perfect and I get on target releases very consistently. Not sure if they still have the same run but DGU had some double stamped factory second R-pros that are an awesome blend of R-pro. Good ones are out there.

I have regular production runs in each plastic, and from my experience I can say the star is less domey than champ, but equally as slick. I agree with r-pro and pro being solid choices, and would include g-star. If you're looking for flat and grippy in wet conditions, r-pro is your best bet, followed by g-star

I'm between zones, pigs, and gator for OS flicks and approaches.

Is it worth adding a champ rhyno to the mix?

The Rhyno isn't as over stable.

I tried them all and I only carry two Rhynos, for my game I just never found a need for a meathook putter. Never cared for the Zone and the Gator and Pig feel really odd in my hand.
