The only problem you will have is the big z roach going too far. I throw fewer mids because of that disc.

A ringer GT is your best bet in that department (or a zone??) But personally I never liked Rhyno shaped discs. I wouldn't call the banger GT overstable though, it's straighter than a Wizard

Ringer GT has a bead. That would be my issue.

Get a partner and play catch with it. Just make sure to play catch on concrete or pavement and practice low shots...

Your issue should be short lived.

it does? The breaker is the beaded version of the ringer gt...maybe it's small vs big bead, I haven't thrown a ringer in so long.

D and JB Zones. They don't stay ESP Zone overstable for long...lose HSS/LSS in a fairly uniform manner. I'm a woods player and never once suffered a, "well that shot made it flippy" with them or any other disc.

Something more recent players forget is tuning a base plastic disc - smack a tree and notice it lost a hair of stability? Bend the outside wing upwards. Need to make sure your base plastic disc has that extra turn or lack of fade? Bend it downward.

Incorrect my friend, Breaker is a Ringer with a spacer. Beads are the same size (see below).

I'm assuming the Ringer GT has a groove like the Banger does on top? My only experience is with the original Ringer but I'd assume the only change with the GT (like the Buzzz) would be the ring on the top of the disc for your thumb to fit into. Kinda of redundant if you ask me, Ringer/Breaker already have a thumbtack-like outer top edge lol...I digress.

The ringer gt has a similar thumb-track raised on the outside edge compared to a rhyno. Not a “groove” track like a banger gt has.

Difference is the ringer gt is a touch faster and a touch more stable than a rhyno (in Z-FLX from my experience)

Quick google search just clarified this for me. OG Ringer has a "lip" on the most outer edge like the Breaker. Not crazy big but they're there. Ringer GT is more, "I copied Innova's thumtrac" because the patent is finished to my knowledge.

Bottom half (bead) should be exactly the same.

Yep at about the same time Latitude 64 made the Caltrop with the same, "I copied Innova's Thumtrac" because the patent is finished to my knowledge. However the Latitude 64 disc is more a Pig flight then a Ryhno, both disc with the Thumbtrac tech.

I can't think of other discs with the Thumbtrack on them from ether brand.
