Agreed; however, some Tanks are nearly as overstable as Rhynos. These don’t fill the same slot as the Bullfrog, Invader, Animal (based solely on the description of their flight, no first hand experience)

Tanks aren’t very OS in practice. Maybe some of the older runs but certainly not the new ones. I highly recommend.

That was the Zepplin... Not a close disc at all and a lager 180 gram max diameter disc to the PDGA rules.

That or the Aviar3X, ROCX3 or RyhnoX, all 3 are different molds from the original not close to the flat top models so adding the 3 to the name of disc is not going to work. Those are probably worse.

I do think the Name Animal, is as if at this point the Innova naming side or Dave himself ran out of animal names to make a new disc for, there are hundreds if not thousands not used yet.

I grabbed one when they restocked because I really like the Nexus plastic. Total guess, but it feels like a Rhyno top with an Invader bottom (which is likely the bottom from another disc). Haven't thrown it yet, but it feels nice.

Do you have a few pics you could share? Maybe comparing it with a Rhyno or Invader? I haven't seen any of this disc yet, and I'm really curious.

I don't have any Rhynos at the moment

This has become my go-to backhand approach disc. The nexus plastic is incredible and the low glide and minimal fade allow you to trust a straight flight without fear of flipping. Highly recommended.
