I wanted to believe that, but also didn't want to get my hopes up. I don't know a whole lot about rare/collectible discs so figured I would ask before I assumed.

Thanks for the info

How about another couple. I think they're Rhynos, but got rid of my only Rhyno I had so no thumbtrac discs to compare to.

Both from 1999 california tourney stamps, weight in the 120's. Plastic is odd, really slick and reminds me of the junky frisbees (think they call them fastback). The white is slightly gummy/flexible, red is pretty stiff. Both have Ontario, CA Innova tooling.

What's up with this 10x Banshee feeling way different than the 10x Cheetah and Teebird I have?

It's like slicker and I'm not really sure how else to describe it to be honest.

Those are not rhinos for sure. They are either birdies or piranhas depending on the diameter of the disc.

premie birdies used to be fairly common.

I checked the PLH versus my pre-thumb Birdies and they're way off. Are pre-thumb birdies and thumb birdies way different?

Rim depth is 2cm less than pre-thumb Birdie and inside diameter is 2-3 cm less than pre-thumb Birdie.

For reference the PLH and rim depth match my circle stamp Polecat (I know it's not a Polecat).

Those are either last generation Piranhas or thumbtrac Birdies. Actually you could call them either one since they are the same disc. I can't remember when the last run of Piranhas were, but '99 was right about the time that they could be either.
