Default How is GStar Rhyno

Anyone try out the new GStar rhyno? Is it similar to xg champions? Impressions on it?

I've not thrown the Rhino, but I've thrown a handful of other GStar discs. Each of those were less stable than their Star counterparts. I'd assume Rhynos continue that trend. Also probably pretty soft.

I am absolutely loving it. It is great for pinpoint control when driving and it sticks to the chains incredibly well. I cannot compare it to other Rhynos because my experience is limited, but of the Rhynos I do remember throwing, I am enjoying the GStar far more.

Not completely true. GStar Leopards and Roadrunners have a touch more stability than their Star counterparts. If anything, it seems the more stable the Star inherently is, the less stable GStar is (while still being stable to overstable). Conversely, it seems that the less stable a Star disc inherently is, such as Leopards and Roadrunners, the more stable it will be in GStar. For every mold of GStar I have thrown, the general rule of thumb seems to be that GStar has moved the mold closer to true stability.

I have not thrown the Sidewinder, Tern, or Daedalus, so I am not going to go as far as saying all molds hold to my observation.

Even the Roc3 which initially seemed more stable than a normal Star Roc3 did not hold that extra stability long and I find that it is now, after two weeks, on par with my Champion Roc3s.

Mine is new but it's flying like a slightly more stable R-Pro, probably closer to the Pros they have in the pro shop.

It doesn't flop on the ground quite like the R-Pros but it's definitely less stable and skips less than any champ I've thrown.

As far as I'm concerned it's perfect and expect it to beat in to a nice sweet spot. If you like Rhynos I have a feeling you will like this disc.

Nope. They're stable. And they have decent glide, and grip. The only downside I see to them is the sharp flashing on the bottom. But definitely a great addition to my bag

Hmm now i have to try one. I was concerned with them being domey and not being os. I never liked star rhynos so i was already hesitant about gstar.

It would not be the first time I've had to sand down flashing... I don't see that as a downside unless I can't find sandpaper, or a file, maybe a kitchen knife.. or a sharp rock. Man I didn't want to hear about this but morbid curiousity got the better of me. I'm gonna forget I read this and keep playing with that Envy, that showed up, last week, with some other discs.

G-star Leopards are more uinderstable than star leopards.
