Anything at all close to a Rhyno -- thumb track, big bead -- is really missing the point of the Zone.

Innova already has plenty of slow and OS discs with clunky hand feel: Pig, Gator, Hawg, plus the Rhyno itself.

The Zone gets that overstablity but with super clean hand feel. Innova was on the right track with Aviar3 then AX3 then Rat...they just needed another few iterations in the more OS direction.

So what is the purpose of a more OS Rhyno?

hopefully it is a way to get an OS Rhyno without playing the Rhyno lottery. Seems like most of the new ones are domey and not so overstable.

No idea, honestly. Flat champ Rhyno is plenty OS for me! Maybe Heimburg wants a mold that he won't accidentally throw past the basket on a 450' hole?

Throw a freshie or a Pig. It's not rocket surgery...

I never had a flat champ Rhyno, but I never found my Rhynos to be that overstable. They were certainly very high speed stable, but they'd usually just run out of gas and fall out of the air instead of fading unless I threw them high.
