Hmmm, you might be surprised. Run to run, the Pro plastic used in the stiff Pro Pigs from the factory store has varied too. I've had a couple that were positively as floppy as RPro and some that were very stiff and a lot in between. I've never had an actual domey one, but they vary from pretty flat to a little concave. From the reviews, it looks like the stiff Pro Rhynos have been around since 2013. It looks like there might have been a domey run in 2017, but most of the reviews say they are flat and great. Given that Rhynos are generally more popular than Pigs, I imagine they've done quite a few runs of these by now. You could call and request flat ones in your order. I've had pretty good luck that way in the past with the factory store.

If you don't like 'em, I'll take 'em. That's how I like my Rhynos (I putt with them, and warped Rhynos are amazing approach discs). I used to use a GStar and R-Pro, but now I've got a wavy topped Pro and it's money, along with my R-Pro. I'm all for a production run of GB Pro Rhynos!

I think calling would be the only way to go. I'm not about to waste another 50-60 bucks on a stack of them. I just remember being so disappointed in them that it's hard for me to try again.

If you like the stiff, tacky pro plastic they run Pigs in and you like Rhynos, these are probably for you (and even with factory store shipping, cost way less than 40-50 bucks).

They're not the same as the old versions.

We have a big Rhyno following in my area and I always bag one.

I've tried to get into these but just end up switching out the Flat Top DX ones.

There are also Barsby Aviars (same stamp as his Roadrunner) out now in shops in my area.

I'm surprised Barsby doesn't throw some Star Eagles...I got one recently and the plastic feels nice, no weird dome...looks like an EX should.

Star Eagle. Molded so that it flies like one of his beat in ones.
