I'd say that the soft magnet and probably banger GT would be similar, but certainly not from a feel perspective.

Neither of those are as stable as a Rhyno. I like me some stable putters, so I putt with Rhynos. I don't know of anything else that will fly the same. I've been trying a Wizard (cause they're the best putter ever, haven't you heard? :roll: ), and it feels really understable compared to a Rhyno. I can't do it.

I have to ask though, why are you looking for something that will fly the same as a Rhyno? How about a Rhyno? They do feel different in different plastics. I mainly use Pro (the stiffer ones, not floppy), but also occasionally use a Dx or a Champ.

Looking for a different feel with same flight.. I have a Star Rhyno, softer.. all my misses go to the right of the basket.. as if im releasing late..or maybe just turning my wrist over.. I use a wizard withing 30..unless windy. Rhyno for approaches

The rhyno is stability 0, so is the soft magnet. The banger GT is 1.0. The rhyno has a 3 fade, the aviar has a 0 stability with a 1 fade.

It's a shame that the manufacturers can't all agree on the same stability scale. If you're going right with the Rhyno on approaches, I'd guess that you're just getting a late release or turning the wrist a little.

I like the magic for a straight approach or a warlock (more overstable). It's under the wizard though. You could also just buy a batch of 5 wizards and beat the hell out of them until they fly straight and then use them :) I'd recommend the glow wizards as they have a great feel to them.

The soft magnet has a great straight flat flight. It'll hold what you put on it though, so if you roll the wrist at all, it'll show you.

If you like the rhyno, I'd say see if it's a form issue first. Then proceed from there.

Which Rhynos are you asking about? The DX, Star, and Champ ones are overstable pigs. However the soft/proline ones are quite different, and in my opinion are much more useful as putters. Not nearly as overstable. More along the lines of a Challenger, although not quite the same flight path.

Lat64 Sinus APs are nice and overstable. You can drive them a long way, too. They are about the depth of an XD or Classic Roc, if that sort of feel floats your boat.

possibly a classic roc? I always considered these mids (probably due to the "roc" name) but they are technically a putt & approach. I've been practicing my putting with them and they're not bad... a little overstable and actually really comfy to hold because they aren't very deep.

yeah I am going to disagree with this. Classic rocs are straight out of the bag. There is really no putter like the Rhyno on the market. The closest I would say is the Bulldog but that is OOP

Which is probably what makes them so predictable. You don't get those unexpected flips or unnecessary float out of your putter. I've yet to find a better putter. The champion rhyno is every bit as good as the pro.

Yes they are very predictable, my first discs I started throwing with was a beat up 167g white DX Rhyno.

the thing you I would have to do is give them much more height so I can play the drop they have. I know of a lot of players that love them to death and use them and they are very good player none the less. I was not dissing your taste in putters at all.
