The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I order what I thought was an R-Pro Rhyno from an online store, but when I got it in the mail, all I got was a Pro Rhyno. I called the online store to confirm whether there was a mistake involved, and they ensured me there was no mistake. They explained to me that the R-Pro Rhyno and Pro Rhyno are the same thing. Whenever they order the R-Pro Rhyno, from Innova, they get Pro Rhynoes along with the clam of the two being one in the same.

Is this true or have I been tricked?

If R-Pro is now the new Pro plastic, what happened to the old Pro plastic? Or did they just change lables for the hell of it?

Can anybody shed some light on this?

What's the deal, Innova?

Well I was just on a few sites and they had pictures of the hot stamps that said "R-Pro" on them as well as "Pro". The one site I have used in the past and tend to trust them. Is Disc Golf Values. I don't want to say you've been ripped off, because Innova does tend to change things A LOT. However, I would still look into it if I were you.
I go here if I have any doubts.

That's what I thought. The place where I order from tells me that their order form says R-Pro and they receive Pro. Maybe Innova is playing 'favorites' when comes to the online stores.
I've searched a couple of online stores now, and non of them (including discgolfvalues) do not have this disc. The original order I placed was from MarshelStreet. But now I'm starting to think this fabled disc doesn't even exist.
I have some of each R and Pro at my store. Order from now says R-Pro but they still send some of each. Problem is the store you bought from should have said they were out of R-Pro and not sent you a Pro calling it an R-Pro. Buy Local Throw Global.
We just recently ordered some R-Pro Rhynos from Innova and get 2 white Pro Rhynos. So I would think that the dealer is telling you the truth as we got the same explanation from Innova. The plastic they are made from is not the same as the old pro Rhynos and seems to me anyway to be stiffer.
Hmmm. One of the sites I checked was Marshall St. and they had both the Pro and R-Pro on their site. When I did a search on discgolfvalues I just typed in R-Pro and it came up. As for Marshall St. I've bought quite a few discs from them. There were a few times they sold out of the disc prior to my online order, but thye always called me to see how I wanted to procede. Maybe it was just a SNAFU?
I have a champion Rhyno and I love it. It is super sticky. Problem solved, the champion Rhyno rocks!!!
I agree. I got two of them. But I did want to give the R-Pro a try
Ive heard that they were ditching pro plastic and this could be the first phase. Its just like the jk avairs the new ones are basicly R-pro big beads
