Rhino incorporate an adjustable polycarbonate rod and a traditional non retractable wire brush. The rod used in the Rhino is heavier and stiffer than that of the Cyclops and there is no bead. When rod is engaged in or impacted on rims or cymbals the sound it very distinct. The larger rod has incredible reflex and therefore its rebound is extremely fast. Many other esoteric effect sounds can be achieved by scratching the polycarbonate into the coated head.
