Star Leopard

Postby Chase20460 » Sat Aug 19, 2006 11:08 pm

Lets start this forum out right.

Star Leopard: Red plastic, 174g. ( 175g. digital. )

The Leopard is one of my favorite discs ever. Im a fan of the CE Leopards more than the modern Champion. There are two types of CE Leopards, stable and slightly understable. A real overstable Leopard is hard to come by, so I dont really count on those.

The new Star Leopards most resemble the early and late run Leopards more than the 2nd and 3rd runs, which were more straight to slightly understable. In other words, when new, these are great for slight flip hysers and fairway drives. They are domier than the older CEs, which can produce a weird updraft / air bounce , but also can reach decent distance. They are great for less powerful throwers looking for a solid long approach disc, and also performed decent in headwinds.

I think as it beats up some, it will get alot better. I dont know if the control will be as good as some of the flatter topped versions, but it should make a good replacement for the fans of the Champion. Ill add more as I get more accustomed to it, but it will remain in the bag, replacing a QJLS and a beefier CE I carry.

Ok, been throwing this for a few weeks now. Its great. Ive finally got used to throwing it dead straight, and it performs. I still equal it to the CE first runs and Champion in the sense of stability, not as good for what I usaully use a Leopard for, but better than a QJLS or TL. The Star TLs seem to be alot more distance orientated than I remember.

The Star Leopard has pushed the QJLS out. They are about the same, QJ maybe a bit longer, but the Leopard has more control, and is aging better than the QJs. I think as it gets real used it will be a perfect slightly stable driver, ending up similar to the Pro Leopard.

Thumbs up here.

I've had to beat the hell out of mine on purpose to get it to fly some what like a leopard. So far I'm not the biggest fan.

I picked one up very late this year and after playing with it for one day I will need to keep my eye out for the next one. Mine is also red and red in the leaves in the fall can be big problems.

I have a red one too, and I really like it. It hasn't made a permanent spot in the bag yet, but I'm thinking that it will. I am also looking for current discs to replace high dollar discs in my bag that get pricier to replace every year.
