Star Viking?

Postby cubspunc » Wed Feb 21, 2007 4:22 pm

What are the odds that they come out with a Star Viking? The Viking flies so straight and is a very durable driver for me I was just curious what other star plastic they plan on coming out with.

Viking = faster and a little more stable Leopard.....

Which is close to an ESP Avenger SS, but a bit slower.

Go with the ESP Avenger SS

Leopard is still my favorite disc of all time! If anyone can get a chance to see Barry play in MN or maybe even River City, he throws his leopard a lot. I think that is why he likes the runs of Beasts he throws because they have a similar flight pattern but are obviously longer.

So comparing the Viking and the Leopard what do you see different? Personally my Viking is very straight and very predictable. They have also tended to last very long for me, but the downfall I do have is that it doesn't get as far as I'd like. I know a lot of people use the Leopard but what does it do and how far do they usually fly? Also do they last a long time before getting beat and becoming unstable on ya?

Leopards only go really far if Mike throws them. When I threw one it was a CE 2nd or 3rd run and I used it around 310-330 shots. The ussually hold up well unless you get a proline or DX. I have heard the Star and Champion Leopards hold up well and take awhile to beat in.

Odds are Innova won't release the Viking in the Star plastic, because it's not a popular disc. Also, don't replace it with a leopard. Two completley different discs. Josh I have a couple Avenger SS in the ESP plastic which is like the Star. You can try them and compare.

The Leopard is a decent fairway driver... I've been thinking of them in my bag - as I don't have anything shorter than an eagle... Then again, watching BUZZnation throw thoat 10x KC gazelle's, I wonder if i need one of those instead! ha!

Thanks Jason. Yes you need to get one of those instead. And if you really want to see one thrown watch DFee. He's the one that got me sold on the Gazelle.
NO!......Welp!?

Do you think that Star plastic resurrected the Leopard for serious golf, or has the Leopard been more popular than I thought?
