The Trak is not a leopard. It's a different beast. If you're looking for a Leopard replacement, I'd anticipate being disappointed, because it's a different disc.

Firms will beat-in more similar to plastic, because they have more plastic in them. Mediums beat-in more slowly over time. Haven't beaten in a soft yet, though I own 4-5 molds. I don't throw them enough to beat them in.
I am in the 375-400' wheelhouse, and I have a Firm Trak that is also beefier than advertised. By a large margin. I get more turn out of a fresh Eagle X than this Trak.

This Trak is very straight, with a manageable fade, but I'll be damned if it has any HST once so ever.

Don't quote me on this, but I've heard rumors of very beefy, overstable Traks that are out there. They tend to be dome-ier than another Trak. The original bumbleboot Trak (black and yellow) were very, very overstable, but they are no longer available, except by out-bidding someone else.

I don't believe you have a beefy Trak, however. It's my guess that yours isn't beat-in quite yet. Give it some time. It's my opinion that you'll see more turn from your Trak if you throw it into a headwind. I've thrown a flat-top Traks into headwinds and watched them turn and burn.

Every Trak I have thrown, which is quite a few, has been a lot more like a TL (a tad less HSS though) than a Leopard.

Until recently, I've been throwing my Trak farther than my Lace. The distance on the Trak is incredible, given its speed. I've been getting more consistent with my Lace, and I have been honing my hyzer-throws with the Trak for accurate shots. My next goal should be anhyzer-throws. This disc does it all!
