Well a stingray is a midrange and an FD is well a fairway driver

and as i hold both a fd and leopard, it officially is not the wing.
yet innovas site, and close up of the stingray wing looks convincing
stingray -3, 1 FD -1,1 supports thugs findings, minus the speed

Definitely not stingray, if it's not a complete new design I'd say modified/tooled leopard wing. FD is more convex or bulgy than the leopard but both have a similar bead/lip near the rim.

Its like a leopard, but not the leopard wing

And 1000% sure its not a stingray bottom and could never be a stingray bottom. Its a midrange, the FD is faster and could never share the same bottom piece.

its definitely not the stingray bottom. the wing is a modified wing that resembles a leopard wing or archangel wing.

The FD does not have the Anhyzer top, it has the new AA top which is fairly blunt.
The Anhyzer top has the beak-like edge you see on previous Discmania discs.
The bottom most closely resembling the FD that I've seen has been the Leopard, but the Leo's rim is one fifth of a millimeter smaller, and has a deeper notch (it's called a notch, right?). The FD bottom is also brand new and has a diameter of 21.2 mm, whereas the Stingray is a midrange and has a diameter of 21.7, so definitely not a Stingray on all accounts.

all i can say for absolute certainty is it feels great in my hand, produces incredible flight and i would like a more stable compliment to it.

I always thought the wing on the FD looked a lot like a TL wing.

Have you tried the new c lines? They are more stable than the s lines and a good compliment
