Lost my 2 year old beat up teebird the other day. Would pretty much flip up and turn even from a hyzer. Was less stable and longer than my leos. Will an icon patriot be a decent replacement until I can beat in another tb, or is it not that flippy.

Yeah an icon patriot will be what youre looking for, it even feels a bit similar in the hand.

Relative to the icon patriots, the flat, gummy, 168g pale yellow pinnacles are more overstable.

I got a Legend line Patriot from Lion over the weekend and had a chance to throw it the last few days. For some odd reason I think I got a fluke Patriot. This this is more stable then the Legend Rival I have. No idea whats up with that. It is 173g.

They both go about the same distance but the Patriot was not turning right even if I ripped hard on it. Funny enough, that was what I thought the Rival was going to be. But, the Rival just goes straight. Maybe they got mixed up at the factory?

On the other hand the Legend Rival is the most amazing disc I have thrown in a while. This disc is pure money. Hopefully I can get another Patriot and maybe it will be more like a Leopard.

That was my thoughts. Should I get heavy or light weight Icon?

Mine's a 172, and I have no problem getting it to turn. I also have a domey white 172 Pinnacle that's similar as well. Just avoid the flat yellow 168 Pinnacles if you want some easy turn.

I was just shocked that the Legend Patriot 173g was so stable. I mean it didn't turn at all. It was crazy. I am really just thinking that I got two Rivals instead of a Patriot.

Sounds like the 168 Pinnacles I mentioned. Unfortunately those are the gummiest ones.

That's not to say that I don't love the feel of my 172. It was amazing in the heat this summer. Closest plastic I've felt to pearly 11X KC Pro.
