FD's are great. I can sometimes get a little bit more distance out of them. But in my experience, they need a little more room to work. Compared to an icon Patriot, sFD's turn more, and fade more.

I've stuck with Patriots since they seem to be a bit more predictable in flight, and they're more comfortable to grip.

1st run patriots varied. First run rivals were pretty flat from what I saw. You can still find flatter ones and high shoulder/domey ones for both molds, there's a lot of variance.

I've got an oddball milky white flat gummy stock stamped patriot that has a higher plh than any other patriots I've got at the moment. I don't have any of the flat ivory first runs any longer, but I'd imagine it's comparable in plh. Weight is 166 on it I wanna believe.

The gummy Patriots were much more overstable than any of the other 1st runs. they range in weight from 166g to 169g.

This for sure. For me they might as well have been TeeBirds. They were what I was expecting the Rival to be with room to grow on the overstable spectrum.

I wish I'd bought more because I absolutely love them, and I don't want to hunt down more for what they cost now. The one in my bag didn't make it a full season before seasoning into what the rest are like when new.

I've been trying to "use" up my stock of Leopards before switching over to Patriots but I give up, I'm switching now.

My true love, first Leopard (star, max weight) was flat and lost LSS first, then HSS. It's taken 2 years of abuse and is now mega flippy/rollerish, which fits a need in my bag. Every other subsequent Leopard has been more domey and lost HSS first but held it's LSS (making flex lines when thrown flat instead of the hyzerflip straight or subtle turnover I want) thereby sucking for tunnel shots because even if I hyzerflip it just right, it still has a little bit of fade finish.

The Icon Patriot just clicks for me. Very slow leak of turn that never really fades. Absolutely beautiful. How long will it take my Icon Patriot to get really flippy? My Leopards normally take 6 months to beat fade out and another 6 months to get fliptastic. I'd like to push my other Leopard (really flippy) out of the bag ASAP so I'm wondering how long it will take. Any plastic for Patriots that make them more understable than Icon?

snagged an icon patriot with some sweet pearliness to it, like some pinnacle got mixed in. i really like the feel of it.

it's "HOTTT" pink with a purple shatter stamp. sexy.



desaturated to show the pearl. my phone's camera captures amazing detail but it's too noisy and cannot capture vibrant colors for ****; it's really sad.
