My experience is that they will probably beat into Leopard like flight and don't start out that way (unless it is the first run), thus they aren't necessarily a Leopard clone out of the box.
i think it's more a matter of time and wear than weight. i have 2 icon patriots and 1 pinnacle and it's only after some beating did the icons turn into sweet turnover discs. my pinnacle is still pretty new so i use it for those eagle-L lines.
