The best part is that it powers down better for me. A 50% throw with my roadrunner yields too similar a flight to a leopard, and sometimes has too much fade left at the end. A 50% throw with a mamba is more likely to stay straight or right for the whole flight, like a shorter version of its max power flight.
Big difference I've found on these two discs -- on a big sky anhyzer the RR will turn over, reach maximum height and then glide long and straight to the ground. Whereas my Mamba will flex out and take a hard fade. I bag both discs and enjoy them for different purposes but for that shot they're very different.
