Why the interest in DD?
I mean if you already like the Teebird Leo combo, why not just continue with it?

Explorer for the Teebird. My other pick is a Longbowman, I've gotten used ones that are very straight to fade with close to zero HSS, which is what personifies a stable TB to me.

For the Leo, I suggest a Seer if you want a flippy Leo right away. Start neutral, beat in flippy quickly but a similarly slow rim.

My interest in DD was sparked initially because (after a few months of extensive putting training while recovering from a knee injury) i now putt religiously with Marshals. I absolutely love my leo3/tbird setup and am fine not switching. At this point Im just willing to venture out and give their molds a chance. In addition, DD has recently opened thier 4th retail location worldwide just minutes from my favorite corses here in my own town...

Yeah, it's pretty much the same disc. The only difference is that you can get them in different plastics. A Champion or Star Teebird will stay a bit overstable for a long time, but an Opto Explorer will beat in and fly straighter after a month or two. I consider this a big advantage for the Explorer because you can get that perfectly beat in Teebird flight with a lot less work compared to a Champion or Star Teebird and a lot more durability than a DX Teebird.

I've been checking for those almost daily. I'm interested if they are like a beat in explorer or a maverick with more finish.

Gstar tb has a pretty similar flight to a gold line explorer ime. The gstar was slightly more stability out of the box, but beats pretty quickly to a great glidey 0ish turn flight... it stays there for a long time too. I don’t know how the gold line wears
