The Leopard has much much more fade than the Maul.

I'd agree with that for Champ or Star Leopards but I have a couple of Pro Leopards that barely fade at all.

On tight courses I'm throwing the Opto Maul on 90% of drives. Best combo of distance & control I've found yet. On a hyzer flip around 80% power it's laser straight and glides for days. Give it a little more power and it will turn easily, but never turns & burns which is an issue I've had with a lot of understable discs. It just wants to fly straight. And on a long downhill I can even get a little fade out of it. Easily my favorite disc right now.

+1 to all of that . Excellent review that eerily resembles my own experience. The Maul is a special disc, imo. But, you said it all better than I could!

one of the most workable disc I have ever thrown. A must on a wooded co course.

Correction, it will turn & burn on a hard flat release downhill into a right crosswind. :lol:

That thing is probably still sailing northeast toward Charlotte. I hope my backup gold line flies like the Opto (but just ordered two new Opto backups because that thing was special).

When you need to cover a lot of ground and absolutely positively can't afford to fade left... accept no substitue... you need the Maul!

Gold line Maul is maybe a tick less stable but glidier than the Opto. Great disc.

This describes me exactly!

I'm looking to move from a DX Leo3 (167g flies perfectly straight for me when brand new) to a similar disc in the Trilogy Line. I was set on the River in Gold Line (around 168g) but for some reason the Maul (around 168g) keeps entering my mind...I guess because it and the Leo3 are both -2/1 and I figured the Gold Line would start out a little more stable than a DX Leo3, break in a little bit, and then hold a flight like a new DX Leo3 for a long time.

Just a quick question: neither the Maul nor the River are going out of production any time soon are they?

Thanks!!!

Dude, just get one (maul). Glides for days without fading without being overly flippy. Sometimes they feel like cheating. So money.

I love both Rivers and Mauls and both are production discs. Older rivers are close close to current mauls. Newer opto Rivers (fisherman stamp) have a touch more fade but are still good discs.
