Leopards make less sense to me than Comets. If you are a new player using a beadless low-profile putter, I can see where the Comet design might seem weird and you have so many other options that you just wouldn't take the time to make the adjustment. Leopards, though...I mean what the Hell, folks! It's a regular 'ol fairway driver. If I close my eyes and you hand me an Eagle, a TeeBird, a JLS, an XL and a Leopard one by one they will all feel the same to me with a power grip. They are al just fairway drivers.

There was one disc in the last few years that I had a grip issue with. I had hurt my arm and I was putting with APX, and one day I suddenly couldn't hold the thing. It wasn't a "didn't like it right away" thing; I had been throwing it for a couple of months with no issue. I just suddenly couldn't hold the disc comfortably to throw. Putting was fine, but approaches were wack. I had to switch to a fan grip, which was better. After a few weeks of using the fan grip I went back to the power grip and it was fine. It was just weird.

Must be something with rim size for me. I could never get comfortable with Leopards or FDs.
Teebird, TL, Eagle, Gazelle, Cyclone, Leopard3, etc. No problem at all.

They all have essentially the same rim size, dude. You are just a whack job.

I am Meh on the Comet not feelings either way but I can use them if I had to. The Comet discs are the good version of a Cobra or Stingray that does not get turned by winds past 10 mph. So if I needed that slot in my bag the Comet is what I would use, curently have a Z Archer at 170-172 grams and a 166 gram #2 Upshot in Prostyle for this shot So I do not need a US midrange seeing how fast the #2 Upshot is for putter and how Slow for Fairway disc the Archer is. Also have an Impact for the neutral/tight long beyond midrange gap shot as well as for not quite fairway but too far for true fairway disc shot as long as I am not needing my Archer for the true US shot in same spot as Impact for between midrange and fairway distance.

Speaking of lots of players hated the Impact as I said before due to rim, the Glide was the better of the neutral midrange like fairway discs.

The Leopard he should be able to use due to the Leopard 3 but maybe it is the dome with the Leopard over the Leopard 3 as to why the mold fits odd in hand for the guy?

I used a Leopard in DX but switched once the mold got unpredictable in 2007 and by then the mold changed a tad to something else thanks to Berry Shultz to a mold I could not use due to now from get go having the S flight though not as pronounced as a worn in older Leopard mold. I was lucky I found the Impact for that tunnel shot at 2007 ace race. I do have a bunch of backup Impact at 170-172 grams and 172-173 grams sets as 169-174 is where the Impact works in only that weight range for the mold.

You're not telling me anything I didn't know.
But you started a thread about hand feel, so this is all your fault.

You know what’s weird? That ridge on the rim of a Shark. I know almost no one(starter pack newbs and Casey aside) throw them.

But that little ridge weirds me out.

I've been throwing a Daredevil Pteranodon this summer; it has the Shark ridge. I honestly never notice it.
