I've thrown Star and Pro Leopards for years.

I didn't click with the Champ Leo3's as I felt they were a little too OS.

Only threw a Luster Leo3 a few times, but it seemed closer to an Eagle L than a Leopard.

The Star Leo3 is great though.

Hoping to eventually replace an old PFN Star with one.

I will be in the Innova East warehouse tomorrow... Leo3s are at the top of my shopping list. I love my Leo’s, I’m just wondering if the 3 will be fun to try out?

Anyone in here try the 3 and love it?
Leo3 isn't really much different, except it is flatter and is very touchy from what I've thrown. I came back to the Leo from the Leo3 and haven't looked back.

To answer the CD2 question, the Leo is gonna be more US and slower. An FD or Exodus would be more like a slower but just as stable CD2.

had a decent tailwind today, decided to throw a light Leo. It is an older disc that I bought back in 1999 or 2000 and is by far the gummiest Champ plastic I have ever had. It's pretty understable, but with the tailwind she sails just right! Man I love Leos. Have there been any other super gummy runs? I'd love to get more like this one... definitely one of my favorite discs of all time!

Try G* if yuh cant find a really gummy champ... I bag one at 165 that was pretty understable out of the box but it can go far in a tailwind. Works great! Yayo for leo

Whaaaat? I've been figuring out how to put mine in the 370+ range and feeling decent about that, then you go and add 100' on that.

The speed 6 just means they glide forever.

I have G* and the flight is close but the feel is wrong. My gummy champ is close to floppy R-Pro in stiffness. It is by far the gummiest I have!

370’ is awesome! That is some clean form and something to be proud of! Mine only went the extra distance because of the tailwind/light weight combo.

Watching it go 480 was a thing of beauty though... totally wish I had it on video. It’s frustrating that I didn’t get another 21’ out of it. I would love to see a 500+ with a Leo hahaha
