The reason I switched from leos was that everytime I got a new 170's star leopard, they flew like a teebird. Didn't turn and had "lots" of fade to it. Then I tried pro plastic. They were nicer but beat in a little too fast. I recently got a slightly worn in 169g champ leo and this thing flys nice. Slooooowww turn and a tiny come back at the end.

I have a love hate relationship with Leopards. My first was a DX and I loved it until it beat in to unusable, replaced it with a Pro. The pro sucked! It was slick as snot and I could never get a good releases with it. Kept it around for two years and finally traded it off. Just bought a pink Star, so I'll see how that one flies.

Handled a new Jolly Launcher Leopard last week that felt soooo sweet, but didn't buy it because it was a dark purple, would be too easy to lose in the woods. I might give the champ a try if I come across a bright colored one. I'll try the Star out first, in all honesty, at this point I don't know where a Leopard would fit in my bag anymore, but we'll see, maybe I can rekindle that old DX leopard love I once had.

I recently got a ~160gr G* Leopard hoping it beats in quickly like the pro does. Nice and gummy with a mild dome.

I popped my third Pro Leonard in the bag for my annual tradition of getting a perfectly seasoned Pro Leonard and then losing it in the fall. Right away, it has more turn than any of the FDs I have AND I love having a disc where I'm happy when it hits a tree.

I have a 165 G* Leopard that's fairly flat. New it had hardly any turn but flew really straight until the end of the flight where it had a pretty pronounced fade. It broke in rather quickly however and now I can get it to turn and hold if I torque it or I can get it to fly dead straight depending on my release angle, fantastic disc. Pretty much my main thrower on anything 150-275' that I do not need any fade at the end. I use a G* Thunderbird or Disccraft Heat for that shot

Most definitely a required purchase.

Speaking of which, I have a Japan Open E* Leo (blowfish two tone stamp), inked, one good cut in rim so I'll call it a 6/10 if anyone needs one (I think 157g), shoot me a PM.
I use old pro and proline exclusively now in Leos.

Sweet Leopard score. Pre Barry. Dye is decent. Has random dark spots on the disc but doesn't stink or anything. Around a 7/10 too. 173g.

Found a 148 DX Lep on a course I traveled to a few weeks ago, that thing is a hyzer flip turnover machine! It's a very fun disc to throw, makes me what to throw an arrangement of leps back in the bag. With all the short dogleg right courses I've been playing lately I just might
