Default Innova Leopard v Legacy Bandit

has anyone put these two up against each other?
I find them very similar and would like opinions. The Leopard may lose out and it's been in my bag for four years

I have an Icon Bandit and my first thought was holy crap, a longer Leopard. At first I was a bit disappointed because I had heard the Bandit compared to a Valkyrie most often, but then I got to thinking of the spots where my leopards are not quite long enough and was very happy. The Bandit is a very useful disc for me.

Isn't the Bandit a good deal longer?

Well, the Bandit is speed 9 as compared to the Leopards speed 6. I have not thrown them side by side, but from my throws with a Bandit, I would venture to guess for me the bandit gets me an extra 20-30 feet, maybe more with the same power and form.

Isn't the Patriot a Leopard clone?

Not at all calling the Bandit a Leopard clone. It is a longer leopard. Yes, I have heard the patriot called a leopard clone.

The Patriot is the Leopard that the Leopard wanted to be.
I haven't thrown the Bandit but I can't immagine it being as similar to a Leopard as the Patriot is.

I have not thrown a Patriot yet, so I can not confirm or deny this. The Icon Bandit I have is definitely a long Leopard. Thrown flat it slowly pans right and stays that way. Hyzer flipped it goes straight and stays that way. Little steeper hyzer angle it goes straight and finishes with a slight fade. Exactly the same as my three different leopards only longer.

Not one bit buddy. The Bandit I have is considerably more US than any of the multitude of Valkyries I throw. And that's brand new. If anything Bandit= beat up star Valkyrie, but a new Bandit is waaaaaay more US than a new Valkyrie.
