Patriot is defintely the love child of the TL and Leopard.

i haven't thrown the bandit, but the river is like a glidier leopard; pretty much interchangable.

I never thought about putting a Leopard up against a Bandit, but I see some similarities. However, the Bandit is faster, has a noticeably wider rim, and is quite a bit longer. I can see some of the same lines from a beat in Leopard, though. The Bandit and Valk is a good comparison when the Bandit is fresh, but it doesn't take long to beat a lot of HSS out of them. If I want to throw a rhbh fade to the right, throwing a Bandit flat or slightly on a hyzer will do this every time with very little fad back to center at the end. Keep in mind that this is with one that I've used all year. This past fall, I finally broke 400' with a Bandit on a flex shot. In the interest of research, I am going to take a Leopard out on the same hole and see if I can hit that line. It's a straigh 440' hole, but there are trees in the middle about 200' out. You can play to the right or left of them. With the Bandit, I play to the left and let it drift back to the right and then settle into the middle of the fairway.
