Default What single disc can replace a River and Leopard?

Hey all,

I just lost my 2 year old GL river a month after losing my 1 year old Leopard. So now, since I'm trying to cut down the number of molds I throw, I'm in the market for an understable fairway which can combine the insane glide I get from the river, with the smooth, consistent turn of a Leopard.

I've also been really interested in the Fuse... so what's a longer disc I could pair with that for the understable slot?

Get a lightweight GL river, throw a bunch of rollers with it.

Boom. Understable.

Pair it up with a heavy opto river.

Well the Underworld is glidey, and turns consistently. But it might turn more than a Leopard, depending on what flavor plastic you had.

Try out a pinnacle or icon patriot. The more you throw it, the better you'll like it.

S- Line FD Jackal. Not quite as glidey as the river but close. And has a decent enough turn. Lighter weight is what you probably want.

discmania fd. between the variations of c (champ) and s (star) line, you can cover everything from eagle/teebird to river/leopard.

Legacy Patriot in Icon and/or Pinnacle Plastic. Its literally a combo of both in terms of feel and flight.

Pinnacle is a bit more straight stable and the Icon is more of a left-to-right mover but still very straight at low power
