Also leopards and fd's do not share the same wing so it was a moot point to begin with.
My bad. I though the FD was the archangel top on a leo wing?

It definitely close to a Leo wing maybe a modified one? I'm not sure though.

Archangel top maybe, definitely not Leo wing, Leo is 1.6 cm and FD is 1.8 cm.

Really excited to see if these throw as advertised. Supposedly understable speed 7-8 discs have left a lot to be desired for me. They're either not understable or too unpredictable (I'm guessing form issues on my part). I'm referring to the River, Witness, JLS and FD, and the Diamond to a lesser extent. I've gotten some amazing long turnover shots out of the Diamond, but it's weird, I have trouble with my release with any lightweight disc. A 168g Diamond would be sweet.

I like the Leopard, so a slightly longer, more turn-y one is something I'd like to try. If it doesn't click, it may be time to accept that it's not a slot that works for me. I get a lot of great shots out of driving putters, mids and speed 9+ drivers.

I could see using a Leopard3 as your understable FD if you don't feel like beating one in or don't have a big arm.
Thanks for another good breakdown. Now I have no need to try and Leo3. My C-FD and S-FD combo is not in danger.

We are getting closer and closer until Leo3s are released!
