Default Do these overlap?

What do you guys think? Is there room in one bag for all of these discs?

Stalker
Leo
River
Sidewinder

If yes, why?
If no, which ones would you use?

**Before anyone says it, I know it's a matter of preference...humor me.

They all have some overlap to me. Especially the Leo and River. The stalker, depending on your arm speed could do similar things. The sidewinder I think would be a little longer and a little flipper, so maybe you could have the sidewinder and one of the 3 "fairways" and it would make sense.

I pair a River with a RR for similar shots of different lengths

also the River can be straigher

but I personally wouldn't add a Leo to that mix

the Stalker is a bit more stable and could fit in between the River and RR/SW

I think that likely the primary overlap is between the River and Leo

My first question would be how far do you throw, as some of these discs will behave differently depending on your power level.

I am going to assume you are under 300 for this advice.

These three discs are very similar in slot and I would recommend that you may want to drop the stalker as it is kind of a tweener disc for your power level. You would get much better distance with either the Leo or the River.

So that leaves us with a choice between the leo and the river. At your power level the leopard will probably be more versatile as you will be able to use this for annies and other line shaping shots. The river can be much more overstable then the leo and would not be as versatile for you.

Stalker
Leo
River

RR - It has been years since I threw one and then just for a bit. The only thing I can comment on is it is in a different class then the other three.

Also if the power level estimate was off and you throw much farther then my advice would be different.

Cheers - Koffee

Stalker seems to be the "most" stable of those, I'd get rid of one of the others.
Also depends on plastic types, DX Sidewinders and Leos are significantly flippier than Champ.

From the few I've thrown Rivers aren't quite as flippy as leos, and go farther, maybe more equivalent to Sidewinder like 'D'

I use these as fairway drivers (least to most stable):
DX Leo- beat
JLS - Semi Beat
Champ Tee Bird
ESP XL
Champ Eagle
Z Pred (I know it's fast for a fairway, by that's how I I use it).

I could prolly get rid of the tee bird, but I likes it.

For me, I find that the Stalker and River overlap. The Leo is a little more understable and a good pairing with either of the other 2. The Sidewinder is the odd one out in that it is faster and longer than the other 3. So, for my bag I'd choose the SW, Leo, and Stalker.

yeah i think if you like the stalker keep it and use a leopard...best disc that innova makes.

but it really is what you can pick two of those four u can add another if one is missed after a few rounds

Some good advice so far. I can't say much else except express my personal preference. I think the Leo and Stalker are the closest matched of the bunch with the Stalker being more stable. The River depends on weight and your power. I use Stalkers and always carry one River for standstill throws or huge anny bombs. I used Sidewinders for that slot but found the River a little more versatile and I didn't need the distance of the Sidewinder for that specific shot. If you pick the Stalker you could pair it with the River or Sidewinder. If you go with the Leopard I think the Sidewinder is the best option to go with it. They all definitly overlap a bit without being exactly alike.
