Opto Diamond, if you get a good one, is a Champ Leopard with a little more fade. I also found Rivers to have a decent fade, so the XL is a good suggestion. Between ESP XL and a seasoned X XL you should have an awful lot of fairway driver lines covered (never thrown a Z XL so no advice there).

A lightweight (<170) GL River should cover both those. Maybe you had a random stable River? Have you thrown other Rivers besides the one you had? If you wanted to reduce molds, I feel like a light GL river, and a heavier Opto River could replace your lost ones, and possibly even one of those Stalkers.
Also, the Fuse is a great neutral mid. If you're able, pick one up just to play around with. They follow the GL=more US guidelines.

Oh, and monocacy's suggestion is a good sub if you can't get a light river.

Answering the original question: A single mold that can replace both a River and Leopard.
Adding that the OP prefers lower cost stuff..

JLS -
A Quantum JLS will have the stabilty of heavy river, with slightly less glide. ($13)
A Millenium (pro) JLS will beat in to be understable like a seasoned leapard. ($10-$11)

Plenty of weights to choose from. Add a Sirius JLS if you don't like how fast the Millennium plastic beats in.

Somebody said it already I think, but my choice; lightweight DX Teebird. It'll be glide monster like your river, and in time, about as understable as either the river or leopard.

I saw someone say Roadrunner, I would second that 170ish probably, especially if you are using it for straighter to more understable flights. I think an XL would feel redundant beside a Stalker, especially with the differences in XL's between plastics. I like pairing my Stalker and Roadrunner together (bunch of overlap) I find they fly different but similar enough. I can't weigh in on JLS or Millenium.

My vote for utility fairway driver is my old friend, an X XL.

I used to throw an XL, but I liked the Stalker better...the XL just was too finicky for my sub-par form.

Woah man, I'm not that cheap, lol. (not that the JLS is a bad disc, I just am not opposed to buying pricier (<$20) stuff.

They are.


Aughhh...so many choices, I'm really interested in lighter rivers now, but I also wanna try an amp, underworld, patriot, and fury. I wish I had more money. LOL
