I always felt that Patriots flew closer to a seasoned Eagle L.

i have thrown leopards for years and can turn them over or straight line them fairly easy over 300' but I can't do s#it with a patriot for some reason. never got the hang of them for some reason. While I agree that the bandit is certainly longer than a leopard, it hold the same flight pattern and is far more forgiving.

Maybe mongoose is what I was thinking of...? I was trying to put someone onto an inertia who throws a lot of legacy and i know we talked about a valk like disc which he had that spot on lock down.

The Mongoose is more US than the Bandit. Now, to be fair, the Bandit I have is in Icon plastic. I have been told by a Legacy team member that if I want a Bandit that flies like a Valkyrie, I need to get a dark blue Legend at 168. This has kinda put me off of Legacy. I want consistency. Which is why I went back to the Inertia. All I have to do is buy an Inertia and it will fly just like the one you just gave me. No worrying about color, plastic, weight, or run.

I never really bonded with Leopards (the rim and I never got along), but I would agree in the sense that the Patriot is what I wanted the Leopard to be, even though, deep down, I feel like it's much closer to a TL.

The Mongoose is a more understable Roadrunner to me. Super easy to turn out of the box, even for me.

I would almost put the Legend Bandit I threw to be somewhere between a Viking and Valk, but I never spent a ton of time with Leopards.

Maybe I will try and find a Bandit in legend. I have sooooooo many Valkyries though that I won't spend much time or money on the quest.

Bandit is closest to Sidewinder but less fade. Patriot is closest to Eagle L. I really like the Bandit, just would like one in Pinnacle for a bit more stability.
