I'm really glad they are making this in Dx...that was my main hangup and why the Lion isn't in my bag. The Star I had is that great #1-#2 Roc flight but I didn't want to try and season because it would take forever...but now I can give it a shot with a Dx.

I hope they make the DX Lion in <170 gram weights. I would like to give it a try but prefer mids in the mid-upper 160s.

I ordered a lion, but never threw it... I just couldn't get a good grip. Not because of the mold, but the plastic and oversize stamp were too slick to my hand. I suppose it could have been me, but none of the other star-plastic discs I own/throw felt anything like it (to me).

Anyway, put it in the CTP box at my league and went back to the Emac. I know, commie disc, but can't argue with how it flies (for me)...

What do your guys' midrange lineups look like with Lions? I would guess Gator / Lion / Mako3

Mine would drop the Shark 3 for a Lion as the Lion is almost the same as a Shark 3, keeping the Shark for more an approach disc/driving putter and emergency windy putter as the Lion is not a higher dome like a Shark but lower dome more like the high dome DX ROC's. I only have one midrange I use for midrange activity as the Impact is a between midrange and fairway driver.

I tried the Lion when it first came out (in the Lion color stamp). I did not find the one I bought to be overstable and in fact mine is understable. I have never bagged it because it really has not place in my bag. I was looking for an overstable mid based on the videos and I was disappointed. I am currently bagging a Malta which I really like.

I might have to drop the Shark 3 for a Lion when my Champion Shark 3 either get lost or wear out. It looks like from The Innova Factory Store that the Shark 3 is going oop for the Lion.

I'm trying to figure out where the Lion would fit in with my Manta, Rocs and Caiman.

Maybe I'll pick up a Lion this afternoon and try it this weekend.
