I really like flippy stuff. I throw a Neutron Relay fair amount right now. I'm picturing Pro Leopard to be a little less stable than that and more glidey (not that the Relay can't boom). But these just assumptions and may not be comparable.

The Pro Leopard is closer to DX while wearing much slower. It will be a little less touchy to form flaws but will still glide in ways that the more premium blends won't. It really is the perfect disc to complement Comets because it will expose nose angle issues when the Comet will power through them.

In terms of comparing it to the Relay, I have only thrown one Relay (a Circuit stamp), but it flipped a lot easier to flat but locked in flat and didn't move off its line. The Pro Leopard will be less prone to flip, but once it gets there, it's not going to stop suddenly at flat like my Relay did. Despite all that, it's still amazingly controllable and predictable. Great mold whether I can adjust to the notch in the wing or not.
As others have mentioned, DX Leos are already kinda flippy and beat in way too quickly. I have a 175g Pro in the bag, and it's easy to turn, hyzer flip for straight tunnels, or even throw high flexes, but without turning/burning even with 100% power. It's of good use on any course but especially good on wooded courses. I think they start in surprisingly OS but beat in quickly and stay in a good spot for a long time.

I also bag a Neutron Relay, but only on wooded courses. It definitely has less HSS but maintains the line as someone else said. I use it for shots that I need to turn right even if I throw well under full power. I don't find much use for it at full power.

I said Comet earlier, and I stick with it, as it can appeal to all players.

however, as a purely FUN disc, that has no real equal out of the box, I submit the Stratus, in X plastic. I realize this disc will be totally lost on the torque-monkeys here who will cry and moan about being stupid US and "turn and burn" and uncontrollable, but for truly unique hyzer-flip and turnover lines, there's nothing like it.

I'm throwing these out there as I find them my most used discs as well as they fly incredible and made some beautiful shots
You have to try these:

Axiom PROXY - Straight premium putter 3/3/0/0

MVP ATOM - Like a proxy3 - 3.5/3/0/1

Axiom ALIAS - Super straight midrange - 4/4/0/1

Also Have Seen the Stratus be used as one of the best Roller discs ever. Stratus is not Stupid US to me but the disc that is Stupid US, is a Mamba as I see players use the disc and unless you need to go left a soon as disc has been released and you do not have a distance forehand then no a Mamba is not for you. The speed needed to get an 11 speed disc going will have the Mamba turning to fly off to the left. How Dave D uses such a US disc in some Disc Golf Answerman Videos on YouTube without hyzer and have the disc fly straight is beyond me.

Everything moves slower when you get to Dave D age.

Please link to the video of the Innova owner throwing a Discraft disc on a DD podcast.

I think Casey was saying Dave Dunipace was throwing a Mamba... which is an Innova disc.

I mean my Casey to English translation tool took that to mean Dave D threw a Mamba in a #AskDave video somewhere along the line. Yours gave a different result?
