I support the Pro option. I think Star or Champ start out a little too overstable to be a particularly good beginner disc, at least for what a Leopard should be. Pro starts with some decent flip early on, and beats in nicely. Give it a shot.

One of my first discs was a DX Manta, recommended by local pro Tom Monroe. I liked it, but my 7yo son did too, so it became his. I replaced it with a Star version, and it does really well for me. I don't throw well enough yet to notice the difference between the different plastics being more or less stable than others, but that will happen. I now have a Comet in 4 different plastics, I think...

I have a 150g star leo I used while starting out, then gave to my kids- best of both worlds if you ask me. Pro plastic discs are kind of crap imo, they feel primo but beat in as fast if not faster than DX and that can be confusing to someone starting out. I’ve had a pro disc go flippy after literally 3 throws. I prefer lighter star because it holds that flight long enough to build yourself around, and at slower speeds there’s no danger of the flight changing while you’re still figuring out your throws.

Just my .02 but it definitely helped me nail down a lot of things.
