Why ask questions like this? Things can always be simplified and generalized. Comparing discs across companies is a mute point.

My C-Line FD is nothing like the Leopard3. My FD is overstable and barely turns. The Leopard 3 will be understable out of the box in premium plastic. No need to season anything.

well I didn't say C-Line. Guess I should have specified S-Line. My domey C-Lines are nice and flippy too. I'd imagine the difference isn't going to be a huge margin by any means.

You must have a second run fd nothing like any other run of c line fd really a different disc altogether. Normal fd's are more understable than new champ leopards out of the box.

No need to season anything.

Flight wise? Maybe. Probably very similar as they both use the leopard rim. Most shared mold piece discs are pretty similar

Agreed, its got to be a 2nd run. I had a 2nd run as my first FD and hated it. It flew like a fresh teebird. Not at all what I wanted so i ditched it and never looked back. Later learning that it was not me, it was the run of the FD that was like that, and the newer (5th?) run was everything the FD is loved for.

There's plenty of frankenmolds that are nothing like their mold piece mates. Jls is nothing like a whippet, cobra and stingray both understable make an os mid in the sentinel when combined.
That's just a couple off the top of my head but there's a lot more than that.

There is also a lot off the top of my head that are also very similar.

Firebird/PD/FD3/Starfire

Pd2/Xcal

DD/wraith

Why are we even arguing about this?

There are some distinct differences.

I've found the Leopard3 to have less resistance to fighting out of an anny, whereas I can get an FD to come back 90% of the time. The FD also handles headwinds better and tends to fade a bit more when fresh. FDs also have a bit more glide, so the Leopard3 feels a bit faster even if it technically isn't.

I could see using a Leopard3 as your understable FD if you don't feel like beating one in or don't have a big arm.

No arguing here just making the point that sharing mold pieces doesn't necessarily make a similar disc.

Also leopards and fd's do not share the same wing so it was a moot point to begin with.
