Less stable than last years for me, closer to a standard champ leo. Nice pliable plastic like pearly champ circa 2006

I don't see anything that you can't get out of the normal Leo variations. I guess if you want a new Leo and you wanted to make sure it is slightly understable, then the Leo3 is the way to go. The flight isn't substantially different, though.

I think the regular Leos go further... but distance isn't usually why you reach for the Leo instead of a Wraith/Destroyer/etc. Still. I'll probably stick with the regular Leos for the glide.

Average shot of the day was 385'.
Long shot of the day was 427' according to UDisc. This was a golf line that got some assistance from just the right poof of air, not a big distance line.

I can understand the above, and I agree that there's not a LOT of difference between the Leo3. I like the feel and relative flatness of the Leo3, and I get more distance with the Leo3, which is a good thing on longer woods holes on courses near me... agree that in the open I likely will reach for my Sphinx. So if those Leo3s need a loving home....

Yep, agreed...maybe slightly less stable on average but its basically the same. I would just pick either Leo or Leo3 based on the color and plastic feel or PLH in the store that day.

How was Gstar compared to star/champ? Can the Gstar still handle that much power?

It's brand-spankin'-new... so it handled it. It was obviously less OS than the Champ or Star, obviously more OS than the DX, and pretty sweet out of the box. The problem is, I'd rather beat a disc into this stability. I can see the G* being a good option for scary shots where you don't want to lose your Champ Leo that has been beating in for multiple seasons.

That sounds about right. Gstar flies like you want immediately, but may beat in too much. That said I only have one Gstar disc currently and I have been impressed with its durability, even though for some reason I always think it'll beat in too much.

I don't love FH'ing Gstar discs, but a Leo-type slot is one of the few stabilities I wouldn't buy for dual duty. Totally possible, but mostly unnecessary for me.
