Unless recent ones are turning out understable, stay away from the Star Leo3, it tends to be the beefier version. Gstar is the way to go for a Leo3 to show some turn and maybe add a Star to the bag and start working it in.

You can always look used.
I'm not sure I want to part with my Leo3 just yet, and I would have to take it out and throw some 280' ish shots to see if it is as US at that distance, it doesn't have much wear on it but I thought it was pretty US when I bought it. its also 167g if that makes any difference I know my 167g FD started with more turn than the 175g (both C-line) but that was at full power.

Also don't discount a Gold Line River, I know you said innova but the River is pretty magical for this slot. My Selection of speed 7 Fairways though I only Bag a few is full of lots of Teebirds and Eagles and FDs and TLs and FD3 and Banshees and that LEO3... and a River.

The Hannah Leatherman Swirly Star Leo3s are not beefy at all, so I'll reiterate the HL Leo3 as my recommendation. There's a Champion Leo3 that is someone's (Drew Gibson's?) Tour Series disc, so maybe try that and help a tour player out...

I don't know about Leo3's but regular Leos are really straight in premium plastic. They take some beating in to fly decidedly understable. They're great once they get there, though the glide is never going to compare to the more naturally US Pro or DX Leos. TLs are great to beat to death too.

GStar Leo and Leo3 are the way to go! I have two Gstar Leopard's, one a little more beat than the other. 170-172.

Bah! How are there two of the exact same threads going on simultaneously, same
OP, with the same people replying and all???

I digress. You’d find a lot of options branching away from Innova, also. Patriots my current US control. But, markets flooded with them. Can’t go wrong.

I accidentally double posted while trying to edit to add the last sentence. Figured that people would ignore one or the other, especially since there were several replies on one and none on the other for awhile, but eventually the second one got replies, too.

And it wouldn't let me edit one of the posts to blank because I missed the 5-minute window by the time I realized it double-posted.

Sorry!

Hey, it’s all good! Ish happens. It’s just silly cuz posters round these parts are typically quick to point these things out.
Hopefully at least one (or both) of the threads are helpful to you! Cheers
