Default so which leopards are actually understable? looking for a new understable fairway..

I ask this because I borrowed a friends leopard the other day and threw it about 390 after it flipped up(not much of a hyzer flip either) to flat.. at that distance it showed no signs of turning over. For the record it was a 175 champ leopard.. a newer run.

What would a star or pro behave like? Ive been hearing pro leopards are awesome.. but what about the stars?

My amps are too flippy for my liking, so im curious about other understable fairways seeing as the proton amp isnt out yet.

I would get a Star Leopard.

But DGCR's response will be.....

Get a River.

Get a River was so 2011....now you should get an underworld. They're flippy when new but not overly so. I can throw them much farther than I've ever thrown a Leo.


Pro leopards are nice though. If you like that plastic try one out. I just never liked how it wears. It gets to the sweet spot or starts that way and is gone in no time. I can beat on a new tp or vip underworld and it just stays where it's at wearing very slowly.

150 champ leopards are quite understable, and feel awesome.

The river will probably be too flippy based on when I used to own one, but maybe I could try a friends and see if thats still the case.

So how would this underworld fly at 340-400 ft of power?

Get an Icon Patriot.

Its a beefier feeling Leopard(bigger in the hand) that is much easier to control and turn

If a river was too understable for your needs then forget the underworld. They easily turn but that's what I use it for. 400 foot of power thrown with hyzer would probably get you a sweet turnover that held to the ground or maybe just faded back a little at the end. Really just depends on your form but they are fast for a speed 7 and glide so long. I can almost throw mine as far as the renegade or bolt and they are much faster discs.
