So the Pro would become more "flippy" sooner than the GStar. Which one holds up to tree hits better?

Thanks for the clarification!!!

Others can confirm if this is true or not, but I think a Leopard3 has less dome than a normal Leopard, and so it probably has a bit less glide. So, do you like the amount of dome on your Leopard? Would you prefer a version of it that is a bit flatter?
It is probably impossible to definitively state which will be better for you, but if you (and your son) like Leopards, then get another one. Not suggested in I-Dye though, for the reasons stated by others.

To be honest, my (now my sons) DX Leopard feels pretty flat to me. I don't think I would want anything flatter.

GStar.


Generally speaking, the more premium the plastic, the longer it retains it's flight characteristics (i.e. the slower it ages), and the more stable/overstable a given mold will be. There are some oddball exceptions to this rule of thumb, but it's true for the most part. Here's how most people would rank Innova's plastic in terms of durability. It also happens to be the order most would rank them in terms of relative stabilities for the most part.


Most durable/stable

Champion
Star / Gstar
Pro
DX
R-Pro

Least durable/stable

Blizzard is just Champion with air bubbles in the rim to create lighter weights.
Starlite is Star with similar manufacturing process to achieve lighter weight discs.

Bbb,
ive been throwing pro Leo's for years now and I think that they are the best in terms of glide, break in period, and perfect stability. They are pretty cheap so when I have to stock up I get 2 or 3 at once. I don't think they break in all that fast either and they'll get to a spot where they will hold there stability for a while. They definitely hold up to the abuse I give them in the woods. I use them for turnovers and hyzer flips in the woods. I don't think there is anything better at this. Also if u throw a Teebird they work very well together covering a ton of shots.
Just my 2 cents.

Gstar Leo's are good but they don't break in as consistent as the pros

Default Leopard vs. Leopard3?

Dome varies from disc to disc regardless of leopard or leopard3. That goes for any mold though. I have 3 champ Leo's and one is pretty flat, one mild dome, and one is super domey. In general I've noticed the discs coming out as of now are pretty consistent but that doesn't guarantee all of them will be exactly the same.

Get two. Your son will trash that DX Leo and it would be nice to share the "new disc" excitement together.

Base plastic is for putters and Rocs.
