I don't get NOT making the disc into production, a Leo is a VERY popular mold, why waste it on any more DX or Pro plastic, make some sweet Champ L3's !!!! puh puh puh please?
Out of sheer curiosity, what niche is Leopard3 filling that is so empty? A faster Leopard? Welcome to the TL. Flatter, and therefore faster but more overstable... welcome to the Teebird, or the Teebird3 or TL3!

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against a Leopard3... just wondering why it would be so special....

Because a flat Leopard is better than a domey Leopard.

Also some people prefer the feel of flatter discs.

Plus TLs shouldn't have turn out of the box.

Leopards do.

TLs are 7/5/0/1. My guess is the Leo3 is 7/5/[-1 or -2]/1.

I wouldn't imagine it being more overstable. I would like to see the same disc flight #'s just a 7 instead of 6 and a flatter top if possible. because that would be sweet.,.....i think

Totally different wing.

Anyone who has held a Leopard3 would be able to see that right away.

Hopefully a good turnover fairway driver out of the box in champ plastic. It takes far too long to beat a good champ leopard in to do the actual leopard stuff. Not super domey and turn out of the box is what I'm interested in.

Thanks for all the replies. As I understand it, the "3" series feature very flat top discs... The Roc3 and Mako3 are certainly very flat- domed for me. So I wonder if that will be the case, and will add stability and less glide to the Leopard (Mako3 and Roc3 were listed as less glide than their non-3 counterparts).

On the other side of the coin, if the Leopard3 is faster but still understable, it fills a hole in Innova's lineup. We'll have to see if that understability would be the case, (if they do put out L3s, of course).
