How do you know when a leopard is stalking you? You don’t. They’re so quiet, unsuspecting prey will never hear them coming. Dual Leopards on the prowl is the featured artwork in the third edition of our Zen Series.
About the Leopard3
The Leopard3 has a nice controllable turn right out of the box. It can be thrown smooth for straighter shots, or harder for more turn. Adjusting the angle of release allows the Leopard3 to be an incredibly versatile fairway driver.
Discs within the 3 Series including the Leopard3 are generally faster and have less glide for more control than their original counterpart.
More About This Run
Each disc has two different kinds of stamps. One for each leopard.
175: Moderate dome. (the green is flatter though).
Grippy new champion feel.
170-172: Fairly flat.Darker colors are more opaque.
165-169: Poppy. Semi opaque.
More About the Design
With its contoured tail and arching back, the leopard animal lends itself well to the yin-yang style of the Zen Series.
“I wanted to create a leopard that has a sense of movement itself so that your eye follows it as it leads into the next leopard,” said artist Ryan Advent, who said the familiar Yin and yang designs were a strong inspiration here.
