The Innova GStar Leopard is a great beginner friendly fairway driver that is understable. It should be everyone’s first driver as it is easy to throw straight and far and has excellent glide. GStar offers flexibility and even more grip. It has an opaque color like Star, with a pearlescent sheen that players love. The Leopard is a great turnover disc for players of all skill levels. More experienced players can use the Leopard for throwing distance-stretching “Hyzer Flip” shots. Especially as it ages, the Leopard makes a dependable long range roller.
It is a great choice for a straight line driver, an all around driver, anhyzer shots, rollers, beginner's first driver, and as a young disc golf player's first driver in lighter weights. Highly recommended beginner friendly fairway driver.

About GStar plastic in general - it has more flexibility and more grip than regular Star. It's more flexible in cold weather yet not floppy in hot weather. It retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastic. It's just as durable as Star and maybe slightly more since added flexibility prevents damage during hard hits. All said and done, it offers high performance, longevity, superior grip, flexibility and an amazing pearlescent sheen.

"Of course the Leopard is in my hand for the left to right drives, but I'll also use it on the shorter, low-ceiling holes that are long enough to need the glide advantage of a driver. With a lighter delivery and softer grip, the leopard will take me straight to the bank." - Simon Lizotte
"This is my favorite disc ever made!!! I personally carry 3 of them in the bag. Perfect for Mid-Range shots that require low ceiling. I also carry a lighter DX version for rescue shots. The straightness of this disc allows you to throw confident shots in the woods. If you don't have one, you could be costing yourself strokes on the course." - Ken Franks
