The Innova Echo Star Leopard is a great beginner friendly understable fairway driver. It should be everyone’s first disc golf driver as it is easy to throw straight and far and has excellent glide. 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. A highly recommended beginner friendly fairway driver!

What others have said:
"The Leopard's shallow rim depth and neutral flight characteristics make it an excellent choice for beginners. I prefer the Leopard for fairway shots I need to turnover smoothly." - Ryan Lane
"The GStar Leopard is a good, straight flyer with a slow fade at the end of its flight. It is extremely reliable and very grippy in the GStar material." - Hannah Leatherman
"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
