Thoughts on a Legacy Patriot?

Postby UncleBrother2001 » Wed Apr 16, 2014 3:17 pm

I'm might be trying a Patriot soon but have never thrown one.

I have Rivers in my bag,but they can be flippy at times which can be a pain. They are still great discs though.

I have thrown Leopards in the past as well,they were not as flippy as the Rivers and I could really put the power down on them.

Would you say you could compare the Patriot to a River or a Leopard?

Rivers can get squirrely in any kind of wind. Add in the huge glide and it's not a good combination. I eventually found the River useless on most courses, but a blast to throw at fields.

Patriot should compare more closely to the Leopard than the River. I haven't throw a Patriot, but have handled a few, and it appears to me they would be able to handle more power than a Leopard...a little wider rim, a little more stable.

Cool that's good to know man. I've never handled one before so I was hoping they would seem a bit more stable.

They're rated a little more stable than the Leopard...per 'Inbounds' and also reviews. 1.8cm rim width compared to 1.6cm for the Leopard. Which makes me think the Patriot might be more like a stable-understable Teebird than a Leopard.

Patriots are my favorite driver to come out in the last few years. They are like old CE Leopards with a slight bump in speed. Just plain stable and break in for super smooth turns.

Will be next on my list for sure. :lol:

I went with a Icon just because I have a Pinnacle in my Rival. I'm sure the Flight between the Icon and Pinnacle shouldn't vary that much.

The Patriot is the first Legacy disc I threw, and my favorite. It's a disc that can take a lot of spin, and loves to fly on all sorts of lines. It's the best shot makers disc to come out since the PD for me.

Also, Pinnacle plastic. The 1st run Icons are the most flippy. They make fantastic rollers and are really fun to throw on flippy lines.

Blue was bad i have not thrown others. It was supaflippy. The blue ones were described as the most flippy of them all with a large stability gap to the others IIRC. So a regular one should be good. Kinda mkaes me want to try out a regular one even though the grip is not tacky enough for most of the season here. Somebody (JHern?) posted a comaprison of different plastics copied from elsewhere in the Patriot thread here so you should read that thread.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

In the comparison of the early blue Icon at least any other should be significantly more HSS.

I have no idea. I I know every first run Icon I've picked up has been under stable. I now that the 1st run Pinnacle Patriots that are gummy are slightly overstable. And everything else is basically straight stable.
