I'd replace the beat Gazelle with a Leopard.

what?! a beat gazelle is a *wonderful* turnover disc, and adding a leopard would just add a new mold to the bag.

It's not as if he has too many molds. I always thought the Leopard to be more predictable than a beat up anything.

While I don't think the leopard is a bad disc, I just never really liked it.

Sorry, but I don't ever see this happening.
Good answer. There are only a small hanful of discs that are as or more predictable for a turnover than a beat DX Gazelle and the Leopard isn't one of them.

You can always try the good o'l DX Teebird there, too.

I have thought about putting the DX Teebirds back in the bag (actually one made it back in for a couple of tourneys where I knew the courses and it still does what I ask of it) but wanted to play around with something new to me so decided to mess around with the Z XL. It's a pretty close call and like both. The Z XL I have is used so would like to pick one up new and see how it is from the beginning for myself since I know how DX Teebirds break in. Just all part of the fun in trying out different discs.

Excellent bag.

And yes, KEEP THE GAZELLE.
I went to an XL from the Leopard. The Leopard is no where near as consistent as a beat in Gazelle. Leopards seem like a good idea at first but as your game grows, they become more of a hindrance than a help.

To me both Gazelle and Leopards are touch discs. Gazelle handles winds minimally and Leos not at all. I can easily put more speed than I have snap to compensate for on both these discs. No joy in headwinds and on days when my timing is off and I start to accelerate my arm too early. No late power focus kills the usability of these discs for speed dominated throwers like me.
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.

That's true. They don't handle winds well. The Gazelle is a better choice though imo than a Leopard would be. If you can, find a Pro Gazelle. These things are sweet.

For some reason I felt like the leopard had a different rim than the gazelle - just the way it felt. Dunno if it's true, but it turned me off just picking it up. Gazelle felt more like the TL/Teebird, etc.

Leos and GZs have very different rims.
GZs look like EXs except thinner.
Leos look like ELs.

Not that the Banshee is a bad disc, but wouldn't a Predator or Firebird or XXX do the same role better??
