EX vs. TB is a tiny tiny difference in the mold, specifically on the top near the edge of the wing. this feature alters aerodynamics and weight distribution.
that *exact* same relative feature exists between the Cheetah and Gazelle molds, and they perform very similarly to the E/T pairing, but at a lower speed.
Cheetah and Eagle -- they will turn at HS, and fade at LS
Gazelle and Teebird -- they will resist turn at HS, and mostly hold their line at LS
the way i think of it is that Ch/EX have two lines... the HS and LS lines, and i can manipulate some awesome stuff with that.
then the GZ/TB have one line... straight all the way, one angle from once it flips till it hits the ground or fades from altitude, which is a kickass but less workable line.
the fact that i have all the power/speed headroom in the world to manipulate the Cheetah, whereas i have to muscle an Eagle to make it turn tricks, makes the Cheetah my most used fairway driver. CH/GZ for fairway/slow, and EX/TB for distance or higher speeds / headwinds.
so like i said before, GZ and JLS are so similar, that the GZ fully booted the J -- and due to the EX craze, i discovered the useful characteristics of the EX, and then the highly similar but slower Cheetah.
