Review: This is a great side arm approach disc. It flies straight, fast, and low. It fades predictabley at the end of its flight. If you really snap it will go understable and turn over slightly and not fade back all the way. However if you don't try and kill it the disc is great. More stable then the dx. I wish innova would bring it back.

I love this disc...it seems to do exactly what I want it to do every time I take it out of the bag. I throw with my right hand and have been looking for a consistent disc that I could throw flat / or with a slight anhyzer and have it turnover gradually with a little fade at the end. The KC Cheetah does this perfectly. It's saved me countless stokes on lefty holes! The only problem I've had with this disc is remembering to throw it high enough to get the right amount of distance. If you throw it too low it will ground itself quickly. I've thrown the DX Cheetah and the KC goes farther and is more stable.

I really like this disc. It was a pleasant surprise for me. After reading other people's reviews I wasn't expecting much but I find it to be a very straight flyer. Good for fairly long straight shots. Pinpoint accuracy for me. I made an eagle on a par 4 the second time that I played with this disc. Will also anhyzer if thrown with a bit of height and a fair amount of power.

My Review:
The KC Pro Cheetah is a fast, small diameter stable to understable driver. The KC Cheetah's flight path is similar to a Polaris LS but with more high speed turn, more fade, and a little less glide. I would say it is most similar to the JLS, but I feel that the JLS's defining tendencies separate the two quite a bit. The Cheetah's low profile design and shallow rim depth fit right in with the Polaris LS and Gazelle era of drivers. This disc flies very well when kept low and with a straight flight path in mind. It works well for line-drive s-curves and bigger arms can probably throw this disc as a roller. The KC Cheetah does have quite a bit of low speed fade, in the ballpark of a JLS, Eagle, or XL but if it's kept low, the fade can be kept to a minimum. The Cheetah does not have a great amount of lift or glide, but it can be thrown straight without a lot of power making it a good choice for newer players. Due to it's fairly low resistance to turnover, I would not recommend throwing this disc into strong headwinds and crosswinds. Unfortunately, it's not the best choice for anhyzer or turnover drives until it's broken in as it will try to flex out and fade left as it slows down. This disc is beginner friendly and a favorite amongst many newer players but it is not my number one choice for a first small-diameter driver.
