Default "Good" KC Aviars

So i've got four 12x KC Aviars, one PFN pat.no, one pat.no and two newer ones (i guess). I've shrugged off talk about PFN and pat.no before but it applies perfectly to how I like my KC's. Is this just the way it is or do the still make grippy, stiff, lower profile KC's in newer runs?

New runs of kc aviars feel like dx plastic and come in a multitude of colors. Older kc is almost predominantly white and has a much stiffer feel to it.

Youre prbably looking for san marino aviars

And those I can't afford, I'm guessing.

Could very well be looking for san marino's, but you can easily check the tooling on the bottom of your fav/old ones to make sure.

Possibly. Any patent numbered/pre-flight KC in new or near-new condition definitely goes for a premium.

However, since it sounds like you're planning to throw them, you could look to find some cheaper in used condition. At that point the collectible value goes down (especially if some else has already inked the discs). Good luck finding a seller willing to part with their well-loved KC's, tho.

I putt with KC Aviars. I don't buy expensive/old plastic. I only buy easy to replace/current production discs. Older KC Aviars tend to be stiffer but you can still find good feeling 12x Aviars. You just have to feel them up in person before you buy them. So don't buy them online.

Thanks guys. I'm definitely throwing them. I live in a small town in the north of Sweden, close to Skellefteċ (home of Latitude64) so I don't get to feel up a lot of Innova discs. I was hoping that people had abandoned Innova for Trilogy and would be willing to part with some Aviars, but no luck thus far.

Try some KC glows. I've only had 2, but they were VERY stiff

I will if i come across any. A rare sighting here in Sweden. It's not just the stiffness though, it's the sort of lower profile and that sweet sweet grip I need. The search continues...

Thats the problem with innova. They mass produce so many discs its often hard to find runs you want and covet, and if you do find them they usually fetch a premium. But its also great if youre a mold minimalist like me abd hoard stacks of molds and runs you like.
