Default Avenger SS

DGCR world,

What would you rate the Avenger SS on the speed scale? I've checked a lot of different sites that rate it as a speed 9 to 11. I want to hear directly from the people.

I bought one not too long ago in EliteZ plastic. I think it's rated right as a 10. I get more distance with my Saint, which is rated 9 but has a ton of glide but is more OS.

I'd give it a speed 9, but that's based on my very limited time with one. what's the rim width tho?

InfiniteDiscs has it at a 1.9 rim width. Same as the Valkyrie (speed 9).

I'd say the Avenger SS is right in that 9-10 area. I have a Ti Avenger SS and also one in Elite Z plastic. Both fly similar and are pretty understable for me. I'd have to hyzerflip an Avenger SS to get the same flight that a 'normal' throw with a Champion Sidewinder gets me.

I'm thinking about replacing my Roadrunner with it. Something Sidewinder-ish stable but with that Discraft consistency. My Roadrunner gets a little too squirrelly sometimes.

Personally, I think the A SS is slower than a Valk. I'd rate it more like an 8, really. It's understable with good glide so I can throw it similar distances, but the A SS spends more time in the air to do it.

Made me look; the A SS has a larger diameter (21.4) so comparing an A SS to a Sidewinder is like comparing a Gazelle to a Cyclone. They end up in about the same place, but the Discraft disc uses more glide and hangs in the air longer.

I bag one. I'd say about a 9-10 speed compared to Innova discs.

i have an X version and a Z version of the Avenger SS

The X is getting too flippy after some use, but it works great for BH cut rollers now
The Z version is new, and needs to break in a little

Great disc for hyzerflips/rollers/long turnovers- not for windy days
