Default Return after a long break: What happened to Innova?

Leopard 3? Teebird3? Roc3? What are these? Why are they re-tooled? Was good not quite good enough?

Gotta keep up with the Jones's. There's really nothing more to it.

Its a new top. And a way to market classic molds to a newer generation of players.

That's fair, I guess. Are the flights comparable?

Pretty much. They're all a bit flatter, and that's basically the only difference. The roc3 is in general is a bit less stable then the traditional roc. The roc3 is super popular these days because the best player in the world throws the crap out of them.

The same can be said about the McPro Aviars, I suppose. I have wanted to try them, but couldn't justify the additional cost just because it had his name on it. Additionally, I have no idea how they stack up against the traditional Aviars (no bead), JK Aviars(bead soft), and KC Aviars(bead firm).

Mcpro Aviars are just regular PnA's in a better plastic right?

Firmer plastic is all I have gathered. KC Pro plastic without the bead? Heck, I can't keep em straight.

Sounds great! I guess I have to wait for the craze to settle down. I always seem to miss them when they go on sale. Still, a steep price for a putter.
