Agreed. K3 = good stuff. K3 Reko = really good disc.

Thanks for the information. Was going to order a couple of the Warlock S putters to try (white) but after hearing this I'm not so sure. Again, hardness/softness or the putter doesn't matter as much to me as the slick/not slick feel. Love the feel of my SSS (not tacky, but sort of like a velvet grip) but was hoping for a bit stiffer - definitely don't want to go to slick though.

Again, I appreciate the input!

Does anybody have an opinion on Champion Aviars? My Star two-rings have seen better days. I use these for straight-tunnel shots and approaches, no putting here.

I’ve got a green f2 champ aviar at 170g. To me it flies just like the flight numbers. It goes straight, then fades a little. Holds lines just as well as a DX, just a little less glide.

I'm not a fan of Champ style plastics for putting. I need baseline to putt based on feel. Champ style plastics putters are better for me off the tee.

I have a couple of Champion Aviar P&As. One is a bit more stable than the other. They're pretty good throwers, and if you like/prefer Aviars, I suspect you'll like the Champion Aviars.

I’ve been using McPro, grid stamp classic, and DX P&A for several years now. Just got first Champion version, immediately noticeable it molded up more shallow and comfortable, for a driving type putter, than the other plastics I’ve tried. DX is deepest, and McPro depth is between DX and Champ. Hoping it has a flight as good as the shallow feel.

Still loving my Warlock SSS, but just out of curiosity, is there an Aviar P&A plastic (XT Pro, R Pro, Champion, Star, GStar, Glow, other) that feels similar to the Trilogy Lucid, VIP, or Opto? (ie: grippy, firm, and durable)

Thanks!

IMHO your best bet on this is going to be the Champion Aviar P&A.
