Probably an XT Aviar, but maybe an Electron Envy?

Since the Nova IS an Avair, but with an overmold, then other Aviars will be close in feel. But that overmold does make it unique in flight and feel. As to the Envy, my Envys feel more shallow to me.

Strange to me that all the AVIARs is PDGA approved at "Center Height 2,0cm" but the NOVA is at 2,7cm. . .so if the NOVA is a AVIAR why the BIG difference in height?

I've got a regular Nova and a fresher glow in the bag, definitely dig both. The glow is maybe a touch more stable but still very neutral. Someone earlier in the thread asked which Aviar the Nova is closest to in feel, and I find it most similar to the P2 in hand due to their similar depth. P2 is understandably way more stable.

Maybe it’s because I’m still in the honeymoon phase but the nova seems like magic. I just got done yard testing it for 100-150ft upshots and it’s has a very unique flight compared to any other putter I’ve thrown. It’s like a baby comet. So responsive and touchy, capable of flying far with very minimal power. I accidentally threw it dead straight 250-275’ with a full reach back stand still.

For Nova the closest Innova disc is not an Aviar but a Whale due to how deep they are. I had picked up a Whale and Nova production run at a Walmart and the Aviar is is not close. I tried a classic Aviar and nope , even tried a Avair P&A nope.

The Whale is the same height as the Aviar, has a V-tech bottom piece, and a bead...

Pretty sure DD has said somewhere on video the Whale is a BB V-tech Aviar. He also said the Nova is a PnA Aviar.
