Default Aviarx3

Did not see a thread on this disc yet, though I did see it was being discussed on the new Innova stuff thread. Just got my pre-release prototype in today and took it out for some practice throws. So far I am a really big fan. I was surprised to see how much of a puddle-top mine had when it came in. Feels great both forehand and backhand. Definitely a lot more stable than my Star aviar3 and a touch more stable than the new P3X. Maybe not quite as stable as my zones but it is pretty close. I was really happy with how clean it comes out of the hand sidearm. Also had times with a pretty big headwind today and it did not phase it at all.

Has anyone else gotten the chance to throw this yet? Would be interested to hear your thoughts. I think this is a disc that is going to be really well received.

Word, its a new trend. these thinner throwing putters. They are really useful, like speed 4 discs.

I am going to guess it will be Innova's Envy. Which is a good move by them. Aviar 3 is sweet, 3x is just a good idea. interested to see this when its out.

I'm looking forward to trying out the AviarX3. Your review is promising. I really want an "Innova Zone". Hopefully this mold makes sure I never throw a Pig again. I hope they all come out puddle topped or at least board flat. Star plastic is nice but they should release it in other plastic types. They should have just given this mold a completely new name.

I must have the least overstable Envy in the history of Disc Golf, because my Neutron Envy just is not "all that" overstable. My Envy is comparable to my Star Stud, perhaps with a bit less glide than the Stud. My Envy is not as overstable as any of my Harps or my ESP Zone. The Envy is a good disc and I'm not trying to disparage it, and this isn't aimed at ThomasOrion specifically. But my experience with it is not one of overstability...
(/soapbox)

Okay, back to regularly scheduled commenting: I'm glad to hear the AviarX3 is more overstable than the Aviar3. I'm looking forward to trying one if ever I can get my paws on one (at a non-ridiculous price).

Sounds a lot like a Jokeri, which is one of the best throwing putters that's ever been made. I'll probably pass on this one like I do with most of the new Innova stuff these days. That slot is already pretty well filled for me between Harp, Zone, Suspect, Stego, Scale, Envy, Pa1, Jokeri, Berg and Stego. With the Envy being the least OS of the bunch.

definitely way more stable than any envy I've ever thrown. I'd put it on the same playing field as esp zone maybe a tick less. I was not disappointed with the stability at all

Can we get a profile pic? I'm curious if this could make me change away from my Rhynos, especially if it gets both R-Pro and XT as options, seeing as Innova has failed to release XT Rhynos.

I was hoping for a bead but oh well. I'll have to wait until someone local gets their hands on one or I go to somewhere i can feel it up to see if I could putt with it. If not it may still be my FH approach disc as the bead on the Rhyno does mess with my timing.
