This^^^

And I'll add that you can easily get them in any weight. This is important to me since I only throw 150 class

Aviars are the least sexy disc on the market; old, slow, beginner friendly, cheap, common, etc.

But they work really well and I currently have 5 in my bag... and I might add #6 and 7 after I beautify them

I bag a beadless Aviar for long putts and straight upshots.

Great disc.

The Aviar is my putter of choice. I have several in DX plastic, one in star plastic, and the one I use in play is a KC-Pro, all 175g. I have never laid my hands on one in Champion plastic, but whenever I see one, I will be buying it.

He said one day he was thinking about it. "How can a spin putter constantly putt at such a high level of consistency?" And he said it's not really plausible. A spin putter has to release at the basket near perfectly every time to make the putt. While a push putter that never deviates from the vertical line can release at many different heights and still hit pole each time, just a bit up or down.

He said there are only three kinds of putters. Spin, push and pitch. A "spush" putter is just a push putter that uses a bit more wrist is what he was pointing out I think. Last sentence is my own, feldy didn't spell it out I inferred it from other things he said.

I'll do some Mcbeast tourny watching and look closer into it.

And maybe we can ask Timg to ask him for a response. I have great conversation recall and I know he said it. If it's true it's another thing.
It is possible for Mr Feldberg to not be wrong either way. First, McBeth might've evolved his style a little bit over time. Second, there may be some semantics, and a gray area of where push and spin putting merge. Third, and similar, McBeth might be doing some push-spin hybrid stroke. Many others, myself included, either consciously or unconsciously do some of both.

Just do what works for you....

I always gravitate towards headless putters. looking back they were all relatively shallow. i think the taller aviar is what is helping me putt so well with it. snagged another mcpro today and man what a great feeling blend on that. i like stiffer putters so i think the mcpro will be my circle putter and a dx for longer runs. plus with the mcpro i can be like mike. or well paul

The Aviar P&A is great. Was the first putter I had and then was replaced by Warlocks (nearly identical mold, but in better plastic) after losing it in a creek. I still have a heavily beat P&A in the bag for jump putts and various upshots.

Sunday morning trolling, Aim?


Maybe, maybe not.

While I had run the gamut looking for the perfect putter and after a lot of practice I've come to the conclusion that I can pretty much putt with anything if I take the time to learn the disc. But, I do putt better with wide rimmed beaded putters due to a cleaner release.

Always liked throwing Aviars, but with no bead, they tend to get caught up in the crease of my finger and I yank them a little too far right.

Sure anyone can putt with anything. And a stack of putters of all sorts helps to learn mechanics. I've learned a shallow putter doesn't work as well for my style. I went back to the putter that is easiest to find cheapest to get a stack of. It is the disc, weather it's real or in my head I'm sinking putts with this disc right now.
