I've felt them up at a store, very nice. A little softer than I prefer though, and much softer than DX. Felt most similar to Yeti.

Gotcha may be a deal breaker as I like me some harder putters.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a 'soft' putter by any means, just softer than the stiff DX. If you've felt Yeti, XT Pro is almost the same in feel and flex. Or Zero medium if you're more familiar with that.

I wish they would make the Aviar-X mold in a plastic other than JK Pro, super awesome mold but i can destroy JK Pro in a week or two with heavy use. I have a feeling a Champion Aviar-X would be a helluva driving putter as well. For those griping about beadless putters, there are also Big Bead Aviars and the Omega, which is an Aviar with a microbead. So why hate?

Lol


The xt aviar feels a lot like yeti but doesn't have that funky top. Good feeling plastic. Not too too soft. couple shades softer then KC. But you get that nice tackiness that some people need while putting where most kc are slick until they wear it off.

JK are much more flimsy. Not a fan of JK feel

Pretty sure the Aviar-X is JK Pro only, I have only seen the Aviar-X in JK Pro. I love the mold but do not love the plastic, feels like a mix of R-Pro and DX, grabs chains but does not wear well at all.
