How's this disc compare to the classic roc/stud for those that have thrown them flight wise?

sounds like an interesting BH driving putter, but I never could FH an Aviar mold, and versatility is key to me

would be curious to throw the new Aviar3 just to see how it does

thank you for the reviews everyone!

I had the chance to throw one of these yesterday (175 Star) and was thoroughly impressed.

The AV3 feels really good in the hand, it seems fast even just holding it compared to a P2, Aviar or BB Aviar. The flight on a full 300' backhand had just the tiniest amount of turn before a deliberate fade. It also seemed like a better choice than Aviar for FH approaches, the flat top and strong HSS/LSS take well to some extra spin.

I'd think this disc will be a gateway for people who aren't seasoned with driving putters or only drive OS putters. The AV3 seems to handle OAT well, even without being super overstable. Where even a BB or KC Aviar would hold an OAT turn, this baby fights back to stable and then starts its fade.

The S-Line P2 would probably be the closest disc to this that I've personally thrown, but the SP2 feels deeper in the hand and has a dumpy/glideless flight especially compared to the AV3.

I'm not sure about this disc for putting, it could have been the Star plastic or the shape of the disc that threw me off. It seemed to shine on drives and approaches versus in the circle. I'd be really interested to try one of these in KC pro, but would still consider bagging a Star.

I think if people throw this disc it will gain a large following.

Thanks for the review - what I highlighted is why the s-line P2 never stuck in my bag. The should feels so high on those, even when compared to d-line P2s! AV3 sounds like my solution!

How does it compare to a Stud? Also Envy if you have tried one.
The envy was the hardest disc I've had to replace in my bag since I went all innova. I had been using a p2 in this slot but it doesn't quite have as much stability as the envy and it's a shorter disc. I believe the aviar3 is innovas answer to the envy. The aviar3 is a little bit more stable than an envy but it won't take long to beat it in. It feels very similar in hand (shallow, comfortable, putter) and I can really mash on it without worrying about turning it over. If you can I'd pick one up.

This is an aviar mold like you've never felt before. It's one of the best feeling putters for forehand I've ever throw.

I switched to aviar3 from P2s and before that from wardens. I have also thrown P3s and Zones quite a bit.

Aviar3 is less like the p2 than I hoped. It definitely seems more OS, I'd put it inbetween the p2 and the p3 but definitely closer to the p2. I'm comparing it to the FR D line P3s and Luster P2s.

The profile is great, very shallow. Not zone shallow/compact but definitely like a p3 where it doesn't quite have that putter feel in the hand. I haven't thrown it enough to give it a comprehensive review but I made the switch purely based on feel in the hand, not flight path. I'm hoping they release these in pro plastic. I'd like to test it more side by side with p3s and my blend wardens.

I wouldn't call it an OS putter but it's definitely straight with a hearty fade. Then again...p3s aren't necessarily Os. I haven't thrown any of the newer ones though.

Any forehand primary people throwing the AV3? How does it stack up?
