Default Avenger SS or Sidewinder

So I have been working on my turnover shot RHBH and I had a sidewinder and liked it, but it is gone now.
Anyone out there throw the Avenger SS? How would it compare?
I am no brand snob either way, I like both and any brands. But was thinking about trying some Discraft drivers.
What do you guys think

Default Pretty much Identical

I have both in champ. Between the 2 there are very subtle differences, essentially the same.

The SS turns a fraction more and pulls back in a little harder,

But i have been throwing a sidewinder ever since i started the game it was my first and favorite driver for years, so it was a big deal to switch to the SS, in the end after months of the 2 duking it out in the bag it came down quite simply to the fact that my SS is bright red, just a little easier to spot than my autumn yellow sidewinder.

You cant go wrong with either imho.

You have one in champ and one in Z. Yeah I'm being nitpicky, its late, I just got off work.
I prefer the Sidewinder for big anhyzer or S shots.
The Avenger SS in my experience makes an awesome roller, and is even easier for a smaller arm to put out a good distance. When I could hardly hit 200' BH with any disc, the Avenger SS would hit 250-60 for me.

my two cents, do with it what you will.

Hey at least they have some idea. At the course I play at here in the UK i have seen people use the baskets as bins, bike stands and BBQ's. There is nothing like the sound of empty beer cans as you hit an ace.

Recently some baskets have had some graffiti on them, i would tell you what they say, but it would probably get all ***** out! Infact one local took exception to the baskets entirely and had a go at them with a cricket bat. Kudos to discraft baskets, they are still fully functional, but do look like an elephant has bumped into them at night!

Avenger SS is available in FLX plastic, but that is personally the only advantage I see.

I loved my older flx avenger ss.

But the newer one i got is quite stable.
I have the arm to turn over my destroyers so an avenger ss is pretty flippy for me.

but when I turn it over it stables back ALOT harder then my sidewinder ever would.

The Avenger SS replaced my Sidewinder. I thought it went a bit farther, no the Vision has replaced my Avenger SS.

only because I lost the Avenger SS. Those 3 are all good for what you need.
