When someone asks for straight & lots of glide, my first thought is the Aero.

Dart. The grip fits my hand better than the Nova. They're easier to throw in the wind or with some power. The R-Pro blends from a few years ago my buddy used felt really nice.

I do it all with the Dart, driving, approaching and putting. It is a very neutral flyer, that can hold a nice anhyzer line. Darts are great for longer putts. The Dart is more floaty than the Nova.

Current run r-pro darts feel like your gripping a sponge, extremely soft plastic and a dome that gives with the slightest touch. I’m not a fan. However, they really mean that flight rating though, tons of glide and straight as straight goes. However, don’t expect it to hold up at all in the wind.

I ended up flattening my Dart and the disc is a thing of beauty now. If a slower Teebird were a thing, I’d make that argument for a flattened dart.

The ol' "sub-boiling water poured into the flightplate of an upside-down disc on a flat surface, with a cutting board and a few of your favorite books thrown on top" routine. Gets 'em every time, I tells ya!

These two statements contradict each other. Innova does make a slower teebird, it's the BB aviar.

I think of the Classic Aviar DX only or the Discmania version P-1 if one wants a Classic Aviar in a Champion or Star plastic or Performance (Pro besides the D (DX) plastic. Another good one is the Magnet for Putting but not driving, comes in the D both soft and hard, and Jawbreaker.

For me, it's gotta be the Nova, though you probably can't go wrong either way.

My first putter was a dart, and I tend to agree with most of what's been said about it here. It's definitely got a midrange-like feel.

If you don't mind the feel of the Nova, and you can commit to learning how to throw it, it is a tremendously unique disc that just wants to hold lines, settle, and sit down where it lands. It will also make you better at throwing touchy shots with other discs.

When I was studying for the bar the summer before last, I would take short breaks and just throw novas and aviars over and over in the backyard. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it if you commit to a little field work, or even on the course. Once it's dialed in, it's truly a weapon. And it holds it's stability for a looong time. I got one of those christmas protostar ones a few years back, and after heavy use it still won't flip. Both of the darts I had got very flippy after a season or two.
