I moved from wiz to aviar because of the nose shape and glide. I started throwing wizards because of the forums and I hooked my buddy, but... I won't be going back unfortunately.

Well, my middle finger is pretty sore from yesterday's rounds so my putting was a bit off today and never quite found my rhythm. I these seem more prone to spit through than the kc aviars. These don't glide quite as well yet either. I'm sure that will change as they season and gain some grip. They take abuse like a champ though. The ss work as approach and short drivers, definitely less hss. Pretty neutral. Not bad at all.

Hmmm. See now, here we have a conundrum. The kc aviars actually fit my hand better now that I got to putt and throw extensively each one. And now I have found a beaten up star aviar driver.

The ss big beads freaking crush. As a driving putter and on the approach, they are hella fun to throw. Same with the pro big beads.

If I really want to make these things work i think the answer here is to use the pro omega big beads for driving and approach until they season and lose some of that bead and start developing a puddle top. Also maybe set them out in the sun for a few days. Then I think they'll pick up some grip and start to feel more like my used kc aviars.

I dunno. I just really like the plastic they're in and how well they drive and approach. After all that back and forth I just find myself wanting to bag kc's again.

Also the doggy style will be removed in favor of a super hero.

Alright, fuggit. I shouldn't have to work that hard to make it work. Kc aviars back in. I'll throw some jk pro for the soft role and keep my star aviar drivers for bookends like I do with my ppd/spd, solf/molf.

Phew. Thank goodness that's over with. I was really stressed out there for a second.

Super heros are still going to usurp the doggy style.

Annnnnd turns out I don't even want/need the jk pro. A little too much flex when ripped on. I like them, but I am just going to stick with kc pro and star or champ. My two year old kc aviar is stupidly straight with a late turn when thrown hard and I was crushing it today. I drove with it for a couple months when I first got it and haven't since...but the grip is fantastic and I really had some amazing shots with it today, it's brought me back around to the enjoyment of driving putters. The kc will season and cycle over the years and the champs and star will hold the end spot down.


Consider my bag on lockdown for now.

Kc aviar x2 for putts so I never have to use a mini. It's a mojo thing.
Kc aviar x2 for drives and approaches, 1 very beat and perfectly neutral, 1 fresh and beefy for seasoning.
Champ bb aviar for drives and approaches. Overlap, oh well.


Stego x1
Superhero x1

Z Wasp x1
Z Comet x1

Gstar gazelle - better leopard
Cfr glo gazelle - better gstar teebird
Double eagle stamp champ gazelle - better beefy champ teebird.

H1 x1

1.1 sof, seasoned
1.2 solf, beat
1.4 qolf, fresh

G line pd2, main distance driver
Ppd2, overstable
Spd2 or cpd2, big beef.

And that's all she wrote.

Not much has changed, really, except the champ and star bb aviars aren't getting the throw time I thought they would. Kc pro is thrown every time. I'm not afraid to bang up putters, I guess.

3x kc for putting and driving/approach.

Stego

Superhero

Wasp/comet

Gazelle x3

SOLF x2 - one fresh for flat rips and one beat up for hyzerflips and turnovers.

H1

Ppd2 x3. No gstar.

Is this a product of the courses you're playing, whereas on other courses you might use the BB Aviars more? (That's the case for me and my BB Aviar...)
