No I haven't, but I did get a 177g Sonic the other day and I really like it a lot.

Who makes the OMEGA?

I have had a couple, and they never really worked for me. I won a "Discraft Banger GT" at my last tournament, and I am really starting to like it. I never would have bought one, but I am glad I got it. If you get a chance try one.

The omega ss used to be my main putter.<until I found out about the blowfly>. It's a very straight putter, and since it is soft you don't get the "skip" when you hit the ground, or a tree. It pretty much grabs and sticks after it hits, which for hilly courses it is great. It is made by Millenium, which used to be a side company of Innova, but heard recently that they had broken off. I still carry an Omega in my bag, mostly in case of windy conditions <blowflys are NOT good in heavy wind>.

FYI - Millennium Omega = Innova small-bead Aviar

The Aviar that we all know as the "Aviar Driver" has a large bead, and the Aviar now known as the "Putt and Approach" has no bead...in between those two is the "small-bead" Aviar. Millennium has always used the small-bead mold for the Omega...Innova stopped making the small-bead for a long time, but Millennium kept producing it. You'll occasionally come across an old DX Aviar that has a small bead, but you have to look closely to tell the difference between it and a no-bead. Innova recently (sometime within the last few years) started producing the small-bead Aviar again under the title "Classic Aviar"....all of which have the Aviar "grid" stamp and are produced in a very stiff blend of DX plastic (which is very similar to the OOP "Omega Driver").

I had been using the BlowFly until recently, had some amazing shots with it. Many shots that would not have went in w/ any other putter.
My son had a SS Omega and I really like the way I could just snap it right into the chains, I still carry the BlowFly in the bag for shots that have fast greens or might have a tendency to roll w/ any other disc.

I've been using a Birdie for those hilly greens. My Aviars tend to land and flip up on an edge to roll down the hill when I miss. I don't really care for how the Birdie feels or throws. Now that I have heard a friend of mine using a Blowfly and the stuff I am reading here maybe I ought to get one for my bag. Hmmmm....

I've got one the Aviar P&A mentioned above. I almost bought an omega, but after I looked at it for a minute it seemed awfully familiar. Now I know why. I like the Aviar/ Omega style putters for approach shots, but I tend to make a lot more putts with my Birdie. It just seems to fly a little more consistent for me.

Omega Supersoft has been my putter of choice for several months now. I'm pretty happy with it.
