Question Aviar Plastic

What is the best type of plastic to get the Aviar in? I'm curious to see which one I should buy... I want it to be more of a stiffer plastic... I'd like to get my hands on a McPro but I'm not paying $30 for one... So I'm curious to see what other people like for this!

I'm going to assume you mean the beadless Aviar P&A. DX tends to be middle of the road in stiffness.
For a cheap and readily available alternative I suggest going with the Soft Warlock. Virtually the same disc as the McPro Aviar and much cheaper.

I tend to agree with this. At least give it a shot.

Otherwise you're stuck hunting mcpro. It's my understanding that they don't make pna aviar in a stiffer plastic other than mcpro. Kc pro aviar, my main putter, is a different disc than the mcpro. It is beaded. The warlock is the next closest thing to an aviar and you can find gateway soft plastic that is extremely durable and stiff as far as "baseline" goes.

Yeah it depends on which model of Aviar you want. McPro Aviars are the Aviar P&A model (beadless). They are available in a lot of plastics (DX, XT, Champ, Star, etc.) so you've got plenty of choices there.

If you don't mind a bead, you can get either a KC Pro or a Yeti Pro Aviar, both of which will be a little stiffer and slower wearing than DX. KC Pro plastic is very similar to McPro while Yeti Pro is more similar to XT. They are both the big bead Aviar mold though, which is different than the Aviar P&A mold. The Yeti is a slightly puddle topped version which has a shallower feel in the hand because of the sunken top. The JK Aviar is also a big bead Aviar, but it is a softer, floppier plastic so you're probably not interested in one of those. The Aviar Driver is also a big bead Aviar but in Star/GStar Plastic.

Then there's the Millennium Omega, which I believe is the Aviar small bead mold (someone will correct me on this I'm sure). I'm not sure of the plastic stiffness on these though because I've never tried one. And there's the Aviar Classic mold (only available in DX) which is once again slightly different but I've never used one so I couldn't tell you in what ways.

the McPro Aviar is the perfect answer... unfortunately they just aren't making them in production numbers.

Ergo, it's all a compromise with Innova and the Aviars. If you want the stiffness of KC Pro (next to McPro in stiffness, IMHO), you have to accept a bead.

if you don't want a bead, then I suggest the Champion Aviar P&A. Mine is pretty stiff relative to the softer plastics, and it's a decent putter... and won't beat in after one hit onto trees or chains.

I haven't felt the XT Aviars. The XT Rocs and Whales were medium stiff. Definitely not as stiff as McPro/KC Pro. Similar to DX (but not the really stiff DX, just the normal stuff). Mainly, XT seems a bit tackier like Yeti Pro. I'm inclined to think Yeti Pro is slightly stiffer though. XT does have a tendency to warp if you throw it into trees much. I think it would be just fine for putting and upshots though because it doesn't dent/nick quite as easily as DX.

DX is fine for putters. If you only putt with a DX aviar they will last forever. If you throw it It will break in faster but it's really not that bad. Its only the higher speed stuff that breaks in quickly in DX.

Do they still make the grid stamp classic aviars? Those are usually KC stiffness.
