I use DX classic pna or McPro aviars, swirly s-p2's, and champ san marino rhynos in standard and XG champ. Also found a sanny star aviar for a premium turnover disc at PIAS this weekend. Flies like a beat classic pna but lasts forever.

Interesting how the Aviar3 performs so differently. For me, I carry a Star Aviar3 because I can throw it forehand more consistently. I tried testing it out on windy days whenever I had the chance and it flew like a fresh Classic Aviar does in calm conditions (for context, out to about 240 feet, with a longest throw of about 260 feet.) Also there are some holes at various local courses where it seems to be the perfect disc to throw off the tee since it won't glide too far (into water or other trouble.) It is nice to be able to walk to the tee and know which disc to throw.

My Champ Rhynos have some dome, but not too much (nowhere near a Foxbat or some such).

I thought the Star Aviar3 would work well with my sidearm....it didn't. To be fair, my sidearm form isn't the cleanest. The Aviar3 showed some turn in a headwind thrown forehand. I liked it backhand but I'll be sticking with S-P2s. I might have to tryout a Pig or Tank for my sidearm upshots. I don't like flicking discs with beads. Until I find the right sidearm putter I'll be flicking a Mortar.

What plastic for the aviar p and a and the rhynos?
I carry a DX P&A for most putts, DX San Marino small bead for upshots and jump putts, old glass top Champ Rhyno for stable throws with full power and most drive/approach shots are with an R-pro Rhyno. I have a few old Pros but found a great run of R-pro a few months back. Love that disc. The setup feels very simple yet every shot is covered for me.

still rocking the aviar3 duo but my dx gets most of the air time,the s line gets used occasionally but sometimes is too stable for the shot. ive put a beating on my dx but it has only gotten straighter while still retaining some LSS. i was wanting a luster but theyve been too pricey for me so im most likely going to switch out the s av3 when the p3x comes out!

The Discraft Zone is totally the sidearm putter you're looking for!

I bought a star aviar3 for drives and approaches because my DX was beating in quite quick. I love the blend of star I have it's a blue max weight. I putt with DX AV3, but has anyone tried putting with the star? The moment these come out in a fairly stiff pro I'll be set as it sits in my hand so great and when I miss I know it's all me. I've even begun forehanding to moderate success too. Count me as a fanboi for the disc.

I use my Star Aviar3 for drives and approaches, but on occasion I've putted with it if I happen to have it in my hand. Also threw a couple of 'practice' putts into headwinds to see how it would do (and it did fine). If one likes the grip, then one should be able to putt with an Aviar3 after getting in the proper amount of practice. I fully agree that a Pro Aviar3 would be awesome for putting.
