A very educated guess after seeing his pink AVIAR3 getting pushed around in the tournament where he first used it.

Exactly. The Av3 just didn't fade as expected for Paul, and ended up being right of where he wanted to be. Then he dropped the Av3 and was trying the Star Aviar P&A and then Champ P&A, neither of which will be mistaken for a Harp or Drone. So enter the AX3, which from early reports is more OS than the Av3, etc.

P.S. Side note: I was throwing my pink Av3 today into a not-insignificant wind. Had some great shots with it, but it was dead straight on those throws...

I'm assuming (based on the name) that this is just the AviarX mold without a bead and the "3" top.

Basically a P2 with the "3" treatment.

Not the best shots, but here's a couple profile comparisons I shot with my phone.

AviarX3 - Aviar3

AviarX3 - P3X

AviarX3 - McPro Aviar (Putt and Approach)

AviarX3 - P2

AviarX3 - Zone

That's basically what it is. Very flat and almost puddle topped. I putt with the JK Pro Aviar-X and they're very different discs.

Had a chance to toss mine around a bit today. It's very overstable. Starts hooking up almost immediately. I thought my Rhyno was over-stable, but I can toss that thing a lot further than the AviarX3. It's a great sidearm approach disc, though. Those were the Rhyno's duties, but I think I'm going to try the Aviar out for the time being. Mine also says "Prototype" on the bottom so maybe they'll tweak the mold a bit before the regular release?

It's a touch taller than the Zone, and the rim isn't quite as thick but it's very similar feeling in the hand for sure.

thats what i thought too. i always thought the p2 was the aviar x mold with the spacer as is. i still think this is the aviar3 with a spacer because a p2 with the "3" treatment is still a p2,not necessarily a new mold.


anyone have a p2 to compare this to side by side?
