I have a couple of Star Aviar P&As from my early days in DG. Last October when I threw all pink discs for "Throw Pink" month, I used the pink Star Aviar P&A as a substitute for the P2 (I now have a pink Champ Glow P2). The Star Aviar P&A is less overstable than the P2, but performed pretty well for me during that month as an upshot disc.

I would be surprised if Paul McBeth would bag a Star Aviar P&A; I'd think he'd go back to the P2. He may also still have the Aviar3 in his bag, and all this speculation is just that...

Played a couple of rounds with an Aviar3 today. I don't think it will kick Zones or P-2s out of my bag. Stability seems right between them and the DX that I have had decent glide. I might like one in pro plastic for a driving putter.

How is the Aviar3 for sidearm throws? My current driving putters are an S-P2 & a XT Nova. I can't really flick them besides for short get out of trouble shots. I'd like a beadless putter I can flick for approach shots & short drives off the tee. I'm going to pick up a Star Aviar3 this weekend. I threw my friends Star Aviar3 a few times. I didn't really get in enough throws with it to see if I'd like it for flicks.

When I first picked up a Star Aviar3, one of the first things I tried was throwing it FH. It worked so well for me that I played FH-only rounds for about a month, throwing the Aviar3 on short drives (up to 250-260 feet) and approaches. Even when I didn't throw it cleanly FH, it stabilized and held the line I wanted.

Looks like a regular Star Aviar (P&A)

Yes, it does.

BTW, that is definitely the scrub of Ft. Gordon. Hated training there when I was in ROTC. One of our cadre said that if we ever got into a war, he was going to blow up Ft. Gordon and blame it on the other side.

Update: in commentary of the Worlds, (first round, I think, and don't remember who), they said that Paul McBeth had taken the Aviar3 out of his bag because "it was not stable enough". They also said he might've put it back in, but weren't sure.

I can understand that, though. The Av3 is not going to be mistaken for a Gator any time soon. With McBeth bagging the super-straight Nova, it would make sense if he was looking for a more OS (more Harp-like?) approach disc... but I don't think the Star Aviar P&A would be that disc... oh well, we'll see over time...

I really liked the Aviar3 at first, but found it didn't hold up into the wind as well as I'd like. My Envy's hold up WAY better into the wind, so they went back into the bag. Was a bummer as I really wanted to like the Aviar3.

I like the Av3 and will throw it into a mild headwind. But when the wind is more noticeably beating my face, I reach for the Harp. I bag both, as I throw the Av3 for more distance than I do the Harp. The Av3 kicked both the P2 and Hornet out of my bag...

This is exactly how I felt about the Aviar3. It got where I threw it in a hurry and then would settle nicely, but now I cannot trust it and it is very common for us to get winds from 5-30mph winds. Obviously this thing is not meant to hold up in 20+ mph winds but even at 5-10 it started drifting right on me.

It does hold up in a mild headwind, but it just never seems to want to fade. I threw it in the bag today for a more wooded course and ended up going to a more wide open course after. I needed to throw a very straight shot into the wind and have it fade left. I hit the line perfectly but the Aviar3 never wanted to fade out of the shot and I was left with a 20+ footer.
