FWIW, the big bead Aviar (what the KC and JK molds are) also comes in DX as CFR discs, and pretty much every one I've gotten my hands on has been pretty stiff. Putters beat in pretty slow as it is, so it will probably still take a while to beat in but not as long as a KC/JK would.

If you want a late-turning flippy thrower out of the box, try a Deputy. They're Streets' favorite disc, but he's Trilogy fanboy, so take that for what it's worth.

I don't know if people aren't throwing them, or if they haven't tried them, but the Prodigy PA-4 is the best flying US putter I have ever thrown. So much so that it is the only non-Discraft produced disc in my bag. I am still on my first Proto stamped one. Late turn, great glide, the whole package, for me.

Just beat your KCs hard. After a while they'll be flippy. Grab a DX to fill that slot in the mean time. I have a couple of Mcpros I pull out in the yard sometimes they have that dead nuts straight flight to late flip. And my main thrower is a PW Wizard took a while to get one flippy. Was worth the wait.

I think KC pro is pretty slow to beat to flippy personally. All the aviars and rocs I have had get to pretty much straight and stay that way for a while. If you really want a flippy KC pro I’d look for used. I’m sure you could pick up a small stack for fairly cheap and have an instant cycle.

Short of that, the best flippy putter off the shelf I have found is a swan. But it doesn’t feel anything like a BB aviar

they probably have a FH. after a while i dont like my kc pros, the bead disapears and you get scared to loose it. also, its so easy to slide in a colt these days. the old school cycle is on its way out

If you throw Rocs and feel the same way about them, thanks for helping this obsolete chucker keep his going without all the hard work.

Getting a KC Pro Aviar beat flippy is a labor of love, basically because that disc will be so sweet for so long before it gets flippy that you will already have a long-term love affair going on with that disc by the time it beats flippy. It takes a lot of rounds of disc golf to get there.

Shameless cycling plug: That's the fun of it, though. People who don't cycle have that instant gratification thing; they don't get that 1/2 the satisfaction of having that perfectly seasoned disc in your bag is the number of disc golf shots that seasoned discs represents. Those are your throws, the disc embodies a lot of the fun we have out there. For me, the feel of a good old beat Roc that I've thrown 1,000's of times before in my hand will always beat the feel of a new disc. If you don't have a disc in your bag you have thrown since forever, you really should.
