Would be great if the AviarX3 works well both FH & BH so I can condense & make my choices simpler.
It should work well in both of those roles for you. I use it both BH and FH for everything ~250 and in.

Couldn't wait for my Champion AviarX3 to arrive so I picked up a Star from PIAS on my way home today. Got about an hour with it on my local course. I really am enjoying it so far. It definitely is something that I can use equally FH & BH. I was hitting really long & accurate FH's with it in the woods. I've never thrown a disc on a FH flat that would just hold that dead straight line for 250' & land flat.

It really reminded me of a slower seasoned Zone. I never got too comfortable with the Zone's speed but the AviarX3 was really easy to learn. It's a shame my forearm has been so sore lately so I can't really keep testing it. Maybe in a few more weeks I can really lay into it but so far it seems like a winner.

Sometimes that extra speed on the Zone does make me a little wary. The extra sleekness allows the Zone to sub as a short, OS mid, but can exacerbate the pucker factor on touchy upshots or fast greens.

I have been waffling between bagging a Z Zone + a JB Zone, versus an AX3 + a mortar or other OS mid.

I'm looking at a BuzzzOS / AviarX3 setup for slow OS. I like having that Gap in speed to really help make my decisions easier.

I do exactly the same. The Buzzz OS bookends my rocs and the AviarX3 bookends my KC Aviars.

I landed on a Caiman in that role. Loving the combo right now.

I've thrown one in the newer champ plastic. Felt great.

Anyone working with the XT AviarX3? Are they flat, puddle topped, or domey?

I haven't held one but I think it's probably puddle. I had an XT Aviar3 that was puddle & would assume the same for the AX3.

They have a little dome to them. I have one that has a pop top.
