This thread keeps having me load up a cart of AvengerSS on an online retailer and then realize I don’t need more discs so I close the page. I get closer to the check out each time.

Anybody able to give a description of how they fly in the available plastics?

I only throw the Avenger SS in Z (bag 2, one flat and one domed), so for me on a hyzer flip they'll turn a bit then just go straight with a light fade and skip at the end. Avenger and Avenger SS have become my control drivers for tight tunnel shots and low ceiling shots, big over the top anhyzer routes and rollers.

My Avenger SS in metallic purple Titanium plastic is something special; I bag it everytime. Bought it three months after I had started with DG (so about two years ago), it was my second driver and the first one I could control. Now, as it is quite beaten in, it starts to be really flippy but it flies like no other disc in my bag - if I need to go straight for 150-180 ft, then hardly left and then straight again for another 100 ft with soft landing, I throw my Avenger SS in deep FH hyzerflip-to-turnover S-shot. Still too flippy for FH rollers IMHO, but very good for BH rollers. Even if I throw it cleanly in steep hyzer BH, it flips and turns quite a bit before some mild fade. I would rate my beat-in Ti A-SS 10 5 -4 1.

I have 3 Avenger SS in my bag, and they all fly very different. .

I have one puddle top Glow Z that goes straight and then have a small fade at the end
A flat ESP that just goes straight and lands flat
And one of the new Paul 5xESP thats super Domey and very US ( looks and feels more like a Domey HEAT )

This big "range" from my Avenger SS is what made me bag it over the HEAT

Now other then a plastic changing a disc, I would not go for a Discraft mold due to the variation in the plastic. Discraft discs are supposed to be one of the most consistent discs on the market and if you can't get that from a Discraft mold, I will tend to pass on a disc. I get that Discraft like 90% of the companies have the plastic change from run to run or how an individual disc cools but the shape and flight from a Discraft disc should be the same run after run.

I have a few hundred discs. . and to even find two of the same mould and plastic that flies the same are much harder than it should be..

Can΄t even count the times i bought a disc that i really liked. . to then buy some more and then fly totaly different than that first one

Well much closer then what you described the ESP Avenger SS to fly like. The problems with both the Avanger and SS are why I do not bag the SS mold, too much variation in a single plastic.

I have one Avenger SS. It flies like my X Avengers with less glide. I assume it's beefy for an SS. Not a big fan.

Still bummed the regular Avenger went OOP.

It's one of the best starting discs

Great backhand or forehand

Not too over stable very workable

Can also roll

Easy one disc round choice

First few years I played I mostly had Innova because very few retailers around here (mid to late 2000's) had anything else then but once some Discraft stuff started popping up I grabbed one in ESP FLX, really great driver if your not someone with a huge arm. Liked the feel of them better than the Roadrunner or Beast which is what I had used before, just feels natural in the hand when going for a big hyzerflip and also good if your trying to incorporate a backhand roller into your game.
