Millennium has the omega3, which is literally an aviar3 with a bead.

Yes they do. I have not tried nor held a P3X, but the reviewers at Infinite Discs say it's essentially an Aviar3 with a bead, and in reading the reviews there, it sounds like it flies like an Aviar3: not as overstable as originally expected.

Can someone give some insight on the difference between Aviar3 & AviarX3 compared to Roc3 & RocX3?
I found the RocX3 to both feel better in the hand and be more overstable than the regular Roc3, but ultimately felt I didn't need that extra stability so sticking with Roc3s for now. Is the difference between the Aviars similar to the difference between the Rocs?

Roc3 and RocX3 feel similar in the hand. The RocX3 is not as overstable as I expected it to be, though it's more reliably overstable in the fade than the straight-shooting Roc3. The RocX3 did not replace my Hornet as my reliably overstable mid.

The AviarX3 is much more comfortable in the hand for me than the Aviar3. The AviarX3 is also an unmistakably overstable disc, very much like the Harp, while the Aviar3 is not all that OS at all. I'm bagging the AviarX3 right now.

So I'd say there is MORE difference in the Av3/AvX3 than the Roc3/RocX3.

I saw the rim depth was abit big on the avx3. How does it feel in ur hand for a flick grip?

Also love that it has the harp stability!

I have not attempted a forehand flick with the AvX3. And be advised that on the rare times I throw flicks, it's usually with a Panther for approaches and a TL/TL3 for longer forehands. I have thrown some flicks with my (BT Hard) Harp.

When I read your post to which I'm replying now, I went and got my AvX3 disc and held it in my forehand grip. It feels okay to me, though the Harp feels just a bit more comfortable.

Today I made a point to forehand flick a few shots with my AviarX3. Keep in mind that my forehand will not be mistaken for Nate Sexton's , but I had some good forehand approach shots with the AvX3, and I'm going to work with it some more and see if I can develop a good flick shot.

Update: Star AviarX3s are available at DiscGolfCenter. As of this posting, Infinite did not have them yet, but might soon.
