The Colt came out as a prototype. Awesome disc... Then Innova went and ruined it.

I think Horsman meant the tooling. There is a little embossed "Prototype" under the weight just like the new embossing on Destroyers. Proto Colts had special stamps but no embossing.

I tried the AX3 A3 P3X Pig and Zone side by side today, The zone is by far the most overstable of the bunch.. The AX3 flew very similar to my blizz champ pig, slightly more stable than the P3X and quite a bit more stable than the A3.. I like the puddle top of the AX3 and the plastic is grippier and softer than the A3 and P3X but not too soft like Gstar... it may be replacing the pig.. I have to try them back to back on forehand more to see which one I'll be using but so far I dig the AX3. Hope this helps someone.. haha

I recently acquired a blizz champ pig and have been loving it. Does the Aviar x3 have the same dumpy vertical fade as the pig or is it more sweeping?

Question to the aviarx3 lovers:

Are you guys bagging the aviarx3, a straighter throwing putter AND an aviar3, or just the aviarx3 and the straighter putter?

Also, how's its overstability and glide?

I'm buying one today, but just want to know what I'm getting into

After two rounds with the AviarX3, it's staying in my bag for now. I've been liking it for sidearm approach shots (100' & under). I haven't tried flicking it farther than that yet. It seems like it will be able to handle some power. It feels comfortable in my forehand grip. I like the puddle top. I actually was throwing it more backhand than sidearm. It's more overstable than my S-Line P2. It worked well on short drives & upshots. I'm looking forward to throwing it more. I hope the regular production AviarX3s come out the same as these "prototype" embossed ones. This is the only new mold that Innova has put out in the last couple years that I really like.

Right now I bagging an aviarx3, Star aviar3, and a beat dx aviar3 and I'm really liking the combo. They glide pretty well. Definitely not a brick out of the hand, but still a predictable strong fading finish
