200-225, Challenger, Comet, Buzz-SS would all depend on the shot.

I look at my Equalizer every day and it doesn't do a dang thing...O...Wait..I gotta use it?...that's my problem. My Equalizer has taken me from 275 to about 350 over the winter...can't wait to have more days like today to get out and just throw hard without worrying about my hands freezing. I'll be over 400 real soon if I continue to give 10-15mins a day to the Equalizer...and over 450 when I learn how to get more spin on my discs.

Fred likes KC's. I prefer DX P&A's & stiff 4x JKs. Never cared much for the champion. The DX P&A's are for sure the straightest right off the shelf.

Wait, this is a trick question. Matt throws a red 1st run Star Excaliber overhand for this shot. He is just messing with us so he can say we are all wrong.

I just looked at the Innova website and there are many aviars listed.

I would like to hear more discussion about the various kinds.  I have a soft P&A and a stiffer "classic: aviar

I am thinking of pick up either a KC  or a JK version, any preferences there?

That depends on your preference. KC aviars are harder plastic than just about every other blend out there. The JK version is a much softer plastic blend.

Then if you wanted to get deep into it you would have to talk about the different runs of KC and JK plastics. A 10x KC is different than the 12x blend, the 3x JKs are different than a 4x, there are all different variations inside the same model.

Thats why a 10x roc goes for a lot of money on ebay. People liked that blend of plastic and are willing to pay big money for them.

Classic Roc, 2 or 3 of them @ all times in the bag. The grip and shallow rim means super-crisp and clean release points for me! I feel over-paid when i throw this disc.....Lawrence

Just caught this- 11x KC plastic is the bees knees. 8x and 9x KCs are the most saught after and the 12x KCs are  quite crappy.

Straight shooters- the Aviar for shorter distance( 11x KC)<200 ft. For 250+ it is the Roc, the best disc ever made! (For all of you Buzzheads out there it is virtually the same disc as the Roc. Discraft ripped off the Innova mold of a flat top Roc for the Buzz)

Not true. The Roc and the Buzz are so different.

If anything the Roc is more similar to a Drone. In shape that is, not flight characteristics.

I disagree, the two discs are eerily similar. They Buzz was made to compete with the Roc. Now there arent many discs that fly the same even between molds, so no any ROC mold is not going to fly like a Buzz, but as far as the shape/how they are made. They are pretty close to identical!

Yes, the ROC is awsome! Oh, and so is it's Discraft copy (exactly the same mold, IMNSHO. The WASP became the Buzz. Don't sell the original short Topher, you should take that stack to a field and find out how good the ROC is.
