Hmmm, having second thoughts now about the Wizard/Aviar debate...
I had a showdown tonight:
175g 10x KC Pro Aviar
175g Star Aviar
174g S Firm Wizard
175g E Wizard
I don't have a ton of room in the yard, so I was just standing and throwing. First surprise, I can throw 250 or so just standing. That was cool. Second surprise, they all seemed to go pretty much the same distance.
I felt I had the most control with the KC Aviar and the E WIzard. The Star Aviar has some great glide but was only good on a big hyzer or a big anhyzer -- distance was kind of lacking on a straight flat throw. The S Firm Wizard was very frustrating for me, because with some hyzer it would go forever on a hyzer line, but throwing flat or with very slight hyzer it would trail off right -- not turn over, just track right. I just couldn't get the right angle for a flat throw at all. It's somewhat beat up, but with S plastic, I didn't think it would change that much. I figure I must be doing something wrong, but throwing it alongside 3 other discs my form was good. E Wizard was almost identical to the 10x KC Aviar, but I prefer the stiffness of the Aviar. I think I may be sticking with the KC for now, but I really would like to figure out the Wizard. Throwing it by itself, I thought it superior, but when field tested head-to-head, I have to pull for the 10x KC. I have 3 of them, so hopefully those will last me a couple years before I can no longer find them or they cost like $100.
That was a quick 24 hour flip-flop, but the head to head testing sealed the deal.
