got to throw mine for a round today...I must say I'm very impressed. Better grip than my D challengers without being floppy like the elite X. Better glide than challengers also, and less LSS fall off at the end of my putts...I was getting good consistent release with them the whole round. Will definitely give them more time in the bag. As of right now I see no reason not to use them. :mrgreen:

Remind me to not choose the free shipping option in the future! My Yeti's won't be here until tomorrow and I pre-ordered as soon as I could. Damn this need for instant gratification.

yep Booter described about all of them. Pretty much all the heavy weights are red and then a few orange. Most 170s are yellow and some white. I think we only had two baby blue's out of the 50+ we sold at the store this weekend. expect red/orange/yellow at most places.

also, I hope mine break in like the testers that Yeti is putting with, they are sooooo nice

Yep I guess Iowa is about 2 million miles further away :(

Anticipation. I am getting out today to play and wish I had them. Wouldn't be surprised to see my DGR Rocs get here today or tomorrow as well, so much closer to GGGT.

ok so I finally got in a full round with the Yeti Pro Aviar. I had one for driving and one for putting. This was the first time I got to drive with one on the course, rather than the field and boy was I impressed. The grip really pays off which honestly outweighs the slight loss of stability compared to a KC Pro. I didn't expect myself to enjoy driving them so much because I really prefer to drive with aviars that have an even/high dome. I had a tailwind on hole 1 which is about 290 with a large dropoff(hilltop) 30ft behind and 15ft to the right. I normally throw a KC Pro on a nose up hyzer and settle within 10-20ft, but today the Yeti went way past that. I didn't expect it to drive so far on a flat throw, and the wind most likely played a part but this went about 350ft and would have gone further off the hill but it crashed into some reeds that are on the edge of the hill to stop discs. Next shot is a 200ft spike hyzer downhill, and I parked it with the yeti. I was sold pretty quickly that I could finally drop the slick KC's for something with a lot more grip.

Nice straight driver, definitely not as stable as KC. Curious to see how it holds up over the next few months. I will probably pick up some other colors and use them as my drivers so that I don't ruin my putting putters
