Hi folks,

I'm looking to buy around 10 used aviars or as many I can get my hands on. Misprints or not tournament/gameplay worthy is fine as long as they are is decent shape. I don't care if they have names on the bottom - no questions asked.

I know I can get new Gateway Wizards on-line for 5 for 30$us.

Any thoughts on switching from an aviar to a wizard as a putter?

Thanks, DJ

I played with a Gateway Wizard and loved it, but I only had one, and when it started to get a little wonky, I couldn't find one to replace it. I liked it because I think it was heavier then 175g - which is the PDGA allowance on this disc - and was awesom in the wind. There aren't that many differences between the Gateway and some kinds of Aviars. I didn't like driving with it though, and I would, and will, play full rounds with just my Aviar.

I don't have any putters to sell - I too hoard all the putters I can get for putting practice. I've boughten large quantities off of Ebay before at good deals (10 for $50US).

Thanks Geoff,

I'll keep checking ebay.

Since you brought up the issue of weight. What is the ideal weight for an aviar to be used an approach and putter? Or simply just as a putter? The ones I have now are all 175. (sticking to my ultimate roots)

I don't really like change so I'll stay away from the wizards for now.

Since I'm on the topic if anyone has any rocs or teebirds I'm looking for those as well.

Thanks
DJ

The club has all those discs available new. And I believe Twirly has a box of misprints at the store.

DJ,

I like the max weight for my putters (175g), and I think that's pretty common. It's all pretty much a personal preference. Stick to what you feel comfotable with, and that's pretty much disc golf.

Being a student again I was trying to avoid any new/expensive discs especially for my purposes. I already have about 100 ultimate discs. Most unfit for games but good as practice discs.

I was posting in the event that people may have one here or there that just collects dust or that they feel isn't up to their standards. I know I have a few discs like that although I usually just give them away or use them to cross the water holes. I'll check with Rob and see what he has in stock.

Once again thank you. -DJ-

Generally, putters are the one model of disc that DGers stockpile, for two main reasons:

1) it saves a lot of time and energy to have a lot of putters while practising

2) an old worn putter behaves about the same as a new one, while this is not the case with other disc models...
