Hey guys and gals I was wondering what would be the softest beadless aviar I can order brand new? I don't wants the crap R-pro plastic. I'm a big fan of the Omega SS but there new one's are cheap, I think they are using the R-pro plastic now.... So i pulled out and old aviar with the 96 worlds stamp on it. I would like to have a couple more soft aviars now, and looking for something I can easily replace.

I don't know too much about different Aviars, but I would check out SSS Gateway Warlocks.  The SSS plastic is not very flexable like the R-Pro is, but is sure is grippy.

Is there a SOFT and BEADLESS Aviar out there? For soft, I touched a Aviar Driver in Star Plastic, Very Soft,  but it was Big Bead. I also saw a limited # of Small Bead (Early 2000's) Aviar P&A's at discgolfvalues.com for $7.95, but they say they are Very Stiff. Heres a link:





Yeah I really like the SS Magics too, but I couldn't find there plastic to be consistent enough for me. I would get one roll up in a ball then the next would be stiff. They may be better now, I just gave up on them.
Yea I just can't putt with a stiff putter, It doesn't have to be super flexible but enough to where my thumb can press into the top plate a little
Star Aviars are pretty soft. Sirius Omegas are soft too. What weight? Here in Japan we are forced to throw 159.9 max. Hero Disc Japan sells 159 Aviar P&As that are soft and feel alot like the old Innova Hands putters...

I'm not a picky play on weight, The Aviar I working with right now is a 164g I think. I have used 175g with the Omega's, and one 150g Omega for woods play.


I don't think I would have an Issue with a small bead, just not those big bead things. Don't feel right in the hand. Also I went threw the stack and found a JK Aviar and it felt good in the hand, are all these soft or do they have different runs too?

I only putt with Aviar P&As since i started playing years back. I do know that the JKs have a following though. The Star Aviar P&As are pretty soft . You can definetly sink a thumb into it and you'll always be able to get them with the same soft feel. I agree with you that the New Omega SS feel cheap. Its like a mix of R=pro plastic. 
I am a big fan of the JK Aviar , if you can afford it the 3x JK has a great soft gripy feel. The 4x and 5x are stiffer. The 5x will get a little softer than the 4x will.
JK Pro Aviar-x is the softest you'll find w/o getting some sort of R-Pro.
I want to know when they're going to make DX ADs in production!  Let me know if anybody has any or where to get more.
check out the discmania p1 putter, avair p&a mold soft dx plastic might be what your looking for. Aren't the new jJKs r pro also?
