Aviar Driver or Aviar Putt and Approach
« on: April 06, 2009, 11:12:27 AM »
Hello:

I picked up a Star Aviar over the weekend at the Capital City Classic as part of my players package.  It was an LS Discs stamped Aviar.  The white sticker on the bottom just says "Star Aviar" so can I safely assume this is an Aviar Driver and not a Putt & Approach?

What's the difference in the Aviar Driver and the Putt & Approach?  Seems like this Aviar has a little more dome than the standard Putt & Approach disc I've seen in the past.

Just curious,

--Tom

The Aviar driver is going to have a big bead on the rim. A putt & approach has no bead.

if it doesn't say it is an aviar driver then i would assume it is the p&a. they do exist in star without being the driver

Actually, the KC and JK Aviar are also BBs.  They make some Glow BBs (normally tournament or club stamped though).  The only small bead Aviar available is through Millennium in the form of the Omega SS.

Cooper is correct about Star though.  There's a beadless Star Aviar labeled "Aviar" and a BB Aviar labeled "Aviar Driver."  Maybe one of the folks at DGW could look on the back of a Star BB, but I bet it's labeled as *AD.
