Step 1: Choose the Right Weight
One of the first things to consider when before buying yours is the weight of the disc. Innova offers the Aviar in a range of weights, from lighter to heavier, so it’s important to choose the right one for you. Lighter weights are generally better for beginners, as they’re easier to control and throw. Heavier weights are better for experienced players who want more stability in their putts.
Step 2: Get the Right Plastic
Innova offers the Aviar in several different types of plastic (see below), each with its own unique feel and characteristics. Some plastics are more overstable, while others are more understable. It’s important to choose the plastic that feels the most comfortable to you and fits your playing style. (More on plastics in the below section)
Step 3: Practice Your Putting Motion
Once you have the right weight and plastic, it’s time to practice your putting motion. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, and focus on keeping your body relaxed and your arm straight as you make your putt. Experiment with different arm motions and speeds until you find the one that works best for you.
Step 4: Try Different Shots Types
Try practicing short, medium, and long putts, as well as approach shots and upshots. As you get more comfortable with the Aviar, you can start to experiment with different shot types and see what works best for you.
Step 5: Practice, Practice, Practice!
The key to using this disc effortlessly is practice. The more you practice with this disc, the better you’ll get at controlling its flight and making accurate shots. So make sure to get out to your local disc golf course and put in some time with your Aviar. If you can’t play regularly on a course, hit the park ,a beach, or some woodlands. Woodland will certainly help you to focus a lot more on straight shots, or to work nice s-bends around those trees. This is a more advanced technique and you could certainly mash up your Aviar with constant tree collisions, so if you don’t know how to bend your disc’s flight hang off until later!
