Review: I never bothered to try Discraft. Something about the brand always turned me off. However I bought the Avenger just out of curiosity. THIS THING IS AMAZING!!! I am NOT kidding. It flys far and has a great flight. The elite X model flies nearly identical to an Innova Valk. BUY IT. You will not regret it.

Review: Its about time that I review this disc. Avengers have been my distance driver of choice for a while, and I plan on sticking to them for a long time.

They are one of the most versitle Distance drivers on the market today. I carry 2-4 Avengers in the X plastic in any given round. The newer ones are just stable enough to handle some wind, while the less stable ones are great for LONG drives and finish right throws. They are very predictable. I can throw an Innova wraith longer, but nowhere near as consistant or accurate. I will take a 20' shorter drive over a drive 50' off line any day. This driver will stay in my bag a while. I can even see them adding some D to weaker arms once broken in properly. (I still reccomend something slower if you dont have at least 325' of power)

Review: The x avenger has become my go to disc. The lighter versions give me long drives with great glide and accuracy. It seems to go further as it beats up; I tried the z plastic but prefer the x. It is hard to turn over for me. As it does lose stability, I slide it down and add a new one to the bag.

Review: I picked up a first run Avenger the weekend they came out and immediately fell in love with the way it held its line and glided without too much effort. I lost it within a day, but that one day showed me a lot about my form. Upon picking one up now, two plus months later, I am utilizing what I've learned in the months between and I love it even more. The disc glides like a dream, it can anhyzer if you snap it right, it will come out of a hyzer beautifully and stay strong for a while. In the end I think this is the ideal beginner's driver due to its glide, but its combination of glide and stability should put it in the bag for any long armed player as well.

Review: For me, the Avenger and my Z Wildcat fly very similiar. I would say I can throw slightly farther with the wildcat. I think this is because the avenger feels slower coming out of the hand, but the Avenger doesn't fade as much and ends up flying straighter for me. I prefer accuracy over distance so usually I will pick my Avenger over the Wildcat on most golf shots.

Review: I've loved this disc from the 1st time I threw it. It flies straight if thrown flat and will hold its line if thrown anhyzer. I also use it as a big s-curve disc in mild wind conditions. I highly recommend this disc, as I'm going to get another one in a few days.

Review: I picked up an Avenger about 2 weeks back and it almost immediately became my primary driver. If you like the flash or crush you should definatly pick one of these up.

Review: I recently found an Avenger at a nearby course. The first throw i took with it was awesome. This disc is similar to a Crush, but less overstable, with a stability rating of 1.6. This disc also has amazing glide, which will definity lengthen your drives. The Avenger has good consisteny for good throws, but will turn over on occasion. I highly recommend you to try this disc out.
