Review: I'm still pretty new to discgolf, as such I still make common mistakes with my release and form. I thought that might be an issue when I decided to pick up an Avenger, but I was pleasantly suprised when that turned out not to be the case. Even if I don't get the best release, it still just glides forever. I think I added about 60+ feet to my drives with this disc. But besides that, I feel it has the right amount of stability to be effective and versatile, while not locking itself into some specific or otherwise limited "niche". (That last statement is probably personal preference though)

Anyway, the point is, this was the first disc I was able to bomb AND predict the line it would take, and also give a little forgiveness every now and then on a bad toss. I like it quite a bit. I'm also glad I bought it in Elite Z too, that stuff is indestructible.

Review: Beautiful disc. I trew the Z Crush as my big D driver for 2 years up until I got ahold of one of these. The X plastic versions of these were good at first until you hit a tree or 2, then they're just another roller/turnover disc. The slight bump in stability in the Z plastic makes this disc just rock. Almost no fear of turning over too far, not much fade once broken in and you can still flip it flat on a long hyzer. Love it.

Review: I fell in love with the pro wraith a few months back. i loved the speed it could handle, and even after breaking it in a little, it hit real nice flex shots. but after continuous use (in the woods) i cant do anything but turn it over, so i picked up an avenger at a tourny. the thing is a hog. it can handle high speeds real well, and for those 275'+ slight hyzer shots, this disc is perfect!

Review: the silver mirror stamps tend to fly less stable than the blue and white ones. great disc to complement my other weapon of choice, the surge

Review: The Z avenger is most diffently alittle overstable. It will fly straight for most big arms (unless thrown poorly) and fade very predictable. Although X avengers are much longer, the Z avenger is more accurate. I throw my Z avenger for drives where I dont need the distance of an X avenger, but a fairway driver wouldnt reach. They break in very well (it takes a long time), they loose their fade, and are longer (still not as long as a new or used x avegnger) without getting flippy in the least respect. I accually carry two, a new 173 for more fade and headwinds, and a broke in 170 for lighter headwinds, less fade.

Review: The z avenger is a much more overstable version of the x. I'm surprised big arms haven't embraced this disc. I haven't noticed much fade on mine with great accuracy. Perhaps I don't have a big enough arm, but the x goes farther for me.

Review: After falling in love with the Elite X Avengers, I thought it only natural to flow to the Z Avenger. With a 172 X Avenger, I'd give it like 5-10 degrees of hyzer on a full throw and it'd snap up to level and just go forever. That is with a 1.6 stability, and a few trees of adjustment. The Z Avengers, with a 1.8 stability rating, are definately more beastly. This has replaced my retired 169 Crush as my 'not gonna turn it over' disc. I'm not a big arm, occasionally getting it out to 400 feet, but usually in the 280-300 foot controlled D range. The Z Avenger has the same resistance to flipping as a Z Crush, but fades a little less and definately glides further. On similar throws, my 168 Z Crush and My 169 Z Avenger both came out of the hand level, flew straight, then faded left. With about 15 feet of air(I throw low, used to playing in high wind), the crush got 3-5 feet more left fade and about 15 feet less distance. I could only get these out there about 350 feet, but like I said, I'm not a big arm. I still carry a 168 X Avenger for when I need to try to throw 400 feet, but if it's in the 300-400 foot range, I'm gonna go with the Z Avenger because I know I can put it out a little right and just rip it without turning it over.
