When a player reaches elite status, equipment manufacturer’s often produce a signature run of their favorite disc. Some of these players even get a signature mold like the KC Pro and McPro Aviar putters for Ken Climo and Paul McBeth. How do these putters perform for mere mortals?
Innova’s McPro and KC Pro Aviar Notes
“The McPro Aviar was the result of a collaboration between Dave Dunipace and 4x World Champion Paul McBeth. The McPro Aviar has been molded according to McBeth’s wants and needs as an elite touring player. The public now has the opportunity to directly support Paul McBeth and his touring efforts in 2015. Paul will receive a substantial portion of every McPro Aviar sold.”
“The KC (Ken Climo) Pro Aviar is made from the Aviar driver mold in a firm blend of Pro-line plastic for players who prefer a stiffer disc. The preferred model of top pro players.”
Available plastics: KC Pro or McPro
Flight Rating: 2 speed, 3 glide, 0 turn, 2 fade
McPro and KC Pro Aviar Initial Reactions
Both the KC Pro and McPro are shaped very similarly to an Aviar (thus the name). The KC Pro adds a bead to the rim but otherwise these are very similar putters. I feel like the MC Pro has a slightly deeper rim. The plastic for both is very firm, making them a great choice for push putting. Because these discs are extremely similar, we’ll review them together.

MCPro and KC Pro Aviar Upshots
These are both much more stable than the regular Aviar, offering no turn before some significant fade. I actually like the McPro a lot as an approach disc. It is pretty consistent and flies very well in windy conditions. The fade keeps the putter from gliding too far away if you miss. Anhyzers flex out very nicely and a hyzer will cut left pretty quickly. In this regard, the McPro and KC Pro are similar to the Gateway Wizard.
MCPro and KC Pro Aviar Final Verdict
Both the McPro and KC Pro Aviars are essentially a more overstable Aviar with a very firm plastic. I don’t carry this anymore because of the occasional grip loss I experience with the plastic and, just as mentioned in my Aviar review, the rim is a little too deep for me. In the overstable putter category, I still prefer a Wizard. Either putter is worth a try if you are investigating the overstable putter category while looking for a push putt capable disc.
