Ive noticed this too. Picked up four off MarshallStreet and really little different feel between QOmega4 and CAviars. Nose on the QOmega4 is a little bulkier, but height is fairly close. Compared to my CLine Glow P2s, they dont have as high of a shoulder. Tops are definitely Yeti Aviar puddled.

I feel like this mold might as well just be beadless Yetis. Havent had a chance to toss them yet. But honestly, Im very interested. Plastic feels amazing.

The feel may be similar but my Q Omega4 is noticeably more overstable than my Champ Aviar. The Q Omega4 is a really nice driving putter with a reliable fade, filled a hole in my bag for sure.

Yeah, been throwing mine the past month or so, less stability than the Glow C-Line P2 or Sky God III that I have. I like the QOmega4s versatility & glide, just need to be consistent on release and nose angles. Its not a special blend of champion either, pretty 'standard stock' feeling and took some scrapes pretty quickly (showing some wear after skipping & sliding on concrete a handful of times ).

Compared the QOmega4 to my other premium Aviar-X topped beadless putters, the Glow MF C-Blend Alpaca feels the most similar (less stable as well). Tallest/bulkiest shoulder P2s I have are a Luster C-line and a swirly S-line X-out (Sky God II run). Sky God III is also taller with a bulky shoulder and a puddle top. Psycho C-Line & Glow C-Line have similar shoulder bulk to the QOmega4 but are taller and flat topped. Pink QOmega4 has lower PLH than the Green one I got (throwing the Green).

I havent thrown mine side by side, so only going off memory, but my diamond wizards always felt like they lacked glide. Higher shoulder and none of mine are even close to flat. I only have slightly older runs of diamond wizards so my memory might not mean much now, but they just werent ever the driving putter I wanted. I still think neutron Ions are the best driving wizard out there.
My two Qomega4s are pretty overstable for a putter, but both have the really good glide I was looking for. Very stiff and bulky in hand though. They feel almost identical to my premium alpacas(my alpacas have terrible PLH flashing compared to my QO4). Mine are more flat than puddle topped. Ill have to take them all to a field and compare side by side.

I've been putting with the same d line P2s since early 2016. I wanted to pick up an eventual replacement for them and I like the newer tacky plastic that's come out in the last few years. Was planning on getting a pair of Nexus Firefly since they're P2 with tacky firm plastic.

But of course none of the local shops have them or the new P2 models in stock ( I for the most part dont buy online, I need to feel a disc up especially a putter) . Anyhow local shop pro recommended the Omega4 in ET plastic. Spent a good 2 hours beating them into the chains from short distance yesterday (it was like 20 degrees out, in the snow and windy). Definitely like them a LOT. I can see them replacing my p2 once I get a few thousand putts in on them.

They feel almost identical to a P2, perhaps a miniscule amount shallower (or perhaps just flatter across the top, hard to say), the tacky grippy plastic is an improvement for sure. I noticed that despite the cold they didn't seem to take much damage from the few hundred putts or so I gave them. Similar to my X line P1x that's been beaten to hell yet doesn't really scuff up.

Mine must have been from the same run as yours. Almost KC firm but with the grippy Nexus/XT type plastic.

I think the Omega4 is a better P2 replacement anyway. Most of the Fireflies I've come across have a puddle top, whereas the Omega4 is generally just flat.
