Bumping because I've read a lot about this plastic and have been thinking about making the switch back to Challengers. Maybe the Roach would be worth a shot coming from Aviars as well? APX? My main question is are the Challengers coming out puddle topped at all? I'm trying to get that old big Pro D Challenger stamp type puddle top. You know what I'm talking about.

I know what you're talking about. My JB Challengers have not become puddle-tops yet...

If you have some connections you could hunt down Rubber Blend Challengers. I got 4 and can tell they'll puddle. Rubber Blend is the same material as Jawbreaker, just all white and firm. There was a GMC run that had colors. Anyway the regular jawbreakers have more dome in them than the Rubber Blends which mine are flatter.

They are different than jawbreaker. The rubber blends actually have small pieces of rubber blended in to the plastic. They are highly textured and super grippy. I have about 10 of the the original run of rubber blend challengers if anyone is interested. it was a test run of the original jawbreaker but they since they all came out puddle top, they removed the rubber pieces for the production runs of jawbreaker.

In store they felt the same to me. The rubber blend has larger pieces it seemed. Both were grippy and a little oily initially.

Were the original run the "Boxer" ones or the Doss runs? What are you looking for? Cash or trade? Why are you passing on them?

I bought a stack of JawBreaker Challengers when they first came out. No puddle topping.

Have you felt the Roach? The wing isn't straight like the Aviar. It's convex. It feels like a worn Voodoo (or a reeeaally worn Wizard).

Neither. They were barstamped. Unfortunately not looking for trades but I'd be willing to sell some

For some reason I don't think my PMs are going through.

How much?
