Beadless Gators? Big Jerm stamp? Sounds cooler than cool should be allowed to be. So what are the plastics like?

Recon-> champ(same exact plastic)
Frontline->star(same exact plastic)
Frontline x-> flexible star(not gstar, just softer star. Frontline x plastic predates gstar plastic)

Yeah Frontline-X is pretty unique. Not sure if these new runs will be closer to G Star or not. Hopefully not...I like G Star but that Frontline-X is a very cool blend.

So are Mortars less stable than Beaded Gators? I would assume so, but to what degree? Also, how do the plastics affect the stability and how flat/domey do each type of plastic usually come out?

I haven't thrown a recent mortar, but I had a domey recon one that was before they started flat topping them and it was every bit as beefy as a beaded gator. That might have been a fluke to the first batch though.

Every first run Mortar I've seen has been domey. Every second run (1.2) I've seen are flat. I currently have two Recon & two Frontline-X Mortars. All my Mortars are 1.2. The first run Recons seem to be closer to Champion plastic than the 1.2s. The 1.2s seem to be more gummy. I really like the Mortar. It kicked flat topped Champion Gators right out of my bag. They have more glide than Gators but are still overstable enough I don't miss the Gator. It pairs well with my Roc cycle. I hope this mold gains popularity. I want them to be easier for me to get my hands on.

I don't throw them regularly, but in my experience with both runs, they start out just as overstable as a Gator. They may have a slight bit more glide, but they are still pretty brick-like in flight. The biggest difference I would say is flight pattern beat-in. They wear in much quicker than your standard Gator, though never becoming flippy (at least I never beat one into that state) nor glidey. They are more like a max weight DX Gator in that regard.
