Second photo is better.. as far as I can tell it looks like a blunt top Mortar. Or a flat blunt top micro bead Gator.

It was nice of marshallstreet to take the photos.
Actually no, I realize now that it looks like I was ribbing you. Fact of the matter is, I knew it was a largely useless profile pic from the beginning but didn't initially want to complain lol

Just checked out a few Caimans at a local PIAS.. it’s exactly what I thought it would be. A flat blunt top microbead Mortar (1.1-1.2) I did not get to compare it directly to a Mortar as I did not have one. I do not believe the bottom wing to be longer. I compared them to Gators however and did not see a difference in over all size of disc and wing. Bummer.

I have two mortars one in Star, one in Champion (1.5), and just picked up a FR Star Caiman. They are very similar, the caiman is really flat and has a very small bead. When comparing the profiles, I feel like the Caiman is just a bit lower overall, with the mortar shoulder sitting a bit higher. I haven't thrown them to compare yet, but I anticipate very similar flight, with the caiman perhaps being just a touch faster.

Ordered a few xouts- excited to put my first run frontline mortars in storage if these are nice! Marshall street has great prices on their xouts

I need an assessment please. I am a Gator guy and thought I was going to be a Gator3 guy but the bead on that thing is not feeling great lately. Saw a promo vid for this Caiman and the smooth edge with micro bead looked nice. I like beaded mids and PNA molds. I was dogging the Caiman pretty hard when I heard about it also. But maybe I'll give it a shot or try the Taurus.

Just as I suspected, it's a rat-topped mortar (dunno if any disc had that top before the rat, that's the first disc I saw with the squared off super-flat top)
