My Champ Caiman is a bit more overstable than Star Caiman and has less glide. Both with tiny domes.

Stopped by a PIAS after work & fondled the inventory. Got my hands on a Champion Caiman & was surprised how great it felt with my grip. It's got the micro-est of micro beads that I can barely see or feel.

Managed to get a quick round in before dark & am impressed so far. Its os for sure but not near the 2|0|4 stability on the stamp. I agree with the 5.5 speed. It really popped out of my hand fast for a mid.

I wanted the Champion for extra durability but the Star Caimans I saw there have got a killer stock stamp. Almost as cool as the DX Wraith stamp....almost.

My Buzzz OS has some competition right now.

Also each of them had that interesting texture on the rim that made me think blizzard plastic at first. Then as I took a closer look and feel, I realized that the texture is not unlike that on many of the current run 1.5 mortars - not blizzardy with air pockets, but some kind of texture to the rim that maybe resulted from the way it was injected... just spitballing here.
I noticed that blizzard like texture on a lot of the Star Caimans I saw yesterday. The discs were all 170-175g. Didn't see that texture on any of the Champions there. Odd.

Do Glow Champion Caimans exist? They should.

In the past couple of months I've really taken to my proto star Caiman. I did pick up a Champion flat top Caiman as a backup. However, what I'd really like to see is an XT Caiman now that it's getting colder outside. Plus, I'd be curious to see if an XT version would hit and stick or if it would still skip like my Star and Champion versions do.

A softer Caiman is exactly what i want! My star has already taken over many of my Xsoft Zone shots and im more confident in the Caiman. I just want one that has less skip for those touchier approach shots!

They're not easy to find, but a Frontline-X Mortar is basically a GStar Caiman. It's a little less OS but still very reliable.

Discsport here in Sweden have 37pc of Frontline-X Mortar in stock, and only 5 Euro in shipping

But is the Mortar really that close to a Caiman? . .i have a few of the Pink Grow Mortar and i was thinking of trying a FR Caiman just for fun
