^same here. MF was pretty 1:1 to a CFII in shape and flight. They do have some dome so that gives it some added stability versus the flat glow MD4s.

My glo seasoned in super quick and lost all of its low speed fade. I got one of the first metal flakes out and it acts more overstable than my first run md5.

Tried:
Mortar. . not much more OS than my Glow MD4s
Drone. .same as the Malta, feels weird FH
Hornet.. odd feel and don΄t want OOP in the Bag
Caiman I found beat up a little quick if you want it to be your bookend OS mid.
I throw Bobcats and Gilas, both of which can be pretty meaty when new. Bobcats have a lotttttt of HSS, they fight out of flex lines and then have a solid fade. Gilas hold a little straighter and then dump hard, but Amber runs are more like baby firebirds. I also found Streamline Runways to be really OS when new. All of these are OS but have good glide and carry as well.

I tried an MD5 and Caiman together when I wanted something to replace my Frontline-x Mortar. The bead on the MD5 is really uncomfortable, in my opinion, so I went with the Caiman. They flew pretty much the same when brand new. My Star Caiman has held its stability just fine, although it's more of a utility disc so it isn't beating in terribly fast.

YMMV but I've got a Star Caiman where the stamp is almost worn off with how much I've used it, and it still has a very healthy amount of overstability. Have yet to feel the need to replace it with one of my backups.
