Thanks! I added those pairings to the list of cross-compatible families. Plese, let me know if you know of others that aren't listed so I can add them as well. I may not have time to read through all your case studies to figure them out.

Has anyone tested if Sabre 53 and Sabre 58 are cross-compatible for heads?

I've got one here for recovery and I've got available donors from both families. But, the one that's the closest DCM and date match is actually from the opposite family.

Has anyone tried crossing heads between Bobcat and Lynx families? Ariel densities are 690 and 693, so very close indeed. Manufacture dates seem to overlap quite a bit and the family names are both wild cats (if that means anything).

I may need heads for a Lynx case and the Bobcat ones seem to be much more readily available.
