I think that the Canvas is an awesome organic throw. Is it as “good” as the Chief? For what? For just casual, comfortable throwing, the Canvas is as good as BvM. Would I use it for competition? Probably not - only because the Chief is just so stable and so forgiving - it makes my sloppy throws look good. I would, however, take a Canvas over an Arctic Circle in a heartbeat. Just my opinion.
I would also agree that most of the Canvas’ for sale are the ones that are single-color, dinged or engraved with morbid images. I do not see many splashy Canvas’s for sale. I have a Bip-Bop Canvas that you won’t get from me unless you pry apart my cold, dead fingers
