Severe backwardation in 12 month spreads? Need to look how the shorter duration flys are doing

Front several one months are negative, once you get to UVX, all the none-KMN and XZF flies are all around 2c for years. The XZFs are as tight as I've ever seen them all the way out, most around -4. In the 6 month flys prompt MZM is historically pretty wide but we're getting closer to expiry so anything could happen. All the others, and all the ZZZs are backwardated. z2mz is around 37 and z3mz around 25. Funny thing is I can tell you all that without looking but I couldn't tell you where outright prices is within $2.50 without checking!
