Specific heat and thermal conductivity in the superconducting state of the Kondo-lattice system CeCu2Si2 and the paramagnon system UPt3 point to substantial mass anisotropies at the Fermi surface (FS): while in CeCu2Si2 bare band electrons at certain portions of the FS seem to remain normal, in UPt3 heavier fermions seem to stay normal and Cooper pairs are formed by somewhat less heavy ones. The upper critical field of UPt3 shows no influence of Pauli limiting and can reasonably well be explained with S = 0 as well as S = 1 pairing. CeCu2Si2 is strongly Pauli limited, independent of orientation. This substantiates recent Josephson experiments which show that CeCu2Si2 is a singlet superconductor.
