I have a guy who wants this pose, in the catalog the face looks a little small and narrow in proportion to the shoulders, or it might just the the angle of the picture. I was thinking about just ordering the normal Semi Sneak; 6500 series, and turning the head down for that aggressive pose. Anyone mounted on many of the 6400 aggressive poses? thoughts on the matter appreciated.

It must be the one in the pic because I just did one and the shoulders were too big, IMO. It was like a deer head on a bulls body.

It is nothing new to have that form questioned here again. Yes the face is skinny, use a change out head, makes it look so much better.

I've  Mounted two on the 6400 form, one head down and one head up (see post: Please critique (New to Forum) for pictures).
I really like the look of these forms.  Face did seem a little narrow but once every thing was in position it worked out pretty good.
As far as the shoulders go they are big, but the deer in the pics. is from Kansas so I didn't have a problem with the shoulders.  I am from S.C. so I could maybe see there being a problem with shoulder fit on a smaller deer.
I may give the change out head a try on my next one.

I have mounted on the 64D once, and the 64U at least a dozen times. Never had problems w/ shoulder fit on any of them.

Up here in Northern Minnesota I've used the 6400 series a lot.  Never had a problem with the shoulders.  If anything they are a bit small, and the heads are a bit skinny for our deer.  I usually up size the form and adjust the nose to eye distance, if needed.  Then it fits pretty good, without adjusting the neck sizes very much. Deer body sizes and types vary significantly throughout the country. Isn't there like 13 subspecies of Whitetails in the US? All different sized bodies and faces. Must be a nightmare for the supply companies.

I just mounted one and I had to broaden the head and especially the nose.  I should have ordered a change out head but I was already into mounting it and I didn't want to refreeze the hide.
