    Yeah Dan Chase has very detailed forms. I just mounted a 8x28 inch wall pedestal that I got from Joe Coombs that worked really well with a lot of detail..

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Chase forms don't hold a candle to the other suppliers out there. Foam is pure crap, detail non-existent, muscle structures over accented. Most of the original line was stolen from someone else anyway. McKenzie carries a full line as does Joe Coombs or Danny Foster. At least they sculpted their own.

    BTW I've shot some really big Canadian bruisers and mounted a few more, but I've yet to see a 29 inch whitetail right under the chin.

    thanks to all for the replies, I have been using Joe's,but customer wanted something different. I found some Matt Thompson this a.m. Yes George I too have a problem with the other co.My personal opinion,not for anyone else to go by in making their choices. These measurements are from guide supposed to be accurate but we'll see, he has been on the money in the past. And it was 25 at the chin. still big huh??? my thoughts too.

    What George said about Chase. You might take look at Lancaster's Monster series sold thru TruFitt. Great for fit but lacking somewhat in "artsy flair".

    Delivery time depends on where you are, I suppose. Most of my Coombs forms are here24-48 hrs after placing the order. I am only 150 miles from him. I saw a guy mount on a Coombs 27" manikin at the MS workshop last Saturday...that thing was HUGE! He said the deer was from up north, and weighed over 300 lbs

    A friend and I went to Saskatchewan a few years back and he shot an absolute monster that weighed 375 pounds after field dressing it. It had a 27 inch neck under the chin. I used the Coombs form on it and it fit nicely. It still looks like a tank hanging on the wall with his other deer.
     
  13. Revolution Taxidermy Supply has one called the "Intimidator". It's a brute.

    8 X 26 1/2 X 31 1/2 and 8 1/8 X 28 X 33

    I like the look of alot of the Coombs forms. The face just does not seem to fit our local deer in any size. Things just aren't in the right place. I often lop the head off and change it out. Starting to like the Revolution forms more and more. Haven't tried the super big ones yet.

    Most definitely Revolution. They also have several different head sizes they can put on a form.

    LOL If you get one shipped to North Carolina from Canada, you'll likely have enough invested to mold your own. I've never heard of SIRIUS but I know there's a helluva lot of pirating going on up there with only one or two reputable suppliers.
